I did a first session of a vintage sword a blacksmith friend of mine took in for restoration. I’m following the sword through the restoration process. More later.

The sword was made by a company that evidently went out of business around 1860. This sword was in service, the best my friend could find, to Her Majesties Royal Guard, Buckingham Palace, London... It was a presentation sword for all the pomp and circumstance surrounding all things Royal in England. Don't know the exact history on when, but it's estimated around 1820-1880 and the sword has seen a lot of parade use. I'll be documenting the restoration steps until it's presented back to its current owner.

I also do a lot of wedding photography and love to bring the macro aspect into my client's day. The shot with the camera kinda blew me away as I didn't know that old brownie viewfinder would be that clear. Didn't have to do much at all to the actual image in terms of sharpening. Got kinda lucky being able to stretch the flash on the cord and get high enough to actually get everything in frame. The first shot, the ring was balanced, as I found out, on a barn door. Actually set up a travel tripod to do the shot and was dumbfounded for a second or two when I saw the ring swing in and out of focus as I was taking a few shots... Then I noticed, it was actually sitting on a rail that was part of a barn door and the wind was blowing it back and forth. Thank The Lord it didn't fall.

Yes Please, You do that. ;-)a
So the sword is 159 years old? That's going on one and two thirds of a century. It'll be interesting to see the finished product. :-)


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Very well done! Is the Bride, Groom, or both into photography? If so, even the more memorable for them.

Yes, the groom is a photographer. We did a trade out. He shot my wedding, I shot his. Worked out well. I’ll have a ton of images to post when I get the time.

Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.
