Trucks at night, long exposure

Last night my friends at WNC Paving were working on a road in Haywood County,  North Carolina which gave me a good opportunity to do some night photography. This picture was a fifteen second exposure, 17mm, ISO-500, f/11. I fired a flash when the dump truck that I wanted to freeze was in front of the camera.

A poor rhyme

 

Knife makers struggle and yearn for the P

P as in publicity

There’s a maker that wants to be unknown

Signing his work just makes him groan

A strange duck is he, seeming to want anonymity

 

Advice is futile, especially from you

He has his cake and he eats it too

He makes ‘em big, he makes ‘em little

But ask him to sign, and he’s non-committal

To tell it true…he makes what he wants, that’s all he’ll do

 

It’s odd that he won’t sign his work

I suppose it’s some sort of quirk

So back in the woods, in a shop on a hill

There’s a knife maker that does what he will

I’ll quit now and not be a jerk, just in case he should go berserk

 

 

Below are two unsigned knives by the unknown knife maker. The sheaths are by Bob Wiggins who does sign his work on the back, although in VERY small letters.
