My Year in Photos 2012
Del Re’s grinding truck occasionally rolls through town, ringing its bell, offering to make your implements nice and sharp, although I scratched up the photo a little bit with some texture.
very well done contrast: scratched and sharp at the same time.
I’d come running faster if the truck had ice cream in it. 🙂
I was thinking the same thing as Val…lol, you know where are hearts belong! Very cool processing!
I’ve never lived in a neighborhood where a grinding truck visited but I’ve seen them in other places. They always seem so much a throwback to days long gone……..but I guess not!
I like the grain you introduced – it adds to the olden feel.
I remember one of these in the suburbs and am surprised that this guy comes to Brooklyn. I’ve seen articles written about him (and his truck) as a throwback to a bygone era.
Nicely done . . . ice cream sounds pretty good about now 🙂
We have those trucks too. I’ll take a photo soon.
I’d prefer ice cream too, but I suppose if I had an axe to grind it’d be a different story. Great truck and a cool presentation.
Wish this truck came down our street before dh tried to sharpen my yard shears!
We don’t have such mobile services where I live..guess our population isn’t dense enough to make it pay! All the perks of city living!!!
I like your grungy presentation of the grinding truck, wonder if he has many customers.
The thumbnail looked like it was a Matchbox car I have. When my skates need sharpening I now know who to call!
What a great convenience! Like your processing.
My parents used to complain that the sharpening guy no longer came by, what a treat! I think I’d purposely dull up something just to meet him. Glad you are playing with textures.
really look oldfashioned to me, a wonderful old car. I would love for one of those to drive by my house 🙂
Lizzie Borden took an axe! Love that you grunged up the photo a little bit too.
I remember the grinder who used to come around to our neighborhood two of three times a year, My grandmother would have him sharpen her sewing shears.
