The Weekend in Black and White



Gas (Butane)

Cans in a cage.
We have no piped gas, so these cans are much in demand for cooking.
I have a gas cooker - never affected by seasonal power-cuts!

I love the way utilitarian objects like this work so well for a photographic subject.

You know how I love the linear and shots like this. It is wonderful. All that wiring around the containers gives off great shadows, too. You are the best at this. genie

we don´t have much of this in Sweden. An educational shot I´d say. :)

In Norway, gas isn't used that much for cooking. Lovely shot.

I really like how you photographed this. It looks so great with the lines and shadows, especially since they are "only" gas cans! Have a wonderful weekend.

Love the detail in this shot, Dragonstar. No sure I would enjoy rolling the cyclinder over to the gas jet though!
