I took a course in building log houses near Ely, Minnesota. We learned how to chisel out notches and joins so the logs would fit correctly as you see in the image.
It fit correctly!! :))
What a great portrait, he has so much character in his face!

Your processing complements the subject very well. I like how you've captured the builders concentration on the task.

I didn't think people still built log cabins, but it's great that these skills are still being passed on - must be great to be able to do this....like people did for centuries.

Great portrait. The moment was very well captured, and it's possible to see the man's concentration on what he's doing. The processing is very good too.
Excellent work Michael

@Judy: I've been looking for a chance to use this b/w version for a while. Thanks, Judy. Had no idea anyone would remember the color version. I'd almost forgotten it.
Yes indeed, I remember this one and am enjoying it just as much the second time around...

@Lorraine: Many thanks, Lorraine. Glad you like the b/w version.
Beauté d'un savoir faire...

Very good document and image. I like very much the composition and the b/w.
You have to take care! The chisel is dangerously near of the sensible part :))

I hope you will give a copy of this photograph to this craftsman. It's lovely. Or, perhaps I should say it's manly and rugged.

Fantastic, full expression shot! I hope that you began the nice series under the title: the "People of the work"...:)

Very good working-picture. Fine detailed and in beautiful fresh light. Well done. Bye.

I always wanted to do that. Unfortunately, I'm a bit too old for that now!
