Sunday Stills - Numbers

Some more shots from the shearing trailer. With numbers ;-).



Again, I like the blur of his hand. I also like the focus on the ear.



An old scale.



Funny speckled face.



Numbers, just the same.



Another ear tag.



Burlap sacks, stacked and ready to fill.



Stuffed and stitched closed. I should have asked what these numbers mean.

Fun challenge - thanks Ed!

For a number of other Sunday Stills...

Good numbers choices, and I enjoyed both your shearing posts. :)

I'm sure the hash marks were tallying the number of sheep shorn at some point. Dale uses a click counter attached to the ceiling. His numbers were quite a bit higher than 54 ;-).

These turned out just gorgeous! The lighting is perfect, and yo ureally captured some unusual examples of plain old "numbers".
