DAMASCUS

I found this unusual still life in a shop window in Las Vegas, New Mexico on a recent visit. I shot it with my iPhone and processed it in Snapseed on my iPad Air 2.

Those old treadle sewing machines were a real work of sreampunk art. Both my grandmothers used to work minor miracles on them while I played on the floor at their feet.

I loved the way the heavy iron machines could be made to disappear into their own wooden cabinet when not in service.

Working on this image has brought back a flood of memories from long ago.

  1. We had a treadle too in Fort Worth. It sewed a very accurate and fine seam. Ours was a “Singer”.
