Gas Light

Gas Light - Location Portraits
From the "Shop that Time Forgot Series"

Shop manager David lighting the Gas Light.

This shop in my village has been in the same family since 1929. Its a shop were computers haven't yet been invented, orders and sales are written in a ledger and you can still buy hardware measured in imperial not metric. To quote a fellow villager:

"We were down the back of the shop when we moved to the village looking for screws for a very old Singer sewing machine and I noticed that some of the boxes holding the screws and nails were marked in shillings and pence!"

I took this portrait of David using a Nikon D200 set at 1600 ISO using the light of the gas lamp to light David.
