    I don't know what a hoggstabbe is in English. It's the big piece of wood you put the small pieces of wood on when you chop wood.
    This axe sits in the hoggstabbe:

    We call it the "chopping block". That term also has idiomatic connotations: something that will lead to liquidation, as in the company is losing money, so our jobs are on the chopping block. Judging by the intense blue background, this must be more of that velvia, eh?

    Ah! Of course.
    And yes, that's more of the velvia, helped by the 85mm.
    I just saw all the slides on the wall using my dad's old Leitz, and this scanning business really doesn't do them justice at all. Which makes me wonder about the b&w neg scans as well. I don't think I'll want to scan and print, I'll want to make proper copy.

    It looks like something the headsman would use for an execution in medieval times. (with a bigger axe:eek: )


    Great detail in both the log and the axe. Love the color.
