Ignore the rest of the post - I now have a dedicated Stock Photo Gallery for you to browse: gallery. Enjoy!
Gold. Well, Brass - but it looks like gold. Except the gears would be too soft were they gold. Hmmm.
This macro photo of a gear train can be yours for the low low price of $30.00 USD. Arrangements via Pay Pal. Source image is RGB jpg, 3504 x 2336. Royalty free, but requires you notify me what publication/site it is being used at, and sample of final print if used in a printed publication*. It is your responsibility to make sure the colors print OK in CMYK.
A few things to note - this came from a residential water meter register, USA. You can see (in the background) the numbers the register used - it’s odometer style. I have several photos like this, but am not going to list them. Let me know if you’d like to see others.
*Why? Because, I’m vain. No, just kidding : ) Because I’d like to have samples of my work to show to people. I’d always credit the graphic designer who designed the publication.
