X - Xyloglyphy (wood-carving)

Last summer I photographed a wood carver at Ross Farms, a living farm museum located in Nova Scotia. He was carving spoons to be used as props for an upcoming movie. I sent 5 other photos of his work on September 3, 2009 and you can check those out on my Photo of the Day Blog.

As he worked and explained the process, I made close-up and wide angle shots of him as he started the bowl of a spoon. The gentleman showed his skill as he used specialized tools to slowly shave the wood from the piece of wood. I liked the close-ups of hands at work!
