Weighted Down

My friend Thane, who is a real gadget guy and collector of many things, came up to me a while back and told me he had something I might want to photograph.  Knowing him, this could have been anything from a Civil War era coin to the actual Delorean used in the Back To The Future movies. He handed me a tone arm counter weight from one of the turntables he has. He told me he thought I might like to take a couple macro shots of it.

As it just so happens, I did. I used a few different colored lights to illuminate it and I think the outcome was pretty cool. I have to admit I like to take an everyday item and photograph it in a way that makes it more interesting than if you just looked at the object in the normal setting where it is found.

What do you think?
