This old pump came with our place and probably has been here since around 1930. I decided to use sepia tone for my self-portrait. It is 27°F
and partly cloudy today.

    Very eloquent. I remember pumping water from one of those (and drinking it) at my great uncle's home in the early 50s. They are fascinating.

    an excellent choice of sepia in this portrait. I wonder if the pump still works. Nice capture by the way.

    Thank you all so much for the comments...El Go, the pump probably still works but there hasn't been any water in the cistern for several years.

    This is a great photo with an antique look to it with the sepia. Excellent choice for this subject of an old pump : )
