I dunno... the birth of a pipe that he's going to enjoy. Most pipe smokers rarely see that for any of their pipes. I've never seen that. I think I'm with Goose on this one. It's like an ultra sound of your baby in the womb.FredS wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:07 pmThis is your thread Goose, so you can do with it what you wish, but I think perhaps you titled it incorrectly. Or your intention has wandered since then. Clarification is in order. Do you want to see our favorite pictures of pipes or pictures of our favorite pipes? 'Cause I gotta tell ya, that picture of your pipe in progress is not all that endearing or artistic. I'n not commenting on the pipe - I'm sure it'll be a nice one - but the photograph itself.
I understand that pipe makers do see that often enough that it has little appeal but that doesn't devalue the experience for the rest of us. I understood exactly what it was when I saw it and I understand the appeal. It does qualify as a favourite picture of that pipe. The picture will live on as it is. The pipe will become something more.
Do you think this is encouraging posting pics of blocks of briar and ebonite rod?
