Off to the garage I went, and spotted this rusty pipe wrench. I then proceeded to rack my brain and the remainder of the house for an atypical backdrop. My concept morphed somewhat when I came across one of my stone cookie sheets. As I placed the wrench atop the stone, I realized the two appeared to be made of the same material, cool.
When I was first brainstorming about this concept, I was thinking about photographing an object in an unusual setting. So my first step was to find an item with visual interest.
