I noticed a lot of people have been discovering my blog through search engine results for “welding,” or “welding sparks.” Not wanting to disappoint you with my Welder post, I decided to oblige with some of the photos I took for reference when painting that commission. I hope this helps you, mysterious Google searchers.
A big thank you goes to 4th Street Fabrication for making these photos possible.
P.S. Don’t worry about that “never look directly at the arc while welding” thing. I was wearing a welding helmet when I took these pictures, so my eyes were protected. The screen on my digital camera was bright enough for me to see through the darkened lens, and thus I was able to see what I was taking pictures of. My eyes were protected and perfectly safe.
