Red Stout

Oil Can Project – OCP17

When I started this project over a year ago, one of the first oil cans I found was a yellow, stout looking little can. Late last year I found the yellow can’s red big brother. The cans are pretty much the same but this one has a longer nozzle. I realize the color is unimportant in these B&W images but if you compare the two ‘stout’ images you can envision the color associated with each one.

Oil Can Project – OCP15

  

July? My last post related to this project was back in July 2018? Damn! The sad part of this comment is that I went on a spree a few months ago and found quite a lot of new subjects but the inspiration to photograph them never struck. Luckily, yesterday was another consignment shop excursion and I walked away with this beauty. I assembled my setup for capturing these images and went to town on all the oil cans I haven’t photographed. Fair warning… there will be more to come. 🙂

Oil Can Project – OCP13

A forgotten gem in my collection.I captured some images of this can a long time ago but never was happy with the results. Sadly, I never set it back up for the re-shoot. What was I thinking?

Oil Can Project – OCP12

Wow! It has been a little over two months since my last post for my Oil Can Project. That is too long of a delay! What have I been doing? Well, whatever it was, I definitely need to get back on this project. Although, I suppose I need to find more display space as my current shelf is getting a little full.

This latest little gem is from a good friend of mine. We worked together for a couple of years before I jumped ship a few weeks back. I missed seeing him before I left on my last day and we have been trying to get together to catch up. Funny how it appears you have a lot of free time but when you need to coordinate a few hours to meet up, the hours never align.

Well, after listening to me drone on about this project he must have decided to contribute to my habit rather than keep suggesting I attend those meetings… flea market anonymous. I was never going to go to a meeting, I heard they didn’t have cake…

Thanks Bob! This one is a great addition to my collection. I was able to find this same model on the “Plews & Edelmann” website. I was hoping for a cool name but this is how it is listed: “Oiler, Pistol, 6oz., 6″ Rigid, Base Holder”. Amazingly, it still looks exactly like this one, but without any of the character of this little guy. BTW – We still need to get together to catch up!
