That's a big pot to be working with. I'd like to have some cheese please. I like the old distressed B&W effect. A good entry for the challenge.

You could certainly make a great deal of cheese in this huge pot, JimBob. They have highlighted it nicely placing it inside the the brick walls. I really like Your framing on this.

In the past, these kettles were used in Africa too Jimbob, but they had a completely different goal my friend, lol.

Good one again!

That thing is huge - to stir the contents must have been quite tiresome. Nice for the b/w challenge Jimbob.

I love cheese in any shape or form! Looks like a lot of work went into making it, though! Great vintage look and good entry for the B&W challenge.

This looks quite authentically old - you did a great job on the ageing !
What an enormous kettle/pot.
On the list for Wednesday - thank you :)

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I think you'd get full from just licking the spoon clean. A good capture of the scene and great post work on the image, Jimbob.
