A nude figure stands amidst various industrial machinery. A filing cabinet, with all of it’s drawers ajar, sits to the right. A saw, with several old blades stack on top of it, towers on the left. She leans against a gritty metal platform.

I like numbers (but not words) in my photographs. I sometimes hide numbers beginning with a 1 or a 2 (ten through twenty-nine) in my images. The letters O, P, and Q correspond to numbers that appear, in sequence, in two places in this photograph. The three numbers are handwritten on the circular saw blade to the viewer’s left of the main subject. The numbers are embossed, in sequential order, on a plaque affixed to the saw’s metal stand.
