Haven't been able to smoke recently, so taking photos has been my hobby lately.

This may sound redundant if you've just read my post about your Ardor pipe, but that is the most beautiful Stanwell I've ever seen. Thanks for posting the pics!

Thanks Uber!
That Stanwell is proof that an affordable pipe can out shine some heavier competition. Now, if I could just find another one!

Cool! I'd like to meet Peder Jeppesen. The article in the recent P&T issue about an event he attended at The Briary made me interested. He sounds like a nice guy.

I like it too! This one has the most shockingly thin and comfortable stem of any pipe I've had the pleasure to smoke.

The first one that is the freehand - is that the block of briar it came from? And is it a rest for it now?

Just wondering because it is really cool.

Yup. This one's Danish, but I've seen some Japanese carvers do the same kind of thing. Can't figure out how though...

This is a different one (not mine). A bidding war broke out over it, so I didn't bid, but you can see it from another angle.

Tell us about this freehand with lovely antler stem, and maybe a few more shots?
Those shots are pretty good for an amatuer! I can not seem to get the flash right on my point & shoot. Might have to try with my wife's good Canon digital SLR

That one was posted by someone else, I can't remember who. As far as using the flash goes, I try to avoid it. Flash photography tends to distort the actual colors of the pipe, and sometimes looks kind of harsh. Diffused natural light works best for me.

Yes, and the Stanwell has a finish similar to Tom Eltang's "golden contrast", so I call it a poor man's Eltang.
The finish does bring out the grain nicely.

Thank you!
Taking photos of pipes has been a learning process, and a lot of fun.

I love that Charatan. I've always loved their double comfort stems. When I get to carving halfway decently; I want to make a DC Stem in acrylic. I've owned a few Charatans and that DC Stem is really comfortable to bite down on. I also have a few Benwades in the same Charatan styles, and they are also just as comfortable, but have a simple vulcanite stem without the double drop down bit.

Thanks guys!
That Stanwell is still a favorite. Those pics are some of the earliest pipe photos I had taken, and the grain on the Stanwell is one of the things that really kick started the collecting bug for me, as well as the photo hobby.
