The Model Builder

Red Hook Bait and Tackle, Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY

The model builder here is actually a part of a lamp.  I don't recall if the lamp actually worked or not, but  I was impressed by the workmanship in the carving of the lamp's base here.  He has quite an expressive look on his face as he builds his model.   I would not put this lamp in my living room, but it didn't seem out of place at all amongst the taxidermy and other objects displayed at the Red Hook Bait and Tackle Shop.

    1. Thanks, Jack. This bar was amazing with all the artifacts and taxidermy on display. Everywhere you looked there was something to photograph.
