Through The Eyes of a Welder...

     One of my absolute favorite subjects to capture is the craft of welding. There is something about it that separates it from all other forms of machine-oriented labor; there is an innate facet of welding that makes it almost surreal. Perhaps this quality is manifested in the sheer power of the blue spark, the heart of the light, whose energy is so dangerous to the human eye that welders must wear masks in order to protect themselves.

     Despite the magnanimous surge of radiance-saturated power, the art of welding is a process of creation. To harness such power with the intent of creating something is rare, as human nature often yearns to wield power only with the desire of using it to benefit himself alone.
