  1. I have a compass just like that made out of brass. I like the way you handled this shot. A lot of thought behind it indeed.

  2. Really nice details.

  3. It is a cool shot, I like the shadows.

  4. I love that compass. What is it’s history? Great photo, Madelaine.

  5. Love this, Madelaine, very cool compass!

  6. Great photo for the theme!

  7. Great looking old compass with a lot more character than a GPS! Nice shot, Madelaine!

  8. Good shot for the theme! I like photos like this–they’re great to have tucked away in your files for incorporating into all sorts of compositions.
