I used to do whole posts showcasing photos from our visits to various antique shops. I still have a lot of unprocessed photos, but some are redundant, some are ho-hum, and some deserve a post of their own.
The latter is the basis for my decision to do a series called “Just Stuff”.
It will be a series of unrelated photos that might have, or might not have been treated with various effects and enhancements. Some are fairly straight forward. Some will take a shot at making people laugh . . . or at least smile.
Basically, they are photos that caught my eye, and I played with them to present and preserve them here. They will also be added to THIS GALLERY in SmugMug as each post is published.
The Photo In This Post
The above is a blow torch, and more specifically, a Turner Blow Torch. Judging from the photos I’ve seen around the web, this one is either in excellent shape, or a more recent version (or, perhaps, a reproduction) of same. I could not find a Wikipedia entry specific to Turner’s torches.
However, if you buy a vintage blowtorch, then THIS SITE might be of interest to you.
I should clarify in case it is not obvious . . . I added the writing on the photo, the title is my own, and it’s not really an early cigarette lighter, although I am sure it could be used as such.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
