Cart, Blanche by David McMahon

Canvas Prints

Small (12.0" x 8.0")

Available to buy on…

This miniature souvenir is a replica of a Malaysian buffalo cart.

I was struck by the precision of the tiny model – and by the wonderful sweep of the roof.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, focal length 125mm.

    Fantastic craftsmanship! I thought it was full size (and on exhibit) when I first looked at it. Nicely spotted David.

  • The craftsmanship (in such miniature detail) was superb, Jordan. It’s really interesting to read that you thought it was full size.
