Often when I am struggling to find something to photograph I go into my husbands workshop & look around at all the tools he has hanging around. I asked if he had any squares & he pulled out a half dozen that were handy. There was a history with each one: this was my dad's, this one was your dad's, these two I bought & I got this one from Uncle Johnny :) He has modern tools, but also a number of antiques. As he stood at his workbench he had this smaller square he hangs on his tool belt and for some reason I thought of the 1986 pop song 'Hip To Be Square". You can get inspiration from the strangest places :)
My settings were: F5 1/6sec iso 400 @ 56mm w/ 18-135mm Canon lens. Boosted contrast, overhead lights w/ window light coming from the right.
