I am so glad I don't have to work on tables like this...it's just easier working on a corpse on a slab with a designated sink. I can't imagine how it would have been with all the fluid gathering on the table like that...unless there's divets along the sides to go into the pipes holding the table (hidden under the dirt/moss)?

Still I love old mortuary items, and photography done so respectfully of such items. The colors are brilliant and I like how the focus is angled the way you have it. The other images via the link are just as amazing. Great job, and congrats on the DD.

Wow, it's great to have feedback from someone who actually works in a morgue!

Thanks for your comments :)

Just out of interest, do you see the circular blade in the foreground of the photo? Is that what I think it is?

I do see it, and it is. People in my specific line of work (embalming/funeral arrangement) don't use them, it would have been for an autopsy specifically. So a technician (more than likely) would have done the prep work for the doctor. That is the difference, it's usually a doctor that preforms autopsies as where morticians are not doctors (though we later do work on autopsy bodies when the doctor is done, go figure).

Actually, on second look, the room does look more like an autopsy room. especially if the item in the background is a lamp, we don't use them, but a pathologist would. Hmm, such an interesting photo!

To be honest, I've only really started using DeviantArt again and I have no idea what a DD is!? I'm just glad people are getting to see my work :)
