    What Am I?

    For my first entry I thought i'd start out with a little game...

    you all remember "What Am I?" right?

    so here goes....

    I am black, although some of my brethren come in chrome or shinny steel.
    I sit at the junction between solid and liquid
    I pivot and move
    I enjoy flying down the road, feeling the wind on my smooth surface and the firm, warm touch of my companion
    I am strong though sometimes my existence has ended abruptly and I find myself laying in shattered ruin by the side of road
    I am an essential (one could even say ÔÇ£pivotalÔÇØ) part of the whole
    I am responsible for imparting forward momentum to the assemblage of which I belong

    What Am I?

    here it is again only in blue, note this was not done by photoshopping it, I used a different color temperature setting in the camera, shooting RAW as above and faster shutter speed. Also in the one above I used both slow and rear curtain with a longer exposure and discovered the flash actually would then flash twice, at the start of the shot and end, so by using an off-camera flash cord I could move the flash between firings to get a more even lighting. I shot these looking INTO the mirror of the LT while holding a white sheet behind the handle bar in the first one, so you would not see anything else in the reflection. The blue shot being so much darker I didn't really need to. I used a 90 mm fixed lens and large F stop to ensure shallow depth of field shooting close up.

    Camera mounted on tripod in both shots.

    handle two
    in blue.

    one, or perhaps you could view it as two, the pusher (finger) and the pushed (shutter release button) of the quintessential elements of any successful photographic effort

    again with 90 mm lens shooting into a mirror, bathroom this time, on tripod, close crop. No flash.

    This is a really cool shot, very imaginative. I am entirely impressed by your immaculately groomed fingernails.

    techno mumbo jumbo

    In smugmug mode, I cropped my Pi photo to see what it would look like without the trees on the left and whammy, it's been in changed ad infinitum. I suppose I'll be kept awake tonight thinking about URL's and how they are part of the "big picture" .............

    RM- I like that blue twist!!!

    two contributions: both taken near the gates of Halifax DND (Dept of National Defense), and judging from the many signs that said "No Cameras Allowed" I kept my focus away from their gaze - I was clearly being watched. Anyway, shot one (through a link/barbedwire fence) is a load of freight car train wheels..... elements seeking utility. -Bob

    ...secondly, a piece of pipeline intent on evolving into a 'gateway' in a larger system. I could not get rid of that pole because of other items to the left. -Bob

    While taking my first picture, a jet was flying overhead on final approach so I took a shot.

    Thirsty?

    This is what I ended up with. Shots like this are hard with a high-megapixel but BASIC digital camera. I think I may have to dig out my 3.3MP which had far more shooting options, and would probably be better stopping the motion in this case. I'm not excited about the blurring, but c'est la vie.

    Element

    Many artistic and creative submittals to these photo assignments.

    However, I just do not think "outside the box," (pun intended!)

    Oh my! Why thank you!
    I was going to have then polished just for this occasion but the manicurist was all out of the more "manly" colors, except for something called "Sissy Pink" and well that's just NOT my color! Ha Ha!
