Giorgio Ghezzi 2009-12-16 21:07:43
Did you buy it?!?


wonderful silhouetted lines.

Thats a funny title because I immediately came up with the words "3 lock box" , a song, in my mind when I saw it, before reading the title.

Not a box, not a lamp, not a shade ... this is infact the original "Beam me up Scotty" platform from the Starship Enterprise

Hey! I want this! :)))

Simple lines, but absolutely elegant, indeed! :)))

Gremxul 2009-12-16 22:41:01
That's quite a lampshade - looks like a staircase at thumbnail size.
As for Christmas cards, I drove off to do some shopping earlier through dense fog and rain and an hour later drove back through a wonderful Christmassy snowscape .... and didn't have the camera with me :-((

but it's in a box. I like this lampshade. i think the narrow DOF does well to exploit the light and form.

kweaver2 2009-12-17 02:33:00
love your abstracts.... so simple and elegant.

thank you :-)

5D mark II is a little slower in AF (so far I have experienced). The 40D focused almost instantly in concerts and such... but I have to struggle a little more with the 5D mark II.... so far. I guess it maybe because the 5D can see more than the 40D... I must check it out. Also 40D is 6 fps...
40D is a great camera and can really take some punches... also great for a backup sport photography...
The 5D how ever is better at everything else. Superb in ISO and details. Just set the ISO on auto and don't worry about a thing. I am really impressed.

And..... NO.... that little devil wakes us up twice in the middle of the night... os me and wife shift for feeding him... I'm glad when he becomes 18 and I can kick him out ;-)

That's a stunning piece of household furniture, never thought it would be a lamp shade. Super shot.

It's like we're seeing a Roman sarcophagus, but in modern times, very stylish in it lines, materials and shapes ... Excellent objet

I've seen a sargophagus too, there is a mysterious atmosphere in this image: the light, all that black around....I imagine that something may happen at any moment
