  • Replied in A square wheel
    Hi Andre- no, the purple fringing goes.  When I do finally print the image it will have been converted to black and white, with the fringing removed. I mostly wanted to show how very monochrome the ...
  • Created discussion thread A square wheel
    Mavic Reflex front wheel from my beloved DeRosa Nuovo Classico, ca. '94. This a color file, brushed silver wheel on a black surface. Off-camera flash fired manually (hence the lengthy exposure) in ...

  • Created discussion thread A fork and a plate redux
    Golly, I like the word redux . A ways back I showed this- Fork, plate, etc. Since I dropped my ice cream cone  (and cut my finger badly in an unrelated incident)   I haven't felt much like ...
  • Thanks  detritus, corg, merops, and Tord- I saw it in color, the B&W worked better, but this is more what I thought I saw (?) A bit overcooked, perhaps Could be part of my upcoming  "I never met a ...

  • Iron-will determination, complete dedication to the craft, and knowing there were several more containers (various flavors) in the freezer. :)
  • Thank you, kind sir. Several lifetimes ago I shot for, worked at, managed, or represented  studios doing a lot of product photography.  We made it look good. But I always wanted it to look bad ...

    we all scream for ice cream. Especially when the cone hits the sidewalk ... Mmm- vanilla with chunks of dark chocolate, twigs, and bits of whatever ... I ate the whole darn container and  probably ...
