Slinky view

Today I was asked to bring in my camera to take some pictures for work. I was at a different building than the one where I usually work and I sat at someone else’s desk. I like toys, You should see what my desk looks like. And when someone has a toy on their desk I am drawn to it.

This desk had one of those Slinkys that you get from a Trade show. I looked at it and its multicolored coolness. I then through to myself, I wonder what it would look like if I put one end of the slinky over my lens and the other end on the floor. Let me tell you, if you want to screw with your camera’s automatic focus try taking a picture of a slinky through one end. The dang thing wouldn’t stop moving and so the focus went nuts. I switched to manual focus and then took a few pictures. I put a black backed mouse pad on the floor to get that dark tunnel effect.

Here is s a bonus shot,
I am posting bonus images to my Flickr Pro account from now on.

Allison made a blog post today about some really creative jewelery. She finds some really cool stuff and forwards it to me. I always tell her, “you should blog about this hon.” today she did. Allison is a very good writer (she corrects half my stuff) and has some great insight into the Internet. Please visit her at Sparky’s View.

I never thought that a picture of a well cooked steak would generate so many comments. Thank you so much everyone for commenting on yesterday’s PAD.

  1. I’m glad I read further. I thought you had gotten stuck in a drain pipe or something when I first saw that picture.

    Yep, I sat there thinking, I wonder what a slinky would look like if I took a picture with one end on the lens. And now I know.
