    Makin' Sparks

    Day 09: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Canon 500D, EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, full EXIF here, PAD slideshow here.

    Woodworkers talk about "Makin' sawdust," as if that's the point of working in the shop. It does sometimes seem to be the only result.

    I keep a cutoff wheel on my old chop saw so I can cut metal, and it makes interesting sparks, so I thought I'd try to capture them. I couldn't use flash, since freezing the action is the opposite of what I wanted. This is using only the overhead fluorescent lights, plus, of course, the light of the sparks themselves.

    C&C most welcome.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Good one Rick, the sparks have much more impact than the sawdust shot from awhile ago.

    Unfortunately, no, the old mastoid infection has flared up over the last few days so I silently withdrew. I am really enjoying seeing the work you are all putting in and there are some fine images shaking out of this exercise.

    Had a wee "PC Emergency" just before a fishing boat sailed today -- so I had to use my "insurance shot" taken on the iPhone this morning. Who can guess what it is?

    Many thanks to the well wishers. I seems to have worked...that and the antibiotics kicking in...I feel much better today and I get my iMac back tomorrow.

    Colin I agree with Rob but would add that it appears to be frost on the rear screen before switching the heating elements on

    Aplication for Heaven

    I did some urbex shooting at my (former) school. Though this one doesn't have that specific urban feel and atmosphere I still like this one very much.
    What do you think?

    Edit: missed a "p" in the title
    Edit2: I'm really sorry to here your story Steve. I hope you get well soon.

    What do I think? I think if you're going to university then perhaps you should study photography/design. I'm very impressed recently with the quality and imagination of your shots (and it takes a lot to impress me). Still can't believe you are just 18.

    Excellent shot!

    Vanity

    I was rushed today (hard to say that when you are retired). This one took me about 15 mins, including setting up, shooting (one shot) and editing. Used the Panasonic G1 - what a brilliant little camera for £500. Anyone want to buy a 5D?

    I'm glad you're feeling better, Steve: no reason not to join back in, is there?

    I like the guys on the cherry-picker, Kit: lots of intersecting lines, and the one guy kind of standing back. I imagine they're careful of each other so as not to push the other guy into the hot line.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Thought I'd indulge in some high contrast B&W for a change!

    I lie, it was all I could come up with....

    So, the tops of willow blowing in my garden, and a close up of steel beads set into a decorative mirror in the lounge.....
