It sounds like the name of a male dancer, but it’s really the negative charge clamp for my car’s battery. Tricks of the ambient light make the greenish areas look like they’re radioactive and glowing, and the forward bolt look three-dimensional.

For FlickrFriday’s “Numbers” and Macro Mondays’ “Member’s Choice: Abstract Macro” challenges on Flickr.
I set the zoom to max on an LCD digital display for granularity and turned it on its side to twist the viewpoint. It looks a lot better and more abstract full size than in the thumbnail, with an interesting mix of red, green, and blue.

At Carbone’s Ristorante in Hartford, CT.
Summer berry shortcake. Apparently they’re good judges of how much their guests can eat. The shortcake was tiny and I would have wished it were bigger if I had any room left.
Clam chowder with chives and bacon. Extremely good.
Autographed celebrity photos. Chubby Checker, Harry Anderson, and two I don’t recognize.
