Rusty Power

Rusty Power

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.

Abstract 5:0

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.

Breeze, Light

Breeze, Light

For this week’s FlickrFriday challenge “Second Wind” and Macro Mondays challenge “High Key”.

To get the high key effect, I used the white space of Macro Monday’s discussion of the theme as the background, and used a full-spectrum light on the front of the fan, from off to the right. This really brought out the texture.
