    This guy is a physics professor. His real name is Don Speed. Weird, huh.


    M4-P with 35mm Ultron, trix, 6.5 minutes in hc110b at 20C
  2. Speed, Huh? That does have a better ring to it than Professor Distanceovertime!:biggrin: When I was in college the head of the music department was a Dr. Clinkscale!
  3. 'Dr. Speed' has an interesting ring to it, too!

  4. One of the highest minds world has ever had... Would you have ever said it?

    A lot of his students think Don looks Einsteinish. He used to play up the hair thing (he's had white hair since he was 38.) I had a girlfriend who wanted him just because he looked like Einstein! Whatever. :Wink:

    Don, by the way, is an avid photographer. He's the only guy I know, irl, who has the F6 camera like you do Dino. He's also big into astro-photography. He has several telescopes, and runs the school's 14 inch.

  6. chris,
    nice shot
    i always loved physics
    even pre-med at the university of miami, i took many physics classes.... math was always my thing

    Could'nt resist general drift of this thread.This is a local victorian pub named after Prince Albert,Queen Victoria's husband.The publican ,being a humorous type,decided to put Einsein's hungover face on the sign.It's a very popular pub,but patronized by lesser mortals than Einstein(before 10PM that is,:biggrin:)
