    A nice theme for this week:
    Show your machines you use at home.
    Not the big ones like tractors, cars, bulldozers etc. - just the handheld ones or your kitchen tools like coffee machine, juice maker etc.

    Have fun

  3. An apple peeler comes in handy at this time of year:

    Dandy shot, Dave. Does it also remove the core?
  5. Thanks Bob. The machine does remove the core and cuts the apple in a big coil. The coil makes the apple easy to eat or a few cuts with a knife for pieces for a pie.

    Wow! Mmmh ... how?
    What a wonderful part of technique, well photographed, Dave.

    Thanks for showing
  7. Thank you Klaus.
  8. Neat device, well photographed. Where can I get one of these?
  9. Many places - Google knows all (most anyway).

  10. Take a look at some of the"antique apple peeler" either on a Google search or on eBay. They have a lot more visual/mechanical appeal.
  11. Thank you Jim. These devices are available under several names such as Johnny Apple Peeler ($20) at Amazon or Triple Action Apple Machine at Bed Bath & Beyond($20).
    I think the "antique peelers" are more expensive although they do look better. This machine works fine and unless you want something to have on display you won't be

    Hi Dave. I really like this image with composition, color and exposure. The machine seems useful and practical.
  13. Oh that is very well done, like the lighting. I was off line the other day, really liked your reflection water image, nothing beats calm water.
  14. Thank you Binnur!
  15. Thank you Tom. I'm glad you noticed the shot in the previous collective. I'm hoping to get some reflection shots when the fall colors peak here.
  16. Nice clear images with excellent focus and saturated colors. Anything that will do three things at once like this does has got to be good.
  17. Thank you Gordon.
  18. Does anybody else use a coffee grinder? I think freshly ground beans make a better tasting coffee than k-cups or pre ground coffee. Here is a photo of my old Solis coffee grinder:

    Not only do I grind my own coffee, I roast my own too.
