I've been pretty busy lately, my life has been going through a lot of change and not much time for experiments and photography. I thought I would start digging through some of my old files for photos that I consider accomplishments/advancements so I at least have something to contribute for a while.
Anyone else feel free to add pictures you're proud of :smile:

When the right light presents itself- Taranaki, New Zealand.

You have good reason to proud of those photos.

This is the last or my many World Trade Center Photos. It has great value to me as I witnessed the events of September 11th.

That's interesting and now of course I have to ask "what is it?" :smile:
I love the way the bokeh starts to form a pattern in the background!

Thanks! It's an Intel CPU LGA socket.

Maybe I should repeat my question :biggrin:
But I looked it up on google :smile:
I work with electronics on cars but haven't seen something like this before :)

You will probably recognize this then. It's a Porsche DME that I repaired/modified for a friend:

Yep, I've pulled quite a few ecu's apart, I'm only an auto electrician so my electronic expertise is limited to re-soldering dry solder joints but I always like to open them to see if there's anything I can fix .... or destroy !:smile:

Nothing special but I've always loved this shot of my cat, Benjamin...

It was a spur of the moment grab shot just as he started to yawn...

Like trying to make an image look like it is lit by fire rather than flash.
