Tubes


You heard me, tubes.

Usual rules: no more than 1024 pixels on any one side, no more than 36 bit colour depth. No extreme porn because it's illegal in the UK.

Deadline: shall we say Monday 8th September.

There was no danger of that happening when I'm involved.

Although you all never understand the MAGNIFICANCE of my art and give me no votes, I will persevere because I am GREAT and you will one day WEEP at your lack of recognition of THE SHIT

It's political correctness gone mad!

And a big "hear hear" to Herring, whose call for tubes serendipitously led to this photo's being posted.

That's like a scene out of Blade Runner or Neuromancer or something. Wonderful. I dig the rust. It just gives it that "urban forgotten" je ne sais quoi.
Buy my books, dammit!

Hey, thanks! by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #15 Mon Aug 18, 2008 at 04:16:26 PM EST
The camera doesn't really capture the true urban ... decay is too strong a word, but you get what I mean. What I really want is for spacejack to visit my office and draw what he sees out the window. My view goes well with Apocalypse Summer, a print of which is hanging on my wall.

This was taken in automagical mode by an EOS Rebel XT with a zoom lens, zoomed to fit. Powers bottle, courtesy of blixco. The rum bottle is ours (and boy was it tasty). Afternoon sun courtesy of nature. Post-processing included halving the size and a gamma correction of 0.8, using the unix program xv on my iBook G4.

Picture embedding courtesy of hulver, and the "fancy editor == no" setting in display preferences.

Sorry about the linky... the uploady thing wouldn't upload it and scoop didn't want to embed it. I promise it's a wholesome family image. Taken with Panasonic Lumix FZ7 on a miserable day in a wheatfield in Dorset. Reduced in size and colour adjusted a wee bit.

with thanks to hulver for reminding me how to upload an image :)

Practical tubes! by R343L (4.00 / 1) #20 Sun Sep 07, 2008 at 04:57:59 PM EST
Part of the basement of the House of Things. I did not move anything into place, arrange anything or otherwise stage this. This is part of the actual basement. Picture not modified except to shrink it and up the brightness/contrast so you could see all the lovely useful tubes!

Meta-comment: thelittlestar.com seems to have become a spam/link-ad site - could you fix your .sig?

Thanks for that! I had forgotten that was even there. I will have to update the link when my new site is properly set up.

Mmmmm... Sweet, sweet depth of field. by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #23 Mon Sep 08, 2008 at 10:15:27 AM EST
My only wish would be for about twice as much of the central pi -- err tube to be in focus. But a delicious photo in spite of that.

hmmmm by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #24 Mon Sep 08, 2008 at 12:34:11 PM EST
I really like it with the tiny focus area... but... I like fuzzy...

I *do* like the way by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #26 Mon Sep 08, 2008 at 12:58:33 PM EST

clear focus makes a slick diagonal slash across half the picture. We just disagree on amount of fuzz.

Hmmm... Maybe I'd better shave...
