Sexy Revolver Got Critiqued

Sexy revolver taken with the Lensbaby Edge 50 on loan.

My revolver photo got featured in Bryan Peterson's website.  Whoo-hoo!

Critique of revolver image starts at 11:52.

Humanities class teaches that curves are passive while straight lines are aggressive.  Hence curves in images are usually rendered softly and straight lines are usually rendered sharply.  What do you get when you have both?  One conflicting sexy subject.

Perhaps, it is a controversial image.  It was one of the photos I submitted to Lensbaby when they asked me if I would be interested in using their lens for their website.  None of the photos I submitted were accepted.  Oh well.  But I think it's their loss.

Tower of London

The first great hotel for celebrities shot on iPhone 6.

The castle was used as a prison for celebrities who were considered persons of interest.  Many figures who had fallen into disgrace, such as Elizabeth I before she became queen, and Sir Walter Raleigh (inventor of the cigarettes),  were held within its walls. This use has led to the phrase "sent to the Tower". Despite its enduring reputation as a place of torture and death, popularised by 16th-century religious propagandists and 19th-century writers, only seven people were executed within the Tower before the World Wars of the 20th century.  Among those held and executed at the Tower were Anne Boleyn, Ozzy Osbourne and Geico Gecko.

Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan shot on iPhone 6.
Eilean Donan (Island of DonnĂ¡n) is a small tidal island. It truly is an island in a sense that the castle sits on thrrrree lochs (or lakes), Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the westerrrn Highlands of Scotland. 

The castle was founded in the thirrrrteenth century, and became a strrrronghold of the Clan Mackenzie and theirrrr allies the Clan Macrae, a staunch supporrrterrrr of the Jacobites. Those of you who arrrre big fans of the TV series The Outlanders arrrre well familiarrrrr with the Jacobites.

21st Century Man

Where do we go from here.

He will have no eyes because there is nothing to see.

He will have ears but they are there just for aesthetics.  He can only hear what he wants to hear.

He will have no sense of the future that holds for him because the now is all that matters.

His fashion sense will be dictated by corporate greed.

He will live his life but it will be meaningless.  Still, he would not even know it is meaningless.

His opinion is dictated by what others like him think of.  Mainly, apathy.

He will not be able to survive a day without wifi, Netflix and Siri.

Don't worry.

No, I promise they won't take Norman.

I think she may have put too much cheese

Spaghetti Vongole shot on iPhone 6

Italians will never put cheese on seafood pasta.  The owner is Italian but she knew I wanted cheese on mine.  She might have put more cheese than what usual customer wants.  But I love it that way.  She winked and told me she does that to her pasta too.  Bon appetito.

I finally got paid

Mahmoud and his irresistible smile.

Dear Mahmoud,

For over a year now you have been enjoying fame while I have not received a single cent from the photo I took of you.  Women have been asking me if you are available.  Available for what, I asked.  You have been invited to the White House and have a beer and chat with the president.  A rather strange invitation because I know the president hates beer.  He is more of a wine snob.  But that's another issue.  You fly all over the world to promote your body tonics.  People love to hear what you say even though they don't understand Arabic.  All these because of the photo I took of you.

You see I have patient all along.  And today,  I finally got paid.  Thank you, Mahmoud.

And so on and so forth

And so on and so forth.  Shot on iPhone 6.

The Current News on TV depress me.  And indulging in current stupid TV shows is not my thing.  Nowadays, the only thing I watched on TV is Perry Mason. The Black and White one.  The later colored series is pathetic - a fatter Mason with a toupee seems off.  But once in a while, I'll watch the Twilight Zone, which sort of inspired me to do this double exposure.   [Begin TV soundtrack here.]

It reminds of one episode where there were parallel universes.  Except in my own paltry rendition, the universes are off.  One is in Amsterdam, and the other is in Los Angeles.  Oh well.

I Got My Eye on Liverpool

The Eye of Liverpool located at the Albert Dock shot on iPhone 6.

Reporter (interviewing The Beatles):  So, is Ringo the best drummer in the world?

John (laughing):  Ringo is not even the best drummer in The Beatles.

Ringo:  Oh, come on, Johnny.  Let's not go there.  Just look at the way they cleaned up Liverpool. We now have an Eye that is so much better than the Eye of London.

George:  Yeah, too bad Paul is dead.  He would have loved to  see this.
