Default Contrast - everything old is new again



I spent all day trying to come up with something (I was supposed to be working ops: ), then wandered all over the house and still came up blank. I'm embarrassed to say this is the best I can do until something smacks me in the forehead.

You caught a contrast in type of soda, it's highlighted by a contrast of color, and I really like the way you allowed only the smallest necessary amount of the second container to peek out.

The new can is nowhere near as charming as the older one. I was excited about the clarity of detain my new lens picked up - you can read the bottling co. backwards through both layers of glass.

Default Cool

Cool and very subtle in the detail.

Nicely done,

I meant to ask you about that, then forgot! I'm so glad you just explained it because I was likely to do again what I did when I first saw it: all but stand on my head and turn myself inside out in an effort to decipher it. :shock:

Johnstown, PA

I can actually read and write backwards and upside down (but if I do it right-side-up and forwards, people have a hard time reading it! )

Default Galileo

Galileo, 1564-1642, the Italian astronmomer and physicist could write and read backwards. I suspect you are a very special, gifted individual. Perhaps, you might enjoy the Italian movie Bread and Tulips, which is available on DVD and video.

LOL,

ohenry and PeterP, you are so right about the english language! New lenses aren't that great, but considering I'm graduating "up" from fully-manual Gemini lenses for my old K-1000, these are two Sigma AF Aspherical Macro lenses, 28-80mm, 70-300mm.
