This was inspired by Selvin's abacus. I'd been thinking in terms of bar codes until the abacus appeared. Look for "pure design", she said.

Nice strong diagonals. But a battery-operated slide rule?? :shock:

It's a battery-measuring Vernier caliper, actually. Perhaps I'll produce my slide rules later (I was thinking about it already!)

Hey, I like that idea of a battery operated slide rule. Don't knock it at least for now. After all who would have thought a pet rock would have sold.

Alan,

I agree, nice diagonals. However, I think a closer shot might have more impact.

Once I stopped thinking about what this was, I started paying attention to what my eyes were doing: they were trapped within the composition, and that's what every photographer tries to do. Good work.
