What a novel idea. Good work. I have a laser level out in the garage. You made me think of a whole bunch of ideas using that.

Thanks guys.

I'm happy to get a chance to do something "artsy fartsy" again .

Like a lot of people here (I suspect), I was a more serious photographer back in the days when I shot everything on film. Did my own darkroom work...stil have two enlargers. I was more experimental.

Then I got into digital and the early digital cameras were so programmed and automatic that I regressed to a snapshooter. I'd walk around with that little silver box and click off pictures like a bored tourist.

Now that I've got an SLR again, I'm FINALLY starting to take back some control. Although I admit that the "Fireworks" mode is a program, it does actually shut down some automatic functions. In fact, I think this is actually the fist time I've manually focussed the 50mm lens.
