If there was a button
Once pushed
That could take you back there
Real fast.

Would you push that button
Down hard?
Or would you fondle it’s top

If you want to visit…
Or move.

For those of you wondering something more, perhaps about the geeky stuff that went into this imaginary image of Florence, I’ve posted its components if you’ll click here .

I wonder about that stuff… here

    btw … went over and looked at your “components” … had to laugh at your “tripod phobia” … meeeee tooooo!!!! Worked on overcoming my fears of the thing this weekend, and now I have an aching back, lol!!!!! Anyhow, once again, love the image to pieces!!!!!

  • Both of your comments are reeeeely nice Lois. Nice of you to enjoy watching a man play with his toys. If I took that truck down onto the rug, people would think I’d regressed into childhood… but a serious piece of creative art… heh heh heh… Why it’s almost as much fun as taking it down on the rug, huh? Thanks Lois, and yeah… I cannot bring myself to carry a tripod. After all, why go out and buy minature cameras and lenses that allow the most candid spontaneous photography, and then screw it all onto a thirty ton tripod? Seems weeeeerd!

    Wow what can i say ted amazing

  • Oh you could say, “the greatest image in history.” Or “Red Bubble has never enjoyed such an insightful exploration of the historic mood.” Or.. or… well you could tell the truth and “amazing” is very very very nice from someone with your mastery of the toolkit Heather… Thanks… :)

    great work Ted, beautifully combined and created.

  • Thanks Alf. Of course if I could have used one of your drop-dead models in her corset and nosebleed heels, well I might not have used my model here :-) Notice that word “might” . But… since this is what I had in my office… There is only one obvious conclusion…. Life is not fair!

    I love it Ted! Just beautiful atmosphere and mood :)))

  • Well, as a photographer who can find both atmosphere and mood in the microscopic world, I’m flattered that you feel I’ve found it in a much easier setting. Thanks.

    Fabolous work it has such a beautiful old time feeling to it

  • See up there on the right wall Hans? Now go look at the left wall on your own “Up Hill”. We both seem to accessorize our historical settings similarly, eh? Thanks Hans.
