photomacView from the silo in Stockholm

I was treated to a guided tour of the silo in Stockholm’s free harbor today by my friend Marcel. Here he is standing on top of the silos, looking out over the beautiful skyline of this gorgeous city. I managed to creep up to the railing inside and take the shot looking down into the abyss, and then he showed me the control room. Looks like a model railroad layout! Thanks Mac! (you ended up there twice 🙂

Summer moon

I took this picture last night at 22.30 local time out the dining room window, using my 80 mm refractor and handheld iPhone… no kidding, I just held the phone up to the eyepiece and took the picture. Ok, so then I put the whammy on the image with Snapseed, a free iPhone app that is a collection of filters originally made for Photoshop called Nik filters. Yes, one can take great realistic photos, too, but I like the totally different look of grunge I can get like this. I tried to get Saturn in the picture too, it was very close… but not close enough!

Techno Stuff from a Techno Fart…

It’s difficult trying to name the stuff that goes on in my head. I tend to wander through subjects… well, “wander” is perhaps not the best way to describe what I do. Storming around at an uncontrollable pace seems to fit a little better. Hope you get the point. I’m not crazy, just in a hurry to get everything done in this lifetime. Not sure I’ll make it, either.

My son calls me an Evil Engineer, as opposed to an Evil Mad Scientist. He says I lack a plan for my creations. He’s very observant. My plan, albeit not an evil one is just like I said, to get everything in quickly.

I hope you like crazy stuff. Machines. Lasers. Robots. Lights. Chickens.
