Excellent. Captured the arc and a very nice shadowing. That looks like a deliciously healthy egg. Nice texture.

My autobiographical short story 'Adventure' was first published in 1990. For many years, it lived on my web site. Now that I've shut down my old static HTML web site and redirected www.mheller.com to my photography site, I have republished 'Adventure' at Medium.

If the name of the story reminds you of a text-based game you used to play, read on.


Damn! I must be getting tired. Thank goodness for word-processing software. Delete. Start again.

My entry for "Architecture" in Hunt 18. The corner entrance to the Oyster Bar is where I staged my "Being Vivian Maier" self-portrait.
