Two slightly different shots of the same agricultural center-pivot irrigation system.  One usead a fast shutter speed, so the water is more droplets.  The other used a show shutter speed, so the water is more like streams.  Which do you like?

Rare close-up photos of the ships used in the original Star Wars Trilogy.
This precious collection of rare close-ups of the ships used in the original Star Wars Trilogy gives us a glimpse into the great effort and detail that went into assembling them and shooting them.

For 25 years, Nancie Atwell has run a small, independent K-8 school in Maine, where the goal is not just teaching young students, but also teachers.

Wow!! Impressive.  I saw a video once of a team of harvesters harvesting the grain.  That was impressive also.  Many people have no idea how much real work happens in "Fly-Over" country.
