Well this is nice.

google+ lets me upload .gif files. My aw-sum computer skills come through again...

This is our cat Scrabble. I built a little platform for him using the glass from a broken scanner. I used a great front surface mirror from an old overhead projector to reflect his image to my camera.

Four lights and burst mode on my D7000. And I caught him with a crunchy balance don his tongue three times.

It looked funny when I paged through in Lightroom so I made a .gif out of it.,

Cheers.

Phailed Photo.

A line of Christmas bulbs filled with jello get hit. I set the delay too high so the amount of break-y chaos was too much.

My next try was perfect and I put it up on Flickr.

Cheers.

Not only is this a boring shot it was a real mess. I though that the plastic heart was filled with water and beads. It was mineral oil and beads.

Yucky.

Cheers.

Another cross-polarized view of a piece of plastic from an LCD being hit by a fast steel bearing.

Again a Phailed Photo.

I am currently trying to clean out my massive oversupply of targets. A bag of five gluesticks made for four failed pictures.

Here is one of them.

Cheers.

The local dollar store had some chocolate oranges. I only bought one which was dumb. I rarely get any shot right the first time.

This shot didn't have enough delay. I went back to the store but the oranges were gone.

Two days ago I got some white chocolate oranges and got the delay right but white chocolate does not look as good as dark...

Cheers.

At a garage sale e few weeks ago I saw some kits for assembling several types of wooden insect models. I picked up a few.

This shows one being hit by my marble cannon. Not very interesting so I didn't assemble the other two.

They will go to the thrift store.

Cheers.

A piece of non-metallic honey comb being sliced by a fast steel bearing.

From the Phailed Photo series.

From time to time I try shooting transparent things under cross polarized screen. The colors show the stresses in the usually transparent objects.

This was a piece of plastic from a bad LCD screen. Pretty colors but nothing really new.

Cheers,

Another Phailed Photo.

I was curious if the very fast ball bearing would make interesting patterns as it passed through smoke trails.

Five incense sticks provided the smoke and the answer.

Boring.

Cheers.

Introduction
...so people will know they have found the right Alan?

My description could lead them to the wrong Alan!

Oh well....I work as an engineer making things. At home I work making things.

I am lucky to have a job so close to what I do at home.

Many people know of my work in high speed photography. It's a great sort of fame as I get lots of great people looking at my pictures, bu tI don't have to sign autographs or promote myself.

So thanks Mrs. Internet.
