CCLXX: Blast from the Past

© Trypto/Lani Kai
Lani Kai: here is a sample page from the upcoming Colorburn book, to be published when we get off our lazy bums and finish making the pages
Lani Kai: each page is hand-crafted with precision and care to the highest standards
Trypto: lovely, although I believe that jpeg is out of date
Lani Kai: what did you change?
Trypto: the thumbnail was shifted slightly so its edges fall directly on the gridlines
Trypto: and naturally the highlighting has to be adjusted as well

Lani Kai: the blog's one-year anniversary is coming up on August 29
Lani Kai: don't miss out on the festivities!
Wisp: I can't tell if this is delicious or disturbing
Wisp: looks like Play-Doh

CCLXIII: Obscure Camera

© Lani Kai
Trypto: that's a camera?
Lani Kai: it's a twin lens reflex
Trypto: meaning?
Lani Kai: well, the top lens is the viewing lens
Lani Kai: it's sole purpose is to project light on the viewfinder
Lani Kai: the bottom lens is used to take the picture
Trypto: what does the little red x do?
Trypto: is that the self-destruct button?
Lani Kai: that's the flash synchronizer selector
Lani Kai: it needs to be set to X if you're using a modern flash unit
Trypto: or if you're going to use it as a bomb
Trypto: I always knew you were a terrorist

CCLX: Brilliant

© Lani Kai
Trypto: that looks like the house in Peter Pan
Trypto: well, I guess they're both Victorian
Trypto: the picture is a little bright
Lani Kai: it was a bright day
Trypto: that is only tangentially relevant
Trypto: after all, you've posted pictures taken at midnight which looked like it was afternoon

Trypto: these steps are actually visible in the last picture I posted
