Welcome to PHOTOS

Featured

Starting in 2013, we’re using Flickr as our primary image repository and showcase, and we now link to our Flickr uploads. You will find new galleries at AlexanderForbes on Flickr. They are viewable by everybody. We also link to favorite images by friends on Flickr. We no longer support direct “click here” downloading of featured images. We’re no longer adding new content to the old Jalbum photo galleries, but we’ll always retain these legacy archives, linked in the sidebar. We hope you’ll enjoy viewing our new larger image displays right here on the main Photos page.

Crude Fiber Optics Transmission

IMG_1410

A bright blue-green tint caught my eye. This is the edge of a glass table top. The faint vertical bands within the light band are from the stripes of the curtains in the early morning sun. Sunlit curtains are 90 degrees to the left and way outside the iPhone field of view. They’re being transmitted horizontally through the glass. Kind of a crude demonstration of fiber optics transmission using a whole plate of glass instead of a bundle of fibers.

Macricostas Hay Field, by Richard

Macricostas hay field

Richard says, “I’ve been hiking around this field for almost 20 years now (it used to be a corn field) and know it well. In a few places on the perimeter you can shoot it in a way that makes it look much larger than it actually is and this is one of those places.” Click image to see full author credits, image information and comments on Flickr.
