From my Desk
The sun is out and I have a lot to do today so I thought I would just make a short post with a picture of the art object on my desk that I took this morning. This art object was made years ago and given to me. It came from Japan. I’m not sure who made it or how it was done. I think it was one of the early methods of using a laser to etch the glass. I’m not sure if you can find this kind of thing now - I haven’t really looked in the stores much or searched for it on the net.
I’ve been trying to get the lighting just right on the art object. It is more difficult than you would think. Sometimes the light reflects very nicely off the corner of the object and scatters into colors. It is fun to see what comes out on the camera. If you play around in the digital darkroom you can make the picture come out differently and show off different aspects of the lighting – I find it fun to try different things, there is a small levels adjustment on this picture that was taken in HDR by the camera.
I’ve been watching the continuing sideways trading of BTC and hoping for a move upward. I finally sold a small amount at pricing lower than my more recent purchase price. Maybe you could think of it as somewhat of a loss but I tend to sell the highs and by back low with this market so I think I probably came out ahead.
I’m spending most of my time looking into decentralized trading and trying to see if there are any good workable solutions at the moment.
I will keep everyone posted if I find something I really like. I just thought I would check-in with a short post.
Thanks for reading! I always value your support and comments. The pictures were taken by me with my Galaxy S9+. Text and graphics copyright 10/4/2018 steemit.com/@lightsplasher & weku/@litesplasher.
