Globe Project (4 of 7): I've Got the Whole World in My Hand (Explore)

    Newer Older

    Used my 1-watt LED light on this one, as well. The light's in the same hand, I'm shooting with the other. Striking!

    Actually, the pose I had to hold to get this shot was probably striking, as well! I didn't want the spotlights and street lamps around my house to show up in the shot, so I am actually holding the globe about a foot or so above my head, and trying to get a good angle, a good composition, a good highlight and to not drop either the glass globe or the LED flashlight were challenging.

    I'm sure if anybody saw me, I would've looked quite silly.

    But the shot speaks for itself. It's worth it!


    I was working on a design for a financial report for my church. Traditionally, this report features a world-missions theme in the design. So, while standing in our worship pastor's office, I spied this little crystal globe on her desk. So, I stole it. (With her permission, of course!) You'll probably see a few more treatments of this - hope you don't get bored!

      I just received UNESCO-IOC's Annual Report in the mail.

      Why, you ask, did I get UNESCO's Annual Report?

      Because they used this photo in it.

      Way. Cool.

      Thanks, Federico, for the heads up! I've notified Yahoo! of the copyright violation. Looks like that user has done this with other photos as well.

      How'd you catch that?

      BTW: You've got some great work in your photostream. Good stuff!
