Office of Scientific Intelligence

    Newer Older

    In the television series The Six Million Dollar Man Oscar Goldman was hero Steve Austin's superior in the Office of Scientific Intelligence.

    While shopping with my grandparents at a toy store in Amarillo, Texas in the late 1970s I found this office set on a clearance shelf. It includes walls, floor, desk, and chair.

    This photo was post-processed in Photoshop to give it a 70s look, a style I'm familiar with but struggle to reflect visually.

    Submitted to the Flickr group 7 Days of Shooting.

      I sooo thought it was real at first (in the thumbnail). :p

      WillyCoolPics: I'd love to get a shot of a real person wearing a jacket like that one! ;-)

      It's THE plaid jacket.
      Oscar....what a figure.
      Nice JD.
      Real nice.

      I really like that you chose to shoot from the back rather than front of the figure. (I am also proud to say that somehow I recognized the figure, too, though I have no idea how.) I bet you would find someone wearing that jacket in Atlantic City or Vegas. Technically, I like the 70s look and the depth of field.

      Hoping there is much more "Hancock Bionic" on the way!

      Knew it was Oscar, immediately!

      Yes, the plaid jacket...great evocation of the '70's, JD! : D

      8 Skeins of Danger: Thank you!

      Ryan Wolf: I know the feeling! ;-)

      Gobble Monster: Thanks! I wanted the emphasis to be on the office, but I didn't want a photo of just the furniture, so seating him facing away from us seemed like a good compromise.

      kevindooley: Thank you!

      Shelly: Thanks!

      8 Skeins of Danger: There's more to come for sure. I just have to muster up some more inspiration. ;-)

      Devpow: Thanks! I'm still trying to get a handle on the "70s look." ;-)
