  • Oliver Hammond 9y

    I was thinking it looked a bit like the Forbidden City in China, but it does look like a forest camp, too! Thanks for dropping by!

    Wonderful, hehe it does kinda look like camp in the middle of a golden forest.

    Chips and network cards and all those electronic things always look totally bizarre close up. I love to see macro shots of them!
  • Oliver Hammond 9y

    And I love abusing technology. :-D

    ooooo you have given me an idea :) I have an old mainframe CPU board, I've tried to photograph it before (and failed miserably) but I'm better at macros now :)

    The little chips in the middle do look like little tents :)

    Tony.

    I have tons of old chips and boards going back to the early '80s. I should dig them out of their hiding places and turn my reverse-lens macro rig on them. >:-)
  • Ioan Sameli 9y

    Yeah, you definitively should :)

  • Oliver Hammond 9y

    This is a great shot, would you mind posting it in my group? It's all macros of technology www.flickr.com/groups/40921331@N00/
  • Oliver Hammond 9y

    Sure! That group is right up my alley for a geek like me!

    Does UAE censor flickr? or does yahoo voluntarily censor it for them?
  • Oliver Hammond 9y

    The UAE's only ISP, Etisalat, blocks Flickr on the grounds that it contains nudity. Many UAE residents are able to bypass the block by using proxies, but they are still unable to see the images, only the text. So I always upload a low-res copy to my personal space and link to it so that my friends there can see at least my photos.
  • Jeff E. 9y

    Well, I guess we can't all live in the basition of democracy that is America. Nice shot btw...
