I almost forgot I am King for a year! Yeah, found this little ceramic figure in my Three Kings Cake back in Christmas. Everybody, bow… ;-)

This morning I had set my mind to use this toy car in today’s post. It all just clicked when the last rays of sun hit my window in a very shallow angle while crossing the buildings accross down the street. There it was, the highway to the sun.

Old good rum should never last, like a good wine it will eventually go bad if you don’t make good use of it.

Today I had a blast taking this photo. Used my new Lensbaby with a macro adapter, a flash unit,  foam core, a black  kitchen towel, an (almost) empty sauce jar, an oil dispenser (filled with water), a small cardboard box and bubbles, of course:

It looks like one of those lab experiments from college, doesn’t it? Lights comes out the flash unit, hits the foam core, which is angled downwards, and reflects toward the bubbles, that’s how the bubbles are lighted. To (unlight) block the light from hitting the black table near the bubbles, the black kitchen towel is somehow positioned on top of the cardboard box, which sits between the flash unit and the bubbles. Let follow the light path:
