Microphone - Karl Winkler
Another hobby of mine is microphones and recording. Saw this light on the wall through a window blind, and thought of putting the old microphone in there. Reminds me of some older styles.

Really good, once again!
Karl, once you show great eye along with perfect control over your camera. Nice diagonal lighting!Matthias Rueger 15-Oct-2001 at 04:30
...is this a "steel-life" or a "still-life." Forgive my poor attempt at irony--I think the choice of negative film was just right. JeromeJerome Belthrop 15-Oct-2001 at 06:07

Once again, Thanks!
Wow, thanks to everyone for the kind words. I was very pleased myself to get these negatives, and of course I've never doubted the Zeiss optics. It is amazing what one can get with 35mm, good lighting, and a good tripod (just recently got a Manfrotto).Karl Winkler 15-Oct-2001 at 13:55
I can almost feel the metal
and the strips of sunlight on the wall really added to the mood. Not my type of shooting but you presented it in such a way that its easy to enjoy. Well done. edEd Ng 15-May-2002 at 07:17
that's what I'm talking
about - more than just rich tones, real, palable, metal tones. And the soft diagonal light and shadows on the wall just sets it off. FantasticGregg Humphrey 25-Mar-2003 at 19:02
