eNd oF An eRa(???) (!!!)

Possibly the last roll of 35mm film I will ever shoot*:


*Due to the recent acquisition of a second DSLR and a couple of lenses

Oh, and while I'm at it, some comments on the comments from last week:
  1. As to my mention of "Akinogal, et al" --Apparently, there are web crawler-bots (?) that cruise around and post links on blogs. Their posts and links try to lure unwary users into downloading bogus anti-virus software. That's the general idea, anyway. There were two such comments for the last post.
  2. There's nothing wrong with the picture. For some reason, the mural is painted as a mirror image. And the hitchin' post is a neat example of trompe l'oeil .

How excellent! I have, as you may recall, a certain weakness and fondness for new words, and "trompe l'oeil" is a new expression to me! I went to trusty Wiki land and read all about it. Tres cool!

As for the mirror image, must just be a reflection in a window of the building that sports the hitching post.

As for "trompe l'oeil" that immediately struck me as such an excellent name for a band or an album cover. Or maybe a song. Things that appear to have more depth than they in fact do. Quite perfect! All kinds of places one could go with that!

By the way, cool pictures!
