    Gads, Perry's Handbook, I haven't thought about one of those since my last year in school.

    I see this image every time I return from the local Wal Mart, or the dump/recycling center. Thought it made an interesting shot. I don't think the 109m antenna are still active as the listed owner is a street address (no city or state), and maintenance is minimal, but they have been a part of the landscape for at least 70 years.

    The one at home is old enough to have been hand written by a monk in a cavern somewhere in Europe. I wonder if SWMBO would be amused if I brought her an updated copy for her birthday?

    Well it does appear to be two editions out of date. I do believe that they have added a decimal place to the boiling point of ammonia since then. Of course being a specialized text it is not cheap.

    The eighth edition is $120 on Amazon. You pay over $30 for a novel here and they are not even tax deductible..

    I really like the laptop shot DPR very nicely caught. My daughter did some similar images for a school project when she was trying to recreate a Joseph Wright type image within a modern setting.

    They've only added 2 editions in 25 years, wow.

    I'm going to re-shoot it tomorrow but use a brolly cam top right to brighten my face up a little and set the book back a bit so the photo's a bit more about me and less the book. I'm also trying to think of another couple simple personal things that match my background (eg a heat exchanger) and then use it for my linked in pic.

    Does the book have a Dust cover on it? If it does taking the cover off might remove some of the emphasis on the title.
    I'm also not sure about the camera on it's side. I think it would look better on it's base because that is what the eye expects and would therefore de emphasise it a bit.

    Sorry to disagree about the camera position. To me on its side looks more as if its just been put down having it on its base would to me at least look more posed and constructed. It was the candid nature of the original picture I liked. I use the image my daughter got of me in the same style as my avatar on another forum.

    I have never actually seen a camera on its side like that that is why to me it looks staged that way. Do you put your camera down like that?
    It's DPRs pic so he can do whatever he wants anyway.
