    Talking Rock of Ages

    One of the more fascinating things I have photographed was this rock made from something similar to Mica, but not really.

    Is it just me or it this really cool? It is easily damaged when touched, though. Quite literally flaking apart.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Yeah ... what is this? Look ... I do this for fun, okay. There is no money in it. I just hoped to inspire someone ... or two.

    Look, here's another angle ... not quite as effective, but you should get the idea.

    It truly is one of the best lighting subjects I ever had to work with ... LOL

    The shame is that it is so fragile, I'm afraid to touch it.

    Yea, it does look very fragile. Pretty cool star effects.
