Some images from (not of) Scotland

Post by BestofTimes » Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:43 pm

I agonised too long over what subject line to give this. 'My images' seeming far too narcissistic.

Here’s a link to some images I created today I created them for my own use and interest but hope they’re of use to others too. There are six:

Anti-matter: Tracks through a bubble chamber
Apollo: A drawing of the Apollo Command and Service Module
Babbage: a drawing of part of Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine
Fisher: That iconic photograph of Astronaut Anna Fisher
Inertial Frames: A diagram showing various mapping coordinate system used on earth
Slide rules: A photo I took of some of my slide rules

https://dm42-offimg-library.s3.amazonaw ... OFFIMG.ZIP

I think the astronaut photo and the slide rules work well, the Apollo and Babbage drawing are ok, I’m less happy with the bubble chamber and the inertial frames.

I’m intending to do more and will post them here when I do.

Cheers,

Steve Hodgson

Last of the updates for this week I think. I've got rid of the two I didn't think worked well (the bubble chamber and inertial frames) and added a few more. Finally a 'Scottish' image too!

Ooh, the Palomino Blackwing 602. "Half the pressure, twice the speed". Very well used I see :)
Beeside my RPN passion, I like good quality pencils. Favourites are Blackwings (Pearl, to be specific) and Mitsu-Bishi pencils.

I've added the bridge and a plywood pod I photographed in Malta some years ago.
