Thematic Photographic 153 - Parallel
Where the fingers hit the road
London, ON, May 2011
I'm somewhat manic about input/output devices, things like keyboards, mice, displays and the various technologies and supporting structures like desks and chairs that keep me comfy while I write. I've been known to buy and return keyboard after keyboard until I get just the right one, with just the right layout and feel. If something feels even slightly off, it can be distracting. Store clerks have learned to hate me.
Until now, that is. Because I've found my all-time favorite keyboard. It's Apple's standard wired keyboard, the one with perfectly placed, perfectly built keys that let my fingers fly, the one that used to come with every Mac until they switched to the small-sized wireless one. I tried that one, but hated it because it didn't have separate keypads for arrows and numbers. It slowed me down. I whined. My wife rolled her eyes. Then I headed to the store.
When I got it home, I noticed it had some lovingly parallel lines built into it. So I reached for my camera...
Your turn: Please share a picture of something parallel-themed on your blog - or find something you may have already posted online long ago - and leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Drop by other participants to share the joy. This is not a competition: Rather, it's designed to stretch our photographic horizons in an enjoyable way. So have fun with it. We'll be doing this all week before launching our next theme next Monday. If you'd like additional background on how Thematic Photographic works, click here.
