That’s a good question. It could be some sort of futuristic space transport, or perhaps an automotive prototype from the 1950’s. Whatever it is, it is available on a variety of cool things (posters, mugs, device cases, etc.) when you visit my shops at Redbubble, Pixels and/or Tee Public. Hope to see you soon!
Sold in a suit of gold As a gift for humanity Yet, AI will restrain Future prosperity Through algorithmic eyes Trapped in a house of mirrors Reflections on mankind Dim as need disappears Delusions of grandeur Transposing humans, digital It's not evolution - ours is a hollowed skull

If you like my robot character design, then you can find it on a variety of very cool gifts, prints & apparel items – in these galleries:
Sky Lab, by Electronic System (1974)
NOTE: this poem uses the Preformatted Block, which allows for indentation of text exactly as pasted. However, in so doing, a monospace font is used.
Edge of Technology
Over the edge of technology is an abyss, which, once entered, has the computational power to dismantle human individualism. It is cloaked in convenience, novelty and simplicity, affording grandiose delusions to users not willing to look beyond a simple display screen. Don’t allow yourself to be misguided by illusions not grounded in reality.
This design, however, is real (made without using AI) and is available on a variety of cool products when you visit the following shops…
Located several light-years from Earth, a remote planet housing precious gemstones scattered on a sandy surface also maintains an unusual tower used as a mining outpost. Visitors are advised to use caution and follow all rules, where posted, including a one gemstone per person limit.

This hi-tech city may exist on the motherboard of a computer, in a future time, or perhaps somewhere on another world. And, what is that orange sphere? In consideration of such mysteries, reasonable advice may include visiting my shops at Redbubble, Pixels, ArtPal and Tee Public. Thanks!
Welcome to my first experiment using a mirrorless camera with an inexpensive Canon-FD-Lens-Mount-to-Nikon-Z-Camera-Mount adapter.
I always wanted to try my old lenses, formerly paired with a Canon AE-1, on a new camera. However, with lenses made by different companies, I’d (wrongly) assumed that each would require a unique adapter.
In fact, only the lens mount fitting matters. So, with this series of photographs, I’m using a Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 Macro lens made by Tokina.
I’ve also applied a scaled-back version of my usual post-processing routine to these photographs, shot as RAW files, using Affinity Photo.
Because this is a dumb adapter, both autofocus and changes to aperture are no longer available in-camera and must be made manually.
In order for my camera to retain IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization), information such as lens number, focal length and maximum aperture, had to be assigned in the Set Up Menu as Non-CPU lens data. I also assigned a Function Button to use as a shortcut.
Without autofocus, I’ve found it helpful to use Focus Peaking, which superimposes a selected color to highlight areas in focus. Depending on the primary color present in any given scene, one may assign a contrasting color for improved visibility.
This contemporary digital artwork features a paper-thin fractal design with an aquamarine color, floating in space. It looks equally cool behind glass in a frame on a wall, or on a t-shirt. You can see a wide variety of products available when you visit these shops:
It also makes a great gift-giving idea! I appreciate your visit, thanks.

The future. The past. Take your pick, adjust the dial, lock into position and press the green button labeled “GO”. It’s that easy.

Have a nice trip!
