Watch

Post by MacroLuv »

Macro taken under ordinary desk lamp. :D

"In crossing a heath, suppose I pitched my foot against a stone, and were asked how the stone came to be there; I might possibly answer, that, for anything I knew to the contrary, it had lain there for ever: nor would it perhaps be very easy to show the absurdity of this answer. But suppose I had found a watch upon the ground, and it should be inquired how the watch happened to be in that place; I should hardly think of the answer which I had before given, that for anything I knew, the watch might have always been there.
... that the watch must have had a maker: that there must have existed, at some time, and at some place or other, an artificer or artificers, who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer, who comprehended its construction, and designed its use.
... every indication of contrivance, every manifestation of design, which existed in the watch, exists in the works of nature; with the difference, on the side of nature, of being greater or more, and that in a degree which exceeds all computation."


Citing William Paley's Natural Theology from The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins.

"THE DAY TIME STOOD STILL" Good job Nikola...I think it is just a little too hot from the glare of the lamp IMO. :wink:

I'd be inclined to use a bounce flash for this shot, directly off the ceiling. Still a good pic though.

Thanks folks! :D
I've hoped someone will notice a red line over watch's border (left-down). 8) It's from camera's AF lamp.
