The Abacus of Fire!

This is an abacus.  It used to help people count before machines did it for them.  Then all the people disappeared, because they couldn't offer anything useful that the machines hadn't already created.

P.S.  I slipped in a post (late as usual) for last thursday, but I fear it has gone unnoticed.  This is your notice.

Nikon d300 Quantaray 70-300 f4-5.6
220mm | f40 | 1.6 sec | ISO 800 
Single light source from the top left corner of the picture

Nikon d300 Quantaray 70-300 f4-5.6

Same light, would be from bottom right corner here


  1. I for one noticed that you missed last Thursday...but I did go back and see that you had posted...better late than never...
    did these Abacus replace the fingers in counting???
    good clear photos...

  2. The first one is really good. The shadows are perfect. What did you use for a light source?
