52@52 Week 40

May the Fourth be with you.

Cardboard cutout of Darth Vader in the secondary lobby at Razorfish, New York City

I work with a bunch of geeks. We have a mannequin dressed up as a storm trooper in the office, but for this pun-filled day, they brought in a bunch of cardboard cutouts.

I have been very busy with work lately. My new project is run out of the west coast, and has daily status meetings at lunch time, so I don’t have an opportunity to get out and about at lunch like I used to. So I brought the Travelwide to work yesterday, and when I saw the tableaus go up, I figured I would shoot it, especially since I hadn’t shot anything else this week.

I keep a tripod in the office, which came in handy for this. I shot this on Tri-X TXP 320, f/22 at 1 second. I didn’t have a cable release, so I couldn't go any longer than that, since the only shutter speed longer than 1 second on my shutter is bulb.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
