[Closed] Photo Theme Challenge, Week #26 - Electric [Deadline: Friday, December 8]
Let's see your photos of an electric world - cities at night, neon lights, criss-crossing power lines, and anything else that feels electric. Maybe I've been on a bit of a Bladerunner kick recently :)
Sorry new to the forum. Can you please explain to me what I need to do to upload a photo. Seems no attachment are allowed.?
Hi Spencer, team,
I would like to submit photo for the challenge, but getting "No more attachments are allowed today" message. Would you be able to advise what can be wrong?
Not sure if i fits the brief, but these 'feel' electric to me ;-)
Whatever you see in this (could be a robot laughing maybe?), it's simply morphing an image of light streaks using GIMP. I created this image years ago, so I can't really recall the steps I took in GIMP to get from the original photo to this. The original image was a long(er) exposure of tail lights and such.
Bored on the passenger seat in the middle of the night on a highway in France ;) I (tried to) focus on a blue and white motorway sign and tried to "follow" that sign while we drove past it. Can't really remember the orange/red lights; it wasn't traffic, I guess it was because of road works :)
@ronaldsmeets very engaging photo, thank you for sharing
This is a placeholder reply, trying to reach the magic number of 2 so that I can upload an image. I'm a long time reader of PL and Nasim's blog before that (blanking on the name). Spencer, please open the gate, I have a perfect image for this category.

This is a macro photo of a portion of a 4k bits core memory module I purchased on ebay a while back. (Yes, I'm in IT.) Core memory was strung together by hand - much like one would sew a sweater. By the early 1970s core memory was replaced by transistors and similar technology. I've always considered core memory interesting as you can actually see each memory bit - the circular toroid at the intersection of many of the wires. The 4k bit module is about 6 inches (about 15 cm) square. Oh, shot with a Nikon Z7ii with a 128GB memory module many are familar with - many times smaller and about the same weight. Amazing what 50 years of technological advancement can do.
Visually I like the color of the wires vary as the light refracts. I'm assuming the insulator is responsible for some (maybe all) of the color change.
Regardless, these challenges are fun ...
thanks Spencer hope my reply can be considered as a second post, of course I do understand the pain regarding spam
A bit of urban vibes.
Looking forward to participating in the weekly photo contest. I have followed PL for a long time and appreciate the flow of knowledge.
