One of the presents I got for my birthday last week was a Manfrotto monopod, and this shot started out more as an experiment to see how useful it would be at slow shutter speeds than a serious attempt to take something to put up here (and on the whole I think that it did make a difference to this shot, though it could probably have done with being a little sharper). But when I reviewed this one I decided that I quite liked the combination of colour, detail and blurred reflection so decided to put it up.

I'm still in Bristol but am travelling over to London later today. If I can get to an internet café tomorrow morning I'll post tomorrow's shot, but if not I'll put it up in the evening when I get home.

I love it! So sharp and still diffuse. And the light brown color in the screws are very nice. Good job!

I read what you said.. really I did, but I still don't know what it is. Whatever it is it sure is pretty in this picture. Nice work.

You're nearly right Emerald - its the light switch in our eldest daughters bedroom. Sadly the switch in our lounge isn't nearly as cool!
