What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well…

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I happened upon Owens river by accident. We were returning from Bishop, CA, after a road trip, and I suddenly noticed a vast Lake to the left side of the road in my GPS. I was a bit shocked to see such a vast lake and was wondering how I missed it so far. I told my wife to make a mark of it, and as we approached a high cliff, we looked over and couldn’t find anything resembling a lake or any other body of water. All we could see was the flat high desert typical of the area. Now I was confused and was determined to uncover the mystery.

Once I reached home, I got in front of the computer and once again looked it over. On the map, there seems to be a vast lake way bigger than Mono Lake with its namesake river as well, Owens Lake and River. I was even more confused as we were in winter, which is rainy season in California, and it didn’t make sense that the lake was dry at this time of the year. Then I switched over to satellite view, and the Lake disappeared right in front of my eyes. It was ll desert no lake. Intrigued, I decided to read on and learned about how the LA county re-routed the water that was going to Mono and Owens lake to quench the ever-increasing water need of the burgeoning Los Angeles Metropolitan area. It was quite shocking to see the old pics of the lake and learn about the shady water practices that led to the demise of the Lake. Nature did have the last laugh, though. The dust picked up from the dry lake bed is quite a significant contributing factor in the ever-present smog that you experience in Los Angeles. So there you have the history of Owen’s Lake. On our next visit, we made it a point to check out Owen’s River and use it as foreground interest in the morning Sierra shots. The river didn’t disappoint. The setting moon was an unexpected bonus.

Too Many Balls In The Air

I decided to try and create an image that would represent the last three years since I’ve been away from Flickr. My first thought was that a self-portrait of me with my hair on fire would likely be the most appropriate but I figured there was probably a less extreme way to picture it.

If I think about that period of time it really was like having too many balls in the air and trying to juggle them all without dropping any of them. Needless to say, a number of those balls hit the floor and they’re probably collecting dust under the couch or bed by now.

For most of that time I was the sole care-giver for my aging mother. I was happy to do it and as so many health care workers liked to remind me, she looked after me for years so now it was my turn. However, what no one really can make clear to you until you’re in the thick of it, is that sometimes an aging parent becomes remarkably childlike—even when she has all mental faculties, as my mother did.

To give you an example it often went something like this:
“Holly, my computer is broken.”
“What happened Mum?”
“I don’t know. It doesn’t work.”
“Did you turn on the monitor?”
“I don’t have a monitor.”
"Mum, the monitor is the computer screen."

Oh dear.

Or the day I took Mum and her partner, Harry, to Walmart. I loaded both their walkers into the back of the car, then loaded them into their respective seats and we were off for an hour of retail excitement. We had been in the store less than five minutes when I looked behind me and Harry was gone.

“Stay here Mum, I’m going to see if Harry is in the next aisle.”
I looked for Harry and couldn’t find him and so went back to the aisle where I’d left Mum thinking he would be with her. Neither of them were there.

And so I began dashing through the aisles trying to locate the elders who suddenly seemed able to move faster than usual. (My hair was really on fire at that point.) After this dashing about continued for ten very long minutes I finally had had it.

Now what I need to tell you is that I am a person who abhors making a scene in public but at that point I was so alarmed and frustrated I stood my ground and yelled my mother’s name at the top of my lungs.

Right there in Walmart. Like a person brought up with no manners.

Both Mum and Harry suddenly came shuffling into the front aisle pushing their walkers and my mother asked somewhat indignantly, “Where were you? We couldn’t find you!!”

In my frustration I said to them, ‘You two are just like toddlers. I can’t take my eye off you for a second.” I immediately regretted speaking to them like that but my mother just grinned, thought it was very funny and agreed with me.

Oh dear.
Oh dearie dear.
My hair needed a fire hose.

AMD Athlon64 3200+ (98% Quality JPG)

This is the same Athlon64 3200+ as I imaged here flic.kr/p/2iL1mhf, but now I have improved my lighting setup in order to remove the dark banding. Unfortunately this has caused some of the damage to the chip to be more pronounced, a lot of what appears to be dust or dirt is actually small craters.

The colours in this shot are completely different from the other one and more of the fainter circuitry is better exposed.

The AMD Logo as well as some other markings are inscribed in the bottom left corner.

This is a composite of 150 images taken by a pixel 2XL from a microscope at 40X. The images had 65% overlap and were stitched together in Microsoft Image Composite Editor using the structured panorama mode.

Intel i5 2500 - ring light (98% quality JPG)

This is the same i5 2500 I took pictures of previously, but I have improved my techniques since then. This is the first time I am using a "ring light" that attaches itself to the microscope objective. This light does not have PWM and so it does not cause any dark banding on the edges.

I also put much more effort into cleaning any dirt off of it this time, which is a lot harder than you might think. I cannot touch the die because at this magnification the microscopic drops of oil and flakes from my skin would be present, and any cleaning cloth I use must not leave any debris behind (bottom left corner for instance). So cleaning this involved me wearing gloves and using a touchscreen cleaning solution called WHOOSH which also happens to do a very good job at removing fingerprints and repelling dust! The solution was removed and rubbed in with a paper towel gently. I then used a toothpick to remove any visible pieces of debris (The particle in the bottom left showed up mid shot, I cannot move the die when at this stage so I had to let it go.)

This is a composite of 168 images taken by a pixel 2XL from a microscope at 40X. The images had 65% overlap and were stitched together in Microsoft Image Composite Editor using the structured panorama mode.
