    Thatīs quite a romantic picture with the dark sky and the atmosphere of solitude it sugests to me. Again, in my low resolution PC it resembles a painting.

    Helping out the son and his team partners with their electronics class project. They chose to construct an RC car, in this case they were required to design and fabricate the their own circuitry and control signal device.
    As for the actual car, that's where I came, I couldn't imagine a better application for a rice strainer. They christened it: "Beyond Thunderdome".

    A few views of the car minus the circuitry, batteries (from my developing "Workbench Composition" series gallery):

    Had to look up rc car - radio-controlled! I have a lot of admiration for folks who can build such things.

    That's a nice car, Gilliatt Gurgle! I like the triangular shape of the base which is matched by the rice strainer's shape. I remember reading about some students who used tiny Raspberry Pi computers to make things like that.

    I donīt understand anything about cars. This one has certainly an original form.Is this upper part made out of a tea sieve?

    The guys opted to steer the car by alternating the acceleration/ deceleration of each wheel, so I suggested they use a swiveling tail wheel approach which led naturally to a triangular shape. A trilobite was the secondary inspiration for the shape.

    Yes, it certainly went off on a bizarre tangent, see above.
    tea sieve?, well, I suppose if your brewing in a 5 gallon bucket. The strainer used is about 10 inch / 26 cm diameter and about 12 in/ 30 cm tall.

    I agree with Danik, it does have a lot of atmosphere. I can understand why Tony likes them as subjects. The blue paintwork that is wearing off gives it added ghost-like qualities.

    I agree with Danik. Gives the photo ghost-like qualities.

    It almost looks as if the people living in this house should put a picture on the wall to break the straight lines. What is outside the window does look like a picture, but it is not clear enough to override the linear patterns.

    The vertical iron bars in front of the window gives this a prison-look

    Again a pattern. This time the dominant pattern are the vertical bars of the staircase.

    It looks small on the picture. Anyway a gigantic tea sieve then.
