I'd seen 2001: A Space Odyssey only two years before, but staring into the eyeball of a sentient computer really wasn't on my mind when I took this shot in our living room; I was just fooling around with my newly-acquired Spiratone fisheye supplementary lens and some Tri-X film. Interesting optical phenomenon: the shape curving around the lower right is actually the edge of a small, perfectly round tabletop. In the background, Father's leather chair, minus Father, with piles of newspapers to each side. That little painting on the wall is now on my wall, and I now have an exact duplicate of the kidney-shaped tier table, thanks to my sister's antique foraging. My stereo system is in evidence by the speaker in the far corner, and my still-pitifully small record collection is on the rack behind Father's chair. I'm 23, still living at home, though employed and contributing to my upkeep. | Click image for Comments. | Home
