Ok, there is something fun I was messing around with. Can you guess what this is a picture of? I'll give you one hint. This was taken on my recent trip to Washington, DC. Any guesses? I'll post the answer tomorrow.Thanks for stopping by.

A "flight sickness" bag?
We have a winner! You have won my admiration, though you already had it. Thanks Eric.
Sorry I missed this! This is a great photo, something along the lines of what I wish I had the eye for. My guess was going to be the Washington Monument, but I would have been totally wrong.Any chance you'll share how you shot it?
For me this is just an example of playing around with what was at hand. I was bored on the flight. I usually shoot images out the windows but these were in the worst shape I had seen, couldn't hardly see out them. So I was playing around with the stuff in the seat pocket and picked up the "barf bag". I wondered what I could do with it. I noticed that it was translucent so I stuck the camera (a point and shoot) and made sure the flash was off. I took a few pictures. Seemed to me like the shutter was too slow, so I decided to hold the bag up to the window to get more light. That helped with the camera shake. Then I played around with opening the bag more and adjusting the fold end. When I went through the pictures, I decided I like this one the most since it seemed very abstract. I like the swoop of the top seam coming down to the elongated diamond shape and then the 2 side shadows coming in.In the end, it was just a brain exercise that worked out in an interesting way. Many of the other exercises did not work out at all.Thanks for stopping by John.
While I am quite late to the party, I wanted to add my two cents worth. Not only do I like the photo, I appreciate knowing that there are others who "do crazy stuff" with their cameras primarily, when they are trapped in a boring situation.
You must have had strange looks from fellow passengers!
Thanks John and Anita. Luckily I was sitting by myself in the row. Also, I was using a point and shoot camera. I try not to worry too much about what people think as long as I am clearly not acting like a loon or a potential terrorist.
It's a really interesting photo, it looks like some kind of postmodern hallway or something. Neat perspective.The "on the flight" bit gave it away, I'm afraid; there just aren't that many things you can get into on an airplane these days. ;)
