The engine control center of the Queen Mary reveals the top technologies of the 1930s. Interestingly besides British and Scottish high tech companies delivered parts I also discovered that Siemens, a German company delivered components to the ship.
We visited the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, CO where I photographed the artwork on this mummy case. This is actually not an ancient mummy case but a case that was created in 1994 using the technique of the ancient Egyptians. I thought the “butterfly” composition in combination with the” warm-cold” color contrast was very interesting.
Enjoy the image and keep on creating great images!
Last month I visited the textile museum in Lodz. There were many looms and textile machines that were of great interest to me since the family of my father used to live in Lodz and surrounding cities for about two hundred years.
I photographed this Indian masterpiece at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park outside Lancaster, CA. If you are nearby, I highly recommend a visit. Unfortunately the park is only open during week-ends.
I photographed this Mauser Calculator in a museum in former East Germany. When you think about the Mauser company you think about army rifles and pistols. Not very many people know that after the end of WWII gun production companies were looking into new products since they were not allowed to produce guns anymore. There was a growing need for calculators so they manufactured them. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all companies in the world stopped producing weapons and creating products that help the human race to advance?
