A: Do you know?

Referring to M.C. Escher, of course.

This is from a local park where I used to go with my kids when they were younger. The place is not as moody and sinister as it is represented here. I spent quite some time there sitting beside the sandbox, watching my kids learn how to master their scooters and bikes.

    Dear Walter, I shoot with a consumer cam (Sony DSC-H1) and happen to know little about camera optics. The EXIF data say: ExposureTime - 1/125 seconds, FNumber - 4.00, ISOSpeedRatings - 64, ExposureBiasValue - -1.70, MaxApertureValue - F 2.83, FocalLength - 6.00 mm, ColorSpace - sRGB, Contrast - Soft, Saturation - Low. The shot has seen some postproduction in PS and FocusMagic, but not much. I hope this might be of informational value to you.
