Re: Digital Photography
I just blundered onto something that, although you may have already thought of it, impressed me as a useful tip to share.
We broke a steering
cable and my wife, much smaller than I, was able to see under the pedestal
where the sheaves turned the cables
. However, try as I might, I couldn't squeeze my 6'-5" body into the lazarette in a way so that I could see what she was seeing. I tried the old mirror and flashlight trick with feeble success. Suddenly it dawned, what about the camera
with a flash? In no time at all, I was able to stick the camera
back by the quadrant and shoot forward to the sheaves. 5 minutes later, I was looking at large, clearly focused, well-lit photos on a large computer screen
And if I needed tech support from Edson
, I already had the pix. You may already be doing this, but if the idea proves useful for just one person, the typing time was worth it. I'm already imagining new uses... finding that pesky drip from the back of the watermaker
.... finding out what the bottom of the engine
pan looks like.....
