Cool. That's alright—that's what the ad makers use. ;-)a

That started me on how to get clearer ice cubes. One of the coffee shops we visit has clear ice but not very nice shaped ice cubes. I was talking with the manager about their reverse osmosis system. In their beginning days they used silicone trays and made 1" square cubes. Beautiful ice cubes from that, he offered to give me some of the trays for photo projects. May go back and take him up on that but was nice to not have to worry about melting issues with acrylic. Still have to figure our the water filter situation.

I have a clear ice maker in my home bar. It involves not allowing air to get into the water as it freezes. The water is filtered and continually pumped over a freezing stainless platen, that when the cubes are large enough, the platen heats slightly and an electric knife cuts the ice sheet into 3/4" cubes, that then slide off into the bin. Not very efficient, but makes beautiful ice.

Edit: I also have 1.5 and 2.25" silicone cube trays as well as 2.5" round molds. Great for Bourbons and such, but nowhere near as clear as from the ice maker.

Bonus: Fake cubes don't melt or change size or dilute the color of the liquid and you can place the "condensation" exactly as you want it. And the shape and size are always precisely what you selected them to be. :)

Lol, yes I agree... That's why I have 60 artificial ice cubes. The clear ice I have for consumption only...

Glad it isn't the other way around ;)

These three ladies are the only few native Omaha Indian who can speak fluent the Tribe language.
3 sisters Winona Caramony (oldest member of the tribe at 94), Glenna Stabler, and Octa Keen.

So much character and grace in this picture. The stories they could tell. Lighting and background are A1 in my opinion as well.

TFS, John

Are any of the the ladies in the Black and White the ones that are in the color?

Without myself knowing any of them, I could imagine that they are the same three ladies in both photos.

Very nicely done with dignity to the ladies and the tribe.

Yes they were the same 3 sisters. I didn't take the black and white, but I know the photographer.
