These are hard drives in a storage unit, I'll leave you to ponder what the orange lights mean...

I'm too technologically unschooled to understand what the contradiction is. Is it perhaps not evident in the photo because it's the inspector's color-blindness that you revealed later?

I had thought how neat it'd be to post a candle burning underwater, but of course I couldn't make it happen. Yours has a similar idea that actually works.

Another one I don't get, as a word (and picture) person who grew up before ones and zeroes ruled the world.

My turn: Weather was overcast and rainy until today, poor light for photo-ing. Then the sun came out and I went to work in the kitchen. Here are the results.

possibly... could just be that the drives should be working, but were clearly not in the same state as each other. Or not clearly, as the case may be... ;-)a
either way, I thought it impressive that so many drives could fail in an array, and no-one notice!

the old line " there are only 10 types of people in this world, those that understand binary, and all the rest" springs to mind.

Oh, very clever, Benitoite!

Especially since there are contradictions on various levels here: 0 vs 1 = zero vs one and also off vs on
And the text saying (I ran it through a binary to text converter  :p ): "Analog and digital are contradictory signal types"

Well played.

I dropped my old 5D with the 50/1.8 mounted on it last week. I picked it up and it was dead. On closer inspection I realised the battery lid had taken the full hit and the metal plate inside of the lid had come loose in one corner so it couldn't be properly closed any more. Amazingly I could still buy a new one in a shop here for less than 10 euro and all is well again. Phew...

I've been playing with contradictory shadows.

Which you just happened to know about, I'm sure. I took it as an ordinary cryptogram. This whole affair reminds me of a recent New Yorker cartoon. Doctor at patient's bedside: "I'm sorry, that kidney went to someone who knows how to code."

OhLook: I love your second image. The concept is great and I love the little touch of red and the composition.

Thank you.

Wow! some excellent examples of contradictions this week.

I wish I had some of your imagination.
