They say we have extremely hard water here. The Culigan Man does brisk business. Those that don't have stoppages from time-to-time. I ought to have this cleared out in a little while. From tonights experiment in the DIY lightbox. Some of the holiday wrapping paper makes for good backrounds. Kind of looks like a Magical Golden Shower. :o

I probably should have explained this better. It is not a shop. It is a pic of an actual item. My sister finds these *conversation starters* and gives them as holiday gifts. I got this a couple of years ago. The *water* is acrylic/plastic molded into the spout of a faucet. I just put it into the lightbox, removed the white backround and threw in some shiny gold holiday wrapping paper for the backround. Other than very minimal nudging of the contrast and saturation and sharpening nothing has been done to the photo.

Glad everyone likes the image. I was kind of pleased and surprised myself. Been trying for a couple of years to image this nicely. Finally built myself this DIY lightbox and got a decent image of the *conversation starter*.

Thanks for the explanation. It certainly is a conversation piece. --Rick
