Looking Inside

posted in: Photography, Red Herrings | 1

I’ve always loved seeing the inner workings of things.
Seriously, everything from ship deck plans to microscopic photography to those encyclopedias with the plastic, layered sheets of illustrations.  I’ve been entranced by them all.
Well, I’ve been busy this week and I’m not up to doing a huge, long post about anything, so I’m just going to share two links to revealing illustrations.

First, there’s an older post on Gizmodo of 20 “cutaway” illustrations of everything from a car to a space suit to a modern aircraft carrier.  Seriously, these are super cool.  I could stare at them for hours, if I had the time.
Secondly, there’s a post from a few years back on Extreme Tech showing all the inner workings of a DSLR camera.  As an amateur photographer, I use one of these all the time, but I have to admit, I’m still amazed at all the bits and pieces that make it work.

So, that’s all I’ve got this week, but hopefully it’s enough to keep you amused until your weekend starts!
