A Piece of Art


Can you tell what this is?


It is a CPU cooler (a Thermaltake V1) - a fan that can be built into a computer.
The Geek had bought this for the PC and when he took it out of the package I thought how beautiful it looks. So I brought it out on the deck to take some pictures. The warm light of the setting sun was an extra bonus.



This is what the fan looks like:


Isn't it beautiful?
And this beauty will disappear into the depth of a computer...

a shame that such a pretty thing is hidden. Hope you are feeling better & soon able to enjoy the summer with the Geek & your daughter.

Wait. I don't get it. I wish I could get the scale of it. Are these macro shots, Carola? I'm trying to picture this inside a computer. A laptop, too? A fan is so important for our fast processors. But they can get clogged up by dust if we don't watch out.

After I had my laptop maintenaced after it's first year, the technician told me I could put the vacuum hose up to the vents to suck out extra dust that gets in. I do that once a week and hope that will extend the use of my fan. But YOUR shindig here takes the cake!

It is beautiful in more ways than one and you have captured that visually with these images.

I love the last one with the green muted background.

First I thought some sort of altered typewriter, then I wondered inside of a musical instrument...never thought computer part! Amazing and wonderful photos per usual!

Read "the Pact" and really enjoyed it!

Wow, this is a fabulous series of photos!! I love the warm rich colors, and the abstract beauty of it. I would have never guessed what this is. It almost looks like a plant in some ways, or something you'd find from the ocean depths. Very cool, Carola!!

Megagenial- darauf wäre ich nie gekommen, sieht klasse aus.
By the way: Die Wettervorhersage stimmte, gestern und heute war tollstes Sommerwetter um die 30° C, das ist ja genau mein Ding. Der einzige Wehmutstropfen.... keine Zeit zum Stempeln, da ich lieber draußen bin.
