It’s in the air we breath you know…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s slow motion image is the one of a waiter tripping slightly and a bowl of hot tomato soup landing in the Lord Mayor’s lap.

You may recall dear reader that last December I showed you a photograph of chubby grinning Mr Michelin; it also featured the word ‘alignment’. It was taken on a walk into the town centre using a slightly longer route than my usual one; it passes through a more industrial part of this fair city. (Alignment)
Well a few days ago I travelled the same path, and, Oh look, they have changed the sign on that building, instead of ‘alignment’ it now says ‘nitrogen’. (I think people like to have their car tires inflated with it… for some reason…)
Well, I couldn’t resist – I thought that I’d better take another photograph – click!…
By volume our air is composed of: 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 1% argon, about 1% water vapour, a whiff of carbon dioxide, and a few other odd molecules not worth mentioning today. So, dear reader, my reason for including such a large area of sky in this composition is that all that lovely blueness and fluffy whiteness that we are seeing, is mainly nitrogen, and the white stuff is just a bit of airborne water floating around in it. I do like an element of logic in my pictures!
See, look, Monsieur Meesh-lan approves – oh, he does love his nitrogen!…

    Oh Mr. Whatt – this so makes me smile! The collage like appearance, the juxtaposition of the natural lightness of the water molecules floating in the sky against the cartoon(ish) appearance of just a corner of that building…well, it thrusts a great distinction between the natural world and man’s creations. Love it.
