Dunite, and 365 project, kinda

by Joe Zink April. 22, 2018 619 views

In October of 2016, I started a photo365 project, but was unable to finish due to some life issues that were happening at the time. I restarted in January of 2017, but again had to stop after a short time. So, I resolved to post 365 photos in any sequence, regardless of the calendar day, no matter how long it took. And here, 19 months later, my friends, are the final photos of the sequence. 363, 364 and 365 !

This photo is a rock type known as Dunite. Coarse grained, plutonic (crystals formed from magma intrusions under the earth's surface) It's not very inspiring under normal light, but when polarizing filters are applied, it becomes a magic light show of different colors! Below, first picture, the exact same view as the one above, under crossed polarizing filters. Followed by some other views I found quite interesting...

So, the 365 effort kinda reminds me of a joke...

3 blondes walk into a bar, order shots and clink their glasses together before downing their drinks.

"51 weeks! 51 weeks!" they yell, and each orders another shot.

Again, glasses clinking, slamming the shots, "51 weeks! 51 weeks!"

This goes on for a while, and the bartender finally says "You know, ladies, I couldn't help but notice that each time you drink a shot, you yell '51 weeks!' What's that all about?"

And the first blonde says " We bought a jigsaw puzzle , and on the outside of the box it said ' 2 to 4 years', but we got it put together in 51 weeks"...

So, my good friends, I managed to do a 365 project, but it took me 19 months :)

YAY JOE!!!! You did it!!! So proud of you ;)  Now onto the next 365 project give or take a day here or there. BTW I liked your joke as well. In all seriousness the polarizing filter really does create interesting colors it's like mosaic art, very cool!
