In the visitor center at Tilden Regional Park (Berkeley) is a display on the history of the Bay Area, which includes an old brass telescope set up so that when you look in it, you see a representation of what the early Spanish explorers might have seen.

This shot includes technology of two eras, a perspective on how one group viewed another's technology, and evokes memories of their (mostly) tragic confluence.

My dad wrote these notes. I had the idea for and took the picture.

The "telescope" effect is nice, but ...stop....Did you do the drawing? If so, I will gladly raise your score. Otherwise, it's a 4. Swash

Nice attempt ot this. Is this a collector plate? Like how you completed the circular focal point. A little dark, but great pic. PTL

Shooting the work of others will not score high on this site. I speak from experience. -2-

I'm not really sure how to critique this... you have photographed someone else's art, but you have added your own twist... I would have rather seen a subject that you created... - setzler
