Time For Kris by Corvidae65 Time For Kris by Corvidae65
Hey! It's Kris's birthday today! :iconlostknightkg: :iconwoohooplz: My favorite Time Pirate (:ahoy:) is getting just a little older :lol:

I thought a fitting gift for a Time Pirate would be a shot of the insides of my grandfathers old Waltham wristwatch. It doesn't run anymore so I didn't mind prying the back off it to take a few reverse lens macro shots a couple years ago.

Anyway, I've been watching Kris since back when he was known as KrazyKris and following his work with the zeal of a classic stalker :ninja: His true identity is a mystery, you know as no one has ever seen his face! Some say, he's part ninja and part department store clerk due to his ability to fade into the background at will. I've often thought I caught sight of him a time or two--these would be full frontal, looking-right-in-the-lens face pics--but found on closer inspection they were nothing more interesting than shots of Tony Blair or Graham Norton. :shrug:

ANYWAY, Happy birthday Kris! I hope you're having a GREAT day my friend!

:ahoy: :iconpintplz:

Thank you brother Jonathan :) This was shot with a 50mm 1.8 and a $15 (U.S.) lens reversing ring bought on Ebay if you want to have a go yourself sometime.

On along the same subject, aren't Waltham watches made in England? (yes, yes, I know you are Welsh but you do spend a lot of time in London :D)

I believe that Waltham watches are made in Switzerland or it maybe just a Swiss movement and they are made in England...I'm not sure :confused:
