Light steering

Pirate ships are awesome. Fact.

If I was rich I would have the wheel from a pirate ship on my wall to best display the fine craftmanship of such an awesome piece.

Okay, that’s a lie.

I would definitely attach it to the bath in some way so that I could sit in the tub and pretend I was sailing.

You’re possibly a little confused at this stage. You may have looked back at the image I have posted today and questioned whether or not it is indeed the wheel from a pirate ship. You would be right to question this; you would also be right in what was likely your first assumption that this is in fact a light fitting.

I took this image in Komsomolskaya metro station in Moscow. It was really busy with people running around everywhere, and so I simply took a shot looking upwards. Until people learn to fly we can be thankful for the fact this angle often gives us the opportunity to shoot unhindered.
