My family has been naming inanimate objects for a long time now. Not everything gets a name however. Only certain things. And, they're not letting me in on the secret formula for what gets a name and what doesn't.
At any rate, today's named inanimate is "Millie" the machine. So named because sometimes she's a milling machine. Other times she's a lathe, but that part doesn't figure into the name.
Here, she's the unnamed alter ego...
Shot with a 30D & 85mm 1.8 at f2, 1/80th, iso 400. This is the 30D I sold that the buyer said didn't work and returned . It works fine for me with every lens I've tried so far. Perhaps I'll name it "Boomerang".
