This is actually an HDR shot which seemed to really bring out the texture of the rope.

From these come horses out of the ground,
horses complete with proud arched neck
and swishing tail made from hair worms,
eyes carbuncle bright, steam from nostrils,
pelt shimmering with new born dew-
horses stamping impatient feet to be shod
for the Master of the Horse, Caesaar’s right arm
in Rome.

Get on with it Mark Anthony,
expansive big cocked man,
magic Roman man risen like horse
as if out of the ground fully formed,
born with flagon in hand.

Why impotent against the Parthians
magic Roman man and why bear pelt shouldered
did you try to tame large cats to pull you
through the streets of Rome and
why did you let yourself be rendered after death
by the technicians of salt and bitumen-
your flagon full for when you awake
with your queen,
your horse rendered down for food
for slaves-
no more stomping impatient feet.

The observer does affect the Universe but is hardly the center of the Universe.

Been using my Galaxy Tab on occasion to take pictures. The big screen is a bit awkward especially with the cover but the large screen is great for framing shots. I think tablet makers ought to exploit the bigger form and put more serious cameras.
