    Great shot and yes I do remember the Time Tunner — I always liked it.

    [] Thanks, Peter! I agree, too. As far as "science fiction" shows went it was very good.

    [] Yes, I guess you would have been, Richard :-) . Of course, this is not exactly like the original in the TV series, but when I created it, that old show popped into my mind.
    [] Thanks, Michelle!
    [] Thanks, Tom!

    nice abstract

    Lance I couldnt make that link work. But I watched one of the originals on today.
    And I had forgotton all about what the introduction was like and my memory was so far off especially on colors. Anyway its nice work you done there.

    [] Glad you found an episode to remind you of what it was all about. Thanks for adding it as a favorite, too.

  22. J Devaun says:

    I knew about Irwin Allen’s other shows like "Lost in Space" and "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," but Time Tunnel was a new discovery for me. And this shot, however you did it, is a perfect match!

  23. zephyrus31 says:

    Just lovely.

  24. Degilbo on flickr says:

    [] Thanks, JL! It was a fairly simple exercise. I just photographed a jumbled pile of various coloured rubber bands on a black background. I then treated that image in ACDSee PRO3 using the "Special Effects" in its editing tools. When it "came out", I was instantly reminded of The Time Tunnel – I don’t know why, as I hadn’t thought of that particular show in, probably forty years :-) .
    [] Thanks, May!

  27. james.phillips says:

    Very creative – wasn’t sure how you achieved this effect until I read earlier comments…. Like the colours and sense of movement in this a lot! Nicely done!
