Very clever idea.

Good memories of this as a kids. :)

Mike Hatton13-Jun-2008 21:16
Great work, you look like a DJ and lol @ ican...maybe the kids will do it via "string subtraction" can2can....?
Tina Todd13-Jun-2008 16:59
That is too funny. We used to do that when we were youngins. I wonder if kids still do that? Nah, they probably used old bag phones or the "brick" phones
Alida Thorpe13-Jun-2008 12:11
I remember trying to get this to work. The secret is "tension" in the line.
Nice shot.
Nancy Lobaugh13-Jun-2008 03:15
