Here's a photograph I made of this same La Croix pipe. I think I like the other one better.

Here's the photograph I made of this same oversized Rinaldo Collection, Egea, Titania, FH XL Handmade Hawkbill Barrel. With the FujiFilm X-E1 and the Fujinon 60mm macro lens, I was able to use autofocus and a reasonably small aperture to get up close and a much better clarity and sharpness of the fantastic grain. And I hand held the camera at 1600 ISO. Amazing what this camera can do. Thanks, again, DurnagoPipe for telling me about the X-E1....

No. You think maybe there might be a puppy in this pipe?

Can puppies be burn-outs?

Often I'm joking, Goose. I wasnt joking this time. That looks like trouble. Might be a quirk of the light, I suppose, but I dont think so.

Remember, the puppy of lunacy does not defeat the foo dog of burn out.
