I always wanted to have a photoshot in the beach. Even it’s not summer yet, the weather in Barcelona was sunny enough to do it without catching a cold. The model name is Maika, she’s a beautiful girl from Barcelona with really nice eyes. The good thing about doing this photoshots is about freedom of choice and freedom of ideas. I’m independent, so no pressure from a client asking for a specific product. This was just our free will taking pictures. I like when the model improvises by herself, because that makes her feel better and more relaxed, even if sometimes the wind can play some tricks. Maika is pretty young but she’s talented. I’m sure I’ll work with her in the near future again. She has lovely green eyes and she puts personality in the pictures which make them more vivid and with content.
For the first 2 pictures I used a Nikon D700, lens 200mm.
I think it’s a sunspot, of course the big one is dust on the lens :)
These ones with a Nikon D200 with a 300mm lens.
For both pictures I used a polarized filter and an ND filter. Maximum speed, smallest aperture and minimum ISO.
Before I throw away this wonderful machine, I will try to sell some pieces at Akihabara or give them for free. I just can’t see UltraSparc processors in the trash can. It’s a sacrilege for my moral principles.
A Sun E250 Machine. 2G Ram and 2xUltraSparc processors.
It has a nice front. To reduce that beautiful noise coming from the SCSI disks, it has a sponge in the front cover.
Removing the front cover door
It’s a beautiful interior. We can see the two UltraSparc processors and the memory modules on the right. See the good finishing of the metal. The hardware of this machines is not a crap as IBM xseries ones for example. The E-250 is good quality hardware. This is not related to a machine like this only. Almost all Sun hardware that I worked with until now is strong, good finished and good quality in every detail.
Don’t forget that it has a tiny screw in the back.
Memory modules. 2GB Ram
2xUltra Sparc processors
The two holes are for the power supply fonts. As you can see this machine power supply fonts are really huge. You can put two redundant power supplies.
Mother board removed.
Bender helped me. Without his help this wouldn’t have been possible.
The huge power supply. It’s almost as heavy as the rest of the machine. I will try to sell this or give for free at Akihabara.
The DVD rom
The ventilators. They are really strong and solid plastic. One of the reasons that this machine noise level is less than many modern PCs.
The chassis. Everything have been removed. I could not dismantle the chassis.
Power supplies connectors and power distribution circuit.
All the pieces that an E-250 is made of.

Bender is getting exited with the RAM…
Tired of dismantle the iron, plastic and aluminum monolith…
