image captionCraig Eastman: "I thought I'd submit this shot from the Great Orme, Llandudno, for the theme of mechanics. Obviously the cable car is a classic piece of mechanical engineering, but it was also shot on an old, mechanical Pentacon Six TL camera. To get the tilt/shift effect I overcame the mechanics of the camera by removing the lens from the body and holding it by hand."
