full moon on march 19, 2011

First time trying to (literally) shoot the moon. I was surprised it turned out as well as it did handheld.

For the record: ISO 100, f4.5, 1/250 @ 200mm (cropped)


Young man goes west

My brother is blogging photos from his trip out west. I’m pretty jealous of the roadtrip.


It’s that time of year…

the library of congress

loc image

In addition to increasingly putting their collections online, the Library of Congress has uploaded a trial set of images onto Flickr. Which I find fascinating, because they are a). historical, b). available for common use, c). full of rare, Pre-WWII color images, and d). numerous in number and broad in scope.

I guess it’s the last one that fascinates and horrifies me the most. If there were so many images a hundred years ago that have completely flown under the public radar, what hope is there of our own having any longevity, in an era where taking pictures is even more common than picking your nose?

On a purely personal note, for those that are wondering, yes, I’m between jobs at the moment. One of the things this allowed me to work into my busy schedule was spending time with some good friends…

Besides photography, I’m also writing a few articles and interviews for RPS, painting the bathroom, applying for jobs, and running a host of errands.

As for full-time work, at this point it looks like I’ll be returning to it next week.
