It’s on! Finally got approval form work Friday for the trip I’ve been thinking about for two years. The trip is a motorcycle, a camera and myself. See, there’s this place called Labrador of which I’ve heard. I’d like to see if it actually exists and what’s there. For numerous reasons, I’ll be keeping the dates to myself, but thought it would have value for some to have me document the preparation, the trip, the outcome.
First, please take the time to watch this clip from Cirque du Soleil:
Work. Insane. Hours. Tire.Red. Tired.
I’ve been spending more time with the little instrument. Enjoy.
It is not unusual for a person to express frustration about the way popular culture employs language or expresses themselves. Often, these statements are made by people who are more intent on defining their own perspective than denounce that of others. However it’s communicated in a way that’s clearly to ridicule the “masses”. Nascar, the Kardashians, Hollywood Blockbusters and numerous other things being peremptorily dismissed because of the belief that there can be nothing good or worthwhile in things that are so thoroughly produced and polished (though in some cases the polishing is done by different parties)(that was a cheap Kardashians joke). Though it seems that few argue that being popular within one’s own circle of influence is good. But I digress. Read the rest of this entry »
This week was another long one, but I’ve nought complain about.
There I go finishing another sentence with a preposition.
The novice photographer often feels as though the most important thing about taking pictures is the camera they get. This often starts with a budget and, once this is established, the most expensive body is then acquired. The lens(es) that will come as part of a kit are… well. They’re bundled for super cheap for a reason. They’re super cheap, at least compared to other lenses that are available. Upgrading a lens will make a newbie realise how important good lenses are. They can often make you feel like you just bought a new body.
The cameras and the kit lenses with which they are bundled work. They take very nice pictures. But they’re subject to very notable limitations. After learning some things the hard way, and after having done quite a bit of reading, I decided to share what I’ve learned in one post.
Lately things have been crazy, as most of you know. Living the corporate life, days are between twelve to fourteen hours, though the work is very interesting.
