Oppo, I have a need for answers. My wife has never had to opportunity to experience a real Christmas tree, so we were hoping to get one for our apartment this year. The problem with this plan is that our car is a 2003 Honda Accord coupe. Current plan is to put a moving blanket on the roof, put the netted tree on top…
So have some pictures from Minneapolis, MI, Prairie du Chien, WI and Lodi, WI. I miss mountains (even/especially the Blue Ridge) but Wisconsin isn’t too bad. These and many more (in the full resolution glory), available on my Flickr.
I’d post a bunch of new photos, but Chrome and Flash and Flickr are all arguing and just can’t get along. So feel free to skip the next two paragraphs of my rambling and look at a collection of older photos.
My sister and her boyfriend flew into Chicago to visit a friend over the Labor Day weekend, so my wife and I drove down to see them. We spent a good portion of the afternoon walking around downtown looking at cool buildings and hanging out. I’ve been pretty absent from this page for a bit, and haven’t done a lot of…
Whelp, I’ve been gone for a while. Graduated, got married, moved halfway across the US. Turns out each of those events is really time consuming, and all three at once is kinda overwhelming.
Played around with the macro tubes again. It was actually bright enough to not have to push to a crazy high ISO.
From last night. The new editor is interesting.
Hiked the Doyle's River Trail with some friends on Saturday. Due to the rain and time constraints we hiked from the parking lot to the lower falls and back (3 mi.) instead of the 7 mile loop.
I'm looking at taking a trip to Scotland next June and wondered if anyone had advice about renting a car. A quick search on the Avis site shows this would be about 200 pounds for 8 days (for a Fiat 500 class car), which seems not unreasonable, especially given unlimited mileage. We're looking at a loop starting in…
I've been pretty busy with school lately, so instead of going out and shooting I've been taking short breaks to edit photos. I'm sure I've posted some of these before, but have 'em anyways.
Do I go for the Konica AR 50mm f/1.4 or the Contax Planar T* 50mm f/1.4? Contax is very likely the better lens, but is $250-300 more expensive. I can afford it mostly, and I do sort of regret cheaping out and getting the Konica AR 40/1.8 instead of the CV 40/1.8 I really wanted, but it would save a bit and should be a…
Left work early today, and happily ran into this.
(attempt 2 due to terrible Internet)
I realized I put a lot of crap on my Flickr, and then realized Flickr didn't bother storing my high resolution TIFFs, so I'm considering moving to a different image host/display for quick back-up and sharing. I know I can clean up my Flickr, and I have it down to ~400 photos, with about 200 more to go through, but I'm…
I think we can agree, Clarkson has the best reaction to the ice bucket challenge.
In the past 2 days, I've seen 2 Phaetons. No pictures, because I was behind the wheel, but they're pretty nice looking. Not really my type of car, but probably the best looking of the massive executive sedans.
So I found this when I was driving around yesterday. Asked the owner if I could take a few shots.
