In this day and age, it may be worth remembering that conspiracy theories are nothing new ...
I found the real story behind the main character, Karl Koch, quite intriguing when I first read about it some 20 years ago ... The "23" lead me to the film, of...
Today marks the 20th anniversary of - Wikipedia:
Yes, 2001-01-15 was the day the site went online. It's come a long, long way - while basically maintaining all principles it's based upon. Pretty darn impressive.
Take it as it was conceived (with lots of tongue in at least four cheeks):
And here's a more palatable version of the general idea:
Most people are more familiar with version "4" ... but "1" appeared alongside "9" on the iconic White Album (I own the original vinyl ...).
Anyone still remembering this?
It always strikes me the so-called Deadly Sins are so very human in nature ...
N.B. I report on this strictly from a historical standpoint, not a moral or theological one.
On this date, in 1977, Apple Computer was officially incorporated (it was founded less than a year earlier, on April 1 1976). The rest is history - if you like it or not ...
He's going of on a tangent after some eight minutes or so - he routinely does that; I don't want to endorse him or...
Alright, as the Commissioner has ruled this acceptable, here is a bonus round, or a side quest, involving Single in January. Each weekend, shoot and develop some film. My rules are: I have to either shoot or finish off a roll over the weekend and post a scanned photo from the weekend (no photos...
As promised a long time ago, we'll do it:
The Single in January 2021 (SiJ 21) challenge!
The core rules:
Take at least one image per day during one month - and post (only) one image to each day's thread. The image doesn't have to be posted on the same day it was taken, but regular...
Move Along Now. 25seconds f/9 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
Taken on the same night as day 30. Was really enjoying the longer exposure images. You could do these one right after the other and no 2 would look alike. I think I'm going to make a thread and post some more of the shots for the last two...
Burning Through. 0.6sec f/6.3 ISO 1600 shot at 40mm.
Messing around outside again at night, playing with trees and the moon. I had fun trying to figure out the compositions I wanted and trying to picture the next one.
Cloudy Night. 1.3sec f/4.3 ISO3200 shot at 53mm
Was outside playing with long exposures again. There's something fun and enjoyable to me about doing long exposures at night. Maybe its the quietness. I don't know, but I know this summer I will be out more at night as it will be more enjoyable...
Silhouettes. 40sec f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
Thought the overcast night with the glow from the lights gave neat atmosphere. Spent a while outside getting different shots and really liked how this one turned out.
Foggy Moon. 8sec f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
I got home from my cousin's daughter's birthday party and noticed the moon looked neat with the nice blue sky, so I decided to get a shot of it. Then proceeded to play around with getting different shots. I mean might as well while I have the camera...
Sparkling. 250s f/5.6 ISO800 shot at 150mm.
All the snow is pretty much gone from being up near the 50's last week but behind the house there's a bunch of ice and along the edges it has a cool texture. I used the flash to make the ice sparkle.
Wagon Bolt. 125s f/5.6 ISO400 shot at 150mm.
Played with the little flash that came with the EPL5. Not the best output but it worked. I also had some more fun in post with textures. Was originally going to post the B&W one but I liked how the textures added to this image.
