• Night Shots – South Huntington

    I pass this intersection every day on my way to work and I’ve been meaning to take some long exposure night shots for well over a year. We have some rain moving in and it was very foggy – which just reflects all the tungsten-heavy light pollution. Overall I’m pretty happy with them – especially […]

  • Lego Minifig Portraits

    Since winter won’t release its icy grip on New England, there’s no fun bugs and critters to take photos of. I was able to snap a bunch of frames at the random spider that apparently lives in the apartment, but I haven’t seen him since. I figure I gotta make some opportunities (and need to […]

  • Canon Doesn’t Like Prosumers

    I’m finding that the 200mm focal length simply isn’t cutting it for me anymore. My longest lens is the 70-200 f2.8L IS – which I love… a lot. I’ve known for a while that I need more reach and 400mm – 500mm is what I’m aiming at. When I was shooting on a 30D, it […]

  • Yay Spring!

    Depending who you ask, it’s spring. I guess there’s some minor debate over its exact start – but whatevs, I’m happier thinking that winter is behind me. I was up until about 2:30am working. The only reason I stopped then was because a bunch of stuff that was supposedly done before I was given the […]

  • Why not get started now…

    Been working since about 6:30 this morning. I was up and I have a lot to get done… so I might as well start in ASAP. The ability to log in remotely and start working is such a huge benefit and really aids productivity. If I wasn’t able to log on from home, I probably […]

  • Nothing ends. Nothing ever ends.

    I saw The Watchmen today. I am a big fan of the comics and expected a lot. Naturally, my expectations weren’t 100% met – but when do these sorts of adaptions truly deliver 100%? Little things aside, I was thoroughly pleased. First, the most unexpected aspect that I was happy with was the soundtrack. It […]

  • Trying Out My Canon MP-E 65 – House Spider

    I wanted to share some of the first “real” shots with my MP-E 65 that I took today. With the world starting to wake up around us, we’re getting some little critters to shoot… finally. This little house spider was hanging out on a door jamb and being rather patient with me while I snapped […]

  • Cubing

    I’ve decided that I want to learn a “speed solving” algorithm for the Rubik’s Cube. I already know a pretty easy-to-memorize algorithm that takes about a minute to two minutes to solve pending how much work needs to be done at each “step”. For whatever reason, I enjoy solving it – even if it’s very […]

  • Kaboom!

    On my way to work on Wednesday I saw a low-speed car accident. I’ll set it up for you. The accident happened at a stop light. Both cars were side-by-side at the red. The truck was probably the equivalent of a 24′ Uhaul (but wasn’t a Uhaul – it was another local delivery truck that […]

  • legoness

    When not working, I’ve been spending a lot of time building lego sets and tooling around with a tank concept. The inspiration comes from this awesome tank bot created by Brian Davis: I’ve been able to build the basic shooting mechanism and have prototyped a track as well. I need some additional parts before I […]
