  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Buried In Your Black Heart

    Nothing major to report. Just lots of little things. Today’s Wednesday, so I picked up some comics on the way home. It was a good day for some titles that I’m a fan of – Deadpool, Farscape, Hellboy and Army of Darkness. I’m going to need to get a new box to hold comics and […]

  • New Photo Gallery Created

    If you look up, you’ll see a new link: Photo Galleries. I wrote some code to leverage the existing gallery engine that I’m using and display a nice listing of the galleries that I have to show. I’m running the exec-php plugin to allow me to actually embed code in my posts and pages, which […]

  • Grand Cayman Photos Added

    In 2008 we went to Grand Cayman for about a week and a half to do some diving. Due to some technical issues, the underwater shots really didn’t turn out, but I got a handful of good topside shots that I’ve posted. They’ve been added to the regular galleries and you can check out the […]

  • The Post-Vacation Grind

    I’m currently at the dealership getting some minor work done on my Jeep. The heater dial only works when it’s in the “high” mode and I get a small amount of weird feedback when in 4WD. The first is likely a really quick fix. The second, not so sure. We’ll see. I’m also getting the […]

  • 99% Packed Up – Last Few Hours In Paradise

    I’m amazed at how much easier it was to pack everything up for the return than it was for the arrival. I guess I have all the experience of having done it once before to help it along, whereas the first packing was a bit of a learning experience. One thing that has come out […]
