Faux wear, but the wear reveals copper brass (see comments for clarification). In spite of the ‘poseur’ bells in my mind, it’s awfully good looking. The price will be breathtakingly high, no doubt.
Economics in Plain English: Art, meet Economics.
“It’s like a Mercedes-Benz, you drive it off the lot, it loses half its value.” Cold comfort in the art photography market.
Snow’s supposed to be moving in tonight.
Unsettled at the moment. Clouds are torn into different layers. Yesterday’s dawn shot of the Ortiz to the south.
Medium: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Put Your Baby Photos Online.
“Wait a minute. How is this possible? Seriously, is it even allowed? Aren’t we violating the privacy of these children and their families by commercializing these intimate family moments? We share your concern. In fact, this is precisely our point: By selling these mugs we’re violating people’s privacy in three ways ...”

Science: Drones and satellites spot lost civilizations in unlikely places.

I could just stop blogging today with this ... something I’ve always meant to do myself, but oh-so-wonderful to see someone, anyone doing it.
The Luminous Landscape: Sony A7II and Tamron 150-600mm in Antarctica.
Given this, I have to believe the Tamron 150-600 I rented was a bad specimen. Look at those pix!
Phnom Penh Post: Naked temple shoots perplex.
“Far from being harmless fun, the behaviour was deeply offensive to Khmer culture.” I suppose, with easy smartphone photography at your fingertips, everyone wants to do a fashion-quality (high production value) selfie. Narcissism run up against cultural mores. More will occur.
From 2006, a stuccoed and painted wall in downtown Taos, NM.
Italian Ways: Urban Geometry.
AtomicObject: Setting up Cheap, Long-Term Backups on Glacier Storage.
Of interest. Rather than collect local hard drives ...
