365/2: 109. Sandra, concentrating.

Old Nikon 75-300 mounted on my 50D; terrible quality, sorry. Worth the shot, though.
Macworld: Hands-on with Flickr 3.0, with new features that make Flickr cool again.
Sez you. Do we really need another Instagram? ‘Do not merely put on a mask of my ideas, for it will be an illusion and you will thereby deceive yourself.’ Krishnamurti.
Photo Rumors: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens (Canon version) tested at DxOmark.
Hmmm. I rented the Zeiss 50mm F2 Makro and liked having an f/22 in addition to half life-size detail work. I’d miss the 1.4 shallow DOF, perhaps. But 800 or so extra smackers’ll buy another lens. 50mm isn’t that compelling a focal range.

Grumpy ham on the hoof.
A LIFE Photographer’s Gorgeous Early Polaroids.
365/2: 106. Struggling for the shot today.
After a day of digging into Expression Engine programming (changing an existing site’s mobile layout through Foundation 5), my brain is just *not* in a creative space. I liked the pattern against the viga crack, and that’s all.
Fashion Gone Rogue: Unretouched Lady Gaga Versace Ads.
A whole lotta manipulation goin’ on.
car-ux.com: Dashboard views of latest cars.
Luxurious. I prefer the ones I shoot at Santa Fe Concorso each year. For example … racing Corvette, gullwing Mercedes, convertible 300SL, AC Cobra, unrestored Jaguar D-type, Aston Martin DB-5, Ferrari, Jaguar E-Type, Dino Ferrari, Chevy Corvair, Hispano-Suiza, and the Porsche 550, my favorite for minimalism.
365/2: 105. A bit of selective color fun.
Still a little cold, after our recent spate of snow, to sit outside … hence the blue pillow.
DP Review: Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK.
“The magnets are device-friendly and do not interfere with your camera or other electronic devices.” I don’t know about you, but I eschew magnetic trifles when dealing with CF/SD cards. Nice idea, not on my list.
The Luminous Landscape: Photography and The Death of Reality.
“The message of this article is twofold: One, to get you inspired to make the most creative images ever, and not to be afraid to follow your heart when it comes to digital enhancements. Two, to encourage you to share, or at least mention, your processing techniques when you share an image with others, so they, like the Ansel Adams letter-writer, are not disappointed if they try to make the same kind of image you made at a location or in the studio. I know that is not always possible, and I don’t do it all the time, but it is something to keep in mind.”
JunkCulture: Photographer Captures the Haunting Beauty of Abandoned Shopping Malls.
They sucked the life out of vital, traditional, walking downtown areas. Remember that, as you view these.

paulstamatiou: Design for Curation.
“Swiping down to hide less-than-stellar photos is as satisfying as crossing something off your to-do list. It’s the only curation tool you need for a stark gallery app.” I can think of many apps I’d love to have this feature in.
Youtube/DigitalRev: Fujifilm X-T1 Hands-on Review.
Can’t help it; I love these folks and their quirky reviews. I think I need to rent one of these mirrorless wonders.
Flightclub/Jalopnik: The Awesome R/C Plane Video That Pissed Off The FAA.
Hmmmph. I suspect proof skills/training may end up being required, along with insurance, for use over dense public areas. Most R/C’s don’t have cages around their propellers, and can easily cause personal injury. Imagine the outrage when a newbie takes a $600 drone purchased from Amazon and flies it over a local playground, loses control, and injures a child … all rendered in spectacular color footage.

Near 80 yesterday, and now we have a winter storm watch for northern NM. Weather’s moving in!
Later: Outtake, just before dark. Strange brown strip of clouds.

Our other plum tree is in full bloom. Sun is happy about it.
