365/2: 359. Merry Christmoose! [Late post]
At a very enjoyable holiday party last night.
365/2: 358, outtake 1. Finally got a decent photo of Flit, our wintering hummer.
Didn’t realize she/he was sleeping until I proc’d the photos.
Later: Renting a Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD for next week, so I can get better shots. Supposedly better than the old vs1 Canon 100-400; and I’ll need the extra reach.
365/2: 358. Our house, on this snowy morn.
Our house, in the snow this morning, as seen on my early morning perambulation. Merry day-after!
365/2: 357. Christmas sunset, of course.
365/2: 356. To you and yours, a very Merry holiday season.
I’m tipping a Pinot Noir in your general direction, each of you. Huzzah! And kids, get to bed early. I thought I saw a red light off in the distant sky ...

365/2: 354. Snow moving in this afternoon.
Atlas Obscura: St. Nicholas’ Church in Hamburg.
This source seems to short sights (and sites) in Germany. Get cracking, AO. Lots of interesting stuff in Germany. LOTS. And not all connected with WWI and WWII.
365/2: 353. Cristo Rey church, on Canyon.
Later: Shapes of things.
The Luminous Endowment.
The Luminous Landscape looks to give back. With some help. Great idea.
365/2: 352. Amaryllis.
It was labelled as ‘red’. TJs screwed up.
365/2: 351. Eschewed the traditional stuff this year, went with a Scandinavian red/white theme.
A bit more spare; room to be, room to think. The visual clutter of Xmas gets to me.
I’m still doing some tests to verify, but it does look like a repeatable phenom so far. Using multiples of 160 ISO render greater dynamic range in still images than other ISOs. Found the comment on a video thread; most of us knew to use 160 for best video, but I’d never heard this applied to stills. YMMV.

We’ve seen similar pix before, but never so dramatic. Enjoy.
GigaOm: Flickr kills sale of Creative Commons prints, issues refunds.
“Even though the Flickr Wall Art service only offered images for which the owner had granted a Creative Commons license for commercial use, some complained that they believed the terms of the license only extended to online use — and not to physical prints as well. Some withdrew their works from Flickr altogether.” It should have been opt-in. Really dumb. Previously discussed.
It is astonishing, that on Flickr ...
I can have absolute no views, but someone’s favorited a photo. Astonishing.
365/2: 350. Just after dark.

365/2: 349. Early today - only because we just don’t often get fog.
And you know, I went out to take this photo, and forgot to get the mail. Back out again I go ...
365/2: 348. You’ll enjoy this one.
Completely unexpected after a sheet-cloud-grey day. There is so much difference in acuity when I use a prime lens ...

BPG is pretty impressive. Look at the texture of hair as you compare.
365/2: 347. Paperwhite in a teacup.
Think I’ve got a Brit in the house?
