365/2: 279. Unsettled weather.
Autumn’s here, for sure. Gotta get the boiler repaired soon.
365/2: 278. You can take the guy out of Princeton ... and still ...
365/2: 277. Remnants of our container garden.
Everything’s pretty much ‘past it’ now. No amount of watering can revive plants when they’re into autumn-shutdown-mode.
Strobist: How and Why to Keep a Location Catalog.
365/2: 276. Napping wife.
Came in from watering the courtyard, and couldn’t resist the snap.
365/2: 275. Ghostly shape in the water ...
365/2: 274. Late again, walking downtown, you can see the aspens changing up on the mountain.
I should have put this up yesterday, sorry.
A photographic show is opening at Monroe Gallery tonight ...
Joe McNally. I’ll leave shortly and go poke my nose in.
ReadWrite: Shooting Your Neighbor’s Drone May Be Illegal—And It May Not.
“There’s also the Salvo 12 Shotgun Silencer, which advertises itself with a mascot named Johnny Dronehunter, a tough looking guy who shoots down six DJI Phantoms in one go in the name of defending privacy.”
I told you so. Engage in amateur or ignorant behavior (flying over property sans permission), and this is going to happen eventually. The term ‘drone’ has made folks completely paranoid.
Two from Italian Ways ...
The things Italian Ways must do for the Italian tourist industry ...
365/2: 273. Cosmos are really happy that the summer heat is gone.
Netflix: Wanted - Grammaster.
I suspect my age would deter them. Social media gigs seem to go to the under-30 crowd.
My cousin Bob Allen visited NM a couple of weeks ago ... looky what he made me. The cholla wood is from my own yard! Totally cool.
Julien Douvier Animated photography: Cinemagraphs.
365/2: 271. Late again; should have posted this yesterday.
Reshuffling my hard drives, I like to leave the computer to do its thinking alone. Why this boring image? I was driving around returning equipment, doing errands, trotting over to 42A to look for my favorite do-rag (blew off during the Mountain Tour on Saturday). The entire day was car-oriented.
No, my do-rag is gone. Bought it on the way to Grand Teton in ‘05. It’s either been picked up, or shredded on barbed wire in our fall winds. Sad. And Buff doesn’t make that print anymore.
FAA: FAA Exemptions for Commercial UAS Movie and TV Production.
“In their applications, the firms said the operators will hold private pilot certificates, keep the UAS within line of sight at all times and restrict flights to the ‘sterile area’ on the set.” This sort of indicates how the agency is going to deal with drones. Operators need to have a knowledge of airspace, weather and more. Just because it looks and costs the same as a toy, doesn’t mean that operation in public airspace is without dangers.
EOSHD: Nikon D750 Review - initial thoughts and video footage.
“... I really miss my stabilised Canon lenses. The problem is for Canon lens owners like myself, aside from the very expensive 1D C, Canon are down across the range of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for performance. They are now a distant 4th on video quality behind Sony, Panasonic and Nikon and a mediocre 3rd behind Sony and Nikon when it comes to stills quality on their APS-C and full frame sensors.” Damn.
365/2: 270. This should have gone up yesterday, but I was just too tired.
We are well and truly into autumn now.
Yes, I’m behind the 8-ball.
I’ll catch up with stuff here shortly. Post-Concorso, there’s just so much to get accomplished in a very short period of time. Links will increase in frequency gradually once I get the Award Winner images finalized.
5,747 images taken in the last three days.
There’ll be probably about 2000 polished keepers out of all that. Most of the extra chaff was in taking extra shots while in a moving vehicle. I definitely need to rethink my hard drive setup on the office system ... a RAID is called for.
365/2: 269. Jag, baby.
365/2: 268. This ‘face’ makes me laugh out loud every time I see it in Lightroom ...
365/2: 267. All ‘Tucker’-ed out for the evening.
Santa Fe Concorso weekend starts today for me.
I may even be late with my 365’s. At worst, I’ll catch up on Monday. Wish me luck! There’s a 40 percent chance of storms (with small hail) that could really bollix things up on Sunday.
