Not Bad, But I'll Do Better Next Time.

In an art class in 2000 I made a landscape with pastels. I liked it, despite it’s technical shortcomings, so today I tried another one. It’s not great, either, and certainly rushed as I spent only about an hour on it. However the result is encouraging and I think I’ll try again.pastels-1.jpg

Here is my first and prior to tonnight only other atempt at a pastel landscape.pastels1.jpg

New Candidate For Contest Entry

My Lightroom 3 library somehow got börked durring the conversion to beta 2 and the thumbmnails weren’t all showing their developed versions, thus I missed a great landscape when asking what I should submit to the calendar contest.alberta-left-out-1_.jpg

Drug Dealers Ruined Today's Post

Today I was going to post about using an pair of iPhone apps and a compass to determine in advance exactly where the sun will be at any given time, including when sunset, twilight etc will be and magically when exactly the sun will be at the top of that tree or building.

Howevver, I went to go take the photo of the sun sinking into the basketball hoop and there were drug dealers in the school parking lot. I’m not about to set up a tripod and start taking pictures.

I did go into the field and set up about 200m away and try and salvage the shot, but it was too late. They didn’t like that either and got out of their car and chased me off.

Oh well.

Instead you get this crap, enjoy. foiled sunset-1.jpg
