Photography

When I was diagnosed with cancer January, 2015, I was in the process of getting ready for my first full year of focusing on photography. I had set up the year according to the photographic calendar: spring & summer for taking photos and traveling, camping through out southern Utah, building a better portfolio for shows and fairs. I have not come anywhere near that  devotion since. Since cameras now come with phones and are at the ready, I have half-heartedly used my camera phone to see how that might work. Here’s one example.

This is a bummer! I have always loved the great age of exploration. Shackletons journey is one of the most remarkable ever! Despite all that happenend, not a single person dies! NONE! This amazing even to this day with all the fancy ger we have. And cell phones. Radios. Cameras. They were left in the hashest plae on Earth with no means to communicate to the outside world.

Since the crew was going overland, on the ice, dragging sleds behind them, Hurley was not allowed to take all the pictures, which we on glass plates, therefore heavy and fragile. The process used was the Paget process. He was also the first to take color photos in this setting.

Doctor Who gets lengthy sabbatical as showrunner Steven Moffat quits | Ars Technica

Oh NO!!! The best, most fun, and silly and sexy show on TV is taking a break. I am not a TV junkie, FAN, by any stretch. But Dr Who saved me while I was recovering from my bone marrow transplant due to cancer. Besides the folks who have been doctors and their ability to keep me laughing as well as providing a modicum of challenge to my drug addled brain, it provided structure at a time I could not buy a schedule.
Quick note: not a fan of Capaldi yet. It always takes time to adjust to a new Dr. So far, Matt Smith is BEST. Of course when you have Amelia Pond to always save your ass, how can you go wrong?
