I like film photography and use up a lot of film. I also needed a new key chain as my old one was made out of leather and was falling apart. Light bulb! I take my film to the local Costco and Lily is on friendly terms with the people behind the counter. So I… Read more No, they are not miniature grenades
It’s probably not going to shock anyone, but I really do not understand the ways and hows of women’s clothing. But I do like to use any excuse to take pictures. Lily always goes with us to the Easter Sunday mass and afterwards we head to breakfast. Before we headed out she was wearing a… Read more I remain fashioned challenged
I wish I thought to take a “before” photo. Last year I purchased another Olympus Trip 35 for 2 reasons. The first reason was to replace the camera that had taken a hit and stopped working. The second reason is that I wanted to try to re-skin one. Since the replacement camera cost less than… Read more New skin for an old Olympus Trip 35
As I embark on taking care of the household while Lily is away, I thought it would be a good idea to take notes for when she returns on the 2oth. It’s like a blog within a blog and I’m going to have fun with it. Monday Day 1 https://twitter.com/#!/jan_dembowski/status/179150138676232192 That didn’t go very well.… Read more Report from the home front
I collect old parts for a junk pile cameras and today I found an old Sunpak Auto 121C flash at the thrift shop. When it comes to cameras, the local thrift shop isn’t often a good place to go picking. They’re like a magnet for all sorts of broken junk, most of which are really… Read more Thrift shop find: Sunpak Auto 121C flash
After much prodding I have finally convinced Lily to post to her own blog. That intense conversation went like this and took a lot out of me. Me: You should post articles about what you are doing or topics you like. It’s fun. Her: Okay. Me: *blinks* Her: That looks new. Do you know where… Read more So! 10 days left to my own devices
Update: Sometimes I DO over think a problem and a solution. Which is odd because SSL is also one of my (supposedly!) strong points. Skip to the comments below for something that Andrew Nacin pointed out. 😀 ——————————– Part of my professional life is to think about topics like data leakage. That’s when you do… Read more Get Your Tin Foil Hats Right Here!
Tim Daly’s always good, but add Nathan Fillion and it’s just plain GENIUS. The show is well produced and my favorite part is take 2 with Michael Rosenbaum.
Last weekend my family was having dinner at my in-laws, looking at photos from their recent trip to China, and having a good time. Since I knew there would be a lot of us there I took my cameras. Here’s a photo I took with my DSLR and no flash. It’s a good capture and… Read more An example of film vs digital
I have a little girl (and a boy) who will love the movie Brave. I’ll take them to see it almost as soon as it comes out. Thanks to The Mary Sue for sharing this. I’m one of 4 boys and have zero experience dealing with little girls. That’s why I can say it’s different… Read more I am SO taking the kids to see this movie
