So how's this work? If you only have to vote on 15, the G+ layout makes it so the oldest photos don't get voted on at all. People certainly aren't scrolling al the way to the bottom to vote on those photographs.

Carbon Sequestration  - 
 
[This has nothing to do with the Domestic side of the fiscal cliff]

Sequestration is wrong in every way. Defense makes up 100% of the federal government's constitutional requirements in terms of what it is supposed to provide for its citizens. It makes up 20% of federal spending. It's already taking $487,000,000,000 in cuts over the next 10 years. And now the sequester will cut another $500,000,000,000 while domestic spending (including energy)- which makes up 80% of spending- only takes 500b? 

How's that make sense?

Aha. Woops. After hearing about the federal budget sequestration pretty much nonstop for the last 3 months, the word's lost all meaning to me except in regards to the fiscal cliff.

+Thomas Hawk Did you end up going with the V500 or the V700 to scan your films?

Or you could just send me the scanner and I'll use it until you decide it's time to get onto your project. Alternatively, I can scan a roll a week until you want to take over =)

Anyone know how to export Facebook birthdays to iCloud? I can do it to iCal, but not iCloud. #iCloud #Apple #Facebook #Calendar #Productivity

I love me some purple
Introduction
People often ask me why I took up photography. It's not something that's fascinated you forever; Why do you suddenly enjoy it so much? The simple answer is that it gives me a sense of peace.

There is so much beauty around us; the mechanical perfection of a Gallet timepiece, the love that drives a stranger to save a child from an oncoming bus, a picture perfect sunset. The poetic justice of having a perfect season only to lose in the championship game, the beautiful irony of requiring the world’s largest machine to find the world’s tiniest particle. A walk along a river, a drive down a country road. The roar of a jet engine, the rumble of a muscle car. The innocence in a child’s smile, the serenity in a grandmother’s eye. Duct tape and WD-40. The spark of a fresh idea in the mind, the constant beating of the heart. The grip of a tire on asphalt, a perfect gear fitting. A moving ballad, a striking riff. The hug of a stranger, the idea that you may have changed someone’s life. Fifty thousand people coming together to stop an unknown stranger from jumping off a bridge.

I’m not the greatest photographer to ever walk the face of our planet and I don’t strive to be. I simply attempt to capture as much of the beauty around me as I can. I think we photographers sometimes get caught up too much in the technical details- composition, exposure, cameras, lenses, strobes, tripods, and so on. A perfect photograph isn’t about the technical; a perfect photograph is a moment.

People like to think of a photograph as capturing a point in time. And that’s just not true. Since 1967, a second has been defined as "the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the Caesium 133 atom" (13th General Conference on Weights and Measures). A relatively common shutter speed of 1/60 seconds is equivalent to 153,210,530 periods of radiation. 0.0167 seconds is not a point in time at all. It’s over 150 million times the amount of time a dainty atom requires to vibrate once. That’s a moment in time.

I photograph to capture a moment, I photograph because I have to believe that there is beauty around us. We just have to look.

Take a look around. See something beautiful. It’s there, I promise you.

I'm originally from Houston, Texas and have spent a considerable amount of time in Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently located in the New London, Connecticut area.
