Google is celebrating Charlotte Bronte's birthday today. Here are a couple of facts about Charlotte:
Charlotte Bronte was 4'9" or 4'10" (1.45m) with a very slight build.  One of her dresses that we saw today on display at the Bronte parsonage in Haworth looks tiny. And, here's another fact: If her father had not changed his ...

In a recent survey of photographers/readers of TheOnlinePhotographer, the Nikon D700 came out as a favourite. Back in 2009 when I had a D700 I did some tests of RAW versus in-camera JPEGs.

Here are the results:

I like my TIFF files more than either RAW or JPEG even though they use up a lot more room. I tend to use the camera that allows me shoot in TIFF when ever I can because the quality of the images is so good even though I have considerably fewer millions of pixels less to work with.

Visions Of The Future
It will be a Tuesday, around 11am. He (or 'she') will get up from his desk and walk out because he isn't going to do this any more. He will walk out onto the street. He will be struck by how strongly he feels that he is going to do this.

He is going to stop the merry-go-round of the office and this way of doing things. He sees the whole structure and he isn't going to be part of it. There has to be a better way.

He feels slightly dazed, but his heart pounds when he reaches the street and finds that many, many people are there, standing like he is standing, drinking it in.

Favourite Quote
My favourite quote is a long one - so if you are looking for something short and catchy, you might want to skip this.

The quote is from Isaiah Berlin's 1957 Herbert Samuel lecture on Chaim Weizman, in which Berlin said:

“Weizman had all his life believed that when great public issues are joined one must above all take sides; whatever one did, one must not remain neutral or uncommitted, one must always - as an absolute duty - identify oneself with some living force in the world, and take part in the world’s affairs with all the risk of blame and misrepresentation and misunderstanding of one’s motives and character which this almost invariably entails.

Consequently .. he (Weizman) called for no compromise, and denounced those who did. He regarded with contempt the withdrawal from life on the part of those to whom their personal integrity, or peace of mind, or purity of ideal, mattered more than the work upon which they are engaged and to which they were engaged and to which they were committed, the artistic, or scientific, or social, or political, or purely personal enterprises in which all men are willy-nilly involved.

He did not condone the abandonment of ultimate principles before the claims of expediency or of anything else; but political monasticism - a search for some private cave of Adullam to avoid being disappointed or tarnished, the taking up of consciously utopian or politically impossible positions, in order to remain true to some inner voice, or some unbreakable principle too pure for the wicked public world - that seemed to him a mixture of weakness and self-conceit, foolish and despicable.”

Public - in the last week

The outside is painted a matt grey and the name is painted on in large, plain white letters. Inside it has a more traditional feel - not at all like the deconstructed outside. Their coffee is excellent, rich and creamy. Not burnt, not bitter, and not weak. And the prices are reasonable. And the croissants are good. The tables are sturdy and don't wobble, and the chairs are comfortable. The place is on a corner, with two large windows, and the place feels light and airy without us feeling like we are sitting in a goldfish bowl. In fact it feels snug and cosy - somewhere to relax and read the paper while we drink coffee. The staff are quick and friendly, and retire quickly as well so that the customers can get on with the job of drinking and eating. Again, the coffee is exceptional. Update March 2014 I still enjoy going there.
