I LOVE this! LOL! I keep hearing "Roll over Beethoven" in my mind as I look at this new version of the #VenusdeMilo  or #AphroditeofMilos  . Talk about updating a classic eh?! #3dmodel   #Aphrodite   #Louvre  
The Heavy Metal Goddess of Milo, shredding away on her golden... "lute"? while Zeus rides the Lightning, Mars Rusts in Peace, and Alexandros of Antioch is spinning in his grave ;-)

It always astounds me when we discover that things we take for granted as "modern" inventions were already being done long ago by our ancestors. Island building is a great example. Sometimes I think we give our ancestors short shrift for their creativity and knowledge.
 
Centuries before modern countries such as Dubai and China started building islands, native peoples in southwest Florida known as the Calusa were piling shells into massive heaps to construct their own water-bound towns.

This is another great example of the benefits of #photogrammetry  for #archaeology  & historic preservation. In a recent article about a scaled-down #3Dmodel  that was set up in London, some cynics questioned the value of attempting to record the condition of #Palmyra  or recreating it via photogrammetry. I call those critics a bunch of sour grapes. I wonder if they care as much about their own personal histories as they dismiss our collective cultural history?
In partnership with the DGAM, the ICONEM’s team was the first one to be in Palmyra since Daesh’s departure. New phase of the major project « Syrian Heritage », this mission has been an opportunity to give a clear picture of the damages suffered by the « pearl of the desert », and more specifically by the Temple of Bel as it has been left behind by Daesh fighters, using photogrammetry. The digitalized 3D model allows us to observe the existence o...

Mostly true statements, although a few of them surprised me. My personal observation is that #photographers  tend to be mean-spirited, asshat #trolls  to one another over the dumbest things---another words, just like any other #socialgroup  .
I’m like a lot of photographers. I want to shoot more often. And one big reason I don’t shoot as much as I like is that I waste too much time reading about

I'm not privy to all the details, but for as much as I like the #Titanic and the #EdwardianEra I can't see this being more than an expensive fad.

I've read that it'll be a near duplicate of the original ship with some safety and technological updates (as mandated by maritime law due in no small part to the tragic loss of life from the original event). But, that will mean that much of the interior will not look anything like the original? Will the Grand Staircase be replicated? What about the elaborate decorating scheme in the best suites and cabins?

And finally, how will it make enough income to offset the cost of maintenance & fueling in the long run? I really would like to see the Titanic come back, in a fashion, but I have a tough time seeing this iteration succeed in the long run. There is ambitious, then there is foolhardy.
Gather round, cruise fans: 106 years after the original vessel sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, a new version of the RMS Titanic is set to launch in 2018.

For anyone like myself who still gets a little flummoxed by the intricacies of #photography , this cheat card by #DanielPeters  of #PhotoblogHamburg  is a must-have. Thanks Mr. Peters!
Here's a helpful little infographic that has been floating around the Web. It's a simple look at how the "exposure triangle" -- aperture, shutter speed, an

I'm definitely noticing a better experience using #iMovie  for Mac. It is faster and smooth now. Before it used to be a little jerky when I tried to pan or scroll through a clip quickly. Not anymore. Thanks #Apple  !
Apple updated iMovie for the Mac today, making it a lot more like the iOS version.

I love #photogrammetry   #3dmodels  like this. This model of #MountFuji  reminds me of the old tactile #raisedreliefmaps  that once were so common when I was a child. Many of the companies that made these maps have either went out of business or stopped making them for want of demand. What a pity. At least with 3D models like this one, we all can print on demand a raised-relief map once again.
Mount Fuji, located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain peak in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft). An active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometres (60 mi) south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is snow-capped several months a year, is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well a...

This looks like a great possible #rangefinder #camera but the homepage for #Konost is conspicuously quiet. I really hope they're able to make this camera work. It is a minimalist, handsome design although I am judging it only by appearances.

I choose home life to the nightlife
Introduction
I'm a youngish middle-aged bear who has found increasingly that I prefers staying home to at the same couple of local gay watering holes. I was always the odd-man out when it came to what interested me and I've stopped trying to find a connection where none existed.

I'm a history and art buff. I try to watch all the documentaries I can get my hands on and I read as much as possible. I also enjoy SciFi and humor now and then. One of my favorite genre's is horror, not the slasher-porn stuff but more like the tension-filled stuff from overseas.

I love photography. I've been expanding my love of photography with 3D modeling in the last year. I'm becoming somewhat good at it but I have a long ways to go as I'm completely self taught.

I am single. I've been looking here and there online but haven't seen or met any men that have the right magic or chemistry. The majority of guys online are looking for one thing and while that's great, I find that it's not as satisfying for me as it used to be. I'd rather sitting nude on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and good documentary than having some slippery, kinky encounter (but that is only if I'm not with the right guy -- then I reserve the right to change my mind).

Like many people, my experiences with dentists weren't always very good (think root canal, fillings, etc) and as an adult I had avoided even basic cleanings for years out of fear. I was recommended to Sensational Smiles and finally went after much convincing from my healthcare team. Everyone at Sensational Smiles was great. They took a very frightened, snarky, outspoken man who was hypersensitive about everything and walked me through it each step of the way. They had the patience of Job. There were no surprises and they accommodated me far beyond what was necessary to get my cleanings (and another root canal and a crown) done. I'm getting better about taking care of my teeth and I don't dread my appointments with Sensational Smiles like I used to dread dentists in general. They'll be my preferred oral healthcare people for life!

I found that for a small town it is fairly good-sized as flea markets go. There is a lot of trash and treasures (what is what is up to each persons interpretation) mixed together all over the place. The Four Seasons Flea Market occupies what must be at least two former storefronts plus the whole basement under them. There is a lot of stuff to comb through and pick around. It is a surprisingly clean place considering all the merchandise. The prices are about what I would have expected around the area. Don't expect to come here and find the Mona Lisa for a song--what you'd expect to pay in larger towns and other communities applies here too. After all, this is a business and the days of nickel & dime prices for places like this are a distant memory for even the most die-hard optimists. The prices seemed a bit high on some things but not bad on others. The lady at the register was willing to barter a little on some items depending on who was selling them. I'd say that as long as you come to the Four Seasons Flea Market with a realistic set of expectations, you shouldn't leave disappointed. I myself will be returning a few more times as I saw plenty of nice collectibles hiding on the shelves.

Fawick Park is one of those overlooked gems that everyone drives by. It sits between two viaducts going in and out of downtown Sioux Falls so the rumble of traffic fades and rises constantly. If you don't know exactly where to look and fail to ask a local, it's easy to miss. Once you do find it, parking is on the street but make sure you feed the hungry meters. There is a full-sized cast of Michelangelo's "David" with no fig leaf, just the way the original was made. David has been a presence in downtown Sioux Falls since the early 1970s when he was placed here and had a virtual jungle planted around him for the sake of conservative decency. Eventually the jungle gave way but not so much because opinion had changed as it was found that Fawick Park had been the former site of a coal gasification plant that left a toxic legacy. The entire park had to be literally dug out and hauled away. The park was eventually rebuilt but with David turned to look towards the West and downtown and moved closer to the street since his old spot was now in a floodplain. In spite of the traffic noise, Fawick Park is a pleasant enough park but just be aware that a few people hanging around the park tend to make photographers uncomfortable at times even when they are plainly shooting the replica of David.

You can't beat the price for gently used furniture. Granted some of it looks a little dated, but it isn't anything that a little paint could fix.

On a lark, I dropped in on Olivia's mid-afternoon today to sightsee and shop a little if anything caught my interest. The staff was quite pleasant and didn't have the attitude of a person wishing they could work anywhere else. They were professional, discretely inquiring if there was anything in particular I was looking for, then left me alone to wander at my leisure. They never made me feel uncomfortable when I settled on my purchase and didn't try to push unnecessary extras. I think I was more nervous about the other gentlemen than anything else but as the custom, nobody approached anyone else unless they'd walked in together, joking about visiting Olivia's. Aside from being exiled to a small industrial park on the eastern outskirts of Tea and having shorter business hours than many gas stations (not their fault -- you can blame uptight city and county officials under pressure from know-it-all religious conservatives) there is nothing to dislike about Olivia's. Word of advice: if you park at the back of the building but are not coming in for the theaters, you need to come around to the front door. The back door is strictly for the theaters.

Not impressed. Dyson has a strict policy about acceptable practices and requiring a $60 "deposit" before Fonder will even look at my vacuum while under warranty isn't one of them. My Dyson had been to Fonder just four weeks before today and the repair man made a point of emphasizing that he'd cleaned the filters and vacuum before letting me pick it up. As it turns out, no he didn't. When I showed up today to drop off my Dyson for service again, that's when Fonder tried to spring the $60 deposit requirement on me. I walked out with my vacuum and contacted Dyson who quickly sent me to another business. I will never take any of my business to Fonder when it comes to Dyson and if you read this, just beware of their sneaky double-dipping policy.
