Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my first CrossFit on-ramp session. Sure, I had some exposure to CrossFit and the workout from earlier and had even tried to do some on my own at the fire station. I have to admit that I was somewhat nervous…

I really did try to get more footage from our live fire exercise than I finally ended up getting. The reason is quite simple: our first attack was into such a hot fire that the GoPro case melted enough to leave the start/stop button inoperable. And since…

This has been a peculiar year as we’ve had the opportunity to have two live fire exercises followed by controlled burns of the buildings once we are done exercising. The house this time was a traditional post-war single family home that often has livable…

We haven’t seen the sun for weeks, so it has been quite gloomy and dark. Meaning that the black jobs have mainly been blobs of black in photographs. P.S. This was timed to come out on Dec 1, but I managed to both the timing so post-dated it now.

I finally got around to editing the photographs I made of the northern lights in last March. Thanks to the excellent tutorial on how to edit night photographs by +Mikko Lagerstedt I got some new insight into my editing process and managed to create these. More selections in my blog post at http://randomfire.fierymill.net/archives/2013/12/07/aurora-borealis-revisited/

Finally got around to listening to old +PhotoNetCast podcasts and enjoyed the discussion on selling prints in episode 80. And I was glad to hear that +Dave Wilson has also fallen in love with the Fuji X20. The more I use mine the more impressed I am (and yes, I should get around to sharing the photographs I've made with it).

I'm pretty sure anyone who uses an X20 falls in love with it!
