Oh and in case folks wonder where I've been, it is just that the only accessible way for me to use G+ remains to be on either my iPhone or my iPad. Neither of these of course usually have a keyboard, although I am looking into a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad quite soon to make generally everything easier.

All of the modifications that I had made to #G+ on Chrome at some point stopped working. If someone knows how I can currently get a wider main column when it is in one column and #accessibility mode already, that in and of itself would let me be around a lot more. The narrow column is just too narrow for me to track text over. This is without even talking about the annoying extra motion and top bar and things that are harder to change that I had previously resigned myself to dealing with.

I also need to be able to adjust the colours in order to fix some of the very low contrast gray text and such. Unfortunately I just don't have the know-how to actually write the modifications myself. I've also avoided updating the G+ app because I don't know if anything has happened to it that would make it less usable.

So, that's pretty much the state of things.

This is where we ventured into the greenhouse that the last picture was at the door of. It's an old, mostly abandoned greenhouse thing that's on our campus. Julia and I had a lot of fun exploring the horticulture section of campus, which has fallen largely into disuse.

This is a picture of a friend of mine from school, Julia, from a recent photo shoot that we did after school. It's one of my favourites from the entire afternoon. I rarely, rarely do this sort of photoshoot, but we both had a lot of fun.

Thanks. This was shot at 1/640th of a second at f1.8 using a 35mm f1.8 prime lens, which gets that perfect depth of field for her and the rose that she's holding on to to be in focus, and nothing else.

this is BS, this anonymity thing that entitles everybody to be as mean as they can REALLY needs to stop.

One more for the night, I uh. Basically couldn't resist. Uploading just one seems like too much of a teaser. Same hills and clouds a little closer to the road.

It's been quite a while since I got around to posting any photography. Part of that's just not having been able to sit at the computer I do my postprocessing at for any length of time. Instead, I've been out there taking photos and hopefully once the semester ends, I'll get a lot up here for everyone.

This photo was taken off of the east side of Sesnon, in the hills that border the San Fernando Valley. It's part of an exploration into digital recreation of some of the old film looks, trying to capture something I can never have (as I will never be able to work with film processing chemicals because of asthma, film is expensive, and other limiting factors), perhaps, but rewarding nonetheless. I love how the clouds end up looking, and I love how it doesn't end up feeling 'shopped or faked, but somehow organic, like it grew out of the mind and the earth. Anyway, I'm rambling and I should get to bed, but I hope everyone else is doing well too.

I miss G+, I just don't have the right time or space for it as much in my life when school's like this.

I love the light in this picture. And I really like Julia's smile, it really makes the photo. (Actually, she was a great model to work with, which was an awesome surprise for an unplanned photo shoot that started as something fun for us to do after class.)

Two more of the pictures from the photo shoot with Julia. I wish that I'd gotten a picture that showed how huge and beautiful this tree is.

Unfortunately every one that I did also showed the parking lot. (Oops!) We'll just have to do a photo shoot somewhere, one day, in somewhere other than school campus.
