I've been restoring some interesting old photos recently. Ctein's book "Digital Restoration from Start to Finish" is a lifesaver.

Richard Kelley has some great photos of the F1 circus in the late 70's and early 80's. I really love some of his pictures of Gilles. They certainly bring back memories.

This contraption is pretty cool, isn't it? I also love planimeters. There's a good chapter on those in the book "How Round Is Your Circle" by John Bryant and Chris Sangwin.

Here's a kickstarter project you'll want to get in on. They only need 20,000,000 pounds for the initial planning stages. The stretch goal is a bit higher though.

I just ran into this great post by Emmanuel Goossaert. It's a todo list for when you're implementing the algorithm from that cool research paper you've just read. I've had to learn several things on this list the hard way.

Not much of a picture, but I got the photo sphere feature in the 4.2 upgrade and had to step outside and try it out.
