Definitely a good day yesterday. (You need to say these things to yourself from time to time because nobody else will. Except your parents and maybe your kids). Good day because I had my debut on PetaPixel with a short article on brain capacity and street…

The surface of a photograph might differ. In fact it always does but that is another matter. An important distinction has to be …
