This moth was on my bedroom wall when I woke up. It probably entered unnoticed the night before when we had the french doors open to let in cool air.

There wasn't enough light for a good photo, so I used an old flash set to manual mode, and a large piece of foam-core board as a reflector. The flash is to lower right, and the board is about 8 inches outside the photo to the left.

Boats berthed at Tai O | Hong Kong

This was taken during my first visit to Tai O, a fishing village located on the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong. The place is famous for its fisherman community who have built their houses on stilts over the waters. I have never seen a fishing village before in my life and it was a totally amazing experience to be in one. Having been to Hong Kong a couple of times, I regretted visiting Lantau Island only once. It is not your usual shopping spree but the culture and flavor of this village interests me more than the shopping streets.

Photo taken with Canon EOS 60D and Sigma 18-250mm HSM.

'Intersect'  ....  This is a spider web in the sunlight that is out of focus. The bright coins are where two filaments intersect in the web.

ACD Systems was founded in 1993 in Texas by technology and imaging visionary Doug Vandekerkhove. Doug foresaw the importance of the convergence of analog and digital (print, photos, scans,video and metadata) in the 80’s, revolutionizing how analog and digital information was used in pre-Web applications. Today ACD holds seven patents, and millions of ACDSee products are in use throughout the world.

ACD Systems has offices in the United States and Canada, supported by a team of global channel partners. With a product family that includes includes ACDSee Pro 6, ACDSee Pro 2 (Mac), ACDSee 15 photo editing and management solutions, and Canvas technical illustration software, the company serves millions of consumers, small and medium sized businesses, government agencies and educational institutions, and corporate customers.

Customers include General Motors, Caterpillar, Boeing, The New York City Fire Department, NASA, CNN and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. ACDSee software was used in the making of the movie Titanic because the filmmakers recognized that only ACDSee could provide the illustration, editing and management tools required for their large scale, complex development tasks and image management requirements.
