BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO
CONSOLIDATE YOUR DRIVES SO BACKUP IS EASIER
Just had the SSD that has my lightroom catalog  from 1999-2012 fail and the backup failed a few weeks ago. REMEMBER TO BACK UP TO 2 DIFFERENT HARD DRIVES. Luckily I have an older backup so I only lost any metadata/organization I did in this past year. 
In trying to recover I found Amazon is shipping 8TB hard drives now for $299. I plan to consolidate 2x 4tb drives in 8tb drives so that only have to carry around 5 drives as my backup :)

Somehow this slipped past me, but 6TB drives are now shipping (still in the ridiculously priced phase and wprobably will be until seagate comes out with their competitor in Q2 of this year)

The CMS detector aka "compact" muon solenoid (3 stories tall and 300 feet underground) at the large hadron collider.  The protons are travelling at 99.99% of the speed of light when they collide in the middle of this "camera"

Remember, Portland Open Studios is this weekend and next. I'll be demonstrating how I built my 5000 lego man mosaic and talking about my photographic process. Buy the iphone/android app to get the list of locations and go see pottery, welding, painting, etc in action! You can also buy a map or calendar in my gallery that will act as your ticket/guide.

Portland Open Studios AND frame sale this weekend
Yes, that is a rose made of 10000 LIPSTICK TUBES. 
This crazy artist was jury selected to be part of Portland Open Studios http://portlandopenstudios.com/ this weekend and next. I'll be in the gallery from 10am-5pm saturday and sunday demonstrating the process I go through for building a mosaic like the lego golden gate bridge or the forthcoming lipstick rose.
I also have a bunch of brand new never used frames for sale 24x36 down to 5x7 for super cheap (starting at $1)

PORTLAND -- NORTHERN LIGHTS -- FIRST THURSDAY
If you're in Portland, come down and say hi and see the new northern lights show in the gallery. I'll be playing real time footage shot at ISO 51200 on the video wall (most videos you see online are time lapsed)

or check out a couple of Bryn's non aurora pieces at the Augen Gallery (817 SW 2nd Ave) which is having an opening featuring Portland Open Studios members.

Did you know I have a blog? I do! I'm not the most regular but I don't think I've ever mentioned it here. This post I wrote about how my eyes affect my artistic preferences
