changeup usual focus modes


after reviewing tonight’s pictures, i’ll change from single point AF to an area AF.  especially when it’s handed off to someone else.

hmm. closest subject mode?  guess i get to play some more (again.)

edit: found an article, what these settings do, and which ones i will use.  yay!

amanda got me the herp albert’s tijuana brass – whipped cream & other delights album for christmas, among some other things.

main reason?  the album cover. 🙂

i’ve listened to it a few times now.  it’s my second album from him.  only place i’ve heard it in rotation is over at‘s illinois street lounge radio stream.

my wife is awesome for this and many other reasons.

revert to an earlier time


“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”

history rules.

E pluribus unum

give me back my latin.

new christmas tree


we downsized from the christmas forest to a dinky tree.  complete with ten feet of LED lights.

shot in manual with the sb-600 to camera right with a 12″ snoot on it, 3 stops under exposed pointing at the star.
it was still underexposed, hence all the noise as i bumped it up a stop in lightroom.

chuck’s bachelor party


we started out with sushi @ musashi in southfield.  after, we headed over to the comedy castle for some laughs.  jer and pat stopped for a burger king crown we made chuck wear for the rest of the night.  at some point, the comedian asked the crowd if anyone was ADD.  chuck answered, ‘yes.’
“do you have any problems studying?”
“no. i just graduated from u of m and am the commencement speaker!”
“well then.  what’s your GPA?”
“what?  the guy with the 4.0 wasn’t available?  larry couldn’t do it?  are you sure he’s not available?  do you think ADD is inherited?”
“you killed the joke.”

fun ensued at zap-zone with go-carts and laser tag.  we finished the evening watching shoot em up.

awesome bachelor party.  glad i had a hand in planning it.  it was fairly tame so pictures were safe.
