A time lapse of Steve cooking Thanksgiving Day lunch: ham, squash casserole, and sweet potato casserole. Yum! (Since his birthday was the next day, I used a vintage look. [EG] )
This is one of the major reasons I believe we have massive surveillance by government in democracies around the world. This is one reason the government wants higher education to be prohibitively expensive and public school children not to be critical thinkers. Russell Brand is a bit of a loose canon. He’s funny. He’s smart. […]
This guy (John Green) blows my mind. In so many different ways! Once you listen to John in this video, you will want to subscribe to their (John and Hank, his brother) YouTube channel, Vlogbrothers, which has over 1,000,000 subscribers! Brilliant stuff. Their Facebook page is here.
When I was a child, Panama City Beach was a really fun tourist trap. Not much public beach was left in the tourist area. Destin, however, was nothing but public beaches with the rare, tiny house or two in one small area. Miles and miles of unspoiled, public beaches, as far as you could see. […]
I hadn’t heard of this guy: Tom Scott*, but he’s clever. I particularly like these projects… To me he’s asking the same question I ask too often: Are we creating a future in which we really want to live? Welcome to Oversight Welcome to Life * So who is he? From his blog: I […]
This has been making the rounds lately. Since it’s so cute, I’m including it here for those who may have missed it.
When I awoke before the sun came up, the sky was filled with interesting layers of clouds. So I plopped the tripod on the front deck and started shooting the sunrise. You never know how the clouds and sunrise will interact. I was hoping that just before the sun peeked over the mountains, it would […]
All we need is a disco ball in this video: a time lapse of the sunset in Sausalito as seen from the front yard. The closest cloud interested me. I had high hopes, expecting great and swirly things from it. About 20 minutes into the time lapse shoot, I noticed that the clouds to the […]
It happens really quickly! I was “camped out” atop Hawk Hill, determined I was going to shoot a time lapse of the fog burning off the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and the city. The whole area was completely socked in with dense, fast moving fog. Torrents of fog were moving in over my head and […]
Conrad the Kat, also known as “Beast” and “Animaux Sauvage,” is a total fur factory. He generates more fur than any critter alive. He sheds everywhere. Enormous fur bunnies lie in his wake as he saunters around his lair. I’ve given up the idea of having fur-free dark clothes. A colleague told me she vacuums […]
This morning (written on Tuesday, April 23, 2013) I was up early to shoot a sunrise timelapse of the Golden Gate Bridge from Horseshoe Cove. You meet really interesting people in the early hours of the morning when you’re shooting solo, and this morning was no exception. Bamboo I’m not sure if that’s how he […]
I was in Sausalito when I saw what the fog was doing; so, I rushed home and grabbed my camera equipment. The location was fiercely windy, and the wind chill was extremely cold. Even though I was wearing a heavy shirt, wind-proof vest, and winter coat with a hood, I was freezing! I was also […]
I am always pondering, at some level, what motivates us to do and say the things we do. Today I stumbled upon this treasure. This short video of a TED presentation by Louie Schwartzberg is a “must see!” The pause and the reflection it brings are transformative. Beauty and seduction are nature’s tools for survival […]
I’ve blogged, last year, about Dove’s Real Beauty campaign. They have started another campaign. And while one could find numerous potential issues with methodology, I think their campaign makes some irrefutable points that need to be assimilated into our culture. Corporate fashion and glamour marketing promotes a tremendously unhealthy self image, especially among women. They […]
I’ve mentioned before on my blog that I really enjoy volunteering at the Point Bonita Lighthouse about once a month. Ranger Sarah, who coordinates the PoBo VIPs (Point Bonita Volunteers In the Park) recently offered everyone the opportunity to take a day trip to the East Brother Light Station. A handful of us were able […]
I have been wondering: wouldn’t it be possible to have multiple 360º panoramas (pole panos would be best) in relatively close proximity to one another and actually fly a virtual camera (using pan, tilt, zoom) through that 3D space creating the illusion of free flight through space, moving, as needed, between panoramic spheres. Then, today, I […]
