La version del siglo XXI es Carlos con su drone, y como en la tira comica de su tocayo, el árbol tambien gana.
Me he pasado el fin de semana intentando recuperar la tarjeta de memoria del drone que acabó a 15 metros de altura infinitamente ligado al arbol que lo recogió en su caída libre
Amazing Van Goghs. And the kids held very well. They did listen, payed attention and worked on their treasure hunt. And now they are getting their lunch.
De viaje por los US. Hoy tocan fuegos de artificio en Washington DC, taxation without representation. Mucha gente se ha reunido en el Mall. Y hace fresquete.
Rush U11 girls are ball girls. Marta is on the field, getting the balls for the players during the game. She is right now standing behind the Houston Dash bench, talking to the players.
There is a lot of air traffic before 10PM. All of these contrarian trails need to be deleted before posting an image, but the excitement at 6AM is hard to contain, right?
New time stack with a new lens. First night cloudless, waxing moon and Mars as closed as it will be for the next two years. 7:30pm to 1:30am, not by choice but by battery charge. 8 seconds exposures at f5:6 at 200 ISO, every 30 seconds. Incandescent bulb white balance selection, because it works well with highway high discharge lamps.
Marta needs reading glasses and we are testing Warby Parker. I read about them years ago, but since everyone in the family who needed glasses were set, I couldn’t find an excuse to try them. Now I have one :)
Warby Parker is a new way of getting prescription glasses. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere with a Warby Parker retailer, you can touch the glasses and try them on and then order online a get them two days later (two days!!!). If not, you have the option of Home try-on. You pay for the glasses, up to five pairs, you try them at home and ship back the ones you don’t like/ fit. And like with Toms, with every pair you buy, someone in need gets a free prescription glasses.
What it is not to like?
We will keep you posted.
After some time thinking about HDR, and doing HDR, I wanted to do star trails again, but finding the right night seemed impossible. Even on a beautiful night in Moab, during spring break, 15 miles away from town, in a secluded inn inside the Colorado river canyon, even then things did not line up. So for two nights in a row, checking that there will be no rain whatsoever, I have left the camera in the yard, pointing to the North Star with the intervalometer set on the camera. This example comes from 1 shot per minute at 200 ISO, 4″@f2.8 and focusing at infinite. From 10pm to 5am, that makes around 360 shots that I merged with starstax (for Macosx) and change the hue -180 degrees because no one likes highway orange flood lights.
I keep reading that I have to have fun at work, that this is the only way my creative juices will flow and I will ultimately be happy at work and beyond. So the chore starts now: how to make work fun? Chase the project you think it will fulfill you (by having fun and joy)? Rewrite your title? Create your own project? Look for another position, in my current or another employer?
I am thinking out loud here. It helps put things in perspective.
