Good & Bad

The good news is we made it out to Red Rock today. The bad news is that I rushed a bunch of photos in the rain and didn't use the tripod so I have a whole crop of not so good pictures. I was about to say the whole lot is a complete loss, but one is good enough to grace the heading of this site for a while.

Modern mythology

Jim Dalrymple comments on the Megapixel Myth joining the "Megahertz Myth" as technology folklore. As the article points out a four megapixel camera will produce 4 x 6-inch prints as well as five or seven megapixel cameras. As with purchasing faster computers consumers believe they are getting something for the extra megapixels - and they are - a need for more storage, slower downloads, more expensive memory cards. Unfortunately these are likely not what they want.

Winter in the Mohave

Taking a walk on Sunday I snapped a few pictures of Sandy Valley at sunset. Here's the start to 2005.

Image Surfing

In case folks are running out of time to do nothing here's an interesting way of taking a sort of global cross section of photography. Try doing a Google image search for something likeDSC_4321. It provides a cross section of many different types of photography and areas of interest. If there is nothing of interest then change the number and look again.

Smarty Jones

Preakness Notebook has a great picture of Smarty Jones. I really like the picture because it portrays the horse as a fun-loving comic figure. Smarty Jones' owners and trainers are hopeful that he will go on to become the only undefeated Preakness winner since Seattle Slew in 1977 and looking further ahead possibly the next Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
