After spending much time post editing, and in the process discovering how much I like Lightroom 3 (beta 2) over Aperture 3, I’ve finally posted the photographs. Clicking on a banner will show the photoset:
India was a great experience and I’m very appreciative of how kind Tina’s family was and how welcome they made us feel. Getting to see and be a part of the wedding was an experience I will not forget.
I found this after finding Thomas Lee’s photograph. Lots of movement from the DSLR being carried around, in/out of focus, and deliberate rack focuses give a great raw feel.

Thomas Lee has an interesting gallery The Olympic Eyes showing security cameras and security watching over the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
For the Olympics, Beijing has installed some 300,000 closed circuit cameras and spent $12-billion on related security. There were reportedly 100,000 policemen on Olympics duty, excluding volunteers and civilian recruits. The watch was a spectacle in itself.
All the security and surveillance upgrades have stayed after the Olympics, and the homeland security boom is spreading to other 660 designated “safe cities” across China. Many human rights groups have pointed out that the technology will be — and has been — directed at protests and dissenters.

Quicksilver is one of my favorite and most used apps on the Mac. Nicholas Jitkoff covers some of the more interesting Quicksilver features than the basic launcher I’ve been using it for.
Involved people make for better innovation… Involved people can be quiet, loud, or anything in-between—what they have in common is a restless, probing nature: “I want to get to the problem. There’s something I want to do.” If you had thermal glasses, you could see heat coming off them.
The first step in achieving the impossible is believing that the impossible can be achieved. … “You don’t play it safe—you do something that scares you, that’s at the edge of your capabilities, where you might fail. That’s what gets you up in the morning.”
I want to play ball with my kids before I get too old, and before that happens I need to get laid, and before that happens I need to be in love, and I don’t want to hear edddon’tknow I can’t help eddon’tknow. No, No I’m a catch and I’m not going to be the one that got away.
There’s nobody I hate enough to write her name on this card.
I was going to put in the time and get a forked ruby out to fill in some feature gaps, but the maker of tender love beat me to it.
Brobinus adds some much needed features like Object#tase! and brobinius –screencast my_code.rb for youtube integration. link
