You are now famous

Por la autora de El murmullo de las abejas,una historia desgarradora e inolvidable

Hi Clyde,

You are now famous ... in Mexico.  The picture I took of you got in the cover of the new book by Sofia Segovia, famous novelist in the Spanish speaking world.

Thanks for letting me take your photo and letting me use it.

Sexy Revolver Got Critiqued

Sexy revolver taken with the Lensbaby Edge 50 on loan.

My revolver photo got featured in Bryan Peterson's website.  Whoo-hoo!

Critique of revolver image starts at 11:52.


Humanities class teaches that curves are passive while straight lines are aggressive.  Hence curves in images are usually rendered softly and straight lines are usually rendered sharply.  What do you get when you have both?  One conflicting sexy subject.

Perhaps, it is a controversial image.  It was one of the photos I submitted to Lensbaby when they asked me if I would be interested in using their lens for their website.  None of the photos I submitted were accepted.  Oh well.  But I think it's their loss.

Tower of London

The first great hotel for celebrities shot on iPhone 6.

The castle was used as a prison for celebrities who were considered persons of interest.  Many figures who had fallen into disgrace, such as Elizabeth I before she became queen, and Sir Walter Raleigh (inventor of the cigarettes),  were held within its walls. This use has led to the phrase "sent to the Tower". Despite its enduring reputation as a place of torture and death, popularised by 16th-century religious propagandists and 19th-century writers, only seven people were executed within the Tower before the World Wars of the 20th century.  Among those held and executed at the Tower were Anne Boleyn, Ozzy Osbourne and Geico Gecko.

Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan shot on iPhone 6.
Eilean Donan (Island of DonnĂ¡n) is a small tidal island. It truly is an island in a sense that the castle sits on thrrrree lochs (or lakes), Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the westerrrn Highlands of Scotland. 

The castle was founded in the thirrrrteenth century, and became a strrrronghold of the Clan Mackenzie and theirrrr allies the Clan Macrae, a staunch supporrrterrrr of the Jacobites. Those of you who arrrre big fans of the TV series The Outlanders arrrre well familiarrrrr with the Jacobites.

21st Century Man

Where do we go from here.

He will have no eyes because there is nothing to see.

He will have ears but they are there just for aesthetics.  He can only hear what he wants to hear.

He will have no sense of the future that holds for him because the now is all that matters.

His fashion sense will be dictated by corporate greed.

He will live his life but it will be meaningless.  Still, he would not even know it is meaningless.

His opinion is dictated by what others like him think of.  Mainly, apathy.

He will not be able to survive a day without wifi, Netflix and Siri.
