My flickr contact and fellow Nutmegger criana used her point and shoot Canon SD550 to make a series of short videos and cut them together making a day in the life video. I love it for its informality and the candid window into her world.
Warren, Connecticut. As the temperature drops the songbirds on our feeders eat more and the more they eat the more often I have to fill the feeders. My wife thinks the birds put hobo signs on our house: "humans keep feeders full here, empty fast for fresh seed."
Call me unworldly but I continue to get a charge out of contemporary views of different places in the world. I’m not talking National Geographic or professional photojournalism here, just great shots taken by a variety of people.
I can see a future where universal geotagging will links these views up with maps so we’ll be able to move back and forth easily and seamlessly between the photograph and a map and maybe there’ll be even more channels of information to give even more context to each picture.
Andrew Sullivan has written a great pice for The Atlantic: Why I Blog.
Sullivan’s blog: The Daily Dish has become quite popular and not just because he’s a conservative for Obama, also because he’s smart and articulate.
The radio show OnPoint is doing a piece right now called Can Bloggers Save Journalism? which is fascinating. I recommend listening to this show, either through the link at the top of that page when the show is over in 10 minutes, or, through the iTunes Music Store.
The Big Picture: Storm-battered Yemen.
Absolutely incredible photography of one of the poorest countries in the world that just got wiped out by heavy storms. The architecture is wonderful, what a shame it’s been battered so badly.
This is fantastic. What a process.
The dread error 99 can appear on Canon DSLR bodies for any number of reasons and when it does, you’re out of business until you fix the problem (clean lens contacts, charge battery, etc.).
My guess is that on newer bodies there are an increasing number of backward compatibility issues with older lenses. Those can be fixed with a firmware update.
