Edible perhaps, but not particularly tasty. The icing dries harder than cement, and the dough is anything but scrumptious.
Still, it’s a fun tradition that brings us all together. This year three couples made three quite distinct houses.

Naturally, I brought my camera along. Our more touristy adventures included The Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon.

It was an interesting trip. Read all about it.
Take a look here.
My love of landscape photography meshes well with panoramic shots. Often I wish there was a lens wide enough to capture the totality of a stunning vista.
Thankfully, through Photoshop there’s away to capture it all.
Check out a few examples.

The difficult 7 mile hike did not disappoint. Afterwards we ate (a lot) at Chilis.
Leave it to city dwellers to celebrate the best of rural and suburban America in one weekend day.
I also snapped some various water lilies.
I’m a big fan of time lapse photography. It shows us a world video or cinema photography cannot. It also takes time and compresses it into a manageable, digestible chunk.
But being a good photographer takes skills beyond the camera, which Max Wilson goes into great detail about.

Pretty impressive stuff. “Vegas level…” according to description on the webpage.
I suppose it is possible with a fast enough processor. Though, when something looks too good to be true …
On the other hand, how impressive is the video quality of the iPhone when shot in broad daylight!?
I’m guessing the warranty didn’t anticipate this from happening …
From Petapixel’s website:
Atlanta-based photographer Ed Hetherington makes a living photographing weddings, but earlier this month he traveled to Zimbabwe for a wildlife photography adventure. While there, he had a unique experience he won’t soon forget: a lion stole his camera.
Basic show information is also recorded.
The orange highlight means some type of error made it to air.
I find it curious I never visited the park when I actually lived in Raleigh. For five years, I just ignored it.
Now equipped with my camera, I can finally see this place. In fact, this is a reoccurring theme: My camera helps me see what has always been.
That is, perhaps, a great power of still photography.
This spring was particularly long and beautiful. The cool weather lasted as long as it possibly could.
Soon the City will slow and empty for the two, long summer months; the hum of A.C. units fills the streets.
Summer in New York is a unique time, an unmistakeable mix of heat, sex, and humanity that contrasts with a slower, more deliberate pace.
For our anniversary I got her a trip abroad a sail boat the trips around the Manhattan harbor.
So before our world up-ends, I thought it would be cool to take a few pictures of the old set and crew.
The T.V. business is a vicious and ever changing organism. For all the imagery we record daily, only still photography captures things and hold them in place.
I think not, and discuss it in this month’s LD On The DL.

- Check out Vivid Lights in Sydney, which goes through June 10th. Some really beautiful images.
Sydney buildings have been transformed into a kaleidescope of colour as Vivid Lights turns old facades into artistic canvases. In this video we present Vivid in a minute - a bite sized tour of the light installations that will run until Monday 10 June, scattered through Circular Quay, the Opera House, Walsh Bay, Darling Harbour and The Rocks.
Here’s a video about it:
Good to be home.
It’s mainly for use with a crop sensor camera, but still the technological innovation is quite amazing. This lens offers a full stop of light more than its competitors.
Can’t wait to try it! Go Sigma!
Watch the time lapse of the Ultra Music Festival Carl Cox mega structure being built. The stage was designed by Stephen Lieberman of SJ Lighting, with production by AG Light and Sound.
Years ago I found these pictures of my first lighting design (at Leesville Road High School) in either 1996 or 1997. The show is called Pvt. Wars, a sardonic look at the human costs of war.
Sadly, I don’t remember who the cast is anymore.
Not ultra-sophisticated … in either a design or photography perspective. Fortunately, I’ve improved a lot since then.
At least I like to think so.
My original piece regarding my discomfort surrounding internship programs is here.
I think we ultimately have a supply versus demand problem. There’s a glut of supply clumping up at the bottom because upward mobility is extremely difficult. Those slots are taken, and the people occupying them aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
When supply and demand become unbalanced, workers lose. A confluence of factors means younger workers are hit especially hard.
Do what out for falling objects from the grid …
