Bought a “walking around” camera, for travel or those occasions when it may not be safe to pack the full kit (because I sometimes shoot in sketchy areas).

The Fujifilm X100s is a fixed lens APS-C camera that has some very interesting features that make it kind of an oddball. Built in ND filter and leaf shutter make for some interesting possibilities. It also has no optical low-pass filter, which makes for sharper images.

Used this camera, in conjunction with w a wireless radio trigger and a Canon 600-EX RT flash to shoot this photo of Alex D. blasting a nose-bone out of the flow bowl at Fremont Skatepark.

From the end spring new beginnings.
A sorrow’s crown of sorrow is remembering happier times.
People who drink to drown their sorrow should be told that sorrow knows how to swim.
I think loss of loved ones is the hardest blow in life.
Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.
I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.

Happy birthday to Gustav Klimt. Today we celebrate his special day with a painting he began in 1917, but was left unfinished by his sudden death in 1918. This masterful portraitist had an incredible impact on painting with his intimate depictions of women and remarkable detailing. Has anything unfinished ever looked so good?Now on view: “Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman),” 1917–18, by Gustav Klimt (On loan from The Lewis Collection)
