Another thing worth checking out, for those that are into the various photography memes that are out there, is the Skyline Project (via the photoblogs.org blog ). Stu Savory initiated the project; he describes it thusly:
... [W]e could start a new blog meme, showing each other our respective skylines. If you think the view out front is not so great, you can show us the back yard view instead if you prefer. Let's all join in and share our area's skylines; I know that several of you live in really beautiful places (specifically : Doug Alder, Joel Sax, Frank Paynter, Yule Heibel to name but four). Just grab that digicam & snap away.
It's worth a shot. My skyline, unfortunately, is blocked by trees (except in the winter, of course, when I can see across the streams and fields that run between my house and a nearby park). However, nearby, the skyline looks out at Manhattan and is spectacular at night.
As this post indicates, I'm trying to bring back Picture Envy. It's a good break from working on my photography; this is particularly needed when I'm on trial, as I am now. Plus, I have been saving up links for a while. I'll post more photos once I have a chance to scan in some shots.
My last image for Picture Envy comes from Brandon Stone, who is the founder of photoblogs.org, I believe. Stone's Veterans of Foreign Wars has a great old school feel to it. Plus, there's a smirking, somewhat peurile pun in there.
Have a good one. I'm going to get back to working on my car (just installed satellite radio; quite a worthwhile investment) and, if the weather cooperates, a short hike on the Appalachian Trail.
More nonsense that would come as a surprise to no one who knew me:
T.S.Eliot: The Wasteland. You are a desperate cry
to God, moulded in intricate word-craftmanship.
Your language is controlled, but inside, you
feel empty and are not content with your life.
You see both the world and your inner self as a
waste land: nothing good can come out of it
anyway. People find you difficult to understand
but admire you nevertheless.
