I wouldn’t ordinarily use this as a space for pimping products, but on this rare occasion, I must digress. The CableBox by bluelounge is one of those incredibly simple yet incredibly useful products that absolutely delivers on premise. In this case the premise is simple: “space is gained.” Their separate product the CableDrop performs admirably […]
Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission. More info here. […]
RR 2009 desktop background available here. 36 birds straight to the dome.
Call this an expansion of the painted sky theory espoused previously. This one is from Central Florida, and taken at the appropriate hour. There is simply no cloud that looks like this hovering over any part of NYC or the boroughs. Oh, and I can’t get enough of shooting things on this floor apparently.
This Summer, in spite of living in a new (to me) and very picturesque city, I’ve started to fearlessly explore a technique of photography I like to call “objects sitting atop handwritten notes scribbled on the New York Times.” So far, so good.

Regular readers of the Dot Com may be perplexed, disturbed even, but these images are real. Do not [attempt to] adjust your television sets. The above text was originally intended to accompany photos of a great meal that I cooked, but the pictures didn’t come out as good as the food. So here are some […]
Though I’m not sure if I’ll ever eat there, the Ninja Restaurant and Sushi Bar might be my favorite restaurant and sushi bar in New Orleans. It certainly has the best name and sign combination imaginable. And while I’m back up to my old tricks again photo-wise, it’s nice to be reminded that the folks […]
For as much time as I have spent waxing on about flat, graphic compositions, vast depth is also deeply compelling. The thought crossed my mind as I flew home last weekend that sunset, as seen from above the clouds, will make a pious man out of a sinner — at least for the duration of […]
re: writing. On another tack: a wide angle lens can overly dramatize a photograph. Sometimes the effect is desirable; often it is distracting. In the second version of the shot, I backed up and zoomed in a little resulting in a more classical composition — straighter lines on the extreme edges of the frame. Which […]
Every so often the idea of design hits me in the chest like a medicine ball. The idea that every man-made thing we see — from the hinges on a van to the metal lining on a curb — was designed and built by someone to serve a specific purpose is confounding in its size. […]
