Honk!

I had a great time at last year's Honk! Festival, which was the first time in years I went to something with the specific intent of taking pictures. I had such a good time I made a point of doing the same this year. I still need to post some of my pictures from last year, but to defeat my inner procrastinator, I figured the best thing was to post some of this year's today.

When I learned photography, I was poor and film was expensive — so I took few but carefully planned photos. It's been a tough habit to shake, but I think I'm there: Until today, in the 30 months I've owned my digital SLR I had taken only 1878 pictures. Today I took 498 more. Only nine of which are behind the cut )

Wow

The gigapixel project is not, as you might expect (at least if you're a computer geek like me) about the creation of gigantic flat screen display or a digital camera the size of a truck. It is an effort by some very hardcore film photographers to explore the limits of their medium. And they have achieved some truly stunning results. You may want to start with a brief and accessible overview of the project, or just go straight to some of the pictures, such as this picture of Brodie Ghost Town.

I just stumbled upon the Pclix, which appears to be an amazingly useful camera accessory. I'm not going to bother explaining it; the site does a fine job, or you may want to look at the page that pointed me to it, which has a testimonial from a very happy user.
