w04p line- Best

This photo was taken at the MN Landscape Arboretum in Chaska
and is the ceiling of the shelter in the Japanese gardens. Being one of my favorite areas on the grounds, I have sat in the shelter many times to admire the gardens and view the waterfalls, but I must confess, it is the first time I really noticed the intricacy of the ceiling.
The line pattern radiating to the wooden circle is actually centered on the ceiling. This off center orientation was much more pleasing to my eye than the centered versions I also shot. Horizontal is much more flattering to this shot, since it is meant to depict a peaceful setting.I shot this from 3 other vantage points, with this version being free of distracting elements in the corners of the small shelter.
I used a 50 mm focal length, with an F stop of 3.5, with 1/180 shutter speed. The ISO of 200 was fine for outdoors in the afternoon since even though it was cloudy, the white snow made everything brighter than usual. This area would normally be very dark during other seasons because it is sheltered by trees.
It was a bit of a challenge to compose the picture in the frame, as I wanted to get the heavy timber in the frame to give it weight and balance. I tried not to get anything beyond the lower edge since that would have been distracting because it is all trees beyond and a partial wall below it.
The position of the camera was quite angled, making it hard to keep steady and horizontal. I'm glad it was a fast shutter speed so no tripod was needed. I did need to steady myself in the snow and keep my arms braced on my torso to remain as motion-free as possible while angling the camera upward. I used manual focus so that the wooden circle would be sharp, leaving the forground twigs a little out of focus at the far edge, I liked the effect since it looks like they fade into the distance, reaching to the other timber beyond what is in the frame.
What I like about this picture is that it is organic and abstract all at the same time. It is about lines, and texture both due to the lined matting on the ceiling and the decorative twigs. The matting and the bark are very textural, and the bamboo very smooth. But it is the lines that are the attraction here. It has a harmonious, geometric feel due to the lines radiating to the circle and being monochromatic in color. I'm sure it is the Zen feeling they were going for when it was desigend to enhance the garden experience.
While the patterend rug at my home, and tactile cactus at the Arboretum Conservatory were fun to compose and shoot, they were not as challenging as capturing this photo. Those were done with the tripod at very close range, with short depth of field with autofocus, while this one required a steady hand and more thought about the composition and camera settings. I enjoy abstract art and symetry which I think is depicted here. I think it begs the question "what is that?"



that's what i say when bob pushes the button.

27 weeks, and 16 lbs later….
So far I am negative for gestational diabetes, and other basic blood work is good.
Bob and I are doing cloth diapers but will have seventh generation on hand in the beginning. I registered at wildflowerdiapers for the cloth diapers and we started to register at babiesrus. We spent hours in babies r us on Sunday and I thought we got all the big stuff done and some of the smaller things but of course we got home and realized we missed a bunch.
I doubt people will order diapers on line for me but I really hope they do because cloth diapers are a big expense in the beginning but save money in the long run. He’ll have to be in regular diapers for daycare though… ick… ick… ick… He may have to be in regular diapers until the umbilical cord is removed too because I hear the diapers I am getting are too high and may irritate.
I picked the colors for nursery. It will be a gorgeous blue with yellow trim. The rug that is in there now will come up and Bob will put down hardwood so we will need an area rug.
I am definitely not vaccinating for much of anything and not until Dylan needs to go to daycare which the way things are going will most likely be at 3 months. I feel sick to my stomach just typing that.
I am definitely making his baby food when the time comes. I can just have a food making day and cook/prepare Nash and Dylan’s food. I just can’t justify feeding Dylan food out of a jar that has a shelf life. It isn’t fresh at all.
I had a buyer for my house but I would have had to take a loss and would have owed 1700.00 at closing so I declined the offer but now wish I hadn’t. I need to get out of my house!!! Every month with it is about 2 months earlier that Dylan will have to go to daycare and if I do not sell it, he will be in daycare at 6 weeks! I made poster of my house and put a big SOLD across them and that is my new vision. I have one at work, one on my frig, and one in my bedroom. I will get an offer by Friday!

So that is my update.

I can not wait for the long weekend!!! I think I am finally getting the nesting instinct because all I want to do is get the house ready, so that is what Bob and I are doing this weekend. Not sure if he knows that or not but he should because of my slight nagging….

Davenport beach twilight

Davenport beach twilight

The eternal
If man builds a tower, a temple, a tenement, he looks upon it new and says, "Here stands my monument for all to see. Let it be an image of our vision for all time." And though the best designed, the sturdiest built and the most carefully preserved may last for ages upon ages to inspire younger generations to even greater heights, eventually the crush of eons will make grist of all. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Wild places show no scars from the ages they have known; the glacier, the rockfall and the wind leave only birthmarks upon their substrate. Every day the coast and the ocean crash into one another and are born anew. The decay of the edifice is told by the bending of the line, the marring of the surface; rock and sand have no smooth surface, no straight line to bend or break, they are eternal. This agelessness is the backdrop upon which our own senescence is projected.
I headed south to the California coast just outside of Santa Cruz some weeks back to soak in some of the immortality of the wild and rugged Pacific and to get soaked in some of its chilly brine. In years of making landscape photographs, I've tried to learn to make successful photographs regardless of whether the light lines up with my expectations. It being Fogust, no sunset was to be had, but instead a thick marine layer and a deep blue twilight. It should be noted that whereas a clear sunrise and sunset may not often be had, blue hour rolls in on time come rain or shine. Deep fog and thick clouds only serve to deepen the blues further.
I passed a growing party of beach goers, huddled around a campfire, boombox and tiki torches, and stepped out onto the rock where sea meets shore. A chill was in the air and more than once did I have to hold my tripod and camera above my head to avoid catastrophe. The sea was wroth and in foam wrote its fury upon the long, wide rock lip of California. White-knuckled, the waves clawed deep groves into gray stone as twenty-foot swells battered the stacks and the thickest tufts of the marine layer moved onshore for the night. The last glow of daylight faded and cold air rushed in from the California current while I made one or two long exposures; the tide was coming in and the larger swells made thunderous reports as they pounded the seacliffs. Chilled, soaked from the waste down and out of twilight, I headed past the growing bacchanalia and up the hill, homeward bound.

The Tank

The Tank

The Canon T90 was launched in 1986. It was an extraordinary camera, possibly the best manual focus SLR camera ever made. Certainly, it was Canon’s finest hour in the pre-autofocus era. The body was designed by German industrial designer Luigi Colani, who is famed for his rounded, “organic” designs.

Ergonomically, the camera was beautifully balanced and incredibly comfortable to hold. It is the ancestor of the modern EOS body design that you see in cameras such as the 5D mk2 which was used to take this photograph. The T90 was rugged, incorporated three motor systems, had a built-in 5fps winder (!), used 4 easy to find AA batteries and had an extremely sophisticated metering system (even by today’s standards) which included a multi-spot metering mode. Its dedicated flashgun was also a fantastic piece of engineering. The T90 was dubbed “The Tank” by the Japanese press because of its ruggedness.

Sadly, the T90 was born at the wrong time, just at the dawn of the auto-focus era. Within 2 years, it was superseded by the Canon 650, the company’s first proper auto-focus camera (not counting the clunky T80 which was launched in 1985).

When I was a student, I could not afford the T90 and settled for its cheaper brother, the T70. Many years later, I was able to buy this beautiful camera from a camera fair... it works perfectly and takes great pictures.

Carpet Hastings

carpet hastings

  • the decisive battle in which William the Conqueror (duke of Normandy) defeated the Saxons under Harold II (1066) and thus left England open for the Norman Conquest

  • a town in East Sussex just to the south of the place where the battle of Hastings took place

  • A city in southern Nebraska, directly south of Grand Island; pop. 24,064

  • United States architect who formed and important architectural firm with John Merven Carrere (1860-1929)

  • form a carpet-like cover (over)

  • cover completely, as if with a carpet; "flowers carpeted the meadows"

  • A large rug, typically an oriental one

  • A thick or soft expanse or layer of something

  • A floor or stair covering made from thick woven fabric, typically shaped to fit a particular room

  • rug: floor covering consisting of a piece of thick heavy fabric (usually with nap or pile)



Of course, the finished image is quite digital; however, it was made from images from around 1895 through 1910.

Images were taken from glass plates in my collection made by a California Photographer named Oliver C. Clarke, about whom I can find no information. Scanned on Epson 1640 with transparency adapter, unless I scanned them on a brontisaurial Howtek Scanmaster 3+. Can't remember. The image of the Bayeaux Tapestry was from the 1910 Encyclopedaea Britanica.

I feel compelled to point out that the term "predigital" is somewhat limited, in that the Bayeaux Tapestry, like all woven articles(such as oriental carpets) are truly digital in a broader sense. The Jacquard Loom, in fact, was operated by a system of cards, very much like the computer punch cards they used in the 1960's. Since the earliest examples we have of woven textiles are about 3500 years old, there really doesn't exist much in the way of "predigital" unless we limit the discussion to present day digital -- which, I am sure, is the intent. I just find this stuff fascinating, and I always hope somebody else will too.

Boardwalk reconstruction

Boardwalk reconstruction

I've been looking at the removal of the existing boardwalk in the area of the prior main boardwalk shops. There's a sign up on the fencing that describes something of what's supposed to happen. The reconstruction doesn't match the existing structure but is a more modern and hopefully more durable approach. The nearby boardwalk pier is also being rebuilt in the same new method and it's further along in the conversion and so gives something of better view of the reality that the sign describes.

From the "Schematic Drawing" on the sign:

The labels from the "Schematic Drawing"

- Railings

- Pre-Cast Concrete Hollow Slab Unit

- Timber or Synthetic Decking Layout to Match Existing Timber Boardwalk Decking

- Existing Concrete Pier Cap

- Existing Concrete/Timber Piles

I took a look at the new planking that's being used. To my thoroughly untrained eye the "wood" looks like some sort of glued sawdust composite. I guess that somehow means "new, sustainably-harvested wood decking." It also has a plastic coating with a wood grain like pattern on one side - the exposed, top side. From a distance it doesn't look too bad but close up the plastic quality is obvious. Not a big deal, at least not to me, in that regard. My childhood memory of the boardwalk always involved splinters in bare feet so that bad dream won't be a problem. That is, unless the plastic shreds and generates paper cut like plastic slices.

That's a durability issue. How well does this stuff wear? Will the sun, year round weather, and heavy foot traffic rapidly deteriorate the material? Only time will tell. I hope this has all been verifiably tested and guaranteed.

Another concern is fire. Boardwalk fires are common. How resistant to fire is this new material, including the under board padding?

From the looks of how the boards are laid out and the underlying layers, I wonder how it will drain in the rain. There are pre-set gaps in the wood but the layer below - the black padding material that seems to serve the same purpose as carpet under padding - doesn't seem to allow for drainage. Maybe if the boardwalk is sloped rain water can drain quickly, but I don't get the sense that the boardwalk is designed that way. Then again, the boardwalk doesn't get much use in the rain.

Snow on plastic suggests treacherous winter walks. Think of those cheap plastic toboggan like toys. It depends on the plastic, its texture and how it wears.

In the "Schematic Drawing" description there's the quote:

"Timber or Synthetic Decking Layout to Match Existing Timber Boardwalk Decking"

Looking at what's happening at the pier, there's no attempt to match the existing board layout. That's probably not a big deal with the pier but the big part of the visual appeal of the main boardwalk is the pattern in the decking. Something along the lines of the Boston Celtics basketball parquet flooring. I'd hate to see that distinctive pattern replaced with a straight drab one.

19th November 2008

The plumber came to see to our mysterious leak... and it is just that, a complete mystery. He lifted the carpets and there was a puddle on the concrete floor, and our sofe, carpets, massive load of craft paper, CDs etc. etc. are all soaked - there was a massive amount of water - but we cannot work out why at all. He thought it was very unlikely that it was coming from below, phew. About a year ago we had a leak from above and we can only think that when we moved our furniture around a fortnight ago, that it came from there. But we have NO idea who, or how. Anyway, the water's gone now, he fixed a valve in the toilette, total cost = ?5. Thank God!

I took this shot of his tool box when he was upstairs. All in the name of PAD.
