Sadly, I have turned on comment moderation. I escaped the spammers for several years, but alas that innocent time is past. I refuse to put on word verification - I have so much trouble with it that I definitely restrict my commenting because of it. Sorry for the hassle and thanks for visiting!
A viola player by the tug of my heart, sidetracked by a career in technology. My favourite programming language is solder, and I'm a ham radio operator because it's an excuse to build lots of strange stuff.
I started a photo blog because of the beauty I first saw in Eric Tenin's Paris Daily Photo. Through him, I discovered the City Daily Photo ring, and I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm not as dedicated as he is though, so I do miss some days.
Ice on one of those decorative little trees one finds planted in corporate parking lots. I parked the car close enough to frame the shot and planted the camera firmly on the roof of the car to steady it. It took a couple of tries to get the one I wanted, a bit of adjustment of the manual settings. The flash was a different sort of shot altogether, too hard for my tastes, so I went with the available light instead. I probably would have taken the same dozen shots with my film camera but it's so much easier with electrons!
