Photo Credits

My favorite part about allowing blogs to use my photographs with attribution is when they inevitably skip the part where I request for my name to be linked to my website in the attribution. Its like if they actually offered payment, and then handed over Monopoly money.


Cloves

So about the cloves label in this magnetic spice tin set I bought...

Olympus Stylus Epic Limited, Then and Now

Great moments in clairvoyance.

Olympus Stylus Epic, 2009

"How much are they worth? Will the value ever rise?"
"No!"

Road Construction

Third day in a row that my commute took five minutes longer because I forgot about the road construction on my usual route. But I think that instead of blaming myself for not remembering to find an alternate route, it would be best if I went on Facebook to yell about how incompetent MNDOT is in that they can't somehow figure out how to plan the construction without affecting MY commute.


Great Moments In Selling Photographic Paper on Ebay

Some missing, and some with color damage, but most are in great condition. Total of 80; 68 are good and 12 have damage

Glass Hasselblad

"Is that a ..." (wait for it) "... Glasselblad?" #portmanteau #hasselblad

Slow Close Toilet Seats

The worst part about buying a slow close toilet seat? The ringing in your ears caused by the slamming sound made when you instinctively use the same force to close a non-slow closing seat in a different bathroom.


Photosig

I think it is time for a gritty reboot of photosig.com


Gigs

"I really like this series of twenty images that you edited from hundred of hours of shooting. Think you could do our three hour event in the same style and deliver about two hundred images from it for us?"

The gist of every photo gig I get offered.


Who else lives in constant fear of accidentally starting their music at work without their headphones plugged into the device?


Naked Bear

I just searched "Naked Bear" at work looking for an image of a literal bear with no fur.
You can guess how quick the results tab had to be closed.


Photographic Waiting Period

A long time ago I also thought it would be an interesting discipline to force myself to make everything I post on my website to have aged 5+ years. Though back then I didn't have a large enough backlog of work to pull this off without waiting forever.

I think it around March 2010 was when I switched from shooting Black & white film to color for my day to day random photographing. I have minimal interest in revisiting my old black & white stuff, but now I'm sitting on a sizeable backlog of color and wondering if I should enact the plan?


Angry Twitter

I love "TWITTER IS ANGRY" round up drama posts where every angry tweet featured only has two likes.


Space Pizzas

I had a dream last night that SpaceX tech had gotten far enough that I could use reusable rockets for pizza delivery. Shoot an uncooked pizza into space, and then the reentry vessel would detach and use the heat from reentry to cook the pizza. Hot and fresh pizza then lands on the customer's doorstep.


I just loaded a roll of film onto a development reel while I had food cooking. #photoyolo


Batteries

I think that the "I can't use a camera that relies on batteries" rhetoric is my new favorite shit that analog photographers say.


Duluth Water

I had a dream last night where I kept drinking this really great tasting water. Couldn't get enough of it. Just chugging glass after glass of this water.

Then I woke up and realized I was in Duluth, and that meant that this great water from my dreams was available right around the corner from the bathroom sink. Got up and made the dream come true.


Selling Antique Cameras

Antique stores that keep their cameras for sale in a locked cabinet, with the camera case closed, and with the label tag not visible deserve to go under.


Typical Critiques

How is this photo worth $2,000,000? Subject is just standing there. My kid could take the same pic. #smh https://petapixel.com/2018/03/20/10-ebay-photo-turns-out-to-be-outlaw-portrait-valued-at-2000000/


Making Money From Photography

I really love it when people assume I make money off of photography.
