I saw this car in the Fred Meyer parking lot this morning. The chauffeur probably ran in to get some milk or bones. Or both.

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.

I was in the St. Johns neighborhood last night. Took these two shots of the St. Johns Cinema with my phone. The composition is good. Not keen on the auto-exposure settings the phone chose.

I was at a tech conference on Tuesday. All of the vendors had their usual swag. All tech related, of course. Except one. Look what gave me! An acknowledgement that tech folks are more than just left-brained logicians.

The girls at the local coffee shop were in awe of my mamiya C220. I handed it over to them so they could look down the viewfinder and their eyes lite up. Their reactions put a smile on my face. I have a love hate for moments like this. On the one hand people are immediately amazed at such a device but I hate that these great cameras are treated as relics of a time forgotten. In 2018 this camera is still doing what it did close to 50 years ago, can't say that about my cell phone. #filmphotography

I'm now on ! Find me here:

To start, anyway, I'll probably be duplicating content between there and here. I'd like them to ultimately diverge and use the two services differently. I've never been on , so I don't know how/if people use that service differently from .

How are you folks using Instagram (or PixelFed) differently from Mastodon?

If you ever get the chance, be sure to watch the Orson Welles version of Franz Kafka's The Trial, released in 1962. It's better than Citizen Kane. It also has the best cinematography (by Edmond Richard) I've ever seen in a film.

Hey #photographers! Want to try a #raw developer that doesn't conform to the status quo? Filmulator emulates the way #analog #film is developed! The number of sliders are minimal, but the results do not disappoint.

And now, a moment of zen. (animals: goat, capybara, background-human)

We all need a free alternative to YouTube!

PeerTube is a decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software.

PeerTube is currently in beta version, that's why @Framasoft needs your help to pave the road to version 1.0!

True story. Today, a doctor told me: "Your problem is that you focus too much on the negative."

I said: "I shoot film. I HAVE to focus on the negative!"

Never feed me a straight line.

@Curator I was looking at joinmastodon.org/ . I didn't see Mastodon.art in the list of instances that people could select from. At the very least, we should show up when the user chooses Artist.
