On Visualization

As soon as photographers start writing about their black-and-white ambitions (as two we regularly cite have recently done), the specter* of Ansel Adams rises up shaking its head vigorously as the writers discuss "pre-visualization."

Welcoming the Week

We were amused by this welcome sign outside the Kaiser facility we visited last week. Partly because we only noticed it coming out of the building. And then because, in context, it seemed to be ineffective.

Saturday matinees long ago let us escape from the ordinary world to the island of the Swiss Family Robinson or the mutinous decks of the Bounty. Why not, we thought, escape the usual fare here with Saturday matinees of our favorite photography films?

We went to Mission Bay Thursday morning for a shingles booster shot. We know someone who had shingles and we don't want shingles. We can't remember another year when we had so many shots, unless it was at a bar.

The Fog as Prop

The summer fog may require a meditative mind to appreciate it but step just a little away from it and you can easily admire what it brings to the party. It draws attention while it obscures with a flirtation that's irresistible.

We don't have much occasion for it on "Photo Corners" but we have now and then had to represent elsewhere a keyboard glyph (like ⌃⌥⇧) to explain some process. Here we usually mention menu commands (or sometimes code) in navy blue Courier to avoid the confusion of using quotes.

As fate would have it, the suction hose on our six-year-old Miele C1 Classic vacuum snapped in two just as we were going over the big living room rug. Fortunately we have a wealth of medical supplies here, so we patched it with some Tegaderm (which is a marvelous cure for this sort of thing) and finished the job.
