Canvas Photo Printing
One of my birthday presents today - 3 of my photos printed on 12x12" canvas ... very cool!
Links to each of the photos:
1 - Lake Ginninderra
2 - Grass
3 - Kambah
They came out pretty saturated in the prints and even more in this photo of them ... but that's what happens when you take a photo of a print of a photo :-)
"Getting a photo printed to canvas is the perfect solution because: It's classy, you don't need a frame, it's easy, and it's just plain fancy-looking!"

Digital Photo Magazine Gallery - January 2008
This is a scan of my photograph that was featured in this months' (January 2008) Digital Photo Gallery.
The text reads:
"This was taken at New Brighton on the Wirral and is a High Dynamic Range (HDR) composition. "I like to use HDR as a way of creating a unique image which really stands out", Steve told us. He took three seperate hand-held shots using the bracketed exposure settings on his Canon EOS 400D. "When I took the shot, there was a family walking across the scene so once I had created the single combined image using Photomatix Pro, I edited it in Photoshop and removed them using a combination of cloning and healing." The three original RAW images were loaded directly into Photomatix then the composition tone-mapped according to the final appearance. Curves, Levels and Sharpness were all boosted slightly in photoshop."

More Flickr Friend Dedications - The CSS Neuse for Doc (to Edit if he so Desires)
This is a continuation of last night's series of dedications to flickr friends who I thought of while shooting photos last week en route to and at Cape Lookout & Harkers Island.
Doc contacted me shortly after I joined flickr to say that he enjoyed my coastal Carolina and historical photos. He noted that we had a lot of the same interests. We have met twice during my visits to the Wilmington area.
Doc researches his photo subjects and provides interesting captions. He also is a gifted photo editor, and does amazing work with textures and processing.
The CSS Neuse in Kinston NC reminded me of the type of site that Doc likes to photograph.
This Civil War ironclad was built for the purpose of retaking New Bern NC. The wooden construction began in the fall of 1862 at White Hall, which is now Seven Springs, NC.
A flat bottom boat that resembled a barge, it was one of 22 ironclad ships commissioned by the Confederacy.
The still incomplete ship was launched and floated to Kinston in 1863 to be outfitted with its guns and armor.
The ship had a crew of 80 men. The crew camped on the river bank while the officers stayed at homes in Kinston. It was a citizens venture - built and manned by local residents.
The ship started downstream towards New Bern in 1864 in a failed battle to retake the city, but was stranded on a sand bar for a month due to the low river. Once the river rose it returned to Kinston.
With the Confederacy nearing its end in the spring of 1865, its captain ordered it sunk to prevent it from falling into Union hands.
The boat remained on the river bottom for almost a century. An effort to raise it was initiated by local citizens in 1961, but it was not successfully raised till 1963.
Unfortunately the ship's current storage in an open air enclosure is leading to rapid deterioration of this piece of history.
Funding problems have prevented construction of an enclosed, environmentally controlled building for its long term preservation.
This piece of history is at significant risk of loss. It has survived over 140 years, but it may not be around much longer.
I think Doc could work wonders with this photo. It he would like to download and play around with textures and edits, I would like to see the end results.
Rainy Night In ATL
This was taken with my new HTC Hero. It's one from Sprint and an Android phone. It has a 5mp camera. The very watered down version of PS (mobile) I downloaded is nothing compared to the iphone's version (it's so bad, I really don't know why I'm mentioning it). I had to process on my laptop in PS. Also, it does not handle bright lights (highlights) well. I haven't found a way to correct this...yet. But, I'll see what can be done over time.
If anyone has a 'droid phone that has a good photo editor, please, please, let me know about it!!!!

I saw the protos for sale on toywiz and I thought it would be worth picking up a couple. By the time I convinced my mom to let me order (I was pushing it because I had just ordered off of G.I. Brick) most of them were already sold out. So, I bought the two that I liked best of the ones that were still in stock at the time. Just before finishing my order, I remembered the proto giveaways so I gave it a shot and won! The SFLR is so cool! It's trans red/black/silver swirled. I will not the silver, as it is hard to see in the pic. Thank you Toywiz!
So I was really happy with what I got in the mail. I ordered 2 M16A1GL's which are pure win! Then, I knew I would get the derringer but I ended up getting a FREE Musket V2! So it was a great day for me :) Also I'm going to pick up 2 M16A1GL's with ACOG scope. Great use for modern combat.
In the meanwhile, I'll be playing GOW3. If you want to play with me, add me as a friend.

FLICKR INFRASTRUCTURE: Employee Amusement Center
Forward-thinking companies regard their employees as the company's greatest resource (or so we often hear). With Flickr, that philosophy is not only followed, but wallowed in. Case in point: this employee amusement center, located out West. This vast, well-equipped facility was located in an area that has consistently good weather. The warmth and sunshine enable Flickr to operate this facility 365 days a year. After intense weeks of service calls, replacing burned-out fuses, or chewing on pencils, Flickr's employees need a bit of rest and relaxation.
Employees enjoy themselves on all manner of amusement rides and arcade games ("Crush the Competition" is a favorite). Whether you enjoy water slides, spook houses, roller coasters, tossing rings onto soda pop bottles, or just having a picnic by the river, the park will satisfy you---assuming, of course, that you are an employee, approved vendor, or valid guest. Shown here is the latest facility improvement: Wild West Ranch Village.
Reliable sources have revealed (in February 2009) that this facility is high on the list of institutions to receive "exceptional" support through the economic stimulus package being worked on in Washington, D.C. Injecting a wad of money into this park is not considered pork, but a wise investment in the future.
FLICKR INFRASTRUCTURE: mock-up of a new type of service vehicle
Service is what sells these days and Flickr prides itself on the level of service provided to subscribers. To get technicians to where the "challenges" (not "problems"!) are, a large fleet of stock and customized vehicles is available at all hours of the day. Reaching subscribers in the wide-open spaces of the West is especially challenging.
This mock-up (located at a Flickr Developmental Laboratory in Northwestern Utah, reveals at least two clever applications of low-tech systems and equipment. The first one is a new, simplified, style of air-conditioning: the placement of air ports (colorful circles) in a random pattern on the side and roof panels. It is vital to keep service personnel and sensitive equipment cool in the blazing heat of the desert. The second example of forward thinking is a modest but functional bed to be used by tired employees who must take a short nap to recuperate from the stress of 24-hour service activity.
The tailgate will see double duty: a working surface (mini-workbench) and party area (even nerds must unwind on occasion). The front end is still in the planning stage.
The two posts are part of a laser-powered alignnment system.

Nathan Albert Corbin
Co. K, 45th ILL. Infantry
From Kansas and Kansans:
Nathan A. Corbin, president of the Bank of Blue Mound, at Blue Mound, Kan., claims New England as his nativity, having been born at Woodstock, Conn., Jan. 7, 1843. His parents, Nathan and Anna (Sumner) Corbin, were also natives of New England and both the descendants of English families established there in Colonial days. Nathan Corbin, the father, died when his son Nathan A. was but an infant six weeks old. The mother, accompanied by her four sons, came to Kansas in 1857, making the journey from Connecticut to Jefferson, Mo., by railroad and from thence to Kansas City by boat up the Missouri river. From Kansas City they drove to their destination, a point about five miles northwest of Mound City, which did not exist at that time, however, and there preempted a quarter section of land at a cost of about $250. The four sons who accompanied their mother to Kansas were Myron M., who served the Union cause during the Civil as a member of the Twelfth Kansas infantry; he died at Lawrence in 1900; Jesse S., deceased; Byron B., a hardware merchant at Mound City; and Nathan A. Mr. Corbin's mother and brother Jesse S. were accidentally poisoned in 1872 by eating canned cherries that had become poisonous through contact with lead in the inner side of the can, and the unfortunate accident resulted in their deaths. The family, upon coming to Kansas, had located in the midst of the border troubles incident to the period, just preceding and during the Civil war, and though our subject was too young to participate in the earlier part of that strife, he well remembers many of the stirring events that took place at that time. The older brothers, however, took an active part in the border warfare, and John Brown was a well known and frequent visitor at the Corbin home. Mr. Corbin remained on the home farm until 1861, when he went to Galesburg, Ill., to attend college. Instead of entering the college, however, he enlisted in August, 1861, in Company K, Forty-fifth Illinois infantry. On Jan. 12, 1862, the regiment left Camp Douglas, Chicago, for Cairo, where it went into camp until Feb. 1, when it was assigned to the Second brigade, First division, and the next day left Cairo with General Grant's army for the Tennessee river. The regiment received its "baptism of fire" at Fort Donelson and bore its full share in the three days' fight. It went into the fight at Shiloh with about 500 men and was in the front line from first to last of the two days' battle. This regiment participated in all the battles of the Vicksburg campaign, forming a part of General Logan's division, it took part in three charges against the Confederate works in May and June, and the regimental flag of the Forty-fifth was the first flag to be raised in Vicksburg. The regiment was on provost guard duty in Vicksburg, from July 4 until Oct. 14, 1863, and was then relieved to take part in the "Canton raid." From Feb. 3 to March 4, 1864, it took part in the "Meridian raid." Beginning on June 7 it took its share in the Atlanta campaign, before and after the fall of Atlanta, until the beginning of the march to the sea, in which it also joined. it participated in the Carolina campaign and passed on to Richmond, After Lee's surrender the Forty-fifth participated in the Grand Review at Washington, D. C. They were mustered out of the service July 12, 1865, Mr. Corbin receiving his pay at Springfield, Ill. Mr. Corbin joined the regiment at Jackson, Tenn., and was constantly with it from that time until the close of the war.
He then returned to the old homestead in Linn county, Kansas. On March 7, 1866, he came to the present site of Blue Mound, and bought 200 acres of land which comprise part of his present homestead, for he has added to his original purchase until he now has 840 acres of fine land, all in one body, 700 acres of which can be viewed from the eminence on which is built his fine modern residence. The land adjoins Blue Mound on the north. Mr. Corbin has one of the finest farms in Eastern Kansas and is also extensively engaged in stock raising. The vista of his farm itself presents evidence that the fields are tilled according to modern agricultural methods and the handsome residence and commodious and well-equipped farm buildings, are all conclusive evidence of the prevailing thrift and prosperity of its owner. When Mr. Corbin located there, however, there were but seven settlers in the township and it was not until 1883 that the town site company, of which Mr. Corbin was a member, was formed. The same careful but progressive methods used in the management of his farm have also characterized his career as a banker. He has been interested in the Bank of Blue Mound about twenty years and has been its president fifteen years, during which time it has been very successful.
Mr. Corbin has been twice married. His first wife was Miss Mary E. Robinson, to whom he was united July 18, 1
From its small, tentative beginnings in April 2006, the Fray Bentos Photostream has grown into that repository of truth, wisdom, obscurantism and ossified prejudice which the world knows and loves. I flatter myself that the mixture is one that will not be found elsewhere on the Web.
I think I discovered Flickr when I idly searched on "Bristol" and was led to Flickr's Bristol group. "Ooh!" I thought, "I've got some stuff that could go on there". Not much more than a month after joining I finally found the "add to group" tab and was able to upload some photos. The rest is history. A troubled history, for there have been a number of crises along the way. After I had uploaded about 500 photographs I bought a new computer. It was immediately apparent that the monitor of the old one had been wrongly set up; what had looked right on the old one now looked pale and washed-out on the new ...and must always have looked so to others. I'd always wondered why everyone else's pictures looked too dark and I always had to brighten or gamma-correct my own to make them look right. This meant a crash replacement programme which, to date, has never been completed.
The next setback was the great "marked restricted" emergency of 2008, when Flickr restricted my entire photostream to those users who have set their preferences to "see all content". This was done, presumably following a "report", because I had uploaded half a dozen drawings of the undraped figure. Note that the restriction had been applied to the entire stream, not just the offending material. Daily views dropped to a trickle and I had to go through everything to flag it in accordance with site guidelines ("breasts and bottoms, moderate, no frontal nudity, no pubic area") before applying to Flickr for a review of my account.
The purchase, at Christmas 2008, of a scanner which did negatives redoubled my interest and greatly improved the quality of the images. Until that time I had scanned from the poxy little 5?x3?" "enprints" you used to get from the local high street chemist. This was the form in which I had always known my older photographs. Hitherto I had assumed that their poor quality was attributable to my want of expertise or shortcomings in the camera. Now it became obvious that the fault was with the commercial processing available in those days. For the first time I saw the image that had always been present on the negative. In some cases the improvement was a revelation. Hundreds of pictures whose original prints I had discarded as not worth keeping, had not seen for decades or, in some cases, could not remember, were resurrected in all their sharp, correctly exposed beauty. I spent a year scanning my negatives ...I'd always kept them, praise the Lord... and a programme to replace the non-negative scans still present on Flickr is "ongoing".
Returning to my earliest posts the main surprise is that I gave only brief descriptions. But after a few weeks of "finding my feet" I got into my stride and the "mature photostream" was established. Since that time I have regarded the caption as of equal importance with the photograph. The effect I aim for is of a short discursive essay. In the age of dumbing down I hope I may claim, without immodesty, to have "clevered up" a little from the general standard of "user-generated" material found at photo-sharing and blog sites. Actually this isn't difficult.
Anyhow, I wouldn't bother to post this stuff if no one looked at it, and I am grateful to all who have contributed to the two million "aggregate views" so far accrued by these humble offerings. Especial gratitude is due to veteran commenters ...they know who they are... who, I feel, are due to a gold watch or a campaign medal or something, a certificate on vellum at least.

Popular Photography, August 1941
The August Cover
This month's cover illustration was reproduced from a Kodachrome transparency made by Andre de Dienes, professional photographer, New York City.
He took the picture with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Graflex camera and 8" Zeiss Tessar f 4.5 lens, and the exposure was 1/25 second at f16 on Daylight Type Kodachrome cut film.
After obtaining a bouquet of flowers, de Dienes arranged the attractive setup with the aid of two professional models. In addition to placing his subjects so as to obtain a pleasing composition, he used a high camera angle in order to take full advantage of the flowers as a colorful background pattern, and to eliminate the sky and horizon.

The History Of Photo Manipulation
Gettysburg Farm and Cornfield, Pennsylvania - 18x24 Digital Photo Painting: Gone to Look for America - Patrick Alan Swigart © 2007 USA
31 VIEW "LARGE" OR "ORIGINAL."
Found: World changing events with long-lasting effects can march right into your own back yard. Then and now.
I love this farm, but it is hard to imagine that peace-and-quiet turned upside down into a totally unbearable tumult that sets one to fleeing one's home for one's skin. Peace and quiet has once again become the order of the day, here, as you see. Civil War is a terrible thing and it occurs when people of the same nationality cease to be like-minded to an irreconcilable degree, cease speaking, and take actions intolerable to one another. This was our second Civil War. The Old Nation lost the first one to a New Nation that slipped through their fingers. The New Nation won the second one in order to not become a third Nation. Of course, I am speaking of the Revolutionary War as a civil war. A nation was split against itself. A new and more meaningful identity was created. To not see it as a Revolutionary War, however, is to not witness history. The second Civil War is the one we refer to as "The Civil War" and the conflict ended in an "undivided" and "indivisible" united nation. From here on "We the People" are bound and determined to solve our internal problems via our Constitutional channels and outlets.
We are at a point, now, where we are seeing a new development, however. Corporations (made up of boards, elected CEO's, other officers, and stockholders, (all of whom have limited liability) not only in one nation but in many nations are making decisions and influencing changes which to a large degree are taking place with disregard to borders, language, and culture (to use Michael Savage's favorite three national-defining criteria). A new morality is being brought into question. Is it right for corporations with the influence and power at or above the levels of nations to make world changing events with long-lasting effects not for the common welfare of citizens but for the unrelenting desire for growth and wealth of the corporate entity? Is profit alone a justifiable decision-making tool or has the goal replaced any concern for the means? Are we to lose Constitutional rights as citizens to the Corporational Rights of incorporated businesses and the increasingly small number of people in increasingly powerful positions who can make decisions without regard to allegiance to nationality? If so, we are on the verge of "something completely different" as Monte Python says it. And what do the common citizens have to worry about? The same old concern. It is no different than any other time in history. Tyranny is ever a threatening enemy. "Don't tread on me!" will be heard once again, and the constitution will be ammended in someway, I suppose. But will it be in the interest of "We the People" or will it be in the interest of "We the Corporations?" If we "wait it out" who benefits? I am a subject and a ruler of my country. Who are these corporations answering to and subject to? And do we want a government "of the people, by the people and for the people" to give us lip service while really and truly serving corporate interests?
I know, I know, -- "Nice Shot!." "Great Capture!", but pictures make us think, too.
Sunflower, North Dakota - 18x24 Digital Photo Painting : Gone to Look for America - Patrick Alan Swigart © 2007 USA
View "Large" or "Original"
Found: Compositae. Composites or Asters are to the plant kingdom what man is to the animal kingdom. Theoretically man is considered the most advanced genus and species in the evolutionary history of animals. If one were to look for the evolutionary equivalent for the plant kingdom, one would have to consider this genus and its many species. At first glance one would call this a flower. The name sunflower says it is. But you would we mistaken. A composite is not "A" flower but a single plant consisting of many flowers. Each petal or floret is in fact a flower with its own complex of pistol and stamen. It is more highly evolved in the sense that it is something like a colony of flowers living in one large Archopolis, so to speak, of flowers. Whether one knows such things or not does not detract or add to their beauty. Holding such flowers below a child's chin to see if he or she loves butter makes the plant a tradtional favorite of children. Adolescents use it as a form of divination to see if one is loved by another in the "she-loves-me, she-loves-me-not" method which is far more dramatic and suspensful than tossing a coin to see if one has another's love. It would be amusing to see a football game begin with the referee calling the two captains of the teams forward and plucking the petals or florets one at a time to see who will kick and who will receive. Personally, it is a favorite of mine, as I eat a bag or two of sunflower seeds each week. I am mad about the color yellow. Van Gogh shared in this madness for yellow and sunflowers as well. He, however, chose to determine the love of another by plucking his ear. He should have stuck to sunflowers.
