Setting up shop in his office? Ranger + background stands + backdrop? Don't forget to bring business cards (the photographer cards, not the plumbing supply cards). Who knows? This gig might lead to weddings and bar mitzvahs.

He's got an open area where two dentist chairs should be (he's waiting to bring in a partner). I've got power, so I'm gonna take a couple of DLite's.

So it's 67 in Astoria and 96 in Vancouver, WA. 30 freeking degree difference. The wind has got to be howling on the Colombia where it cuts through the coastal mountains.

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.

I don't even LOVE the 56. So far, I think the 90 looks better, but we'll see once it gets out in the wild.

That's the best endorsement you're going to get from Mic. I bet years after the 85L is sold, his memories will be legendary. The legend will grow with time. NOTHING in that focal range will ever earn his love.

She is that. Now. It has taken us five years to get her from "hiding under the bed for four months only coming out to eat and poo" to this state. She's still not all that friendly (even in cat terms, although she can turn it on when she wants, and she does mostly love Cha as somewhere to sit/lie on) but something pretty bad must have happened to her before she was rescued, for sure.

Cat's get bonded to humans at a very young age from my understanding. That's why turning feril cat's into pets is near impossible. Where did you girlie cat come from?
