My new AmazonBasics sling bag. I ended up returning it because it was cut for right-hand carry, the strap was curved in a way that it would dig into your shoulder if you were to carry it lefty.

There is more technology crammed into my home office than what it took to win WWII AND send astronauts to the moon. Combined.

And idiot that I am, I forgot to include my $75 wrist watch, which takes radio signals from a friggin ATOMIC CLOCK to keep itself perfectly in sync.

Basically, except for the lack of affordable flying cars, we ARE living in the future.

This was a one-click operation in the Nikon D5100, something that would take an untrained person like myself over an hour if done manually. And it would have never looked as smooth as this.

No photo today, went for a composition. Notice that the composition itself is not licensed under Creative Commons since at least one of the source images did not have explicit reuse permissions.

And yes, Han shot first.

This is the second time this year that we get hit with "favorite place" as the theme for a Saturday, so here's PJs favorite place to spend a Saturday afternoon: Generous George's in Herndon, VA.

#photoadaymay #project366 18/139: Something you made (a mess)

Here is how I explained it to a coworker:

Today's pic explained:

Pedro V. 11:07 AM had an insomniac episode last night, it gave me the crankys
Pedro V. 11:07 AM today's photo theme is "something I made"
Pedro V. 11:07 AM I cleaned a kitchen counter, dropped an egg from 18 inches away and took 15 pics
Pedro V. 11:07 AM got one usable pic out of the 15
Pedro V. 11:07 AM "good enough"
Pedro V. 11:07 AM showed Ivette the pic
Pedro V. 11:07 AM "today's theme is something I made"
Pedro V. 11:07 AM "YOU MADE A MESS"
Pedro V. 11:07 AM "that's correct"

133: Something that makes you happy (Bokeh!)

Fantastic lens, I eventually sold it for about 75% of what I paid for it, so I see I broke even. If you are shooting Nikon APS-C cameras, this is a must-own lens.

Had to shoot it on a tripod to avoid each and every one of my friends to claim that they could see me naked reflected on the kettle. Even if I was fully dressed when I shot this.

That first aroma when you punch the seal is downright intoxicating.

This is the kind of black and white filtering that only works on men.
