Hallway view of the first edition of the New & Arabesque Map of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden
|| 10/14/2008 || 7:43 pm || Comments Off on Hallway view of the first edition of the New & Arabesque Map of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden || ||

The other day I realized that posting maps here in digital format doesn’t show perspective well. For the image above I decided to switch it up and show the newly framed map from the perspective of looking down my hallway.

Below is the original photograph of the new map:

October Sunset
|| 10/13/2008 || 1:19 pm || Comments Off on October Sunset || ||

Capturing a beautiful sunset can be one of most difficult photographs to take using a point & shoot camera. Either the flash goes off and dilutes all the ambient light, or when the flash is turned off, you get an annoying blur due to the fact that you cannot stop your heart from beating in order to achieve perfect stillness. Of course its easier when you have a tripod and for this photograph I believe I simply placed the camera on the balcony of my back deck, adjusted the exposure levels, put on the timer, and the result is what you see above.

A long time ago a couple friends of mine & I devised a “Beautiful Sunset Alert System,” where subscribers would be notified if by txt of a beautiful sunset. Upon viewing a beautiful sunset, the administrators would rate the sunset’s colors & ambiance and then send out the txt with their ratings. While this system never came into reality, I would have sent out an alert.

The Obligatory MySpace Birthday Screen Grab
|| 10/10/2008 || 7:09 am || Comments Off on The Obligatory MySpace Birthday Screen Grab || ||

On my birthday in 2006 I noticed that my MySpace profile hit 10,000 visitors on my birthday (10/10) and I took a screen grab for archival purposes. I followed up again last year and again this year with the image above.

What I can extrapolate here is not that MySpace presence has diminished (I have more friends today than in 2006 or 2007), rather people are simply using MySpace less and less. This is exactly what happened with Friendster as MySpace began to take over the social networking “scene.” On a given day, I can find most of my friends using Facebook and in this respect I see history repeating. However there is no profile view counter on Facebook, so screen grabs like the one above are not possible.
