There I was standing in the middle of my kitchen looking at a tower of dishes stacked so high that it seemed only to be held together by will alone – the will of the mold that had finally begun to creep through the remains of various dinners, lunches and waffle-laden breakfasts. It was utterly disgusting and for a moment I was completely ashamed of myself for allowing it to grow into such a problem. I knew that I couldn’t clean this place alone so I hired a house cleaner in Westchester County NY to do what I couldn’t bring myself to do.
Without their help I would have never been able to get this place clean again. When you’re a busy student working an internship there is almost never any time to clean or do much of anything but work, work and more work. With my Mastery’s program in full swing I was generally spending all of my time grading papers from the class I was teaching and doing homework from my own classes. Read more →
We really thought that we would be in the house by now, but obviously we were more than a little naive and there was a lot more to it than we realized at first. We are just now working on the final details and we hope that we are going to be moving our stuff in the place by the start of the month. I had to go get home insurance quotes for one thing. I did not realize that they made you get it before they give you the loan on the house. It is not for your sake in fact, but because they want to be sure that you have the means to repay them no matter what. Read more →
I had to ask myself that question this morning. I was sitting at my desk and the guy beside me showed me an ad for something called a selfie stick iphone. He was talking about getting it as a gag gift for his brother in law. Apparently he is both an Apple fan boy and one of those people who are constantly taking selfies and then emailing them to hundreds of people. I know a couple of these sorts of people and it really makes me wonder if they really think that they are that interesting. When I sit down to a plate of ham and eggs at Denny’s I never think that I should take a picture of myself and my food and then email it to all of the people in my address book. Read more →

Domke F-3X review + loaded photos
Image by bgolub
The Domke F-3X is my new favorite bag. Thanks Megen for the birthday present!
Some but not much. This isn’t a bag for transporting your gear long distances (although I’ve taken it all around the world and never had any issues). It’s a bag for shooting from. The bottom is padded but the sides are just canvas. In the top left photo you can see the one insert the bag comes with; it attaches to velcro on the 2 sewn in pieces of canvas that make the side compartments. The canvas actually does a good job to protect the camera. Better than I thought it would. I cannot feel the lenses or camera bounce against me as I carry the bag.
This is a very easy to use, comfortable bag. The canvas material wears well and the whole bag molds to your hip. It looks much smaller than my Crumpler 6 million dollar home but holds more. The strap has rubber woven in to provide a nice grip that won’t move around. Loaded with 3 lenses and an FX body it got a bit heavy but I rarely take my 70-300mm with me. With just the D700, 16-35mm, and 50mm it feels perfect.
It still looks like a camera bag to me; but less so than a Lowepro or even a Crumpler do. I like the green color but you can also get it in a traditional black. It molds to your hip so it looks smaller than what it’s capable of holding.
The side pockets would be great for holding a flash. I use one to hold a rocket blower at the moment. The canvas pieces in the main compartment aren’t sewn to the bottom so they can collapse like in the lower left photo. My only wish is that the velcro came with a "muter" that some newer bags often have and that they used a plastic clip instead of a clumsy metal one that is difficult to use with one hand.
Update: This bag made it through MOMA without a docent asking me to leave it at the coat check. The Crumpler 6 million dollar home, also a great bag, always needed be to checked.

70s Nikons: Nikomat with 50mm f/1.4 lens
Image by Chris Devers
These cameras belonged to my parents before I was born, when my dad was stationed in the army in Germany. There, they bought the Nikkormat (all manual) and the slightly newer Nikomat (auto-shutter, manual aperture). By the time I was given the cameras to learn on in the late 90s, they were around 35 years old.
* * * * * * * * * *
Really, this is all the controls any camera ever needs. Right? Right.
If you want to make some or all of this automatic, fine, but at least make the fundamental controls — shutter release, aperture (f/stop), exposure time (in 1/n second notation), and ISO sensitivity — super prominent and easy to manipulate.
The D50 doesn’t really get this right, but then most of the cameras I’ve played with don’t either. It’s not too bad to hold for one of these settings — set the dial to "M" (full-manual), "A" (lock aperture), "S" (lock shutter speed), or "P" (err, I’ve never fully grasped this one, seems to let you manipulate the focus locking I think), then spin a dial to select the aperture or shutter you want.
But I find the D50′s full manual mode too fiddly to bother with, so I never use it. And the canned program modes — "portrait", "landscape", "kids", "sports", "plants/macro" — seem too gimmicky. If you know what adjusting the fundamental controls will do, and really it’s not that complicated, then it’s easy enough to do it manually, provided that the controls are easy to manipulate.
I guess that’s what I miss: the tactile feedback of these controls. Rather than having to look at an LED panel on top while spinning a thumbwheel, you can keep your eye through the viewfinder while adjusting rings right on the lens barrel to access the controls. On this one, the only viewfinder feedback you’d get would be a simple "over/under exposed" level on the side, along with a focus ring in the middle; with the Nikkormat it would display the aperture (and I think exposure time) as well, which is even better.
Short version: mechanical rings good, software controls & too many options bad.
All that said, I can’t see ever shooting film again, so as nice as these were, I think they have a permanent place gathering dust in the closet now. Poor things.

Make a shade garden out of your organic garden. Shade gardens do not require a lot of maintenance, which is very appealing to most people. This type of garden requires only a small amount of water, which makes it especially easy to maintain. They do grow slower, but you have less weeds to get rid of. Lightly ruffle your seeds by hand or with cardboard, twice daily in your organic garden. It sounds weird, but research has shown that handling the seedling like this often will make them grow bigger than seedlings that are ignored. An organic garden doesn't have to be restricted to a few types of plants. You can grow anything. Mulch is the friend of plants that need acidity to thrive. Spread two inches of pine needles in the fall every year. The needles will decompose and deposit natural acids in the soil. Use the leaves you rake out of your yard as an organic compost to mix with your soil. When the leaves decompose, they turn into a nutrient rich organic compost, Keep On Analyzing

Watch for signs of a serious asthma attack in order to know whether you should rush to the hospital with your child. Some signs of an attack that is very serious include blue-ish or gray fingernails and lips and increased medication use with diminished or no effect. If your child is having difficultly talking normally, this may also be an indication of a life threatening attack.When cleaning your house, clean floors with a wet mop instead of a broom. When you sweep, you are stirring up asthma triggers that can cause you to have an asthma attack. When you dust, use a damp cloth instead of a feather duster which can spread these triggers.You can use the preventative inhaler daily, but know that it can cause mouth infections near your gums and teeth. One way to reduce the probability of such infections is to immediately brush and gargle after inhaling the medicine.See how many times a week you typically use the rescue inhaler.

Take care of wooden cutting boards properly. Wood is prone to warp or split when used as a cutting board. Food juices, plus the washing and drying process, will cause this damage. Never immerse the board in water, rather, sponge it off with warm, soapy water. You can find oil designed for cutting boards to maintain yours. Be sure to dry it off completely before using. When you are cooking for someone for the first time, always stick with a recipe that you are comfortable with. This will allow you to impress your boss or significant other. Please them by cooking a recipe you are familiar with, and can cook very well. Add winter greens for hearty cold weather meals. After a first frost, these veggies have a very sweet yummy taste.

The musicality of these units was superior - they could rock or funk out as easily as they could move the crowd with a soulful tenor ballad. In the '90s, a dynamic young new band emerged to continue this tradition: Mint Condition, now the greatest self-contained R&B band of our time. Mint Condition does it all - delivering hard-bitten funk with a hip-hop edge, rocking out with screaming lead guitar, and crooning lush, "baby-making" soul ballads.
