You First Read It Here

not that I take any joy in being right, or first in this case, (it is actually sad) but over the past couple days I've seen this theme repeated in the general and business press:
Bailouts: $7 trillion and rising

Almost 2 months ago, the millions of avid readers of my blog read it HERE first.

More Snow

It is dumping down snow tonight. Walking the dogs, it really didn't feel that cold. I took some more cell phone camera shots. I find it hard to hold steady to get a sharp photo.

At The Other End Of Madness

My "good" camera is a Canon EOS-5D. a model that came out 3 years ago. After 3 years, it is finally being replaced with the 5DII which should be available any day now. 3 years is a VERY long lifetime in the universe of DSLR cameras. Quite frankly, I don't need a 5DII (probably didn't need a 5D:) The limitations and any general suckiness of my photography can't be blamed on my camera as it is rarely, if ever, the weak link.

In the meantime, I have this new cell phone for work that has a camera. I've taken to messing with it while I walk the dogs at night. Below are a few of my creations. On one hand, they probably won't be mistaken for high art from a high end camera, but on the other, I find the camera and the results interesting...

This Year's First Snow

Both these photos were taken today from the warm comforts of my apartment...although it is not nearly as cold as it looks :)

Jeff Takes People Pictures Too

They are a very small percentage of what I take, and I'm not particularly good at it (especially not good using flash), but occasionally I end up quite pleased with some of my informal, non-posed portraits.

Shazam!

From a little over a year ago. Everytime I've seen this statue, I expect to see lightning flying from his finger tips...

Sunday Drive

Today was a beautiful day and we went for a little drive out towards Tuzla. We had pleasant lunch at a restaurant overlooking the town in the valley below...
