reverse photoshop


Some of you might remember that dove commercial that mades its rounds last November. Here's a great parody illustrating that photoshop can be used to make people ugly too...

soccer


Kate and I joined a mixed soccer team and had our first game last night. Great fun, and in to signify that event, here's some mad soccer skills from Mr. Woo

Welcome to the club


Here's a picture of Kate at her first Sudbury Cycling Club practice. Like almost every new rider to the club she had the privilege of riding with Roy Hums and re-learning how to ride a bike.

Lighting 102


A heads up for aspiring photographers... over at strobist.com they're starting up a new photography lesson, lighting boot camp 102. Its a follow up of a series of "assignments" that were given out for people to try and experiment with off camera lighting. I've been playing with some of this stuff (including the photo below), so am going to give this a try. Any of you photographers can head over and check out what its all about here: Lighting 102 [strobist.com]

Oh, and did I mention it was free?

Here's something I did using some of their techniques (only slight sharpening in photoshop)


Setup of this photo (with notes) here

Back to the Future meets reality


Check this out... Remember that thing (Mr. Fusion) that Doc brings back from the future to power his Delorian on household scraps?

Looks like its coming closer to being a reality... Here's an article over at Popular Science (www.popsci.com) showing a prototype generator that's being made for the US army to use garbage to run a modified desiel generator. Not quite as good as the one Doc used... it takes about 2500 lbs of garbage to produce 60 kilowatts (enough for 3 houses for a day), and its the size of a moving truck.
