f1.4, originally uploaded by billaday.

I got a new lens! It's the Nikon 50mm f1.4. I love the shallow depth of field. There will be many more DoF shots in the next month (year!?) to come. It turns out that getting stuff in focus is really hard with this lens. I have a few shots of faces where the eyes are (slightly) blurry, but the bangs are in focus. Crazy.

Greg Laswell

We went to see Greg Laswell last night at Hotel Café. He was great, and his guitarist Brandon had amazing tones on his electric. Dude. I read an article a while back where Greg talked about the Apogee Duet, a killer audio interface for the computer.

btw, this shot is a 4 second exposure. You can see his face at the top of the purpleness if you view large.

Everet put a bowl on his head and played some beats for us. The kid loves drums, and loves banging on stuff. Good times.

Emergency box

Emergency box, originally uploaded by billaday.

I always feel safer having these emergency boxes around college campuses, but then I get to thinking. Is this 20 year old box really gonna save my life? What if someone attacks me and I'm not right next to it? (Of course, I'm awesome, so I'd demolish them (but not really), but that's not really the point here.) And even if I am right next to this box from the 80's, could I push it in time to be saved? And would it even work? And assuming all that, how intimidating is the local campus police?

Your function

The new MacBook Pro keyboard is so beautiful. How can you not want one of these? I have a theory--if you start writing a book using this keyboard, the book will inevitably be awesome.

I don't do this often, but you must view this on black.
