GETTIN' MY MACRO ON


I just got a new super-slick Nikon Coolpix S51, so I'm hoping to bring my photography up a notch. I can actually take pictures of small things, dark landscapes, and indoor scenes now. Look at Mr. Blik here. You can actually see the dust covering him! Not to mention, there's some bokeh going on. I'll have to give all my toys the treatment.

PS. This is my 100th post. Yay me!

FUN WITH PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS

There was a thread in the Flickr Name That Film group about making fake DVD covers for movies that are never likely to get a release from the arty label Criterion. I submitted my favorite Korean stop-motion movie about a talking turd, Doggie Poo.

PS. You don't ever want to search for "doggie poo" in Google Images. Trust me on this.

FAME WHORE UPDATE

Well, I got a release form to sign from Henry Owings, so it looks like I might be in the next Chunklet book, The Rock Bible. Next stop, The New Yorker! That Sasha Frere-Jones needs to be taken down a peg or two.
