Please take a look at paradox (my first attempt at this trick).


So I finally got a around to trying it again and I'm fairly happy with the results. Hopefully there will be more to come as I have a bunch of other ideas I haven't tried yet.



This is funny. Apparently my photo was posted somewhere and then link to from reddit yesterday which is apparently why I'm getting more hits again. I'm curious how this happened. Anyway, my favorite comment so far is from rlee0001:


"That's actually the notorious, and highly feared, East Los Angeles photoshop gang. Made up of primarily Asian/Pacific immigrants, they are thought responsible for countless hate related murders and other violent crimes.

The ELAPG is also one of the nations most wealthy gangs. The gang has profited greatly from sales of Heroin and Crack Cocaine, and also from their fairly well known professional 'cleaning' services. Their wealth is one of the most significant factors preventing their capture.

Members of the ELAPG are often spotted on basketball courts with high-end photography equipment. Another dead give-away is the ELAPG dress code: black leather jackets (usually) over red sweaters, and stone washed blue jeans.

Be very careful when within camera shot of any ELAPG members. Any non-member captured by an gang camera will be added to the hit list. When new members are recruited, part of the initiation ritual is to shoot to death, at point-blank range, three randomly selected people from the hit list, and put the picture on their body.

From this picture you can see one non-member (wearing a green jacket in inner picture). You can almost see the fear in his eyes. Don't be surprised when he turns up dead, with that picture on his body."


That's hot! :)


And again:

"Do you know how many ELAPG members there are in that picture? More than thirty. Seven are on the camera crew, and the rest are all ninjas.

That's just how Asians roll."


He cracks my s*** up!

I had a crazy idea last night and decided to run with it. Here's the result. In case you're wondering I didn't superimpose the photograph into this picture. First I composed the inner photograph and actually printed it out on photopaper and held it there for the big shot. (I then later snapped a picture of the printed photograph to help sharpen some of the inside image.)


I guess my original source of inspiration would have to be ocellnuri's Task Force.


Chris, I'm dedicating this one to you.

After seeing so many Krispy Kreme references in the Raleigh Group I just couldn't resist uploading this one. Oh, and it's accompanied by this video in case some of you have never seen these doughnuts being born.

My very first flickr upload... finally! I had so much fun tonight (8/16) with the Raleigh group on top of the RDU parking deck. Thanks to Ocellnuri's suggestion, I used autostitch to create this shot.

This is the photograph I used in paradox v2.0 so you can see what the rest of it looks like. This is the angle I originally intended on using as the main picture, but I failed to realize that pointing towards the sun was a poor decision. So even though the overall quality of this one isn't as good, I think the composition is much better. Please let me know what you think.


To see my original attempt go here.

I shot this with my brand new 50mm f/1.4. I'm lovin' this lens.

NYC from A to Zed: D is for Dunkin' Donuts


So Dunkin' Donuts moves right in next to a beautiful old church and puts up this atrocious sign with a giant styrofoam cup on top. And there's no zoning law to prevent this kind of crap? Take your awful sugary swill back to the suburbs. (And no offense if you live in the suburbs, either. You have my pity for having to contend with this stuff, too.)


See where this miserable establishment exists. [?]

Also known as the "Writing Spider".


This was one of the first specimens I encountered yesterday while hiking Lake Crabtree in a stretch of woods I refered to as "Spider Country". These things were EVERYWHERE, and I'm highly arachniphobic! I need to buy a real macro filter so I don't have to get so darn close next time (~ 2cm).




Check out the other angles of this spider here and here.

8/16/05 - Raleigh flickr meetup at the RDU parking deck.


I took two shots standing here. I tried using autostitch to connect them, but it wouldn't take. For some reason it just squished them together in a really flat and distorted picture.


A month later (about an hour ago) I decided to try to manually stitch them together using photoshop. I resized one of them, adjusted the brightness and color of both to match, I utilized the warp tool, and then I blended them together. I spent about an hour wrestling with this. Take a look at the originals here.


(Take a look at the large size and please let me know if you find a glitch. Thanks.)

I saw this Fiat 500 at a car show and thought... do these come in X-Large?


If the gas problem gets any worse, we should all get one of these.

My friend that was on the training wheels in one of the earlier pictures... yeah, this is his actual ride.

My brother-in-law's cat, Monty, up close and personal. Check out the video here. Plus here's another video of Monty's owner (my brother-in-law) playing with him.

Somehow I think cloning my parents would be a bad idea.


I shot this at my dad's furniture showroom one afternoon when we got bored. I was inspired by ocellnuri's Task Force.

From the impromptu Raleigh Meetup, Feb 11, 2006.


While I was sitting in the car from the last photo, I saw Rob pass me by, so I knocked on the window, and he turned around briefly, and I got off three shots. This was the only one in focus.

From up close you can see how incredibly furry it really is.


This picture gives you an idea of the scale of this magnificent creature.

Kurt, Shannon, Nathan, Amber, and Tom show their flickr spirit at the bowling alley.

My friend snapped this shot of me getting really close to this "Writing spider", two seconds before it raced across the web scaring the crap out of me.

My new camera's helping me conquer my arachnophobia.


During our hike around Lake Crabtree I noticed this pretty little purple flower in a small patch of sunlight in the middle of "Spider Country". A minute later I looked again and to my surprise there was this little butterfly feeding on that exact same flower. It was the first of many butterflies I saw that day.

Having too much fun with these little experiments.


Inspiration for this shot was]

As pochacco20 said "Everyone else is doing it!"

Peer Pressure and all that.

After the painful procedure, Kurt(petshooter) flashes a mean FGS over his freshly pressed flickr tattoo.

After being away from the group for too long, Mark (pochacco20) made an appearance at last night's Raleigh meetup. Welcome back!

My silly sister is quite a nut. She took this video of monty during this shot.

With the power of FGS, Tom makes a flickr tattoo magically appear on his hand. He's also known to make beer disappear.

This is the second version. View the larger version and see if you can spot the fatal flaw. :)

See his photos here.

Mark was focused on shooting the video of our chef working.

From the August 16 Raleigh flickr meetup:

These are the original two pictures I used in who needs autostitch.


I manually stitched them together using photoshop because autostitch couldn't do it properly.

The ghetto bounce flash went and got all growed up. Somehow, the set-up got to involving a spoon this evening.

This was taken from above. I had to raise the camera up high, brace my arm against the wall to hold the camera steady, and just pray to get it in focus.


This picture gives you a better idea of how big it was.

Mark trying to fry me with his green focus assist laser.

pochacco20 kept the entire Raleigh flickr group silent and enthralled as he demonstrated the proper assembly technique for his "ghetto flash reflector."

This was some time before Mark got nailed by the alley staff.

Lost in thought amid the studio equipment: "If I set the ƒ-stop to ƒ5.6, and the shutter speed to 1/50 sec, and the light balance to...."

Mark is trying to make you think he didn't get all kung fu and flatten this sign post in one flying kick. I was trying to get my camera out from under my coat when he went into action, and all I got was this "Who, me?" look. But we know the skills Mark has of being in more than one place at the same time.

This was taken at the Snow Camp Outdoor Theater in Alamance County, NC. I went with a friend to see The Sword of Peace performed by the Snow Camp Historical Drama Society, a non-profit organization that conducts outdoor theater performances. If you live in North Carolina and haven't heard of them, I highly recommend you check them out.

Demonstrating the steel resolve that defines the true flickrist, pochonno10 carefully shoots his shusi from several angles before eating any. I shot this across the table, under the flailing arms of the chef.
