  2. Been two years. But I'm back.

    by , 11-26-2013 at 09:36 PM
    Well, I kind of departed suddenly. Without a trace. POOF!, one might say.

    I'm sorry I disappeared. I know I don't need to apologize. But I was having a hard time after Faith died. As I mentioned in the last entry I sold all of my camera gear. Just felt the need to remove the 'obligation' I felt to use something I had when I wanted nothing to do with it. And I moved in a different direction, that being getting my family through a tough time.

    Well, about mid-August ...

    Refresh... Refresh...
    Two hot devices
    Two batteries dying
    No outlet, no bars

    No signal, no data-
    Nothing to retweet
    Just fields and barns
    And ruminating cows.

    No towers, just hills
    And trees, and fields,
    And hills, and trees-
    Excruciating silence.

    Obliviously content
    A poor farmer plows-
    Must have ...

  5. Coronal Mass Ejections Recorded by Film

    by , 03-08-2012 at 07:18 PM
    Those who take interest in solar flares have been entertained quite a lot over the past few years. Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) from our Sun hurl massive amounts of charged garbage out into space. The first CME was "seen" by a satellite put up by the lab where I work, with a very primitive pixelated camera that sent a digitized signal to Earth and produced an image on Polaroid film. Perhaps some of the first "hybrid" photography!

    More recent images of these ...
