Trump Responds to NYC Bombing by Complaining That the New York Times Says He Watches Too Much TV

Indeed, it appears that POTUS is ignoring today’s national security news because he is fuming about a weekend New York Times story that reported that his primary occupation as president is reading and responding to the little headlines that scroll along the bottom of cable news programs. Slate

simplicity

Beware any fad that promises to simplify life your life by up-selling you. You don’t need a book, an app, or a blog a post to bring greater simplicity to life. No barrier to entry is what makes simplicity special and beautiful in the first place: you don’t need anything at all to enjoy it, except the will and commitment to ditch whatever is unnecessarily complicated and getting in the way. … In order to enjoy a simpler life, you do NOT need to read this post jamesshelley.com

Argle-Bargle by Troon Brewing

Aperture—ƒ/2.5Credit—Khürt L. WilliamsCamera—NIKON D5100Taken—11 November, 2017Copyright—© 2017 Khürt L. WilliamsFocal length—35mmISO—160Keywords—Argle-Bargle, Pale Ale, Troon Brewing, craft ale, sandwichShutter speed—1/320sTitle—Argle-Bargle I had to look up the word/phrase argle-bargle. What the heck is argle-bargle? It’s a phrase I had never heard before. So I googled. When did Google become a verb? It’s not. I meant I typed “argle-bargle” into the search box in google.com in a browser. And boom ( have you tired Lord Hobo Brewing Boom Juice ), I had a rabbit hole of links to follow some of which linked to a Slate article on Justice Scalia and another to a definition. That little dictionary definition wasn’t enough. Funny phrase rabbit hole. It’s both a literal hole, a burrow, and a metaphor for an entry into uncharted territory, especially one that is disorienting or mentally deranging. The phrase is taken from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I have seen the Disney movies, but I have never read that book. Or anything by Lewis Carroll, real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Carroll was an English mathematician. Math, like the world of Alice in Wonderland, doesn’t really exist. It springs completely from the human mind. I guess like Alice’s adventures, and just like recipes for craft ale. Like Dogfish Head Higher Math. Dogfish Head Higher Math. It’s a _golden strong ale fermented with sour cherry juice and cocoa nibs and clocks in at 17% ABV). Holy crap 17% alco …

Broken Asahi Pentax Spotmatic

Aperture—ƒ/5.6Credit—Khürt L. WilliamsCamera—NIKON D5100Caption—Asahi Pentax SpotmaticTaken—4 November, 2017Copyright—© 2017 Khürt L. WilliamsFocal length—35mmISO—160Keywords—Asahi Pentax Spotmatic, BrokenShutter speed—1/250sTitle—Broken. When I was a kid growing up in the St. Vincent & the Grenadines1 my dad would take us on road trip out to the countryside. Note, this was on an island that is 345 kilometre 2 (133 miles2). A road trip isn’t more than a 10-15 minutes drive. But as a kid, it felt as though we were traveling for hours over great distances. Sometimes, these trips were to the top of a part of the volcanic ridge that bisects the island. Other times it was to a previous unexplored beach along the coastline. For me, it always felt like an adventure. My father often brought his camera, an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic II film camera. The Spotmatic was introduced by Asahi in 1964 and was the first camera to sell well with Through-the-Lens light meterinIn many ways, my dad is the first photographer I knew personally. My dad was an aloof father so I can’t say he taught me about photography but watching him take photos of us during our mini adventures left me with some pleasant memories. The camera in this photo is the same Asahi Pentax Spotmatic my dad used when I was a kid. My mom found it a few years ago while cleaning out for a move. I was excited to have it. But … it’s broken. I replaced the battery but stripped the screws on the battery compartment in the process. The shutter works …

October Morning on Blue Spring Road

The image is a row of maple trees along Blue Spring Road in my neighbourhood. I went out for a 30-minute walk before breakfast and noticed how the morning sun was illuminating the varying colours of the leaves. The photo was captured with the Adobe Lightroom mobile app on my iPhone 7. I applied an Orton Effect preset to the image in Photoshop.
