I use to laugh at this sign.


Now I don't swim in public pools.

Preparedness and Survival / Re: Ebola SHTF
« Last post by GTGallop on Today at 11:31:39 AM »
It is rather disappointing to see how the skilled, educated, equipped and trained medical profession has handled this.  Not so much that they allowed themselves to become infected - that is the unintentional side effect of bravely going into harms way.  But the decisions to bowl, fly, take cruises, etc...   Why would you ever jeopardize the masses with a disease you have first hand knowledge of how horrible it can be.

Is this what the intersection of arrogance and a lack of common sense looks like?

I'm wondering why people who are treating Ebola patients aren't quarantined upon their arrival back in the US. 

He had a high fever and he just got done treating Ebola patients. Hmmmm  Here's your blues clue moron!

Shotguns / Re: Thinking of my next shotgun

Don't get me wrong, the idea of the Versamax is appealing, its less money after all.  Thats not a bad thing.  But I dislike that I can't get a 20" or 18" VMax.  22" is just a LONG shotgun for HD.

Agreed, I'm still waiting for these to hit the civilian market.

I talked to James of 18 Fab and he said that anyone with a neon vest can get as close as they want for pictures. They just have to pay the $10 entrance fee.

Gear matters a lot in photography, especially in the lens department. Camera bodies and sensors are important but good glass is extremely important. The big key in photography is to start with good light, without it nothing will work out right. I shoot with several camera systems but I have over 175 lenses available to me that I own. I shoot a lot of cinema lenses on a PL mount Canon 5DII for stills, you can't get that look without the lenses no matter how much time you spend in photoshop. Having the option I have in lenses along with other goodies like camera cranes and remote follow focus units and remote viewing allowed me to get shots and perspectives you couldn't get without them. I would not have made the money I made without the gear I had and taken the work away from guys who shot for agencies for many years, my work was different and it sold. If I hadn't used the gear I used my work would have looked like everyone elses.

My work on a Canon body looks completely from the same shot on a Nikon, Nikon doesn't fit me but Canon does. Leaf digital backs do not look the same as a Phase one back for me, Leaf is where it is at for me.

That is certainly a nice resume you typed out there, but I must disagree.  A million dollars in glass isn't going to be worth one penny if you don't know how to compose an image.

This debate however is the .45 vs. 9mm debate of the photography world.  It plays out on photog forums with some regularity, and in about the same way.  I'll just stand by what I said and leave it alone.

I shot this cover for the Valley Times a couple months ago (attached).  It was a fun shoot.

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Dog's in cars

Went to the MVD this morning at 36th ave and Rose Garden (North Phx).
Someone had a black Lexus with a Jack Russel inside. Windows up. Sitting in the sun.

I reported it to the MVD - seemed appropriate at the time. They made her go crack her windows because "it was causing an issue for some of the customers."

WTF!!!

How about the issue it creates for the dog?
How about the people that are on the administrative end of traffic laws and regulation actually KNOWING THE LAWS?  Cracking the window will only prolong that dogs suffering. So pissed!
