Shout out to one of my all time favorite internet things: this collection of images of novelty baby clothing on zazzle but with the default model switched to an adult.

I'm writing some haikus, inspired by Austin Kleon's notes on Richard Wright's haikus (which I now want to read all of).
They feel very derivative at first, but that's the great thing about haikus: it's easy to iterate fast and often!
tech work, programming
I need to figure out how to solve some of my problems with Python, C++, or Java instead of with SQL so that I can prove I'm a "real programmer" worthy of a job ladder change.
There's a relatively arbitrary distinction between real and fake programming based on language used, and it can have a real impact on your compensation and job prospects.
Went out shooting last night with a friend. We did portraits on 35mm and 120. I tested out my current favorite color stock, Fujicolor C200, in my F3 and finished up a roll of Fuji Pro 400H in the Bronica. Started a roll of Portra 160 in the Bronica, too. #FilmPhotography
I’ m really interested in shooting more #filmphotography. But some things make me hesitate:
1) film costs too much
2) it’s hard to find place to develop/print film, and again, costs too much
3) I see a lot of beautiful film pictures with nice textures, rich colors and impressive dynamic range. Is this real film photography, or it’s heavily pumped up in post processing?
Lots of discomfort today while programming in Django. Doing things that I'm not as familiar with. It's a little frightening.
Programming is all about meeting this discomfort and seeing your way through. It's not pleasant, but it can be rewarding.
I've been programming for most of my life and still feel like I'm learning every day. I say this not to dissuade you, but rather to say you have a traveling companion.
Let's make shit happen.
Jewish human rights scholar: yes, America has built concentration camps
Weather is crap. I want to go shoot photos, but instead I'm inside trawling KEH and other outlets for new gear.
This is GAS for you.
