Focal Length:40mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 7D


Absent a proper sunglasses storage unit in my villa (if such a thing exists), I’ve taken a liking to slipping these onto my pedestal of incandescence. Perhaps it’s not an accident Ikea’s product designers made its width nearly identical to an adult human head. My question is how many dozen or hundred others similarly use this lamp for their glasses. No way do a thousand people do it.

This lamp nearly always looks good in photos. As interesting as it is in the meatspace, its luminescent crinkles translate very well to the digital plane.

Hurricane tomorrow. I’m pumped. A bit peeved that it was downgraded to a mere category 1 fiesta/tempest. This is coming from the guy who rooted for the monsoon while aboard a container ship (we missed it by about a week the captain said).

Wind’n rain.
