Something about the Dozen. I’d much rather refer to “10’s” as “a couple dozens” when referring to those quantities under hundreds but larger than handfuls.

A brotherly birthday hitting before my own double dozen, that annual switch in personal-identity numerals. The progression of age based on a ball of rock whipping elliptically around a ball of gas as we all prance about on the fragile flour of a planetary crust.

This particular technique is something I haven’t explored extensively, and haven’t seen others delve into either. It’s a shot pulled out of complete darkness into this, with a gridded pattern of noise and everything. It’s dim inside light, without the two flashes that were supposed to fire. Wouldn’t be possible with a JPG file, but RAW… RAW is what, 14-bit? Whatever.

Happy Birthday Brother!
