Isn't that the building with the gold in the window panes that is irrecoverable? And reduces the buildings cooling costs, while raising them for the neighbouring towers?

That's why I was told during a guided tour of Toronto's downtown (they skipped the Hockey Hall of Fame to take us to Eaton's instead).

Allegedly irrecoverable, no one's stolen a window yet though given there's ~$230 worth of gold in each window I'm sure someone's plotting to do so. But yeah, it's kinda fitting really, only a bank could come up with such brilliant dickery. If you stand across the street from the building during summertime you can actually feel the heat reflecting off the windows.

It's just the compass rose at the top of Hawksbill Mountain, which happens to be the tallest mountain in Shenandoah National Park. The CCC built that little stone outcropping, must have been one hell of a hike up with all those rocks as there's no road leading to it...

Dude to be fair by the time we got out east we were running out of days; hence we just drove along Skyline. Also I figured you'd be busy.

See if you can guess what day I visited

I think I've made one too many visits to Ken Rockwell's site...

Definitely. Now go buy a roll of Astia 100F while you still can (it has been discontinued) and shoot is as antidote for Rockwellian hypersaturation. Look at this picture by Giulia Rossa. Colori stupendi indeed!

Well, yours is a nice shot as well and could really be from Rockwell's site. If that is your thing, I mean :mrgreen:

So we went to the digital camera show today, and I was supposed to be doing something, but I got distracted and forgot what it was.
Olympus was cool, they were the only ones to have a model for testing out their cameras.

Was that the standard kit lens that comes with E-PL1?

Yeah, that's the 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens zoom.
No, it won't make the background that smooth & out of focus, that was the joys of Photoshop and gaussian blur. In the original, the background is just as sharp as the model.

edit: posting on pizza & wine night doesn't make sense half the time.

Yeah, I thought there was something fishy with the background, since 19 mm f/4 should not give very good background blur, and also the model did not "pop" like with real optical blur, and the blurring was strange looking. I am not too good with spotting photoshopping though; someone with more experience on it would have probably noticed it without even looking at the exif data.

Well, the idea is you guys would be too busy looking at her tits to notice anything fishy with the picture.
Yeah I missed a few spots, I was photoshopping while under the influence, sue me. :)
