Smugmug and Sedona

Today is brought to you by the letter ‘S’.  Recovering from a wonderful week in Sedona, and using Smugmug to handle the photos going forward (for now).  It actually does give me everything I want, and then some, but I’m not entirely happy with the cost.  Am I finally to the point where hosting/coding is too much work that I’ll pay others to do it for me?

Photos from the trip are here, and for the first time in forever I didn’t have to reduce the pictures’sizes to protect the server: https://howlingpoint.smugmug.com/Sedona-Roadtrip-June-2018/

No words…

but pictures.

Easter and rowers and birthdays and sea lions.

Writing About Photography Law

Just finished a top to bottom update of my 2006 article on Personal Photography and Personal Websites.  Even though there were shiny new cases and a few longer citations there hasn’t been much new to the civil issues arising from Civil Code § 3344, but I felt it was time to reference the criminal issues arising from sharing naughty pictures after promising not to (Penal Code § 647) after reading a few poorly written summaries in the mainstream media in their New Year’s new law roundup clickbait articles.  And no, naughty pictures is not the term of art, but I’ll leave the quotes of the legislature’s explicit list to the article and the code itself.

Now that the updates are finished, maybe I can get back to actually doing some photography, or even practicing billable law.

2007-11-01-A-007vhp_FULLThat pumpkin’s been dead seven years now.  The chair is long gone too, and we left the apartment that was shot at back in 2011.  But sometimes the scariest thing is going back through the archives here and at the photo gallery and seeing 13+ years of posts.  Utterly terrifying.

Making That List

Just a reminder that Darth Santa is out and about making his annual naughty and not naughty enough list.

Having a great holiday and hope you are too.

Where We’ve Been

Things haven’t actually been slow, just too busy to post here.  Spending more time playing on Facebook, and spent too much time this month cleaning up a hack attack on my server that completely shut down the photo gallery and messed up a lot of other things.  Law work and holiday preparations and Cal cheering and the supreme purpose of my life, i.e, holding Diego’s leash and gushing over at his ability to sniff and poop have also kept me away from here.

Weekend Non-Plans

UCSD Water PoloIn years past I’d be all about heading down to UCSD for the Triton Invitational water polo tournament over the long weekend, but this year…meh.  The tournament that in 2006 included fourteen teams and 29 separate games will only host six teams playing a total of ten games this weekend.  None of the other UCs will be there, and with Cal coming down separately next month I’m just not seeing the attraction this year.  The fact that the tournament no longer includes bracket play leading to a spectacular final, but rather a pre-ordained final game between Air Force and La Verne doesn’t help.

Nothing against Air Force.  Nothing at all.

I’d just like a little suspense and drama with my beefcake.

So instead we might head up to Disney, or enjoy the San Clemente Village Farmer’s Market (emphasis on the local artists) on Sunday morning.  Or just paint a bathroom and run some wiring.  Or sit on the coach and watch Red State on VOD.  Or just do nothing at all.

Spending Locally

Checked out a local photo place earlier this week. I’ve been looking for someone who can print in larger formats than my equipment can handle, and they came highly recommended. The guy I spoke with knew his stuff and made a great first impression, not just with his knowledge of the options and issues available, but also with the following notation on his price chart:

We never print on glossy because it’s evil!

Good to see a local business that respects standards. Just uploaded two images for printing; I’ll drop by next week and see if my initial reaction was justified.

In Good Company

I knew the photography exhibition at the San Diego County Fair was big, but had no idea it was this big.  4000 submitted photographs?  982 different photographers?  Wow.

Received an e-mail this morning providing the list of accepted entries: this photo from a February 2009 rugby match made it, this photo of Diego at last June’s vacation doesn’t seem to have made the cut.  Awards won’t be announced until June 11.
