03:25 pm - New Yorker Magazine, complete set on DVD (through 2005) for only $19.99 o

This $19.99 deal for the Complete New Yorker DVD set is compelling!
I can probably divest four or five boxes of physical backissue magazines while still
having all the content available whenever I want it!

Note there is a DVD Updater v1.3 that's also $19.99 that will bring the whole set up
to April 2008.

03:31 pm - Starting the week

Went through my friends list, and removed folks who I had friended who didn't friend me back, or who had de-friended me at some time.

Not doing this out of spite or hurt - just pragmatism. I'd rather focus my energy more on mutual friendships.

Perhaps this will mean I read LJ more often, perhaps post more often.
Make it less of a spectator sport.

We shall see.

If anybody is unhappy at having been "un-friended" just contact me and we'll talk about it.

02:07 pm - Cool stuff - tilt-shift photography

Tilt-shift photography is a creative and unique type of photography in which the camera is manipulated so that a life-sized location or subject looks like a miniature-scale model. Below we present 50 beautiful examples of tilt-shift photography. All examples are linked to their sources. We strongly encourage you to explore other works of the photographers we’ve featured in this post.
To add good miniature effect to your photographs, shoot subjects from a high angle (especially from the air). It creates the illusion of looking down at a miniature model. A camera equipped with a tilt-shift lens, which simulates a shallow depth of field, is essentially all you need to start.
