Day 65 – Seasteading, Ultra-Wide Lens, and Watchmen

March 6, 2009

My Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 came in today! I only had between 10 and 15 minutes to try it out, but I am very impressed with it from the first 30 shots I have taken. Above is how a hallway looks through an ultra-wide lens. Click the photo to view larger.

My presentation on seasteading went well. There was a pretty good turnout (20 people not including me). Though I think some people casted off the ideas, and me, as crazy, the rest of us had a great discussion after the presentation. I will post my presentation and notes tomorrow because I have to put them in a presentable fashion.

I went to see Watchmen tonight. At points I was disturbed and at points it was very tormenting to my mind. I really liked the movie, it just bothered me a lot while watching it, and it still bothers me right now. Perhaps I will collect those thoughts and explain exactly why it bothers me, but not tonight. I am off to bed so I can get up and start on a paper before Amanda comes to visit!

For those of you signed up to my email updates, I apologize that they are coming over a day late. I do not know what the issue is, but lately I have been posting twice before one email goes out.

I will post more photos tomorrow from my ultra-wide!
