Flickr + Library of Congress = Awesome

Flickr and the Library of Congress have teamed up to host part of the LoC's image collection online.

The result?  Gems like this one:

And this one:

You can view many more Library of Congress images on Flickr, and you can read more about the Commons project.  The LoC also has a searchable online catalog of photos.

I'm a sucker for old photographs, so I'm in hog heaven right now.

Taking the 2007 Family Photo

It's that time of year again, where we gather around and try to take a family photo.  Here's how it went for us.

First, Troy has to warm up his posing muscles:


Okay.  We're ready.  Everybody smile!


Smile, Troy.


Dangit.  Almost.  Smile, Troy!


Yes… aw, damnit, Homer!

Frack.  Okay, the dog wants to be in the picture.  C'mere, Homer!  Homer, come!


HOMER!!!  Yeah, that's what I thought.

Okay, everyone look at the camera.


*sigh* Troy, look at the camera, please.


Seriously, Homer?  I'm gonna turn you into Dog Jerky in 2 seconds.


F*#% it.  Close enough.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

[Thank you to the Hunters for taking the pictures for us!]

First pics

This is one of the first pictures I took with my new D80.  Obviously, I have no clue what I’m doing, but even in point-and-shoot mode, it takes damn good pictures.
