A deep look into things nobody in their right mind would care to look at.

Found an abandoned house and had to check it out. The house was boarded up tight and I wasn’t able to explore the interior. I’ll check it out again later.

Two thirds of the internet is effectively hacked

It turns out that the internet has been broken… Or at least two thirds of it. Recently researchers at google seem to believe that a bug in OpenSSL (something internety) makes information sent over the internet easily accessible or something. They even gave it the name “heardlbead bug” which news sites are mediabating to like crazy. I was thinking of changing my tumblr theme to look like skynet took over but i didn’t think it would catch on.

Ottawa auto show pics. I don’t even really like cars that much but some were pretty cool. All taken with my new samsung nx1000

Street Photography

(Cops sternly talking to some dude. Will be way sharper after I get a real neg scanner)

I thought after taking a trip to the auto show today that I would do a little bit of street photography downtown. The image above is far from a finished product but I think it still looks pretty cool and is a good example of how personal you can get when you’re taking photos on the street. Allot of people are a little squeamish about taking photos of people especially when you’re really getting into their business for fear that they may be doing something illegal or some meathead will mess up your camera… or themselves I guess. The thing is that allot of people just don’t care and it’s perfectly legal in most places to take pictures of anything anywhere you want provided whoever owns the property is ok with it. Generally speaking on public property anything goes.

This is what 30 gets you at the thrift store

I love when people sell me nice stuff at the thrift shop for like nothing. I got a mint ziess jena 50mm f1.8 on a praktica l2 body. It even had the original leather case. Best of all it had what I really like finding on a camera is some indication of it’s old owner. After googling a tag underneath the body I found out that the camera was owned by a Doctor from east Germany who after living in Canada for many years, passed away in February . There’s probably quite a story in this camera. Right now I’ve got the lens on my pentax spotmatic. 

Look at what I found at the dollar store! Well at least they were clever enough to stick the no name discount pregnancy tests beside the no name discount condoms for when they fail.
