Rock, Paper, Scissors

I just got back from the 2003 World Rock Paper Scissor Championships, held here in Toronto, and organized by the WorldRPS Society The grand champion, winning $5000, was a member of the “Legion of the Red Fist.” I was an official tournament referee there, so I’ll have an update later. Update. Photos from the event. The Official Photo Gallery.

Stupid Xbox

The following image, titled stupidxbox, has been sitting in my dump directory for some months. It is a picture of an odd error message that the machine gave me, and it’s very subtle in its idiocy. Yes, my XBox is officially retarded. I attended a Classic Gaming Collectors of Canada swap meet on Sunday; here’s some quick photos of the event. I didn’t have many traders — and even less cash — but despite that I, once again, have a…

Not Much Going On

The old abandoned radar site. It has its stories.

Moon

The night sky is quite pleasant today. The full moon is very bright, and is as it was for van Gogh 114 years ago; and Mars, itself, is very bright and prominent in the sky and is interesting in its own right. Inspired by this, I decided to write the Moon. Literally. Using four 2-second exposure shots, I wrote “Moon” using… the moon: Composite of four shots. Staying with the celestial theme, Canada has recently launched its first orbital space…

A sad thing it is

A sad thing it is. In the last four months, I have barely even touched my camera. All I have to show for that period of time is some blurry pictures of Buffalo, some shots of various content on my tv, and some driving shots during a really foggy night. I paid good money for this damned thing, and I feel guilty for not using it. I need some sort of shutter-bug motivation. A subject. A scene. Anything really, just…

Out and about

Now that I have my camera back, ventures into the rural wilds of Southern Ontario don’t seem quite as pointless.

Lo-fi gif action

I took my camera in for repairs yesterday. It was a small speck that kept showing up on my pictures that did it for me. Nothing serious, I hope, but nothing that an extended warranty wasn’t meant to cover. Good thing that I had a warranty, as I generally avoid getting one — but when I do, I better make damned sure that I make the most of it. In the abscence of my beloved Fuji, I’m forced to resort…

great outdoors

Driving. It’s been a long while since I took a quiet, rural drive and got some fresh air. Being up there in the vast open outdoors, I realized that I have never sat down and just watched the sun rise. I think I found the perfect place, just a bit north of the city, to do that. Hopefully, sometime soon, I’ll be able to find the time to spare for it.

My new toy

My new toy, with a keychain and a twoonie for size comparison. Yes, it’s rather small… but it does take (low-fi) megapixel shots (1280res), it does take (limited) video, and it can be used as a (mini) web-cam. All in a package that fits nicely into a shirt pocket!
