downtime and home at last

Posted in 5D Mark II, Defrag, Germantown, Maryland, Photography, Technique and Development by firthefirst on April 2, 2010

this week has been pretty much insanity congealed into liquid form and then shoved down the throat.  for those of you who don’t know yet, we just bought a house, so there’s lot’s to do, and unfortunately Tina got a cold in addition to her other birthday gifts this week.  so this photo I took yesterday of the road construction at Father Hurley Boulevard near the new home is pretty symbolic I think … beauty and order are just beyond the hill, but right now everything is piles of crushed rock and heavy lifting.  still, I’ve got a photo or two you might be interested in…

decided to play a bit more with CS4’s panorama stitcher; trying to figure out when it’s best to use Auto, when it’s best to use Perspective, and when it’s best to use Cylindrical.  to date I’ve at least discovered that you should probably never use Auto.

how could I not use it in the new house?  forget about new toys, this is a whole new playground.
