Got hacked last night. All my files are being held ransom and have been overwritten and encrypted. Including a depressingly large number amount of photos - as my back up drive was connected when it occurred. For sure at least six months of photos and lot more on my computer. Might have been a zero day exploit of flash players that was announced this week. I didn't sleep much last night. I am reasonably sure I have to resign myself to this not being something I can recover from. I won't be posting till this is sorted out.

I will, one day, again make the pretty things.
I will just need some patience, time, and better computer security to stop yesterday's brutal and demoralizing ransomware attack happening again.

1/52 'Peeps'.
I decided to do a proper 52 week challenge. I already do an unofficial 365 challenge as I post photos nearly every day - and have for more than a decade, but starting today, I will post a themed photo each Sunday for 52 weeks in a row. My rules are that these will be objects and things, and not places or beings. All the photos will be shot with a 50mm f1.8 and with a very shallow depths of field. I call this my Nifty Fifty Fifty Two.

I got to use a Joby Gorilla Pod for the first time today. Wrapped it around an adjacent tree to get this image. My only question is, what the heck is this Jacks like plant thing? A google search made me think that it might be White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) but they usually have red stalks and more of them in one spot . Maybe a variation there of?

Sutherland Press building
May 2015
It's my understanding that this building was slated to be turned into loft condos or apartments but things fell through and it just stalled part way through the renovations. There are very few loft style buildings in SW Ontario, so if it ever did get off the ground it would be pretty unique.

NYT obit about American photographer and former Magnum president Charles Harbutt. Chock full of inspirational goodness and quotes from the man. And just a bit of name dropping of the who's who of 20th century photography.

"J'accuse ...!" - Emil Zola.
This seems, at least from the information that the Daily Mail has presented in the link, to be a case of a small portion  of a speech by the distinguished Nobel Laureate Sir Tim Hunt, being selectively - a la FoxNews, excerpted out of context and used to destroy his half century long career. And as it turns out, the person making the accusations, Connie St Louis, has more problems with her credibility - specifically what she has put on her CV, than there are holes in Swiss cheese.  If she lied, allegedly, on her CV to the extent it seems, how can the prima facie evidence she gave on social media now hold up and still be the only thing used for the internet to vilify him and for his employer to terminate him? I am not sure if Sir Tim Hunt has it in him to sue for defamation, but he should. Either way, I suspect Connie St Louis is going to get her comeuppanceso... more »

Reviewing the video of the launch failure, to my untrained eye it looks like the second stage propellant tank ruptured somehow. If you watch the video in slow motion from 23m35 onwards (video runtime) at T+ 00 :02 : 18 or a fraction after there is a tiny white spot on the second stage, and then a huge white plume erupting from the right (camera perspective) side of the second stage a fraction after 00: 02: 19. The white spot could have been a digital artifact or flare off the fuselage, but it could be something. #SpaceX #Dragon

+NASA 's contracted  +SpaceX launch to the ISS breaks up 2m18s into the lift off about half an hour ago. 
Watching it live, and seeing the LOX?(?) stream down the side of the ascent stage around 2mins into the flight, I had the 'go at throttle up' Challenger moment in my mind as I do on most launches, and then I saw what looked like an irregular pattern to the exhaust plume. Moments after, the big white cloud.  Which to me (I am no expert) signals a break up as opposed to an explosion. 

Perhaps the two positives of this happening now are that this was unmanned, and that the data and HD video available to do the investigation is several orders of magnitude greater than with previous launch failures.

RCAF No.424 Squadon CC130 Tail number 307

The RCAF was doing SAR training drops at a local airport this afternoon. I shot a few images on approaches and when they did jumps (teeny tiny far away in sky). After the Hercules landed, a Captain wandered over to the fence line and asked me if I got any good pics. I said a few. He then asked if I had ever been on board before and I told him that when I was in the Reserves back in the day there was no budget for Herc training. :) He told me to come back in an hour after they had lunch. The navigator, another Captain, then gave me a personal tour of the Herc. Flight deck, interior of the fuselage and all. Talked about the extensive kit they have on board for the SARtechs. Then I was allowed to photograph the Herc on the apron before and after the engines spooled up (the latter at a safe distance). Later I re-positioned to the end of the runway (navigator... more »

Later I re-positioned to the end of the runway (navigator told me which end to be at), and the Herc took off over my head and even made a low pass back over the runway again - presumably not for my benefit, but I like to think so. :)

+Canadian Armed Forces  : My compliments to the aircrew of tail 307 for their hospitality and for an enjoyable couple of hours.  If you could pass that on, it would be great. Good to know there are aircrew like these folks doing what they do out there for Canadians. :)

The London Mechanics Institute Building, top floor detail. 
May 2015. 
The four story building was built in 1876 and is located at 229 to 231 Dundas Street, London. It is topped with four dormer windows seen here, and is full of ornate details and symmetrical designs that flank a central tower. 
 It is also illustrative of how older architecture can be incorporated into a streetscape and not be demolished just because it is old. It sits adjacent to the very modern London Public Library's Central branch.

This carved wooden sculpture depicts a pair of pandas looking up two trunks, one of bamboo, and one of maple that merge into a single canopy above. One of the many pieces by Winia, and others, that are in London.

Yeah. Been there, should have shot that.  If you think you should shoot something just do it at the time. Odds are, you might not head back that way again.

Compiled of deleted and alternate scenes, and skillfully edited together by fans, this 45min version of Blade Runner is really quite good. Worth a watch if you are a fan of the classic sci fi movie. 
(I suspect when this gets a wider circulation it might be taken down for copyright reasons)

Sweet cheddar n biscuits. Can you imagine?
"a full-frame 24-megapixel imager with a burst mode that captures 10 frames per second without autofocus enabled. The optically stabilized lens is a speed demon: It has a maximum aperture of f/1.7 and a wide-angle fixed focal length of 28mm. If that super-bright f/1.7 isn’t enough to capture images at the fastest shutter speed of 1/16000, rest assured the ISO ramps up to 50,000." -Wired

Shame that at $4200 USD it will be priced out of range for all but a few high end professional photographers with deep pockets - and sadly reality tv celebs who will by and large not appreciate what they have in their hands.

Excellent #TheTalkingRoom  w/ Adam Savage. He interviews author Andy Weir who wrote #TheMartian. I can relate to this guy. I love to research. Andy Weir, however, takes it to a whole new level. I have to read the book before the movie comes out. 
+Michael Interbartolo did you see this?

+Miley Cyrus is in the new +Paper Magazine with an interview and a photoshoot done by Paola Kudacki. Given the choice, I would photograph Miley over Kim K any day. She just seems more fun and open to goofy concepts and would be more laid back to be around.
Needless to say, this link is #NSFW  and contains nudity.

Wow. I had countless rolls of Kodachrome, Tri-X, and Velvia prints made at Blacks- the Yonge and Eglinton location in Toronto mainly, starting back in the mid 80s when I was still in high school. End of an era.  :/

Sometimes ending the weekend with some nice casual portraits, with no fuss no muss - and missing the rain, just hits the spot. :)

'Forest Meditation' with Corey, from June 2010. 
A print I picked up yesterday, just simply matted for a quick snap.
Censored for posting, it looks super in person.

+Bradley Horowitz,  I am by no means someone who jumps on the bandwagon when it comes to G+'s much discussed demise in the tech media. However, this seemingly small change, not being able to click on your name anymore is indicative of... something. It's for sure a retraction of the Google Plus branding. Clicking on my name when in Maps or Gmail etc, was something I used all the time, and was more than a convenience.  You were quoted recently telling Backchannel’s editor in chief Steven Levy: “No, Google Plus is not dead."  But something is going on. When will we know what it means?

Swing bridge over the Sydenham River.
Wallaceburg, May 2015.
It's a metal through girder, centre pier, swing bridge, locked in the open position to allow river traffic. Formerly carrying CSX and other rail traffic, the bridge serviced long closed industries such as Dominion Glass, Dominion Sugar, Schultz Die-Cast Company, Wallaceburg Brass and others.

I couldn't get a wide enough shot from a public vantage point to take in the whole bridge end to end, and was getting the eye from locals as I wandered around, so I ended up going up onto the closed tracks on the North side of the Sydenham and photographed from there.This full frame shot is a bit abstract, but I like it
