Eric Raeber1,157,357I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Portfolio: Light in Motion

These are my stories of imagination and dreams.  Not quite fact and not quite fiction, they represent the possible, the hopeful, sometimes the mysterious...

I believe albums are often the right way to present photos.  Since I'm unsure exactly what it will mean when the G+ photo capability, powered by Picasa, goes away, or what functionality in Google Photos might or might not replace it, I'll be sharing my albums to this collection in hopes of preserving them.  I hope you enjoy!

Orange Wine

From a recent wine dinner with Damijan, a producer from Northern Italy.  Orange wine is made from white grapes, but the juice spends maceration time in contact with the skins, unlike typical white wine production where they are quickly separated.

Giving Me the Eye

I found this tiny but beautiful frog in Ranomafana.  I'm almost tempted to alert the #gulluminati  to the possibility of a very sophisticated disguise, but maybe I'd better let this one go...

Forecast: Cloudy, with Rays of Hope
 
It was low tide last night at sunset.  I’m standing on the seawall that protects my little town; you can see the green algae-covered rocks that are covered twice a day.
 
The wall has already been deemed inadequate to protect us from rising seas and the possibility of more violent storms.  Long term weather and climate models remain highly imprecise, due to their great sensitivity to modeling assumptions, but their direction is clear: tens of millions of people at the very least risk being displaced over the coming century from coastal areas around the world.  Populated islands may be submerged or made uninhabitable.

Forecast: Cloudy, with Rays of Hope
 
It was low tide last night at sunset.  I’m standing on the seawall that protects my little town; you can see the green algae-covered rocks that are covered twice a day.
 
The wall has already been deemed inadequate to protect us from rising seas and the possibility of more violent storms.  Long term weather and climate models remain highly imprecise, due to their great sensitivity to modeling assumptions, but their direction is clear: tens of millions of people at the very least risk being displaced over the coming century from coastal areas around the world.  Populated islands may be submerged or made uninhabitable.
 
Land at the edge of the San Francisco Bay is pretty expensive by most standards; I’m fortunate to live in an area that can afford to take steps to mitigate, at least to a point, the effects of the sea – and of course I’ll end up paying my own share of that tab.  I’m even more fortunate that my town has generally proven itself competent at planning ahead, and that we have already launched a project to define and implement what protection we can against the risks of man and nature.  Of course, earthquake is probably our greatest risk in the near term; climate change is a longer term problem, but with substantial and enduring effect.
 
What of the places that are unable to afford major changes, or to plan effectively to protect their population from the sea and other impacts?  Even our local planning may need to encompass not only geology, meteorology and engineering, but also demographics and the future of human migration.  And as the river mouths, bays and harbors to which people have long gravitated for access to trade start to become problematic residences, we need to expect upheaval in our infrastructure around real estate, transportation and more.
 
How do we develop strategies for coping with dramatic change?  What I do in my own life, and what my town is engaged in now, is to think in terms of scenarios.  It doesn’t matter only what you believe is likely about climate change, your nation’s politics or economy, or the impact of artificial intelligence on human civilization; what also matters is: what a) could happen; b) that would matter to you; and c) that you can do something about.  As you start to lay out the possibilities, you’ll discover that some problems aren’t worth addressing until they appear, while for others, some simple action far in advance may be a wise choice.  Some solutions will be beyond your reach, but, in many cases, you and those around you may be able to maintain your own little wall against the rising sea.

This woolly-looking Verreaux's sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi) was keeping an eye on the paparazzi while his friends went wandering through the trees for breakfast.  Photographed in the Berenty Reserve; pretty much all of the lemurs are considered endangered due to habitat loss, though there are a few spots like this one where they are reasonably well protected locally.

This woolly-looking Verreaux's sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi) was keeping an eye on the paparazzi while his friends went wandering through the trees for breakfast.  Photographed in the Berenty Reserve; pretty much all of the lemurs are considered endangered due to habitat loss, though there are a few spots like this one where they are reasonably well protected locally.

My whole Madagascar album is at https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5933913563025170673 ; prints available at http://www.alexlapidus.com .

I believe albums are often the right way to present photos.  Since I'm unsure exactly what it will mean when the G+ photo capability, powered by Picasa, goes away, or what functionality in Google Photos might or might not replace it, I'll be sharing my albums to this collection in hopes of preserving them.  I hope you enjoy!

I was very happy to see this tapir couple (the female is looking at us) in the southern Amazon.  These are South American Tapirs (Tapirus terrestris), and I hadn't realized how much time they spend in the water until we watched them for awhile.  The species in considered vulnerable due to poaching and habitat destruction; we were very fortunate to see them in a couple of different regions.

Antarctica

Many of you may have seen this album or collection before, but I want to be sure to include it with the rest.  The trip was many years ago, but still vivid in memory!

I believe albums are often the right way to present photos.  Since I'm unsure exactly what it will mean when the G+ photo capability, powered by Picasa, goes away, or what functionality in Google Photos might or might not replace it, I'll be sharing my albums to this collection in hopes of preserving them.  I hope you enjoy!

My Friend the Rock

I'll share another small album tonight; I have this...relationship...with this rock on Four Mile Beach. It's hard to explain, but hopefully the photos convey what I mean :-).

I believe albums are often the right way to present photos.  Since I'm unsure exactly what it will mean when the G+ photo capability, powered by Picasa, goes away, or what functionality in Google Photos might or might not replace it, I'll be sharing my albums to this collection in hopes of preserving them.  I hope you enjoy!

Diving

I'm usually too busy diving to shoot, but every now and then I grab a camera.  A couple of these are photos of me by other people.

Presence|Absence

Alien abduction seems like such a simple thing.  Someone is here with us, and then they're not.  But photography exposes the sophistication and complexity of the many methods used in this corner of our little galaxy: the shifting and melding of space and time; the quantum juxtaposition of different entropic states; the connections between the dimensions we experience directly and those that our mathematics can barely express.
Happy #alienabductionfriday !

I found plenty of variety; a great learning experience for me, though I wouldn't make a regular thing of it.
