Charles Strebor (Rantz)25,693An evening of friends playing with fire and light for photographic purposes. We shall dine and sup and meander and rejoice and giggle and guffaw and wander and play.  There is never enough play. We shall gather well before sunset so as to identify appropriate spaces for playing with fire and light in order to make awesome images. Please bring food and drink to share, cameras for making images and any fire and other light equipment that you may have for a proper exploration of the photographic possibilities of Kalinga Park.Fire Spinning & Light Play2015-08-29 17:00:0010

NovoPulp1,244The Second North Flea Market in Copenhagen Sat June 13th 11:00 - 15:00 I found out at Fantasicon that this event was going on, where people turn up to sell things to the public that they would otherwise sell online. It seems to have attracted the entire sci-fi scene down here in Copenhagen so I'm going to take the NovoPulp stall down there. So far over three thousand people have said they will be attending the event, so it should help to gain us some exposure and give us a chance to the learn new things. I will be taking photos throughout the day and uploading them to the event page. So even if you can't make it you can feel as if you were there. See you at the market! :D Niamh BrownNovoPulp at Nørd-loppemarked 2 Photo Diary by Niamh Brown2015-06-13 11:00:005

Charles Strebor (Rantz)25,693I'll be celebrating my 50th trip around Sol in January 2015 and I would very much enjoy your company. We'll be starting at 4ish in the afternoon and going on late into the evening with fire spinning and other light play once the darkness arrives. Please bring yourselves, your cameras, a favourite dish that you'd like to share with others, your favourite drinks and any spinning toys you may have.  And orbs.  Don't forget your orbs. We'll be gathering where Warragul Road and Beach Road meet, down on the beach around the shelter near  the pier and groyne. With many thanks to @111907656136306657088 for the banner for this event - I'm sure you'll recognise the fire spinner from our #BrunswalkWithFire  from 2013. The Rantz and the Mario will be doing special fire play - just because we can. More details as they happen to be known. PS - There are *_THREE_* pubs nearby.A Celebration of the end of the 50th trip around Sol2015-01-17 16:00:0034  
Paul Pavlinovich24,112Now that summer is nearly here I think it's time to return to St Kilda for a summer meander. Have some munchies before the walk. We'll have the usual wander and click but if anyone wants to wander with me I'm happy to explain what I'm doing and why. If the light and sea are favourable I'll be using black glass for long exposures near the pier. I may use it again at Luna Park to make people "go away" for the facade shot. Depends how much light there is. features will include - beach front walk - sunset by the pier - a visit to the penguins at the end of the pier - Luna Park after dark - The espy facade and the two esplanades https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z58dq65KDHgk.ka252xbBiZq4 Event updated with the meeting place (St Kilda Marina) and a link to the walk map.summer evening photo walk2014-12-05 19:00:0023  
Paul Pavlinovich24,112You may shoot 36 compositions on this photowalk. you may shoot film or digital it's up to you but only 36. Can you do it? Shooting only 36 will make you really look, evaluate, think "do I really need this shot?". It will make you more deliberate. It will make you hunt for the best light and the best subject matter. You'll find it hard. You'll find it frustrating. You'll find it rewarding. You may post process via traditional or digital darkroom if you choose. If you're shooting HDR you may bracket but you must only end up with 36 images after post. I'll lead a walk around Melbourne (botanic gardens, observatory, the shrine, arts centre, ending for munchies and drinks on Southbank). If you can't walk with us, please shoot the 36 anywhere you want and share the 36 to this event. Worldwide. Go for it. The 36 photowalk - where will you shoot yours?2014-08-31 14:00:0050

Charles Strebor (Rantz)25,693Ready for another spin?  Yeah - I thought you were. _I've had a change in plans: I'll be in Melbourne again sooner than expected.  Might as well have a bit of spin, yes?_ Come one - come all: you'll get to see @111907656136306657088 do her best not to become _BBQ Fran_ and as there are no bodies of water in the area so she won't be able to push me in the drink, though I'm sure she'll be able to convince me to have a drink. I look forward to seeing you there.Sunday Poi Play2014-05-11 16:00:0026

Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych464,056It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00161  
Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych464,056On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time. For more information, including specific timezones and best countries to view from see NASA's website here: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2012/TSE2012.html #sciencesunday    #solareclipse   #eclipse   #NASA   @109783903175191665261 Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00133

Jacob Dix37,043Post your sky images here. Comment on other's sky images. Mobile, DSLR, film are welcome. Have fun. The sky is beautiful.Sky 3!2012-09-29 00:30:0033  
Steve Johnson33,637... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion. Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments.  Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to: Composition The horizon a third from top or bottom Left/right mirror symmetry is to be avoided The odd number rule Rule of thirds Technical Use of on camera or undiffused flash Wideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past) Editing Oversharpening Over-saturating (Just about over-anything really).  Other Shooting down at kids, pets or flowers. These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments. One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0033  
Jacob Dix37,043OK, sky lovers, share what's above you. Share your most beautiful image of the sky. Blues, oranges, reds, yellows, even greens, though it's rare. Let's have a look! Mobile or DSLR!

Jacob Dix37,043For some time now I have been doing a project, an experiment, an exploration, a study in light. My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called *Sky*: http://goo.gl/phGuR Forget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people. It is the most challenging palette of light there is. Let's see 'em! You have a full day and a half! Please spread the word too.Sky!2012-09-02 00:00:0023

10 Common Myths ABout Circumcision

Throughout the ages, circumcision has been surrounded by myths, lies, and unbelievable claims. Like the health tonic & elixir salesmen of the 19th century, those who promote circumcision promise to prevent disease while downplaying risks. Here are some of the most often repeated claims.

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

terraPin, a 120 Film Pinhole Photography System

The terraPin Pinhole Camera is unlike any other pinhole camera, 3D printed or otherwise. Developed after years of experience designing and constructing pinhole cameras, the terraPin is intended to be very easy to assemble, modify, and hack. Derived from the P6*6, the terraPin also uses 120 film, with a 6 X 6 cm frame, like the Holga, Hasselblad, and other classic medium format cameras. Dozens of P6*6 pinhole photographers around the world provided input and feedback to help shape the terraPin.

"For, you see," said the Illustrated Man, "these Illustrations predict the future."

A beaut post from +Vicky Veritas on Bradbury's The Illustrated Man.

#SciFi   #ScienceFiction     #SpeculativeFiction  

The Illustrated Man

Published in 1951, The Illustrated Man is a book of dark and fantastic short stories by science fiction great, Ray Bradbury. Each story is tied together through the plot device of the illustrated man's tattoos, each one coming to life and telling a different story if you gaze upon them long enough. Don't look away. You might even glimpse your own demise.

"What seems to be the trouble?" I asked.

For answer, he unbuttoned his tight collar, slowly. With his eyes shut, he put a slow hand to the task of unbuttoning his shirt all the way down. He slipped his fingers in to feel his chest. "Funny," he said, eyes still shut. 'You can't feel them but they're there. I always hope that someday I'll look and they'll be gone. I walk in the sun for hours on the hottest days, baking, and hope that my sweat'll wash them off, the sun'll cook them off, but at sundown they're still there." He turned his head slightly toward me and exposed his chest. "Are they still there now?"

After a long while I exhaled. "Yes," I said. "They're still there."

The Illustrations.

"Another reason I keep my collar buttoned up," he said, opening his eyes, "is the children. They follow me along country roads. Everyone wants to see the pictures, and yet nobody wants to see them."

He took his shirt off and wadded it in his hands. He was covered with Illustrations from the blue tattooed ring about his neck to his belt line.

"It keeps right on going," he said, guessing my thought. "All of me is Illustrated. Look." He opened his hand. On his palm was a rose, freshly cut, with drops of crystal wake among the soft pink petals. I put my hand out to touch it, but it was only an Illustration.

As for the rest of him, I cannot say how I sat and stared, for be was a riot of rockets and fountains and people, in such intricate detail and color that you could hear the voices murmuring small and muted, from the crowds that inhabited his body. When his flesh twitched, the tiny mouths flickered, the tiny green-and-gold eyes winked, the tiny pink hands gestured. There were yellow meadows and blue rivers and mountains and stars and suns and planets spread in a Milky Way across his chest. The people themselves were in twenty or more odd groups upon his arms, shoulders, back, sides, and wrists, as well as on the flat of his stomach. You found them in forests of hair, lurking among a constellation of freckles, or peering from armpit caverns, diamond eyes aglitter. Each seemed intent upon his own activity, each was a separate gallery portrait.

"Why, they're beautiful!" I said.

How can I explain about his Illustrations? If El Greco had painted miniatures in his prime, no bigger than your hand, infinitely detailed, with all his sulphurous color, elongation, and anatomy, perhaps he might have used this man's body for his art. The colors burned in three dimensions. They were windows looking in upon fiery reality. Here, gathered on one wall, were all the finest scenes in the universe the man was a walking treasure gallery. This wasn't the work of a cheap carnival tattoo man with three colors and whisky on his breath. This was the accomplishment of a living genius vibrant, clear, and beautiful.

"Oh, yes," said the Illustrated Man. "I'm so proud of my Illustrations that I'd like to burn them off. I've tried sandpaper, acid, a knife . . ."

The sun was setting. The moon was already up in the East.

"For, you see," said the Illustrated Man, "these Illustrations predict the future."

Boys and girls alike
An un-consenting child, an unnecessary, invasive surgery: is there any moral difference between male and female circumcision?
by +Brian Earp 

In the 1990s, when the Canadian ethicist Margaret Somerville began to speak and write critically about the non-therapeutic circumcision of infant boys, she was attacked for even addressing the subject in public. In her book The Ethical Canary, she says her critics accused her of ‘detracting from the horror of female genital mutilation and weakening the case against it by speaking about it and infant male circumcision in the same context and pointing out that the same ethical and legal principles applied to both’.

All children have a right to bodily integrity: female, intersex, male - stop cutting childrens' genitals.

Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel's wing. That's what makes life fun. That you can make these decisions. That you can create the world that you want. La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy.

Every single thing in the world has its own personality - and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. Any little thing can be your friend if you let it be. In life you need colors. I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. It's a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky?___

What is circumcision?

Circumcision is a euphemism for genital cutting. The term “circumcision” is an attempt to conceal the unpleasant truth. The word “circumcision” only describes the act of cutting, meaning literally “to cut around.” The word “circumcision” ignores the fact that a person’s genitals are actually being cut.
