Jeff Smith61,660Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for *December 2/12* _PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR THIS SUNDAY, NOV. 25/12._ Theme: *Bond, James Bond!* I want to see Selfy's that are inspired by *007* and the James Bond films. Lots exotic locations, action packed chases as well as numerous villains and sexy leading ladies to offer inspiration here. Or just stick to a more general "SPY" or cloak and dagger noire theme. Either way it should be fun. _Props may come in handy here!_ ________________________________ The Halloween SSP was the scariest, most ghoulish, terrifying Selfy Sunday ever. The submissions were amazing. Well done everyone. As always I want to thank +LaDonna Pride    for all of her hard work and she will be helping along the way as our co-host.  Thanks everyone we are all looking forward to some great Selfies. Selfy Sunday FAQ can be found here. http://goo.gl/ngQeF Please check there first if you have any questions. Thanks _____________________ UPLOADING The event will open for uploading at 9:00 PM EDT. You can upload your photo by viewing the event and clicking on the "Add Photos" button. This is a Public event open to everyone. Any questions, again please check the FAQ or let myself or LaDonna know. Or check the +Selfy Sunday    page for updates. Cheers and have fun!

Autumn Spark

Revisiting an older shot.  I'm guessing the original was probably Kodak Gold 800 print film, maybe 1/4 second (?) handheld.  Dad was burning some leaves (hey, it was over 20 years ago) and I threw a couple sparklers in to the pile.

I'm hoping this works if I share. Looks like photospheres don't work properly on the phone or in google photos anymore. Not sure why things at #google seem to be breaking more often. Not encouraging.

Greg

Nothing like family to give you practice for portraits.  Family camping trip a couple months ago and my son Greg came.  The more I look at this picture I took, the more I like it.  My main lens is in the shop so I was using an old Nikkor AF 50mm 1.8.  The camera won't drive the aperature, so I shoot wide open with it.  Not ideal in all situations, but in bright lighting allows for some very nice portraits and bokeh. 

When they are teenagers our children drive us to exasperation sometimes, but as adults they become amazing to us.  Greg is currently working on opening a Float Center in Madison, Wisconsin sometime this fall.  He's been busy with plans, funding, and fielding media interviews around the state.  His website it http://www.floatmadison.com.

Kate's Pizza Amore

A couple of weeks ago a web design company called me about a picture I had taken when my wife and I were traveling in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and asked about licensing the picture for a website they were designing.  The interior was interesting, so I had asked they waiter if I could take a couple pictures.  I posted one of them on G+ a couple of years ago.  After some negotiation, I sent several pictures I had taken.  They used one of the other pictures for the main picture on the website.  Kind of neat to have a picture on a website other than one of my own for once.

Dad's new van

Dad in his second VW van on one of our Wisconsin camping trips.  I'm thinking this was right after he bought it around 1971-73, because the tire hasn't been mounted to the front yet.  Still working my way through all the pictures we found in the drawers when we cleaned his house out. Taken with a #kodak   #instamatic   110 camera, exposure not recorded, lol.

Headshot

On Facebook, my son says "Anybody able to take a professional head shot of me by Saturday?"  Well, I think I know a guy.  We met up on my daughter's moving day and found several different brick buildings nearby for backdrops on a nice sunny day.  Gee, where does he get those good looks from?

He's working on opening a float center in Madison, Wisconsin, www.floatmadison.com and needed the pic for a health magazine article he will be in this summer.  Can't wait to go floating.

Microsoft has identified a potential security concern with Office365

I was opening one of my OneNote notebooks from Office365, hosted on a Microsoft server, and received the warning below.  Made me stop and think for a moment.  Is Microsoft worried that Microsoft is a security risk? 
I know, it's a bit more nuanced than that, but sometimes taking things at face value is funnier.

Geek Out

I have a suspicion they may be something seriously amiss with myself.   I was in the garage, replacing the carburetor on my lawnmower, chatting on geekslife.com, watching Windows Weekly on twit.tv, and in the Twit chatroom, when I realized.  This may not be normal.  I think the picture speaks for itself.

My parents acting weird 

That's the caption written on the back by my teen self in 1976. I was sitting here a little while ago and this picture fell off my bulletin board onto the floor under my desk. Thought maybe it was time to scan it before it got lost. A bit grainy picture from a Kodak 110 camera, printed I'm sure at Fotomat.  I'm sure the negatives are in a drawer somewhere.

Say Cheese

Is it just me or doesn't it seem like the person getting his picture taken should be in front of the falls, not in front of the door?

Oh, that's right, I left them in the Caribbean on the table, at Gordon's on the Pier.

Hotel Boulderado

When I was first looking for a hotel, I laughed at the name.  It sounds like it should be a movie name "Boulderado".  http://boulderado.com/  We loved the hotel.  Not the usual run of the mill, decorated by the thousands room.  The lobby is beautiful and you can even have the elevator operator take you up in the original elevator.  We stayed in the new wing, but they kept decor to match the original portion of the hotel, and was very romantic as our room was a corner room with 12(?) foot ceilings and eight(?) foot french doors looking west and north, with views of the mountains.  When I looked it up after we came home, I found several references to guests who seem to never have left some of the rooms, even after they have left this earth (if I had known, I would have at least gone walking around the original hotel portion a bit more, just for the fun).  Close t... more »

It's time to do a little re-arranging of my photos here on G+.  Things have been a bit haphazard and not quite as intended.  I should have kept arranging things like this from the beginning.  Here for starters is some color.

Summer is coming

We're getting the campsites reserved for the first outing this summer.  Last year was the first time in over thirty years I've slept in a Westy.  My dad owned three and when he passed, I became the owner of his last one.  I can't wait to get back out on the road.  I keep debating whether to keep it all original, or change things. No matter what, it feels like home.

An all time favorite pic from my own.  I've had this as my lock screen for quite a while.  I love the serendipity of finding a classic car show while just driving around.
