Whew, back online again. Had a mysterious modem failure during the day yesterday, when I was away—the house has a backup generator and there weren't any storms in the area, but the modem was kaput when I returned home last night.
To its credit, Time Warner Cable sent a technican pronto and I'm back up and running again—with speeds up to 60 Mbps next to the box, and 48 Mbps down here on the front porch a.k.a. the office (or, as I like to call it, the Official Office).
I'll catch up on comments next.
A few random recent snaps:
These two are drive-bys, but I like the second shot, simple though it is.
This last picture, taken at the Corning Museum of Glass, is the sort of thing photographers get no credit for. Because the whole point is the artwork, and the artist is responsible for that. The photographer steps aside and takes a supporting, backstage role, letting the star of the shot shine, so to speak.
Still, it's not always easy to get a good shot of someone else's artwork; I took several shots each of five different views of this one, and worked on preserving the "floating" quality of the lovely luminous colors in this piece. The piece is "Blood Sugar" by British artist Tony Cragg, born 1949. It's not actually easy to photograph because your experience of it changes so much as you move around it. There are hundreds of possible ways to show it.
