Reelin’ in the Years – 1994

It’s 1994 and I’m 32 years old. Cruising along with my doctorate, living in Ottawa and spending some time in Toronto during the summer while my parents are away. Apartment living in Ottawa got pretty buggy at times, and my parents’ empty house was a welcome respite. Also, the spacious Toronto Reference Library had The Collected […]

Analog Phasers

Here’s a funny one from my past. The pic was taken sometime in the 1970s. I used to ski at this place almost every winter weekend, and during March Break. I was also a huge Trek fan, back when there was only one Trek, and maybe the cartoon. So here’s my childhood attempt to add […]

shake reduction

Here’s a sunset shot taken last Sunday. Lake Ontario near Cobourg ON. It’s handheld zoomed 48x, and my camera only has 12x optical. So there was some blur. I used Photoshop’s “skake reduction” (a new one for me) filter to fix it up. Pretty impressed with the results. Related articles CitizenSpark No. 1: Show us […]
