EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off a three year managerial stint, your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is back on the street and under heavy deadline. As the numbing effects of his self-imposed containment wear off, vexing reflections and pithy epistles are sure to follow...

One Frame at a Time


"Hey, how do you get all those cool pictures for your blog?"

Well, I take them. Inspired by the self-portraiture of the great beFrank, I've been stretching the abilities of my modest digital camera for quite a while now. As a result, I spend as much time with my one good eye jammed into its tiny viewfinder as I do dissecting the professional imagery of my fancycam's high-tech eyepiece. Is it any wonder my vision's so increasingly weak? Probably not, but then again skewed eyesight is just another occupational hazard of the photog set. Actually, it fits in quite well with the jaded life perspective and abundance of logowear, but that's another blog-post. Speaking of which, thanks to Ken 'bluedog photog' Cravens for snapping this pic at the recent El Ocho lens summit and giving me something to share on an otherwise mundane hump-day. But, c'mon Kenny - couldn't you have at least photoshopped in a bit thicker hair before sticking it on-line? See if I share my granola with you at the next hurricane...

It was good seeing you again last night at the meetup. BTW, how often is your visage compared to Spielberg?

Lenslinger said...

I get called 'Speilberg' by strangers pretty regularly. Teh ever-present oversized lens doesn't help. All in all, I'd feel better about the comparison if the award-winning director were more atractive. Ah, vanity...

Don't take this the wrong way, but I think you're fetching, particularly as you smolder with anger about being part of the myopic MSM.

When you get it figured out how to make the receding hairline not so receding drop me a note.
