They built a large ferris wheel in downtown Atlanta called the SkyView and it’s pretty cool. At about 20 stories high, it’s pretty large. I was there for the opening, but didn’t get a chance to ride it because of the poor weather. But I did get my camera out.

My friend asked me to help him get a video ready for a trade show he was entering in Atlanta. The trade show was a week away. Without enough time to get footage of the bird feeder in action, I came up with this instead.
If you’re interested in purchasing one, go here.
Yep, life-time long Lions fan here. When my friend went to Oakland University which was a mile away from the Pontiac Silverdome, he stayed in line overnight to get us front row seats to every game for four years, and they were great years with Barry Sanders as the running back. But this team…ugh. It’s getting difficult not to just give up on the NFL.
This is a video I made for the Dorito’s Crash the Super Bowl contest. Winners have yet to be decided, but I think we have a decent chance based on previous winners.
I’m still working on the photos I took while shooting this spider.
This one was shot with a 100mm macro with an extension tube. Then I cropped the photo. I don’t know how people know which percent it was cropped so I don’t know how to tell you. I just know that this is about a third of the original size.

I met someone during my last job and they had a Rubik’s cube on them. I noticed him solving it repeatedly so I asked him how he was doing it. He was nice enough to show me the tricks. Then my brother wanted to know how, but he lives ten hours away. So I decided to make a video for him. Before I did though, I went online and found a bunch of other videos about how to solve it. Most are poorly shot in low res and the ones that aren’t are too long. I even feel mine is too long, but even if I didn’t explain it, it takes me almost five minutes to solve it. So I think a ten minute video is acceptable.
Please keep in mind, even if you know the tricks, it’s difficult. It takes a lot of practice and patience. It took me two full days until I had it down. The guy that showed me told me it took him a whole week.
This past St. Patrick’s Day eve, my friend invited me to come hang out with him and his family to watch his new Celtic band Banna perform. Celtic music isn’t my cup of stout, but I had a good time. The band was good and festive and there was Guinness.
While the band performed, I took some pictures. Below are some of my favorites.
