01:03 pm - Duh.

I don't normally cast insults at my ungulate cousins, however the deer we get around my office building do not represent the brightest bulbs in their species.

This one was standing so close, I coulda hit it with a tape dispenser (if I was the kind of person who threw tape dispensers at stupid deer.)

05:43 am - Thanks, Narratvie Clip Camera

Hm. I spent a few hours in NYC on Saturday, and I used the opportunity to stroll around wearing the Narrative camera. To my annoyance, either the camera fails to handle motion well, or I have developed a hobbledehoy gate that defies modern technology. Blur blur blur. This shot came out OK; walking East on 42nd Street at about 1:30 pm, between 6th and 5th Avenues.

I don't recall if I had any impression of why there are so few people in the image...the sidewalks had been more crowded back near Times Square, and became more crowded as I approached Grand Central Station. I suppose the touristy-types were across the street frolicking in Bryant Park.


Later on, I find this shot amusing: It's 7:30 and I'm looking out the window at the movie theater, waiting for my sister Katy to join me for the 8:00 pm showing of "The Boxtrolls." I like how the Narractive camera has positioned itself directly under the "Best Buy" store sign across the parking lot. Subliminal advertising!

01:30 pm - Another unfamiliar bird

I noticed this unusual bird in my backyard. Anyone know what kind it is? Mostly black and white, so perhaps it's a penguin. Or maybe this one is just into Beagle Boys cosplay.

Hmm...Beagle Boys cosplay. Is that a thing?

I hope the photos aren't too blurry. Perhaps I should have thought to zoom in a little more. Here's one of the uncropped images, for a perspective on what the camera was picking up.

06:53 pm - Buzzcocks NYC - Narrative Camera snaps

I also wore my Narrative camera, which randomly takes a snap every 30 seconds. Some shots came out fairly dramatic, if somewhat off-kilter:

Clear snaps of Chris Remington were also elusive; as you can tell from this shot, the auto-focus wanted to capture every detail of that speaker and its wires.

Danny Farrant was just a blur in most of the photos I took; got lucky this time.
