I have got quite fond of visiting culture11 – from time to time. Not sure if it is coming or going. Seems, though, it will remain in some form. And while we are there this oddly compelling thought from Ladyblog.
The re-invention of instant film:
We aim to re-start production of analog INTEGRAL FILM for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010. We have acquired Polaroid’s old equipment, factory and seek your support.
Thanks Haru for the link.
Update 21:30 26/01/2009: I am currently uploading images, from today, to my archive at michaeljeans.com (you need to refresh the page to see new uploads).
To those observant of such stuff – my colour rendering can be flaky at the best of times. Over the past month I have moved from JPEG to RAW file capture when making images. I’ve had skirmishes with RAW files – and used them extensively in the past couple of years – but. I am a late bloomer. Letting go and just getting on with it is the way to go. No JPEG backup. Of course the resulting feeling is – why didn’t I do this back in March when I first got the K20D. The new regime will result in more consistency. It’s certainly lots of fun.
A crew comes off the water at the boat park, Lake Karapiro Domain, after their race at the commencement of the Cambridge Town Cup rowing regatta, this morning, Saturday the 24th of January 2009. For more info on things happening around Cambridge this weekend visit Cambridge NZ today.
Seems appropriate. For the record from HuffPo.

Andrew Wyeth has died at the age of 91. His sense of place and form has a special place in my approach to making images.
From the New York Times an extraordinary set of portraits Obama’s People by photographer Naday Kandar.
DTS in Ministry of Tourism speak stands for Domestic Tourism Survey and I have just done one – an experience both frustrating and illuminating. I say frustrating because it took ages – I am glad I had only made two trips within the survey specific period and stayed privately – otherwise we would have been at it all day. Illuminating because it helped focus my mind on the fors and againsts of ‘destination tourism’. More on this subject soonish.
No BDO for this enterprising young band, from Wellington, Burning Embers. They are in town today hawking their CD to shoppers and shops alike. Good for them. On first listen heavy rock in the tradition of lower North Island bands. Some of it reminding me of music I heard in the early ’70s. Oh yes, I did see Blerta live in The Square in Palmerston North at the time – if anyone is interested. There are even some photos about here – somewhere.
Visiting today, Friday the 16h of January 2009, Timoti Rangi with his band Burning Embers CD Rising From The Ashes.
There are a few more photos here.
