The Watchdog

I went on a local cemetery romp about an hour before sundown yesterday with a couple of off-camera Nikon SB-910 flashes and my MagMod flash modifiers. For this shot, I intentionally underexposed the scene to give it a nighttime feel, then lit the dog grave ornament and the area behind it using 2 stacked MagGrids mounted on a single flash. I believe it was set at 1/2 power.

Memorial Day

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
— Joseph Campbell

Here in America, we are observing Memorial Day today — a national holiday that recognizes and remembers those who died in the service of our country’s armed forces. Originally known as Decoration Day, it is traditional for people to visit the graves of those who died in service and to decorate those graves with small American flags. It is a day in which we honor and show gratitude to those who gave their lives so that the rest of their countrymen could continue in theirs.

Make Your Sad Go Away

“The man walked past me and stopped, observing the blood running down my neck.

“Your injury. Let us tend to it.” He looked out through the open doorway and silently gestured to someone out there. “Our world,” he said, “is far more advanced than yours. For reasons you’ll understand shortly.”

A thin, bony, naked woman entered the room, carrying two small, white kittens. She sat one of the fluffy cats in my lap and stuffed the other down my shirt. She turned and left.

“There,” said the large man. “The kittens will make your sad go away.”

-― David Wong, John Dies at the End
