Given to fly

He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee

A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, “Hey, look at me now”
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh, power, oh

I’m not a huge Pearl Jam fan, but this song strikes a chord in me that I can’t explain, especially when it hits the above section.

Haven’t listened to Yield in years so I popped it in the CD player tonight and had forgotten how much I like this album, uh, CD. Great music to accompany me in my task of converting my thousand plus RAW nikon images to jpg. I think this is a teaser for my stint in Hell.

RAW compromise

May 6, 2006 at 9:37 pm (Pablum)

One of my biggest concerns with my RAW images is the fact that I want to start printing large versions of some of them for artwork around the house (or as gifts to family). RAW lets me create wickedly large TIFF files that are good for this.

I think it is safe to say that not all my RAW images are hang-worthy, so I’m going to go through and only keep the really good RAW files, convert and save the rest.

Sigh, RAW vs. JPG round 2

May 6, 2006 at 9:11 pm (Pablum)

I can’t get away from this. I had switched to jpgs for a week or so and went right back to RAW.

I am right back on the verge of going back to all jpg. I took about 150 jpg shots today and I everything went well.
