Mike, I am so happy for you (and for us). Can't wait to hear all about it.

Mike, I wish I could go, and I hope someday I can have an adventure like that. Short of me going I wish you would go. I can't think of anyone better to relay the experience in the written word. Go.

The other, practical aspect of taking pictures from a plane, at least if using an iPhone, is identifying location. Even in airplane mode the GPS keeps tracking.
Drone photography is going to make aerial photography accessible to a lot more people but until flying on commercial jet has been, for most of us, our only opportunity. I usually pick an aisle seat, but on certain routes I will forgo the comfort and choose the window. This is on our way back from Grenada a few years ago.
re: Matt Taibbi's description of Goldman Sachs, I think the comparison is unfair. Squid are wonderful animals, and an important contributor to the cycle of life on earth. Even vampires should take offense; they are largely misunderstood.

This reminds me of the first time I came across Fifth Third Bank. I thought it was a joke.

for all we know that chair's not even there, or red, or maybe it had a smiling guy sitting in it and it's green. I'm kidding, I'm kidding.

I am saddened by this news. The Luminius Landscape was probably the first photography website I read after graduating from the review and forum sites. I have two of Michael's prints; one purchased when he was doing a fundraiser for a friend who was battling cancer, the other as an entry into a sweepstake that would see the winner spend the weekend with Michael photographing at his lake cottage. I spent a lot of time daydreaming what that would be like. He seems to have lived life to the fullest and he is leaving a lasting and positive mark. I hope this will offer a small degree of comfort to those close to him.

"He loved hard light" That's a great quote. ["Hard" meaning contrasty, of course. --Mike] meaning difficult, for me, of course :-)

By the way, I hope you bought Harold's book when I recommended it. I did buy one, but only one :-( I also met Harold briefly at the gallery that published his book. I told him I was there thanks to TOP highlighting the book.
Gordon Lewis is the anti-GAS. Hopefully this article has ended the mental inventory of what I would sell to buy this camera and I can go back to taking some pictures.
like the old joke goes: what would you do if you won the Powerball jackpot? I'd pay off my debts. What about the rest? I'd tell them to wait.

I think I will leave this page open for someone to discover... Michel
Argh! I just bought the Oly 25mm used for 2.5x the price of this one. Oh well.
And for short they call it the Roid. Which for me does not create a positive association.
If you enjoy Conan O'Brien's sense of humour you might find clips of his visit to Cuba fun. There are a couple more that are not featured in this playlist. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVL8S3lUHf0QDcdBy2Vjx706EemjnE5Yg

Thank you for that post Mike. Makes me look at my house in a new light. I used to think its history was ho-hum; it was built in 1946 in a neighborhood where many houses are from the late 19th century. I hadn't thought about the context. Now I can wonder about the state of mind of the person who had it built. Also who were the first inhabitants, and what was their relationship to the war? I have been fortunate enough to encounter some of the previous occupants who lived here in the 60s and 70s, so this adds to the history of the house. Michel Barrington, RI [Hi Michel, I know your neighborhood--my brother lives there. Some interesting houses there for sure. --Mike]
I think the name Patience is appropriate for your new house.
so happy for you Mike. Congratulations. I am selfishly pleased with TOP's new location. We've been wanting to go visit Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen ever since they took in Agnes, the Cornish Hen we rescued from the streets of NYC. From there it will just be a short ride to TOP.

it's a relief to see that you are clear across the country. With your recent frequent trips to upstate NY, your silence on TOP since the weekend and the recent prison break in Dannemora, I was starting to think you might have been their getaway car!

holy crap that thing is huge! I know it's an apples to oranges comparison (or perhaps apples to spaghetti squash) but I can't help myself; my little Oly 17mm f1.8 (e-34mm) is 120g. I know, I know, DOF, half a stop, quality, etc. Not knocking it, just an observation.
Re: Peter Lik The quotes this guy gave the reporter are unbelievable (“Just a nice shot of Yosemite,” Mr. Lik said, summing up Adams’s work. “Right place at the right time.” and “Just a nice shot of Yosemite,” Mr. Lik said, summing up (Ansel) Adams’s work. “Right place at the right time.” He is like the Michael Scott of photography (albeit far richer).
