World's first? Wimax for train commuters

Argh! Stop this devilry! I <em>know</em> I should buy a PowerBook to profit from wireless internet (yes, I also know you can buy 'laptops', but they are lame)!

Hmmm... The good ol' taste of being busy. Good idea for a novel.

Seriously though, just hang in there. It has got to be over soon, or else there's something awry wrong!

A short film of Squeak and Lotty

How a blog can go from web development and design to movies of sleeping little dogs with silly score.

And what did they pay you for this plug? ;)

Nah, Dunst, they're cute. Enjoy that for now :P

Lotty and Dotty

Dunstan, some well-deserved revenge? I almost felt Scrap was getting too much attention, this is a good comeback.

Now, who was it who said that this would turn into a photolog? Well? I think…

Scrap lying on his back

:D Your conversations all go via the blog? ;)

Scrap is indeed one cool dawg, but I don't know how the others feel like this, as Nikita does point out there. Dunstan, can you enlighten us on this…

It's starting to feel more 'Dunstan' already! But you have some outrageously handy backdrops. I always try to take pictures of my cat when he's on his back, but for some reason he always does it…

Congratulations, my man! That's awesome. How about the GF, by the way? (Or is that a touchy subject? :P)

And what an amazing info graphic as well :)

I love soliciting

The colours are beautiful, especially when you think about it - someone was in a strange mood and chalked it up there. Still pretty genious.

Sorry, accidentally skipped the line saying what photo it was manipulated from. Never mind!

I like it. What have you manipulated exactly? Just colours etc, or really a retouching job?

Rise of the kaddle

Beauty. And Darryl's right. Don't question art, it expresses itself once, and everyone has to understand it on his own.

But really, wonderful picture.

SBC Park

It looks funky, but the idea is there ;)
If you could do this perfectly, it would be astonishing, but then again, it would seem as just an ordinary big photo (with wide lens, that is).

This is so cool, you should really post a tutorial on this. It just has something special, and that's probably the trick too... *shrugs*

Taken from the almighty colophon:
"The photos on this site are almost all taken using a Canon EOS 10D digital SLR, with a Canon EF 28-135/3.5-5.6 image stabilized USM lens, and a 1GB CF card."

This would suit as a great photo for a masthead. It's so perfect. Clear, bright and sharp. You should integrate a photolog!

Rubber ducks

That explains a lot. Photoshop loves RAW, and so do I. Reminds me, I need a camera of my own too (just can't take the family camera with me all the time). Any recommendations?

Did you optimize this? They looks so nice and crisp.

And it's a good composition, too.
