Oh Lensbaby, Can I Possibly Lurve You More?

I don't think so.

Now while the Lensbaby requires a DSLR, all you Point and Shoot Lovin', Non-Fish Eye Affordin', Awkward Peephole Usin', Gentle Viewers who want to make yourself and any friends you have left, look like..well....THIS can use the Lensbaby Super Wide Angle Adapater with your LITTLE POINT AND SHOOTS.

(I feel I'm leaving some of you behind on the excitement train here.)

lensbaby: neene's playground

Central Park as seen from the top of Rockefeller Center

neene has the coolest connection to the Park. There is a bench with her Dad's name on it near 84th on the east side.

Now to all your lensbaby enthusiasts who think you can just buy a lensbaby and scoot up and take the pic, you'll be SORELY disappointed because you'll need one of the wide angle adapters. WHY NOT BUY BOTH?

(You're welcome Kirsten and Sam.)

Requiem in Pace, Jason




In Memory of Jason Brengolini

There is, among my carny friends, a sense of family that you rarely see among such a large group of coworkers. Fictive kin are common and the loss of one reverberates as much as the loss of an immediate family member or, as often can be the case, moreso. It is a family of which I am terribly proud to be the tiniest part of.

My friend Carol contacted me and asked if I had any photos of Jason. I had seen chatter on facebook about his passing but didn't recognize his name until she told me. I looked and found that as often as I saw him (and he gently told me "I may not want to stand" where tons of steel was quickly moving into place) I didn't have THAT many photos because he was ALWAYS working his ass off. No greater tribute can a real carny have.

Jason Brengolini passed away this week of heart failure. He was 33 and leaves behind his wife, Jenn, and sons Jason (age 6) , James (age 2) and Jacob (age 1)
