Sharp, originally uploaded by RLHyde.


So I've finally assembled the final pieces (to accompany the others) to become a certified shaving enthusiast. This is my new Merkur safety razor (the 38c variety). I haven't actually used it yet . . . that's what I'm going to do once I'm finished here.

1 sb600 camera right, 1/16 power, 1/2 CTO, through 12'' snoot.

Triggered with Cactus V4s.

I haven't posted the last couple of days because Kathleen and I went on a quick trip to Washington DC. She had business to attend to, but we found time for sight seeing as well.

This is the spiral staircase in the Supreme Court building. I'm pretty proud of myself for having steady enough hands at 1/30 shutter to get it to be this clear.

The Library of Congress is an absolutely gorgeous place. I highly recommend you go if you're ever in the DC area.

(By the way, this was taken on Friday, not Thursday. I did take a photo on Thursday, but I didn't like it. So here you go.)

Nearsighted, originally uploaded by RLHyde.


Kathleen and I have many pairs of glasses between us. Here are all of them. (If you look closer you can see all the distortions through the lenses more clearly).

Large and On Black.

This is just a little idea I've had bouncing around in my head for a few days.

You Seem to have Misplaced Your Spoon


Much better if you look closer.

Walking into the apartment today, Kathleen noticed this spoon wedged inbetween two of the pickets of our downstairs neighbor's patio fence. So I ran down and took a photo of it. Too good an opportunity to pass up.
