Here’s a self portrait. I used my fisheye lens attachment for most of the pictures on this trip to Netarts, OR. It’s a cheap way to get fisheye images without paying through the nose for a dedicated fisheye lens. Yes, there is some chromatic abberation and blurring but that just enhances the “snapshot from a cheap camera” appeal. It kind of looks like a Facebook pic since I’m holding the camera instead of using a tripod and cable release/timer, but I work with what’s available and I forgot my tripod this day.

The Sallie Ford show last night was excellent! Everyone should head over to their website and buy their EP, it’s quite good and also quite inexpensive. Check out their MySpace page to preview their work if you like.

If you’re into something more electronic check out Bears of Winter, this song is amazing.
