(You know what to do.)


Top row, L to R: Hanging dog, ripperlyn and pagoda, street scene
Middle row, L to R: capitalflash and sparklepbass, impix and shniggit through a very foggy lens, some fishy-looking person in a hat
Bottom row, L to R: impix being unselfconsciously beautiful, happy people, strange monkey-like boy-touching between shniggit and culturedgoat

(If any of the featured participants would like high res versions, holler and I'll e-mail them to you.)

If you would ever like to go on a photo expedition with me and practice with it, let me know. Once I get a tripod, indoor shooting without a flash will be easier too. Photo expeditions inside the flat, whee!

Which ones would you like? I ask because they are quite big (around 1.5-2 MB each) so assuming your inbox has message size limits I may have to send more than one e-mail.

I don't mind either. I'm not sure, but I think she cuts capitalflash's hair as well as her own.

I think your dog was probably more traditional, though.

Kung Hei Fat Choi/Gong Xi Fa Cai/Happy Chinese New Year!

May you have good fortune this year (and many Lai Si/Hong Bao envelopes) :)

It is interesting to now be part of the giving side of the family, rather then the receiving. Although Jasmine, will sure get some on her one month anniversary.

Happy New Year, Proud Dad! (And family, too, of course.)

We can't wait to meet Jasmine. Marco will probably be going to the States in late February or March. He's planning to take an extra week to visit people in SD so we hope he can see you and Jade and baby.

It looks like such a fun time. Would have enjoyed being a fly on the wall...hanging around and giggling, occasionally futzing w/ folks' hair :)

I'm afraid you mightn't be able to futz with the hair. They're all carefully sculpted works of art, you see.

Rats. I'd suggest 'nibbling on earlobes?', but as I'd still be a fly, that might be ucky.

It's amazing how you can get such clear shots. Even if I have my camera steady, I can't get people to be still long enough.

Continuous auto-focus helps. So does upping the ISO (although I don't like to go over 400 because of noise). But mostly people weren't moving around too much. Except for the occasional motion of arms, bringing pint to lips.

Fun! BTW, I love impix's hair. I've been trying to accomplish that tossled shaggy look for years and still haven't figured how to do it.

Hm, your hair isn't very wavy naturally, though, is it. I believe hers is, and she also bleaches/dyes it, which changes the texture as well as the depth of color and makes it have more body. You might be able to "roughen" your hair a bit by lightening the top layer?

I was thinking the same thing. My hair doesn't do wave well, but it was unexpectedly obedient when I had it bleached. Hem, your hair doesn't look very bleached yet... ;) I've had unexpectedly good results by having my hair at very different lengths, but I'm also thinking that maybe it's time to admit defeat and go for a new hair style.

I know. I keep meaning to do it, but for me, that means a trip to the hairdresser. I don't trust myself to bleach my own hair. And I keep finding other things on which to spend my money.

Bottom left is a good argument for unposed photography.

Thanks. I didn't put these up thinking that they were great photographs, although taken together, I think they convey the atmosphere and energy of the evening pretty well. Except for that one, which I do think is pretty good.
