This is not a photo, I kid you not

Listen: I know enough about photography to be dangerous. (See related posts: The Nikon D-50 of Infinite Beauty and Pieces of the World)

HOWEVER: shooting great photos with a Nikon of Infinite Beauty is insanely simple compared to what this man did with an iPad, his finger and talent on loan from the gods. 

The artist is Kyle Lambert of the United Kingdom, which is not the same as Great Britain, which you probably know if you watch sufficient amounts of BBC, a requirement once Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the most epic Sherlock Holmes/KHAAAN! Known to Man, with nothing else on America Tee-Vee even coming close, not unless Bryan Cranston returns from the dead to put his Heisenberg hat back on. I was shooting for the comma record there, pretending to be a law student, but a 1L would have thrown it all off by boldly going with a semi-colon after the third comma, thus ruining the streak. I am undaunted and unbowed. And I will try again.

Greatest His, Literary Style:

Otter stacks cups, breaks hearts

This is a local otter, in the Tacoma, and I HAVE SEEN IT.

It may even be the same otter I shot (with the Nikon of Infinite Beauty). That photo got picked up by the world’s greatest collection of otter photos, maybe because it’s the only place on the web that obsesses about cute photographs of otters.

Here’s my photo.

yes, this is perhaps the same genius otter who stacks cups, or possibly his cousin, Harry, who'll never amount to much except being deadly cute.

Yes, this is perhaps the same genius otter who stacks cups, or possibly his cousin, Harry, who’ll never stack cups and will stick to busting oysters and breaking hearts. Photo by Guy Bergstrom.

And here’s the blog of otters, otters and, for variety, more otters.

Why a blog devoted entirely to photos of otters? Three reasons: (1)  why not? (2)  no animal is cuter than an otter and (3) you can’t spell awesomesauce without “aw.”

India is a different planet

I will now be somewhat Serious, which is quite rare, and may never happen again on this silly blog.

India may be the closest thing you can get to visiting another planet.

It’s a joke that every corner market sells bananas and cell phones. But there’s truth to that joke. More than 500 million people own cell phones and there’s a growing middle class to go along with a highly educated elite, which is just as creative as any other in the Western world.

Yet most of the population still lives in the countryside and is employed in agriculture. Just think of what will happen when they make the same shift we did in America, the mass migration to the factories to embrace horsepower instead of actual horses.

A hallway at the Red Fort, next to the Taj Mahal.

India is the world’s biggest democracy which only recently made the switch from state-run industry to a full market economy.

Time lapse photo goodness, set to music

Good photos, good music and amazing attention to detail.

I once rebuilt a carburetor for a 1971 Plymouth Fury III, and forever after that, the heavy green tank would stall at intersections, thus sealing my fate: I would never work as an engine tech at Les Schwab, much less change oil at Jiffy Lube. (Sidenote: I did used to change the oil, and replace things like alternators, without destroying the car or having it crush anybody to death.)

This man, now, truly knows what he’s doing. Well done, sir. Well done.
