This is a small collection of photos I took on a drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco on the Pacific Coast Highway.
We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards. Abe Stanway, the creator of Commit Logs from Last Night, actually gives a pretty compelling, and serious, Ignite talk on the functionality of profanity for developers here:
Last week, we received a very interesting, if not amusing, bug report:
"I just wanted to let you know that the reason why deviantART's CSS isn't loading properly for some people is because one of
About this Nicolas Cage situationEdit: I've just woken up to a night's worth of replies to this journal and people have made a great point about the fact that I could put these deviations in storage until the situation has ended, which I just have. If you are new to the conversation and wonder what kind of deviation we're talking about, they are the same kind of montages seen on that blog: http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/
As you can easily guess from the stats on my profile, I don't post very often. I try to, because it's important to use the website I help build. So when last year, for fun, I made these montages I thought it might make people I'm in touch with on dA laugh, or at least smile at the absurdity of them. And some did. When I submitted them, fourteenthstar and her team saw that they could be controversial and they were discussed during a meeting with her team. I had submitted the images with default settings, so they made me disable prints immediately. That made total sense to me, I felt stupid f

Someone on the Internet thinks what you're doing is stupid or evil or it's all been done before -- make good art." Neil Gaiman
Street Portraiture and Zoom LensStreet Photography
Street Portraits, Using Zoom Lens, and a Feature.
Street Portraiture, I believe, can be a great companion piece to Street Photography.
There, I've said it.
What usually ensues right after I've made the above statement is either a short and simple, "Yeah sure, Khuram.", or a nice, long, and intellectually saturated lecture
that I'm too obtuse to grasp, and a lot of big words in between that I'm too lazy
to look up in the dictionary.
Many discussions (some more passionate than others - I know, I was involved in one, and it was anything but romantic) are based on the fact that Street Photography is all about interactions between the subject and the environment.
At this point I'm left wondering, 'what part of Street Portraiture being, a great companion piece to Street Photography, do they not understand?'
Then there's that issue with your subjects posing:
In Street Portraiture too, you cannot just walk up to someone and ask for their photograp
