The glass wall behind this young woman is part of the 72nd St. IRT subway station that’s part of Verdi Square… She was walking very briskly indeed, though I certainly can’t blame her: even in the bright mid-day sunshine, it was cold and raw outside…

******************************

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

I posted one of the few photograps I have on my Tablet. We had a horrendous wind storm in Anchorage. Three 70′ pine trees were uprooted in our backyard and one hit our house and managed to take both the power cable and TV/Phone/Internet cable with it.

It may be another five days before we have electricity but hopefully it will be much sooner. But I don’t have any access to my primary computer and my photographs so this photo of our Shipperke is all I have to post. But she is very cute! :)

So, many apologies for no comments the last few days but my one Tablet’s battery only lasts about 3 ours so I’m very limited. I just got this back from a friend who charged it this afternoon… But I won’t be posting for a few days until my electricity comes back on.

Of course, that’s a long time for a Flickr Fanatic!

Be back as soon as I can…

Thanks, Doug.

Note: this photo was published in an undated (Mar 2010) "Visiting New York" blog titled "Entertainment: movie theaters."

Moving into 2012, it was also published in an Apr 9, 2012 blog titled "Schöne on side photos."

************************************************

As I approached the Loew’s movie theater on the east side of Broadway, between 83rd and 84th, I noticed this young woman standing in the street with what appeared to be the usual equipment of a survey-taker or political activist: clip-board, pen, brochures, etc.

Normally, someone like this will pounce on unencumbered pedestrians like me (as opposed to the woman and two young kids who had just walked past her) — and the opening line is usually something like, "Hi, sir, do you have a moment to help save the whales?" (if not the whales, they want to save the environment, the North Pole, the future of the Democratic Party, the rights of unborn crocodiles, or whatever else is in vogue this season).

But this woman paid no attention to me; indeed, she was looking completely away from all of the action, including me. And in retrospect, I don’t know if she was surveying, agitating, or politicking at all; for example, I have no idea what the long black cable is that she’s holding.

In any case, I took a "hip shot" of her as I walked past — i.e., simply pointed my camera, which was set to a wide-angle focus, in her general direction, and pressed the shutter button a couple of times. I then stopped and showed her the image in the camera’s LCD panel, and told her that if it wasn’t too badly framed and focused, it might show up on the Internet tonight.

So, Ms. Blonde Activist, if you’re looking: here it is!

Other stuff
For other Mirai Gaia powered websites, wait for the release announcements from each of my clients. Good Smile Company will be using this function for internal use initially this week.
Your generated email address is a secret – do not tell anybody apart from your best 2D friend. Anybody who gets hold of your secret email will be able to post things under account name.
If your secret email address was compromised (you wrote it on your forehead by accident for example) then go back to your Edit Profile page and generate another one email address – the previous one will be rendered unusable.
The subject of the mail is used as the title of your post. If you forget to add a subject then the server date is used.
Your post should show up in a few seconds after you sent the mail – a bit longer for mails with more than a handful of images.
You can send up to about 30 images up to a total of 10MB.
No limit to what you can post – just be sensible.
The body of the mail is used for the description of the post.
You can use the poll and youtube syntax in the body of the mail like:-
[poll=1265029467670]Is Nanoha a cutie?:Yes:You bet[/poll]
and
[yt=youtubedhere]
You can post many polls in a single post – just make sure the poll id is unique for each poll like "poll=uniqueid_here_and_can_be_anything"
So for example:-
[poll=1265029467670]Question goes here?:Answer1:Answer2[/poll]
You can set the category of the post by adding a [cat=urlcode] in the body. For example:-
[cat=figures]
[cat=dollfie]
[cat=otaku]
If you want to post into another specific category, then you need to have a look at the url category code. So for example:-
www.figure.fm/page/en/post/all/figures/all/all/all/publis…
The url category code here would be "figures" so:-
[cat=figures]
If you want to keep your post hidden after you post it so that you can edit it manually after, all you need to do is add a [visible=false] to the email body.
So an example mail I would compose would look like:-
A photo of Nanoha looking cute.
[poll=1265029467670]Is Nanoha a cutie?:Yes:You bet[/poll]
[cat=dollfie]

After attaching a few images and hitting send, a few seconds later, your post will appear on figure.fm. It will be posted under your account name and you can go in and edit as usual.Just one thing to keep in mind. Even though you can create posts from photos taken on your mobile, please try not to post anything blurry meaning that you should not be intoxicated or playing with your dolphin while taking photos which would cause blur. You especially don’t want to take a photo *of* your dolphin and post it by accident.If everything does not work then its because:-
You sent huge file sizes – post something in sensible sizes – a few hundred K per image.
You sent more than 30 images in one go. If you are posting by mail then you would probably not want to send so many anyway.
You tried to attach your cat to the email. jpg, png or gif only please.
You have an old secret email registered as a contact in your mail app but you generated a new secret email.
You didn’t attach any images.
You didn’t send the mail.
Its not plugged in or you ran out of batteries.
You are dead and cant send mail.
You don’t have a computer or any means to send mail.
You put photos in an envelope and wrote the secret email on it.
You don’t have a camera and therefore cant take photos and thus cant attach images to an email.
You tried to attach photos to an email using tape and glue.
You got no keyboard and thus cant type the email.
You got no display and thus cant compose an email.
You sent the email to customer support at Mc Donalds.
You got no Internet connection.
You cant type an email because your hands are cuffed to the bollocks of an elephant.
Aoi-chan does not like you.Will be releasing an app for the iPhone called the MG Uploader which will work with any Mirai Gaia powered sites soon.
Hope you like the feature!

keep you laptop battery in good condition

laptop battery life is longer, often dissatisfied with sufficient, or even show damage, it is necessary to observe in the use of some small skills: Regardless of your laptop to use nickel-metal hydride or lithium electricity, as far as possible, and then exhausted to the basic charge of electricity (electricity less than 5%), which is to avoid the best way memory effect. In fact, the lithium-ion battery has some memory effect, Ni-MH battery is more than just much smaller. However important to note that charge when the time is too long to avoid the general control within 12 hours.
Battery life not by the total length of time, but by the number of charge and discharge decisions. If the battery is always installed on the laptop instead of taking down, even if the machine shut down and remove AC power, the battery will not like what has been imagined as a state of full power. laptop computer batteries because of the battery control integrated circuit, so even shut down your computer when power is power. Connected to AC power as a result of a battery will start charging, when turned on or off the power, the laptop battery will repeatedly charge and discharge, the impact of battery life.
To this end, the use of external AC power supply when the battery pulled out the best, otherwise, long battery life in the heat of their influential status. Long-term battery if not, please at least a month red discharge in order to ensure its activity. In the custody of the battery when there is a need to pay attention to. At present, the vast majority of laptops used in lithium-ion batteries do not use if the long period of time, often prone to the phenomenon of excessive discharge, may no longer be able to charge. In order to prevent over-discharge, can be recharged in under a half of its stored in a cool dry place, and then once every six months, and then half of its electricity to the state of charge.
In addition, the factors that affect laptop battery life include the use of the environment temperature (30 ? suggested that the use of the following), storage battery and battery temperature suffered shock size. Battery in use after a period of time will be aging, it is a concrete manifestation of resistance become larger, in charge when the voltage rise faster, so it is easy to charge control circuit has been judged to have been filled, the capacity is of course a drop of . Battery calibration is to deal with an effective way of aging batteries, a small number of laptop batteries have a dedicated calibration software. If your laptop does not discharge a dedicated software, it can be carried out in accordance with the following steps:
? Disable the screen saver;
? In the Windows Power Management power scheme will be set to “always open”;
? General tab in the warning “insufficient power warning” is set to 10%, the operation is set to “no operation”;
? will be “a serious power shortage alert,” set to 3%, operating as a “wait”;
? the screen brightness to the maximum;
? confirm all the windows closed, and the preservation of all data prior to the work;
? confirm battery after more than 80%, unplug the power and all external equipment.
Discharge after the end of the laptop will automatically shut down after the power plug so that the laptop charge, this process can be repeated 2 to 3 times the laptop ac adapter to enable continuous low current discharge, which discharge the state in our day-to-day use it is impossible achieved, the effect of discharge and those dedicated basically the same software.
