This was taken on Broadway, between 88th and 89th Street.

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

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.

Walking back home at the end of the afternoon, I saw this man sitting alone on the cold stone benches that stretch along the middle of Verdi Square. He seemed lost in thought, and didn’t notice me when I snapped his picture.

How to charge your usb device like a smartphone using your laptop's battery even if its off

A quick tutorial explaining how you can charge your usb device such as a smartphone using your laptop, even if your laptop is powered off and or not plugged into the wall. Depending on the laptop, you may need to enable this feature in your BIOS. If you have the lighting bolt symbol next to the USB symbol and you plug a device into it while the laptop is off and it does not work, you need to boot into your BIOS settings and adjust the USB powering sharing (though it may be called differently depending on laptop). As with any BIOS settings, use at your own risk!

Jonathan Coulton: A Laptop Like You

19

This is a video I made for Jonathan Coulton’s song ‘A Laptop Like You’. It stars Axis, my trusty PowerBook G4, which I bought in early 2005 just before moving from New Zealand to Geneva. I recently replaced it with a MacBook Pro, but just like Jonathan Coulton, my PowerBook would not retire without becoming an internet superstar. The song in the credits is ‘When You Go’, also by Jonathan Coulton. Both songs can be found on JonathanCoulton.com, and they are licensed under Creative Commons, which means I can make videos like this without fear of being accosted by lawyers. His song ‘Code Monkey’ is also referred to in this video. Bram Tant (http who valiantly confronted various Vista hassles in order to pretend to be my not-really-love-interest for about 50 seconds, also makes music. Probably the best place to look for him at the moment is in the upcoming Masters of Song Fu competition, somewhere difficult-to-find on quickstopentertainment.com. Not-necessarily-fun facts and bloopers: There’s another video for this song on YouTube, which also features a Swiss flag. My MacBook Pro actually weighs 42g more than the PowerBook. This is the 42nd video I’ve uploaded to YouTube. I filmed so many takes of the ‘break it in two pieces’ scene that I think I ruined the contacts or something; my PowerBook’s battery doesn’t charge any more. The grey T-shirt is from Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference 2004. I originally intended to zoom out to show the back of it (which says ‘WWDC 2004
