Flying Kangaroo Time Lapse (#137)

Flying Kangaroo Time Lapse (#137)
Laptop Batteries

Image by Christopher Chan
I shot this time lapse sequence earlier today on my flight over from Sydney to San Francisco. I don’t usually get a window seat but this time I was lucky – I had a whole row of seats to myself. So I took advantage of the opportunity to try out some high altitude time lapse photography.

I rigged up the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 to my Macbook Pro and controlled the shoot using Gawker. I was lucky also that the window was quite clean. I shot until the battery on the laptop died (no in seat power in economy !). I deleted a lot of footage where the rising sun created a lot of flaring. It looks like in flight time lapse works best when the sun is on the other side of the plane.

A big hello to my San Francisco Flickr friends ! Sorry I can’t meet up with you guys on this trip. This is a really short trip. I’m only here for three days and all spent in San Jose.

As the map of the plane’s current location was easily the most interesting thing to watch on my flight, I watched quite a bit of it. Especially once the batteries on my laptop died. I could barely read I was so tired. [Look at the map]

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

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.

This was taken on the northwest corner of Columbus Ave and 72nd Street. I don’t know where the woman was coming from, but the blue thingy on the left appears to be a dog-bed of some kind. I watched her carry it into a pet store around the corner on 72nd Street…

Note: apparently because of the dog-like connection suggested in the comment above, this photo was published as part of an illustration for a Jul 2009 Squidoo blog titled "Your Pets: Do You Breed, Neuter or Neither?"

This was taken on the southeast corner of Broadway & 82nd Street, looking toward the "Liberty Travel" shop on the far corner.

When I first moved into this area some 25 years ago, I lived about two blocks west of this spot…

Example of how B&W brings out details otherwise lost in color hues. Usually see this in low light and extreme contrasts.

(I’d probably have helped, too, if I’d remembered to reset the camera’s white balance before shooting these.)

This is what I woke up to at 2:30 am. Well, not exactly… What I really woke up to was my wife running around yelling "Dennis’ barn is burning down!" The sound of the roof collapsing probably woke her. I have a later shot that shows a propane tank exploding, but it’s pretty blurred.

As seen from the window next to my computer in our dining room about 10 minutes after wife woke me up (and after I got off the phone with 911) when I woke up enough to realize I have 2 cameras sitting next to me on the desk!

Forgot to change settings though… it was set for WB=cloudy from earlier on Saturday’s walk. Actually, the battery and CF card were both out of camera so I had to reload everything before I could take this shot. Camera’s clock is an hour off for some reason.

It’s pretty obvious the fire started in back corner (left), near the wood burner stove/heater.

Here’s a short BDN article on the fire – http://www.beloitdailynews.com/articles/2008/02/04/news/news06.txt

My Steam-electric punk time machine is operational.

Standing around 12 inches in height, this three-motor, independent-switched, geared and battery-powered time and space transformer plugs directly into your computer via usb port. This allows direct linkage to Google Earth and Sky for precise location placement. Portable power supply allows for usage in low or no-tech environments. Counters display leaving/destination times with transparent disks display passage of time form one time zone to next.

So, where do I want to go?
My first destination would have to be 1000 years in the future. Same location. (this machine is limited to the Milky Way galaxy and Magellan Clouds) Curious to see if the plants have taken over, and man is gone. Or are super jets landing at Sydney airport and future residents complaining to galactic council over the noise levels?

I shall let you know.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time Part 9: Rogue Battery Bots In The Hollow

Yup in this part after doing the combat enemy moons in the Vela Sector we land on Planet Torren IV, specifically in the Molonoth Fields which lies on the cliffs overlooking vast arid plains. After meeting up and helping some Vullards we head into the Hollow which is situated in an old Fongoid factory, while also the Battery Bots have revolted, so we have to put them in their place. Enjoy. Copyright 2009 Insomniac Games

4 out of the 5 laptops I have ever owned.

Top left to bottom right in age:

* hermes – Dell Latitude c600 – Last Dell I will ever own.
* istari – IBM ThinkPad R40 – This sold me on the ThinkPad line, it is a great laptop and I still use it from now and then for testing.
* khadgar – Lenovo 3000 N100 – Owned this for 6+ years, first laptop I bought new. I have been playing StarCraft II on it lately. Has been to Scotland, England and Australia with me. Crap battery life but was light and had a fantastic screen.
* ishikawa – Lenovo ThinkPad T500 – Ubuntu Linux 10.04 (amd64). I love this thing, great value for money and lovely battery life. Has been all over with me in the short year I have owned it.
