Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge Cooperative Farming

The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma manages a cooperative farming program that raises wheat, corn, soybeans, and other crops on more than three thousand acres. A portion is purposely left unharvested in order to attract wildlife. (The Refuge manages 20,800 acres of habitat for wildlife.) This year it looks like corn and soybeans. You can see in the photo that the corn is already 8 to 10 foot high at the refuge. It's a good thing they don't plant corn everywhere on the refu...

Wild Hogs At The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

I bet the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge manager is not happy to have wild Hogs on this refuge. Just about everywhere I hiked on the refuge I saw signs of Hogs. (March 2016) I decided after seeing signs of Hogs that I would try to stalk up on one and get a photo. I rate wild Hogs right up there with deer and coyotes when it comes to being wary. I found an area that had some fresh signs and I began my search. After about an hour I heard a few and I began my stalk. Most of the time you will hea...

AirSelfie is a pocket-sized drone designed to take your picture from the air

Taking a selfie by holding your phone at arm’s length is usually fine if you’re only taking a snap of yourself or at most another person. But when you try to squeeze more people into the frame or want to see the background too, a camera at the end of your arm just won’t cut it. Neither will a 3-foot long selfie stick. Is there a better alternative? The folds at AirSelfie think so. AirSelfie is a small smartphone-sized drone whose sole purpose is to take pictures of you as quickly and easily as...

7 Italian Social Photographers You Need to Know

This whole idea about writing a post about Italian Photographers came to me after watching this video about a book that revolves around a group of forgotten Italian Street Photographers. The book is called “La Strada” which simply means “The Street” in Italian. As a huge lover of Street Photography, I thought that this was a cool idea indeed, but the problem was that I thought that finding information about them would be easy. This largely turned out to be wrong and I decided to focus on more kn...

The Best 35mm Lens

Just for fun, what's your favorite 35mm (or 35mm angle-of-view equivalent) lens? This might sound odd, given that I've probably tried somewhere between 60 and 100 of them, but my favorite is probably the Fuji XF 23mm ƒ/1.4 R that I'm currently using. There's no geeky magic about it. It just seems to do everything very well. Performance, for sure, but even size, weight, the way it operates, and cost all seem to hit the sweet spot to me. In second place for digital might be the Sony-Zeiss 24mm (th...

Ander Herrera’s Marcos Rojo injury update

Injured Marcos Rojo Man United’s Europa League match against Anderlecht last season was costly. Not only did the game prove to be the last time Zlatan Ibrahimovic played for the Red Devils, Argentine defender Marcos Rojo also ended his season in the match. Both Ibra and Rojo suffered significant knee ligament damage against the Belgians. Back in May, Argentine paper La Nacion announced that Man United fans shouldn’t plan to see Rojo in action anytime soon. Putting a timeframe on his recovery, i...

NBA Rookie Is Just So Happy To Play For 'Team Name' In The City Of 'City' (techdirt)

It ain't easy being a high-profile celebrity these days. A job that once mostly involved ducking cameras and putting out the occasional press release has evolved into one where multiple social media platforms must be updated so that fans feel that real connection that can only come with a carefully managed social media message. The brand is the ultimate product rather than any athletic or artistic output. To that end, even these social media messages come with sponsorships, carefully cultivated ...
