    I went looking in my files for some photos from that region. Since I am populating my site with new (for the site) work, I’ll pull up some of the Wallowas and east and put them in their own gallery.

    I’ll keep you all posted.

    SD spent some time east of the Wallowas, so I was told by OmAli. Her descriptions of where suggested I probably visited and photographed close to where he stayed. That would have been a great connection with him, had I known, but alas! it wasn’t long after I started to show up here he was [...]

    Yes, I know. I did read some back versions to get a flavor but then he was gone. IIRC, it was expected but not so soon?

    Good morning. I’m up early today.

    I have only the slightest association with SD, so I cannot comment.

    I agree. I got “Keep away” vibes from watching this. And what about the camera? She attracted attention, was not a single woman, unless the camera and operator were invisible.

    Boorish behavior no doubt, but if I walked by her my response would have been to say nothing but then turn around and watch what was going down. It is obviously a setup.

    I looked at the film as a photographer. First, the camera was very close to her as the lens was almost fish eye. Notice the edges of the frame. The buildings are curved, giving away the wide angle. Also, notice no jerky movements. The filming was smooth, indicating some sort of stabilization system and not a simple hand held camera. There had to be an eye behind the camera because the framing is consistent. So, even if there was an attempt at concealment, as suggested by the first shots, the camera was professionally operated. No one noticed? It would be interesting to see a fuller version, especially footage that would have been obviously cut.

    So, this is staged. Were any of the men part of the stage?

    Watch any travel footage by people like Rick Steves for example. Same setup as he walks through a city. People do notice, and the outakes show some humorous encounters. The same for network news footage. There are blooper outakes that show outrageous behavior by some folks.

    BTW, I get noticed by women on the street, mostly because they seem to like my hat! I get eye contact much more frequently when I wear it than when I don’t. And a smile. Once in a while, they even tell me. Oh, and it helps to be carrying the camera!

    Continuing the saga about GMO

    This is a new grocery just showed up in Portland, or rather, Gresham. We already have shopped there and am really surprised at the prices.

    We shall see

    On another note, from the same blog is this delightful video about the blind and 3D printing.

    I think we should train our cats to be mental health workers. Ebony knows exactly how to get what he wants from me (Food!) with no argument.

    I remember distinctly walking down the street with the head of a “street” mental health clinic in Portland when that came down. She was unequivocal in her assessment, and if in any error, it was in the degree of it’s impact. I believe it got to her (and another worker) as well, for very personal [...]

    I watched it.

    Thanks.

    I’m going to drift off for a while and see if I can recover my centeredness around camera work.
