    : Not geotagged? For shame!

    How can you tell? I can't see any of the Exif data. Am I looking in the wrong
    place?

    : I wish the night shot of the ESB and the other building were replicated
    : as a day shot (or several time of day shots).

    I can see why Alan singled that one out; it may be the best of the set. Good
    technique and composition, and it lacks the wide-angle distortion that some of
    the other shots have. I might take a small strip off the top, to help keep the
    sky from crowding the rest of the picture. The best landscapes are about
    either the sky or the ground, but not both. This one is about the ground.
    Don't overdo it, though, or you risk dividing the picture vertically into two
    segments.

    American Museum of Natural History. I took some pictures, but wasn't
    crazy about them.

    I'll have to figure out the geotag technology. My camera doesn't have
    it built-in.

    Three of the pictures were taken with the 14mm Samyang, which accounts
    for the distortion. It is an interesting lens, and a challenge to use
    in an urban setting.

    I understand, that to enjoy the full experience, you need to spend a
    night at that museum. ;-)

    That's OK, you'll probably be able to find NYC again without referring
    to geotagged photos. The geotag enthusiasts probably think you
    wouldn't know where you took that photo of the large lady holding up a
    torch if it wasn't geotagged.

    Aquariums are harder.

    Both on the same day?! You're a brave man, Philo! Even those of who have had
    heart surgery probably don't have that much tolerance for pain.

    He is just taking a balanced approach to the whole ordeal.

    That's correct.
    Even though my left knee was in bad condition,
    my right knee would not have lasted more than another year so I figured
    I might as well just get a "matched set" so to speak.

    Since my job requires a fair amount of physical work my total time off
    work will be about 90 days. If I had a desk job I'd probably ne able to
    go back in three more weeks.

    For me to go through all this once this year, then again the following
    year seemed like a pretty bleak option. I figured that to just go
    through the whole thing once and get it over with was well worth it.

    It was not fun but the pain was mostly tolerable.
    By the 4th day I was off all narcotics and even able to walk around a
    bit...with a walker of course.


    When I went into surgery I was in excellent physical condition except
    for my knees of course.

    The worst part of the whole thing was an allergic reaction I got
    probably from one of my medications. I had severe hives for three full
    days and that was actually a lot worse than the knee surgery.


    Can't wait until I'm back out there doing photography...
    Probably will start in again today!
