Me - Shooting Profile

OT: LJ Advisory Board

As you may have noticed, Live Journal is taking nominations for a user advisory board. It could be useful or it could be completely lame. At this point the only way to know is to try to be elected to the position. If nominated and subsequently elected, I will work to keep the new owners of LJ and Six Apart from ruining the community that LJ has become. I'll also try to suggest ways to improve the friending system, improvements in which moderators can manage their communities better, and improvements to the (horrid) LJ Gallery system. Most people who have seen me actively involved or managing very communities will agree that I've been a mellow and very responsible moderator or member.

This is where I ask for your support. It only takes 100 votes to nominate a candidate. Fortunately this campaign only lasts for a month or so.

LiveJournal Advisory Board Elections

I support jj_maccrimmon to be my representative on the Advisory Board.

A Cautionary Tale

This past weekend I took some pictures of some amazing graffiti on the outside of an abandoned factory in Asheville NC. I looked around the inside of the building and got a handful of abandoned equipment pictures. The interior was damp and the air seemed clear enough. I was coughing by the time I hit the exit. My lovely mate was waiting outside and she began to cough too. I asked her what happened and she said that the wind shifted, blowing into her face just as I was leaving the building. She is very sensitive to irritants of the lungs. Between my experience and hers, it seemed that there was something not quite right with the air in the factory. I had wanted to return to the building with a tripod to get some low light pictures, but decided against the action. What was in the building? I don't know, but this was the first time I had encountered an environment that required some kind of mask. Live and learn...
