At any rate, lots of good people watching and colorful philly culture. My photos aren't what I had hoped, as I had a hard time focusing with my telephoto lens, and the low light and fast shutter speeds necessitated using 1600 ISO, which introduced a lot of noise into my photos.

Photography was tricky at the show, because the lighting was quite low, no tripods were allowed, and I hate using flash. So I stuck with apertures around f/2 and most of my photos turned out a bit fuzzy that wide open. This one is sharp, although its depth of focus is pretty shallow - notice the out of focus outer leaves...
The other news is that I've changed the layout of my flickr home page, and will probably try a few different things until I decide what I like best. Let me know if you have any opinions about the size and number of photos on the front page, or the additions of "collection" mosaics on the right.

The persistence of signage
This crazy shot is real - not photomanipulated. It's the reflection in a warped storm door of a house around the corner. I love how it turned out so surreal, since it really is just a boring neighborhood location - nothing special.
(Oh yeah, I did do a minor manipulation, of course. The photo was reversed so that the stop sign wouldn't read backwards. But I promise - all the waviness is real!)

This photo is also special to me because it is the first one in a while (maybe a month?) that has gotten enough attention from Flickrites to appear on Explore. So once again my inner child feels validated and worthwhile. My outer adult knows that Explore shouldn't mean anything to me, especially since most photos on it are of dogs or kids or pretty women. But maybe that makes it even more cool that this still life, low on cuteness and high on subtlety (at least compared to many Explore photos), was included.
