Golfing in Snow – at Zero (F.) Degrees!

25 years ago this week, in 1993, we came across this guy at the Sagamore Resort above Lake George, New York. We were sledding and cross-country skiing (or at least trying,) and HE….was apparently frozen stiff!

The wind-chill temperature on the mountain above Lake George was 0 (F,) (-18C.)!

4:30 AM: Washington DC – The Capitol and the Moon

 The top photo could have been taken last week. But when I stood on the Capitol lawn with the EXA camera, man was yet to step foot on the moon and our president was embroiled in a Southeast Asian war.  The camera was a manual SLR, with something called photographic film, from Kodak. (Admittedly some digital enhancing gave the image just a little more snap than the original snap! 🙂 )

Pondering Illuminant Metamerism – Or, Get a Life!

While at my desk recently, (sitting there thoughtless – for me, a common place to be,) I took this picture of the ceiling above, which slants down to a skylight.

What’s interesting, or not, is the fact that except for the window, the same color paint was used on the same type surface. Only the angle of the outside lighting is different. Yes, it’s called Illuminant Metamerism, and was a consideration for which colorants (pigments) were to be utilized in my early career in the color matching science. Ultimatly that  led to “getting a (good) life” in my chosen career field.

There’s no point in zooming in on this image, but as usual, comments are always welcome. M:-)

Day and Night – Up on the Roof

Earlier this month, a full moon shines through hazy clouds as a south-east wind spins an “anemometer,” up there on our roof. The station also includes a rain bucket, temperature, humidity and barometric sensors; solar cells, and transmitter to the display inside.  

I believe my wife, family and neighbors are quielty tolerant of some of my obsessions and often concerned about my well-being.  🙂
