Photos and Words of Patrick Calder

I live in Washington, DC with 1 cat named Pixel, 6 cameras, 3 computers, 158 movies, 286 books, and 1 bowling pin. I own the Design Foundry and pretend to be a graphic designer by day.

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

Wow… it’s been almost a month since I posted anything.
Oopsie.
Plenty of things to write about, but I’m not in the mood. Thought I would just leave you with a photo.
High Falls National Park
Great Falls National Park. Dave and I went out there easter sunday. The picture doesn’t really do justice to the scale. Those rocks out in the river — the smaller ones — are the size of a house. No Niagara Falls, but still beautiful, and unlike Niagara, it’s not surrounded by a dirty, depressing city.

Going camping in Maine in a couple months. Yay!

natural bokeh / May 26, 2008 / Comment on this


I was looking at the shadows as I walked back from getting lunch today. I noticed the difference in shadows between the tree leaves verses unnatural structures, like signs and buildings and stuff. It eventually occurred to me, the shapes of the light through the tree leaves amounted to a natural occurring bokeh effect. It wasn’t something I had heard of before. And google searches don’t turn up much.
But if you look up pinhole cameras on wikipedia, you find out that Aristotle and Euclid both wrote about tree-filtered light being essentially pin-hole camera technology.
So I’m only a few millennia behind the curve.
