pointers on how to make a blog post if you are busy:  find a set of photos that you’ve forgotten about and upload them all, write a rant making no reference to the date that you shot them.  the rant should sound like ‘these photos were from a thing a shot at some stage!  It was a great day that my friend, Luke Bailie (international wind surfing extraordinaire) at RQYS where i got to walk/sit with a camera and get paid to enjoy it.  gear wise i had an intrigue on my hands as i had a d700. Because of this, I was in a constant and  enlarged state of euphoria but i had to use it with a crop frame normal.  I was sneaking a few extra mms out of without too much vignette to get nice and wide, but it took a lot of work! For teles I had my bosses 70s leica primes so I had a fantastic time getting them to work and it was the first time i’ve ever used a polariser and i had a pretty good time!  made for some pretty bad skies at times though….  I ended up shooting all of my friends because the conditions were bad so the sailing/kiting was tears and busied myself with flash fun.’  After this you embed a song to increase wholesome effect but don’t use a song with an associated clip that is a true wig.  Make sure it doesn’t contain a babe or nudity or dogs butts or bubbebaths.

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
