Default New development in photography

Excuse my language, but I recently saw a bumper sticker that sums up
many of life's problems, including this post about prints: "****
happens". My philosophy is simply this: when I see doggie droppings on
the sidewalk, I do not get angry, I do not yell and scream at the owner;
I just walk around it and go on my way. Perhaps that is merely the
serenity of old age.

"A photo that exists physically - IRL. A photo that is a
one-of-a-kind original that can be shared, exhibited and preserved. A
photo that no longer needs an electronic device to be seen."

Something new and innovative?

No, it's a print. Adorama, in their new mini-catalog describes what a
device does with an image from an iPhone photo. It makes a print.

Being about Mort's age, I can confirm his recollection. When we were kids, it
was assumed that dogs would do what they did wherever they were and that it
was your fault if you stepped in it. (I believe the operative slogan, covering
this and other ambulatory hazards, was "Watch your step".) If the worst
happened, you cleaned off your shoes and moved on. The idea that a sane person
would follow his dog around picking up the latter's **** was, quite simply,
ludicrous.

I think that geese are outright liars. I made a deal that I would not
crap on the grass where they walked and ate, if they would not crap on
the sidewalk. I kept my part of the deal, but they didn't keep theirs.
Any thoughts on appropriate retaliation?

If only the farmers in the valley did. They're at the point of sucking
so much ground water that the aquifers are collapsing - they will never
fill with water again.

Pumping from aquifers is so intense that the ground in parts of the
valley is sinking about a foot a year. Once aquifers compress, they can
never fill with water again. It’s no surprise Tom Willey wakes every
morning with a lump in his throat. When we ask which farmers will
survive the summer, he responds quite simply: those who dig the deepest
and pump the hardest.

The Central Valley Farmers are blaming everybody but themselves. The
farms which are a big part of agri-business conglomerates have bought
out most of the family farmers and their Federal water allocations. The
Feds in turn are delivering a *Zero allocation* this year as there is
no water to deliver.

Agri-business farms have sowed on untenable land after taking out
Federal crop insurance with the full knowledge those crops will fail.
Once again the tax payer takes it in the wallet.

It seems this year all those salad fixings are going to be coming from
Chile and Central America.

We have local issues with vineyard developers East of Hwy 101 who have
depleted the aquifer so much that local well-dependent non-farming
homeowners are having to drill new deeper wells.

I am fortunate that I live West of Paso Robles where we don’t have that
problem.

Back in the mid '80s I took some classes at UConn. There was a lake on
campus known to the students as "duck *beep* pond" (only the students
didn't beep the expletive). One proposal at the time was to hold a game
dinner night. With more than 20,000 students on campus this would have
resolved the problem in short order. Of course, being a university,
numerous objections were raised, ranging from food-safety to animal
rights, and so that never happened. A quick google of "Uconn goose
problem" found that as of 2009 they were still working on it.

Personally if I were running UCONN I'd have put out a poll of the
students, giving them three choices--kill the geese, fill the pond, or
volunteer to shovel goose *beep*.
