A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Photobloggin': I was going to avoid the malls and instead go see what I could get at the former North County Camera (now Calumet) store in Escondido for my Olympus E-500. Tops on the list was a polarization filter and possibly a neutral density gradiant filter. Unfortunately, the store was closed -- perhaps the only store in the world that was closed today.

So, filterless, I went for a drive with my camera and I've got some shots to share. I'll spread them out over the next few days so as not to bore people. I've been shooting in raw format, which is supposedly the be-all, end-all of digital photography. In raw, the image you get is unadulterated by the camera's processors -- it is the raw image that is a result only of the ISO setting, F-stop and shutter speed. The camera doesn't compress the resulting file into a Jpeg file, so each image ends up being about 13 megs.

Anyway, tell me if you like these. This is taken from just off Bandy Canyon Road east of Escondido in the San Pasqual Valley.

Gorgeous picture! Surprisingly, very few stores were open on Boxing Day as it is called here in England. In fact, a lot of them are closed today as well and the big sales don't start until tomorrow. Being San Diegans, we were expecting great sales today and yesterday.

Not only is raw not compressed/etc. it allows you to enter a digital darkroom in the likes of photoshop where you can do all the cool stuff you used to do in photography class right on your computer screen.
