Photoblog: Tomato Fibers
Tomato Fibers

Playing with my new FujiFilm F550 EXR. Loving it so far, it's nice to be able to capture a shot like this using a mid-range point and shoot. Bonus: used the camera's EXR mode for this which automatically detected that I was attempting a macro shot and adjusted internal settings accordingly. Take that, manual settings!

Say goodbye to those hard to open splatter-prone ketchup packets. Say hello to the totally redesigned peel-back-BBQ-sauce-like-dipping-style design. Wait, it took them this long to figure this one out?

'If you play a part that gets an awful lot of attention,' he explained, 'forever after you're being asked by directors to play the same part in their movie. But I played the best wizard, and I'm happy to revisit him, which I shall do in The Hobbit with Guillermo del Toro.
