Americans seem to be obsessed with superheroes, much like they are obsessed with religion, and I find it pretty frightening that this seems to be largely for the same reasons.

The Song of the Day is “No More Heroes” by the Stranglers. Hear it on YouTube.

Shocking!! A rainy day, and the first thing you see, when you walk out of the door, is a bicycle vanishing!

Nikon 18-200 at 90mm, f5, 1/8s and ISO 1600, handheld. Oh yes, and a tiny bit of Photoshop too. Btw: no need to tell me this is byrnesque. Of course it is 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Shock in my Town” from Franco Battiato’s 1998 album “Gommalacca“. See the video on YouTube.

For the moment things seem to work again. I have tried F-Secure in the morning, but it wouldn’t even install. Last thing I did in the morning, was to reinstall Bitdefender. We’ll see.

I shot this image in the morning, shortly after leaving home. A big Spiderman, mounted on the wall above a comics shop in KaiserstraĂźe. I used fill flash from the camera’s built-in flash. Hmm … it’s clear that there is room for improvement, but in that moment that was the best I could do. Post-processing was done in Capture NX and Photoshop.

The Song of the Day is “Mean Red Spider” by Muddy Waters. Again I have it on “The Ultimate Jazz Archive“. For a sound sample look here.
