"The European Atrocity You Never Heard About," by R.M. Douglas, Chronicle of Higher Education, June 11, 2012 ---

Jensen Comment
After World War II ended, my wife's family was forced off their Czechoslovakia farm at gun point. Being only five years old, Erika never knew why they were forced to be refuges walking on the road. She was told that the soldiers pointing guns at them were "communists." Erika with her mother, grandparents, and Tante Pepe headed for Germany, but the Germans were blocking Czech immigrants at border check points even if they were German speaking refuges seeking shelter. Erika was eventually smuggled across the border to the bombed out, dark, and cold Regensburg train depot on a Christmas eve.

I see from my house by the side of the road
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both parts of an infinite plan-
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.
Sam Walter Foss (1858-1911)

If you have to ask about price you can't afford it.
"Nikon announces D4 DSLR camera: full-frame 16.2 MP sensor, 204,000 extended ISO, $6,000 price tag," by Zach Honig, Engadget, January 5, 2012 ---
http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/05/nikon-d4-dslr-camera/

More than two years after the D3S began shipping and roughly a half-decade after we first got a peek at the D3, Nikon has finally announced the full-frame DSLR's long-awaited successor. As expected, the Nikon D4 boosts both megapixel rating (to 16.2) and extended ISO (204,800 at Hi-4), and includes a brand new full-frame FX-format sensor. Video capture also jumped from 720/24p to 1080/30p, but so did the camera's somewhat-out-of-reach price tag -- you'll be dropping $5,999.95 when the D4 hits stores in late February. You're clearly not spending all that hard-earned photo dough for nothing, though. There's also a 91k-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Meter III, compared to a 1,005-pixel meter in the D3S, enabling the camera to evaluate the color and brightness of a scene with much greater precision, yielding much more accurate results. And since the D4 reportedly offers phenomenal low-light performance, you'll probably be using it quite often in the dark -- letting you get good use out of the new back-lit controls.

Photographers can preview images using the 921k-dot 3.2-inch LCD, which offers a 170-degree viewing angle and ambient light sensor. HD video can be previewed on the display as well, or directly through the HDMI port, which also supports uncompressed 8-bit preview video output with optional overlay. Naturally, the D4 is fast. It can power on and be ready to shoot in approximately 0.012 seconds, and can capture 10 fps stills at full resolution with full auto focus and exposure. Willing to lock both AF and AE? The D4 goes to 11. A new 51-point AF system offers full cross-type focusing that's compatible with all Nikon lenses, even when paired with a teleconverter. The D4 includes two card slots with support for both UDMA-7 CF and the
recently-announced XQD format, which brings write speeds of up to 125 MB/s -- enough to capture 105 consecutive RAW images at 10 fps. You'll find full details and specs on the D4 just past the break, along with an overview of Nikon's new AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G FX-format lens, which is set to ship in March for $499.95.

I've never met Becky Miller, but every now and then she send me a message about the practice of accountancy.
However, she also sends me messages about her photography hobby.

Hi Bob,

Message 1
Bob --- I have shared with you in the past my JOY in photographing track and field. Retirement is much more fun with an active hobby. Therefore, I wanted to share with you...alright, brag to you...about my recent success. I had one photo published in the August Track and Field News magazine and two photos publishing in the September edition. WOW....not a great supplemental source of retirement income, as they pay only $50 a shot. But, that is not the point. It is the joy of life after accounting.

I hope all is well with you and yours.

 

Message 2
I mostly time my pictures for the best lighting such as at sunset or sunrise. Retired accountant Becky Miller, however, uses a much more expensive camera to time high speed action Anytime you want. The timing of her position is just because my camera shoots 7 frames per second! So, sometimes I get lucky.

Right now I am having fun learning infrared photography and this new HDR stuff. The first has no application in sports, as it needs really long exposures, but the second can create some great images....almost too great. They start looking less like photos. And more like...hmm....not sure how to describe it. But sort of plastic, like a movie that is all computer graphics. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/zachancell/3987477470/  for an example. I think it is a technique that can be taken too far. But, it is fun to manipulate. I have a couple of young athletes competing in the Thorpe Cup next weekend. They are both looking for sponsors, so we are going to try to shoot some very dramatic images of them. I will let you know if they turn out.
