Random Flickr Photo of the Day

Another shot from 2009, I had a lot of time then, as the company I worked for cut back our hours so that everyone can stay employed, and not have anyone get laid off, so to make good use of that extra found free day, I did some photography.  I should honestly find a way to do this again, even if it’s a few shots a day.  I do tend to get rusty, and looking at my shot list this year, it’s severely down from my usual 10k or shots a year.

Anyway, this shot was from a fine spring day in Central Park, NYC, it was quite gloomy, but I still somehow managed to squeeze off a few shots. This particular frame is a weeping willow, somewhere in the park.  I did some processing fun with Lightroom, and managed to produce this.

In addition to my random Flickr Photos, I will start posting my shot with the most hits of the day.

Today’s shot is the lovely Jessica Nigri interviewing a fellow cos-playing as Super Saiyajin 3 Son Gokou of Dragon Ball Z.

More motivation.

People, people. What have we learned from fear? Fear causes hesitation. Don’t hesitate. It’ll make your fears come true. Go with your gut. Either you give it all you’ve got or you don’t do it at all.

Big Cheese note: please be responsible. We do not in anyway want you to hurt yourself. Do not try this at home.


No big deal, I’ll just jump down this huge gap to motivate a total stranger.
Yes, that is what this crazy Latino man did for a random skateboarder, filming for a video part.
The guy was THAT crazy, that he broke his ankle for a stranger. Next time you’re afraid to do something big, remember this guy. REMEMBER HIM.
Watch the video, okay?
Cheesecake note: Do not try this at home, by the way.
