Today’s Quick Post: My Dream Room (someone give me a basket…)

Canon’s Gear Supply Room at the London 2012 Olympics [source]

This is what is looks like inside the Canon Professional Services Office at the London 2012 Olympics.  It is a room filled from floor to ceiling with Camera Bodies and Lenses.  The Canon 1D X has not been released to the general public, but this room has hundreds available to use.  There must be literally hundreds of thousands of pounds/dollars of equipment in this room.

I am Canon Camera SLR user myself and would feel like it was Christmas if I was able to select some items from this room.

Today’s Quick Post: There is some crazy drivers out there…

During my daily scan of Digg (digg.com) stories, I came across this video of some guys enjoying a ride in the Omaha, NE night, when this crazy driver decides he doesn’t like them for no apparent reason and tries to run them off the road.

In the video you see several times tries hit the bikes at 60+ MPH, and on two occasions actually come in to contact with the bikes, one being the video bike.

The notes section of the YouTube video, states the driver was arrested on drug charges, nothing related to what the guys on the bikes were doing.

Being a rider myself, it really annoys me that some people have no respect for motorcyclists, drug deluded or otherwise.  Check out the video below, and hope this never happens to you.

The video does contain ‘Not Suitable for Work’ language… so you have been warned!

Today’s Quick Post: Check Out Kelby Training…!

For a number of years, I had considered joining the National Association of Photoshop Professional (NAPP), the company that was founded by Scott Kelby, and the producers of Photoshop User Magazine.  This was a result of watching the ‘Photoshop Guys’ podcast since it began all those years ago.  I even remember when it was simply a MP3 podcast – try following a tutorial on Photoshop without a visual reference…
