Under an oil-slick sky

The levels have been corrected on this photo but other than that it's pretty much as it came off my camera. It's as close as I can get to wet plate photography with my digital camera, haha…

If it's not obvious, it's just a picture of oily water running down the street (the trees are a reflection).

Anyway, in real weplate photography, I'll post a full review soon, but I got Matt's book in the mail this morning (a book of wetplate suspension photos) — a series of dreamlike images and portraits captured at ROP events over the past few years.

I actually almost missed getting it today, but as I was driving Nefarious to school I saw the courier walk up to my house as we drove past, so I yelled out the window, “hey, that's my house!” and just caught him in time!

Other than that, this Mini billboard cracks me up.

If I understand what a cock tease is, then a cop tease is a car that looks fast but doesn't actually speed, right? Lame. I'm buying a car that's a cop killer, not a cop tease. Of course, if Mini put up a “cop killer” ad, I doubt the police union would be too friendly about it.

Not that the Toronto police union is known for friendliness!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
