A lit lightbulb in hand

Yes. The lights are just coming back on-line.

After many days, I have Internet service again.

Lightning hit the telephone wire outside the house, which fried our phone line, it fried the modem and it toasted the router! Also, (more fun), my operating system crashed big-&*^-time and it took days to get it working even this good (i.e., only three four blue screens of death today – so far).

Nevertheless, I don’t think I can blame that on the OS totally, I believe I need to ‘flash my bios,’ [why do they call it that – it sounds really wrong! LOLOL] update the bios, and that may help the situation.

The computer may die on it’s own, but maybe not, if my patients runs out (after many, many, many days of work on this thing), I may end up killing it myself.

At least, I’m back on-line at this very moment in time – must try to look at the positives.

“Live in the now for who knows what evil blue screen will pop up next and take it all away!”  {Me:  It was I who just said that.}

Take care,

This type of photography takes considerable patience. You have to take several photographs of a scene, some with light and some without, and hope that the main components “play well” together in the end.

In the most basic terms, all the photographs that make up this shot, in this case, only two were used, need to be aligned precisely; and also, the layers need to be strategically worked with to get the proper amount of opacity in the correct places.

The following video clip is a track from one of my Favorite Metal Bands, SHADOWS FALL, a performance at DownLoad Festival 2007. The song is called, “The Light That Blinds,” and I thought it was kind of appropriate to accompany my photograph, with also a “Light” subject.


Alrighty Then…Enjoy…Photograph…Metal-Out…and Go F’en Crazy!!!   It’s definitely, a weird day in Mr. Nawfal’s Neighborhood!   LMAOBMFT!!!
