If you’re a Windows user, and I feel sorry for those trapped on Windows, you likely have heard that the upcoming Windows 10 is free and is loaded with Microsoft spyware and adware. Now it turns out that Microsoft is adding this spyware and adware into Win 7 and Win 8 via software updates, a processes called backporting. To make matters even worse, this spyware communicates with Microsoft’s servers through nonstandard channels within the OS, so the only currently known way to circumvent is with a customizable router firewall.
A group of us went to shoot fire, in an abandoned road or railway tunnel south of Prescott, Az. Here T. uses an air powered sprayer to simulate a flame thrower. This is a 5 image composite, each shot at ISO 400 f/8 1/90 in a Nikon D600. I combined the layers in Photoshop using the lighten blend mode, and masked out T. to eliminate ghosting.
While doing some touch up painting on the exterior of our house, step son Taylor found a small water leak. The plumbing inside the wall in that spot is a pressurized water line to the frost free faucet for the garden hose at the rear of the house, and the drain for the air conditioning evaporator. When the a/c removes humidity from the air, that condensed water drains through the white pvc pipe you see in this photo. Thankfully this was discovered before it became an ugly, moldy mess.
Next, we’ll repair the drain line. The after the area dries, we will repair and paint the drywall.
With houses as with cars, there’s always something going wrong, something to be fixed.
