Machine Gun Photography

Kottke is on to something here.  Seems like a perfectly logical progression.

Just as the introduction of the machine gun fundamentally changed warfare, so the affordable high-resolution digital video camera will change photography. Now you don’t have to wait for exactly the right moment for the perfect shot; just take 10 minutes of HD video and find the best shots later.

I Can’t Stop Watching

Working on the Railroad

My daughter got some little picture books for Christmas with some familiar songs and rhymes.  There is a shortened verison of “Working on the Railroad” that I’m just not sure how is supposed to be sung.  In my searches for the song I came across the above Rooftop Singers performance.  For some reason I keep playing this over and over.  The highlight — when Lynne Taylor comes in huskily for the fee fi fo part.
