Fujirumors.com: Different Twins: “King of Bokeh” XF 56mm f/1.2 APD VS classic XF 56mm f/1.2 (PROS & CONS)
"Apodizing filters are used to create an even illumination profile in an optical system. Bull’s Eye type filters feature a high optical density in the center which decreases continuously to an uncoated edge, and are commonly used to flatten the intensity profile of Gaussian beams. The Reverse Bull’s Eye type features a high optical density coating on the filter’s edge which decreases continuously to an uncoated center."

Det sker en massiv energiöverföring från planeten Venus till Jorden som påverkar människors medvetenhet för att de ska kunna upplösa Egots illusioner och uppleva verkligheten.När människor sover och drömmer djupt upplever de det som händer i drömmen som verkligt. Efter uppvaknandet tror de att det var en dröm och att den verklighet som de upplever nu är äkta, men den är inte heller verklig. Egots vibrationer påverkar människors medvetande och alla tror att allt som de upplever är verkligt, men det är en Illusion skapad av Egots vibrationer. Människor är isolerade från verkligheten och därför har de ingen kontakt med andevärlden och med andra existensformer i universum.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: the joy of veg
Contrary to what you might think, a meal based around several dishes needn't require much work. You need only a couple of "prepared" things for a family meal, which you can complement with a simple hunk of good bread and a salad of ripe cherry tomatoes or a pile of scrubbed raw carrots. In any case, in my house, our meze-style dishes tend to be prepared and consumed in a sort of rolling relay from meal to meal. Leftovers from yesterday's supper are often a crucial element of today's lunch. It's a relaxed way of cooking and eating.

Deep water freediving exposes its practitioners to a form of narcosis, which induces several symptoms, among which a feeling of euphoria and levity that earned this phenomenon its nickname of “raptures of the deep”. The short film relates the interior journey of Guillaume Néry, the apnea world champion, during one of his deep water dives. It draws its inspiration from his physical experience and the narrative of his hallucinations.

t's time to forget agonizing, sheer mind-boggling, soul-crushing monotony of countless hours spent checking, approving or discarding hundreds upon thousands of RAW shots. It's time to forget the horror you surely feel when you are getting ready to start sorting and categorizing a 20-gig folder of mish-mash photographs: some taken yesterday, others maybe from 2001.

Stereogum — Ryan Adams Announces Hardcore 10-Song 7″ 1984
Ryan Adams’ uneven 2003 LP, Rock N Roll, includes a song called “1974,” co-written with Alanis Morissette, named after the year both artists were born. Now, Adams is set to release a new 10-song 7″ that will celebrate some of the music made a decade after Adams’ (and Morissette’s) birth. The 1984 EP “pays homage to the halcyon days of the earliest releases from Dischord, SST, Touch & Go and their ilk.” The EP is entirely distinct from Adams’ forthcoming self-titled LP (which features the excellent lead single “Gimme Something Good“), although perhaps its arrival indicates that we can expect to see a return of the Ryan Adams who used to drop two or three LPs ever year, rather than the one who’s been largely silent since 2011. Check out the 1984 tracklist and release info below along with some new tour dates.

Wikipedia.org: Speed wobble
Wobble, shimmy, tank-slapper, speed wobble, and even death wobble are all words and phrases used to describe a quick (4–10 Hz) oscillation of primarily just the steerable wheel(s) of a vehicle. Initially, the rest of the vehicle remains mostly unaffected, until translated into a vehicle yaw oscillation of increasing amplitude producing loss of control. Vehicles that can experience this oscillation include motorcycles and bicycles, skateboards, and in theory any vehicle with a single steering pivot point and a sufficient amount of freedom of the steered wheel, including that which exists on some light aircraft with tricycle gear where instability can occur at speeds of less than 50 mph; this does not include most automobiles. However, coil-sprung vehicles with a track bar setup such as the Jeep WJ, XJ, ZJ, TJ, and JK with both stock and after-market suspension lifts may also have this problem. The initial instability occurs mostly at high speed and is similar to that experienced by shopping cart wheels and aircraft landing gear.

And, many of the fonts in Google's library don’t work well when applied to typical webpage (desktop) layouts. Part of the 25x52 initiative, this collaborative, ongoing project helps provide typographic inspiration for using Google’s web fonts for web applications.
