Visual Science Lab posts 1300th blog and this week we'll hit ten million pageviews. Wow. Lotta work. Lotta eyes.

Scrabble game at the in-laws house. I love the simple solution in the front right corner. "Io" in two directions and "oi" in two directions. That's fun. Taken with the Kodak DCS SLR/n and a Nikon 50mm 1.8 AFD lens. Handheld after turkey, stuffing and pie. Lots of pie.

Putting words together is like swimming or photographing. It gets easier or better or both the more you practice.  You learn what to keep and you learn what to throw out and it all makes better sense. If you've been a long time reader, thank you very much for hanging in there. If you are new to the blog don't worry; we only do these self-congratulatory missives at big milestones. For me, anything with the number "ten milliion" is a big deal.  

A banal photo of the table topper at P. Terry's Hamburger restaurant in Westlake Hills, Tx. I just like the way the 70-210mm Nikon lens looks on the Kodak digital camera. In a short phrase: Sharply mellow.


  1. Or mellowly sharp. Thanks!!!

  2. Congratulations, Kirk! That's a lot of posts, and a lot of page views. There is a reason for that many pageviews. I always find it interesting to drop by your blog and see what you are up to, and especially like the "thought provoking" posts the best.

  3. Congrats Kirk, really like VSL...glad you decided to give it a second life a while back.

    I am a custom picture framer and I had a customer (McDonalds franchise owner),
    bring in a poster to frame today of one of the first McDonalds, with 1 Million Served, as the bragging rights on the sign out front...
