Media consumption

Family vacations are a perfect time for media consumption. Here’s what I was into:

Complete Digital Photography, by Ben Long. Borrowed and skimmed a copy, planning to buy. It’s fabulous. Lots of detailed explanation of how digital cameras and photo editing software works. If you’re baffled by terms like “color management” and “alpha channels”, this book will make you happy.

Strip Tease, by Carl Hiaasen. Fun, light vacation reading. Hiaasen is my default vacation author. They made the book into a movie a few years ago.

A1A, by Jimmy Buffett. Bob and Mike and I had this playing in the car on the drive up to Mineral King. Been a long time since I listened to Buffett. It was like coming home. “Life is just a tire swing…” is still twanging in my head.
