This small photo essay has been a long-time dream of mine, but I've never really had the time to actually persue it until now.
Someone on #photogeeks posed an interesting question this morning. Basically asking if people with telephoto lenses shot mostly at the minimum or maximum focal length all the time rather than in between. I thought it would be a neat graph to see.All of the data that I would need to great a chart based on was ready to collect in the EXIF data within the images, I just needed to collect it. So I wrote a script that would scrape, collect and parse the "Focal Length" tag as well as the "Image Digitized" tag.
Back when I was a kid the whole family would gather round the TV console for another exciting episode of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, with the host, Marlin Perkins. Today, at the office, we got a little taste of that show right on our very own ledge.A coworker asked me, "Liem, do you have your big camera with you?"
"Come see this".

I don't consider myself a planespotter, at least not to the degree where I concern myself with tracking tail numbers and such, but I do enjoy sitting at the end of a runway snapping photos of airliners on approach. However, I have found myself a little obsessed with a certain aircraft, which made a recent appearance here in Seattle.I have seen glimpses of this aircraft at various times through the years, usually seeing it sitting down on the tarmac of Boeing field while I drive by on I-5 at 65mph up above.

I've lived in Washington State my entire life. I've traveled and stayed for extended periods in various other regions of the US and I have never found a place as geologically diverse as Washington.
Its always good to challenge one's self with regards to a hobby or skill, so the other day I was put to the test with getting a full moon (the "Snow Moon" as they call it) juxtaposed with the iconic Space Needle. I saw the potential for the shot the morning before during my commute, so I planned to try to capture it the next day, which proved to be clear.
