Wolfeboro, N.H.: No ‘First Night’ For 2017 (i.e., December 31, 2016) BUT There Is A ‘Last Night’.

by Anura Guruge


I said that this was a possibility in my December 12, 2016, “No First Night” post.

Well, it has become a reality.

Shame it ends at 10pm — hence why it is ‘Last Night’ (2016) as opposed to ‘First Night’ 2017.

A Sony Alpha a7 III: a7 II Full Frame With Sony a6300/6500 Sensor Technology?

by Anura Guruge

Occurred to me the other night. The full-frame Sony Alpha a7 II now kind of plays second fiddle to the a6500 because of its new sensor technology (which, to be fair, is the same as that on the a6300).

Would have to assume that Sony is working on this. In terms of timing my guess (which is purely that) is a March 2017 announcement — probably with June 2017 availability.

Given that the MP size is 24MP what this means is that the a7 III pixel will be LARGER; 5.9 microns vs 3.9 microns on the APS-C sensor. And this is where things start getting muddy and murky. Some argue, passionately, that bigger pixels (also called greater ‘pixel pitch’) always translates to better pictures. I am not convinced — from a theoretical standpoint. Though I used 35mm I have never used a Full-Frame digital. So, I don’t have first hand experience.

Something to think about.

Sri Lanka’s Supposed World’s Tallest Christmas Tree Looks Pretty Ugly — Yikes.

Unlit it does NOT look good. Awkward shape. Very phallic!

Now could it be that the Sri Lankan Buddhists who actually built it are TAKING THE MICKEY.

I am not sure what to think.

Mexico City's tree, at 110 meters -- looks quite decorative.

Mexico City’s tree, at 110 meters — looks quite decorative.

Sure does NOT look right. If anything it is an eyesore in what is a very scenic, seaside setting.

Maybe it has to come down. Soon …

The one in Mexico City, at 110 meters, was conical, and looked quite nice — even during the day. 

Not sure what to say.

I just can’t see something as ugly as this lasting too long in 70% Buddhist Sri Lanka irrespective of who built it.

Come On! 

This was no accident. It was a put-up-job — no doubt by a clique of Sri Lankan Buddhists.

You have to admit it is FUNNY.

First all the to-and-froing about the “World’s TallestChristmas tree, with Cardinal Malcolm Ranjit, the ‘Tanned Ratzinger‘, not being able to make up his mind.

And now this.

Big event like this and nobody proofed, then checked the program.

Never heard of this Priest De Silva but he sure must know by now what it is like to be on the carpet.

Thought I think it is funny, I really do think the Sri Lankan Buddhists should stop pranks like this. {SMILE}
