On photography…

Far from the maddening crowd. I walked away thinking in "Lipstick" they had actually shot part of the film with one of those motor-driven fashion cameras, put directly in the film, it gave a sense of the pressure. Those flashes at events are horrid. The changes in photography have been amazing, though. I once measured 3D info from flat photos in close-range photogrammetry developed by Rollei, brought aerial photos to Earth, from a series of purposefully "oblique" photos then measured on a digitizing "tablet". Canada wanted something for our air-crashes in Gander, Newfoundland (Brits use for car ones). The laser imaging chip was invented at Los Alamos, NM, which has revolutionized “as-built” recording and other uses, CGI in cinematography, architecture, modeling, etc.  I have a new small camera and have gotten used to not holding it up to my eye!
