Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

Rather like anything else that T. Gilliam names his... I give you Zero Theorem. As deep and byzantine as 'Twelve Monkeys' (which is in my top 5) and something I use as a first line people sorter, you'll either love it or hate it.

This is an alley behind the Magic Mile... an alternate universe... that which grows exponentially beneath the facade.

I see a lot of similarities in the street scenes from Zero Theorem (clip below) and this one. I think we are probably just a couple of twitches away from that reality... our new norm.

Lightbox... definitely

A shout out to Daniel Zuercher for the spotlight. He makes it look so easy.

Also, many thanks to Massimo Bardelli for the gifted spotlight. His creativity and take on photography so worth the click.

    Great aperture choice to provide sufficient detail to the darker foreground as well as the center focus. And yes, we continue to define the urban experience in myriad ways.
