On January 18, 2012, thousands of sites will go dark to protest SOPA & PIPA, two US bills that Congress is trying to push through that threatens free speech and innovation on the Internet. It effectively invokes Internet censorship, all under the banner of anti-piracy efforts. For more information go to http://americancensorship.org.

Hope everyone had a rewarding and prosperous 2011. Jessica was pretty sick down the home stretch, so we rang in the New Year hanging with Dick Clark. For those of you with an iPhone, there is a cool camera app called 6x6 that emulates a 6x6 medium format film camera. The viewfinder is as if you are looking directly at the ground glass. For those who are unaware, most modern cameras have a prism that flips the image in the viewfinder to reflect how your eye sees the scene. When looking directly at ground glass, the image is flipped/reversed (no mirrors). It takes a little getting use to when framing your photo (left means right, right means left). 6x6 has a black and white mode that gives a nice film feel to the image. I love the square format and hopefully you'll come to enjoy it too. The following is a series of candid shots on Christmas morning.
