"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind."

- Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

You may have seen him in the March issue of Popular photography, where is do-it-yourself setup for long exposures of passing lights while driving got him a three-page spread.

I greatly enjoy visiting Ben, Nikki and Liam online via Flickr. Ben is a fantastic photographer who constantly offers interesting glimpses into his daily life and his surroundings. Long live Ben McLeod of Clan McLeod! Sorry -- my nerdy "Highlander" knowledge is showing.
