Nikon Rumor Mill - D9300

Nikon rumors just released one seriously non-detailed rumor that will likely have the internet churning for days on speculation. Supposedly, Nikon is prepping a new camera dubbed the D9300. It will purportedly be a DX sensor and it's numbering suggests that it will be above the D7000 line up. Is this the new camera to replace a D300s or D400? One would hope so. Nikonians have been threatening to rage quit the brand if they don't get a bone thrown to them soon.

As with all rumors, we will have to wait and see...

From 14th to 1rst

James Stewart is a motocross freak. He is 2nd on the all time win list, and is the only second person ever to cap off a perfect season in the pros. 24 wins in 24 races. As I am a huge fan of GoPro - and they are even listed under the sponsors tab (Where you can show your love to the show) - I am on their mailing list of cool videos made by owners. Watch the video below to see James go from 14th to 1rst in yet another win.

Prayer For The Day #7

Prayer For The Day (Written by my wife)

Father God, thank you for looking out for us.  You are an awesome God. You really do have all things in control. So Lord, I just ask that you send peace and comfort to everyone today. Open our understanding and expand our minds to put our total trust in you. Help us realize that you really do come through every time. Lord, we declare victory. In every situation, give us strength to endure.  We declare health, prosperity, joy, peace, unity, and love to overtake us. I just ask for a fantastic day in you, so that in everything that happens, you show us you are in control and that in the end, even in the struggle, you will give us victory. So we just claim that today. We thank you for always coming through for us.  Amen!!!!

Congress Will Vote On Banning Fautographers

A new bill has been proposed by a Massachusetts  Senator that will make it harder for just anyone to pick up a camera and turn it into a way to feed your family. The story broke yesterday, and I am honestly on the fence about how I feel about it.

The regulation would require a contractor licensing fee and permit paid out on a yearly basis, as well as an "exam" to test knowledge.

On the plus side, it would help regulate fees for pros who need to feed your family. Gone will be the photographers that buy a camera one day, have someone tell them how awesome a picture is, and then go into business for themselves and severely undercut all of the legitimate pros out there. If you don't have a license, you will be illegal.

Part of me is cheering over this. Part of me says, "Perfect. Another Government agency to regulate and control me, and a new creative way to take my tax dollars. Because, you know, the Government is always so awesome at regulating everything, and NEVER is out to invent new ways to take my money."

It should also give way to a whole new cottage industry. Business that do nothing but help prepare you to take the test, and little to teach on how to actually be a photographer.

Largest Collection of WWI Photos In The World

Bob Smethurst is a garbage man in Sussex. In the 70's he started collecting WWI photos from the trash. He simply could not bare the loss of these memories to the landfill. Over time, he has amassed over 5,000 photos, and that makes it the largest in the world. If he wanted to now sell them, he could make a sizable amount of money from collectors, but Bob says he is not interested in that. He is more interested in preserving our history. Here are a few photos from his collection.
