Inebriated Naked Apes Hollering at the Cosmos

Here are the remaining finished photos from a recent touch up session.  I recently received an excellent gift in the form of an informative, easy to read digital photography by Scott Kelby.  Hopefully the knowledge contained within will manifest itself through the lens.  This was the book was really easy to absorb and approaches learning how to maximum your camera quickly.  Sometimes it is better to do before understanding all the reasons and concepts behind it is whatever you are doing.  Books can only help you so much, though they remain excellent sources of knowledge and entertainment (hopefully some of both at once).

That being sad there is one book I read recently that I want to recommend.  It is titled The Naked Ape and was written by Desmond Morris.  The Naked Ape is an old school book, published in 1967.  Despite its’ age, which can be seen in its’ viewpoint of homosexuality, it otherwise appears to have held up.  Insights into the origins of man, and why humans developed the way they did.  I am glad it avoided going to far into cultural evolution, focusing on the biological and environmental reasons for the transformation from ape to human.  It is written for laypeople to understand.  Morris did an excellent job connecting the ideas to concrete examples and avoiding jargon.  Information is freedom.  More importantly, information is essential to being able to recognize situations and respond accordingly, a skill inherited from our ancestors to survive in a world not yet conquered by the human race.  So check out the book if you are in the mood for an interesting read.

These are old pictures from City Market up in Capitol Hill.  One of the perks of walking around that area is the clerk who doubles as an artist.
