2020 Year End Review

2020...What A Crap Show

This year sucked in about every way it could have it suck.  From Murder Hornets to Covid-19, this year just straight up blew.  Photography wise, I could probably say the same thing.  I did get a chance to see some things, but mostly before the lockdown.  I got to see eagles released for the first time; however that was a fail also since they opened the crate the wrong way and I was unable to get the shot I really wanted.  After lockdown I made a few trips and those were landscape in nature only.  It usually was so early in the morning so everyone was still sleeping or not thinking to go out.  I usually had any place I wanted completely to myself which not is only nice photographically, but also for the mind as listening to nature is so soothing.  I dabbled in people photos this year too, which was a strange change given the restrictions and mask wearing.  Astrophotography wise, it was a really good year for astronomical events.  We had the Neowise comet which was a spectacular sight.  There were a couple very active meteor showers.  I only participated in a couple as cloudy skies ruined a couple of them and most were shot from the back yard.  The Gemini shower earlier this month was a spectacular sight.  Only problem was the focal point was over the house and it was tough to shoot.  I did see three super bright meteors with my own eyes and stupid me happened to be checking settings on my camera every time, so I only caught one later in the night.  We had a lunar eclipse, but again, clouds.  The convergence of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st was the crown jewel this year for me.  That was a fun and amazing sight to see.  There happened to be a meteor shower that night as well, but again, I only saw them with my eyes and nothing on camera to show for it.  

Okay, enough of the blabbering, here are some shots from this year that I feel happy to share.

  1. That process of reverse engineering becomes a lot easier, after all, when a hacker has physical entry to a slot machine’s innards. By early 2011, casinos throughout central and japanese Europe have been logging incidents by which slots made by the Austrian firm Novomatic paid out improbably massive sums. Novomatic’s engineers might discover no evidence that the machines in query 메리트카지노 had been tampered with, main them to theorize that the cheaters had found out how to to|tips on how to} predict the slots’ behavior. By inspecting rental-car information, Missouri authorities recognized the Lumiere Place scammer as Murat Bliev, a 37-year-old Russian nationwide. The decision to redeploy Bliev to the US would prove to be a uncommon misstep for a enterprise that’s quietly making millions by cracking a few of the the} gaming industry’s most treasured algorithms.
