For those of you that like my yearly Lotusphere photoset on flickr, you can find this year’s Lotusphere 2010 Photo Set here. Let me know if there are any particular photos you folks really like (or dislike for that matter.)
Our Sun (Week 4), originally uploaded by Greyhawk68.
Here is Professor Brian Cox (@profbriancox on Twitter) of the Large Hadron Collider project with a photograph of our sun behind him. His speech to close Lotusphere 2010 was awesome and it’s amazing how small and insignificant we really are in this whole universe.
Lotus Knows I’ll Miss These People, originally uploaded by Greyhawk68.
This is how you know Lotusphere is done, when the community take the stage for the final photo each year.
I truly love many of these people, and miss them when we aren’t at our family reunion.
Safe travels everyone, look forward to next year.
Many thanks to Volker Weber (vowe) for using my camera to take this photo

In my resolutions I stated that I wanted to do more with my photography this year, and with that I’m going to try to do my 52Week project where I post one photo I’ve taken and produced every week. This is my one from last week, and I’ll post this weeks soon. Enjoy!
Lotusphere2009-93 (3/52), originally uploaded by Greyhawk68.
Well for my 52 Weeks project, I was going to be in Orlando for Lotusphere for Week three. I had planned on doing some nice HDR stuff, or maybe a long exposure of water at one of the fountains, but just never got around to it. So, I went through all the pictures I took at Lotusphere and tried to grab the best one.
I had some good candid portraits of Conductor Ben Zander ( http://www.benjaminzander.com ) and I had some artsy stuff of a set of lights, but I think this one is just perfect.
It captures him coming on stage, frames him with his background up on the screen and his piano. He has a great look on his face, and it captures the motion. So even though this isn’t the shot for the week I set out to challenge myself with, it’s the one I’m going with because I like it a lot.
Hope you do too. Now on to Week 4!

Howdy all, this is a picture of my co-worker and developer extraordinaire Mike McGarel ( http://www.bleedyellow.com/blogs/McGarelGramming/ ) that appeared on the Lotusphere Closing General Session video. I figured this would be a good one for a caption contest. Now Mike is a very nice guy and has to put up with myself and Declan on a daily basis, so he’s already putting up with a lot, so be kind 🙂
Anyway, my caption borrows from a recent LOLCat that I saw:
“Mike’s enthusiasm for Lotusphere suddenly became unsettling”
What else can you come up with?
My photos from the OGS weren’t as good in my opinion as year’s past as I was as an angle due to being in the blogger pit (not that I’m complaining.) For Ben Zander’s closing session it was a lot better as I was about fourth row center. I think I got some really good portraits of him. I WAS going to get some additional outdoor evening photos but that ran into a snag as I sat down and talked with Duffbert , Paul Mooney , and Jamie Magee in the Dolphin bar instead. Oh well, maybe next year, heh.
