I love shooting without a flash. So does Bob and he just published a good public service announcement for shooting without using a flash. (I do like that second shot of Mike a lot.)
There are a bunch of people in the greater identity management world who would consider themselves amateur photographers. I wonder if there is commonality of photography and IdM that practitioners of both find compelling.
From a content perspective, the aspects of a picture I take that I really like are, in some sense, a reflection of me. Maybe this photo/IdM thing comes back to relationships. We are looking for ourselves in our subjects.

One of the things that Mark Mc and noticed was that the identity market is remarkably small. It is definitely a good thing that ex-Access360/IBM, Thor/Oracle, Waveset/Sun guys can break bread and have a laugh over the deals that we used to compete. It’s that (grudging, at times) comradery in this market that I love and it is one the things that makes Catalyst so much fun.
Read this in the Post; the Jefferson Memorial (or at least the walkway near it) is sinking. I’ll save you a trip to DC. Check out my photos of it without having to fight traffic and other tourists.
