Sorry, no picture this time, but I really felt this was worth checking out.
John Hopkins recently released an album, "Immunity", and one of the tracks on there is just sublime. It's called Abandon Window:
I advise you to plug in a set of high quality headphones and turn up the volume to fully appreciate it. There is some masterful sound design and production going on in there. He manipulates the bits of reverb so well, it makes me rather jealous. I suspect there's also a good deal of field recording embedded in the noise that builds up throughout.
You can buy just this track here: Abandon Window on Beatport
Or get the whole album here: John Hopkins's "Immunity" on Beatport
Took this one on a nightly walk yesterday. Full size
If I recall correctly, it was a 10 second exposure.
Here's another picture. About 30 seconds after this picture everything was getting soaked.
Inspired by Digitally Imported's "Space dreams" channel, to which I go to sleep every night, I wrote something in the same kind of style.
It's a whopping 8 minutes long, and I wrote it in 3 sessions.

Thanks for listening!
TL;DR: I made this: Instaud.io - quick and easy audio sharing for audio producers (music producers, singers, musicians, voice actors, sound designers...)
Over the past few months I've been working on a simple website for super simple audio file sharing. The target audience is musicians like you and me, who like to frequently share bits of work in progress on social networks or over IM, to get some feedback before finishing the final product and uploading it to the NGAP, SoundCloud, or what have you.
The main objective is to make it quick and simple, and I like to think that's what it is right now.
All you do is drag a file onto the page (or use a conventional upload button), wait for it to upload, and you get redirected to a very simple page with just a big audio player, under a short URL.
You can click on the progress bar in the player to advance to somewhere in the file, just like you would with any audio player. The difference is that the URL updates to include the time point you've selected. This lets you link to a specific point in an audio file, which makes it all the more useful for feedback.
Here's an example of an audio page: http://instaud.io/t
(That's my attempt at playing a simple version of Requiem for a Dream, but I digress.)
You don't need a user account or anything, you just get on there, upload your file, and you're done.
You have the chance to delete the file again as long as you don't close your browser. If you still need a file deleted after that, you can use the link in the footer.
I hope y'all find it useful!
I'm quite happy with the lighting and composition in this one. This 55-200mm lens does good stuff for its price too. Full size
Note: this is straight out of the camera, no adjustments made.

I'm out on holiday in Scotland for a week, and I got the chance to take a photo of something very very Scottish: a man wearing a traditional kilt, playing the bagpipes. Bonus long beard, too.
And that is probably the best photo description I'll ever come up with. [Larger]
