Tuesday, May 20, 2008 The Usual Suspects

Hollywood is America culture intensified by several orders of magnitude. That can be unsettling you really don't want to see the real thing, just the movies and television shows.  Perhaps the tourists who show up in the block between Grauman's Chinese Theater and the home of the Oscars, the Kodak Theater, get queasy.

Across the street, with the new Disney sword-and-wizard movie at the El Capitan, you get the mutant jugglers

The lenses used are (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto, or (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED.
