Coryn & Dad at the Koln (Cologne) Cathedral - Some very cool pictures

By Andrew Pollack on 03/03/2009 at 11:22 AM EST

I had some challenges in taking these pictures -- you can't use a flash inside the dimly lit Cathedral, for example. These were all taken with my little Casio EXILIM pocket camera without flash or tripod. Where possible, I held the camera against something stationary and gave the shutter as much time as possible.

A favorite trick (with an SLR) is to use the selftimer, and hold it against
something steady. That way presseing the shutter release doesn't blur the
shot.

One trick I saw that was cool -- a length of thin cable or wire connected to a
bolt sized to fit as a tripod connector on the camera. You attach it to the
camera, let it dangle to the ground, and step on the end. The simply hold the
keeping tension on that line. It isn't perfect by any means, but it can make a
difference in dim light and is extremely portable.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
