One the greatest Guitar Players will play at the Roxodus Music Fest. She goes by the name Orthiani. She has played live on Stage since she was 14 years old. She toured with Alice Cooper. In a way she reminds me of Mick Ronson. Both are simply awesome guitar players, but remain relatively unknown.

Brian Byrne, Lead Singer with “I Mother Earth” performing at WTFest

I own Pentax, Canon, Nikon, FujiFilm and Sony DSLRs. They are all good. Last year I picked a Nikon D7000 refurbished by Nikon. I bought it because I could not afford a Nikon D5. The D7000 apparently uses the same Sony sensor as my Sony A57. The Sony was low priced but is an amazing camera.

The Nikon D7000 is the first DSLR from any make that I do not like. No issues while shooting. Long battery life from the NiMh AA batteries via a Nikon grip. Everything in the field seems fine.

I do not like the way that the photos look. The colour balance can be easily adjusted. But the photos look soft. I have a really sharp 80-200 f2.8 Nikkor which takes sharp photo, even when mounted on a Canon DSLR. I’m not sure if I might not have setup the camera properly. on the D7000. This year I found some new setting on a Photo Forum which I have yet to test.

Anyhow I had some photos of I Mother Earth performing at WTFest last year (2015). I do not like the way they look. I just installed some new software called Silver Project Pro and HDR Projects Pro. I installed both on my internet PC Later on I’ll put them on the PC which I use for Photo Editing. They should work better as a plugin within Photoshop.

Simple and easy to use. Did not read any manual. Just clicked around. Note the original was a compressed Jpeg. Silver Projects Pro saved a very larges Tiff from the tiny Jpg. When I compressed it to Jpeg I could not see any difference between the Tiff and the now much smaller sized Jpeg.

I like the last version – the B&W from Silver Projects Pro. Look at the Saidah Baba Talibah photo. That is in the side bar (might also show in the top header). same lens but different Nikon body. That Saidah photo is super sharp. The Brian Byrne photo, not so much. This was in the day time so I do not think that is due to camera shake.

Mansion In the Sky listed at $250 Million US at 220 Central Park South

Your new Mansion in the Sky is located at 220 Central Park South, in New York City. No, I was not involved in any part of the design of this highrise. It was designed by Robert A.M. Stern. It is being built by Vornado Realty Trust.

The asking price of $250 Million Dollars US, is more than double the price of the next highest price apartment in New York City.

Click on this line to visit the Refinery 29 website to view their post (with professional taken interior photos) titled “This Is The Most Expensive Apartment In New York City“. Well not any more. That apartment is around $120 Million Dollars US. Might be a bargain when compared to the $250 Million Dollar US asking price for the Mansion in the Sky at 200 Central Park South.

The Mansion in the Sky is unique in that it is on four floors. It is a Quadraplex. To make sure that you have enough space to stretch your legs, your new Mansion in the Sky will end up having about 23,000 square feet of living space.

Click on this line to visit The Real Deal website, where they have floor plans for each floor available to check out. Just left click on a floor plan to enlarge it.

Click on this line to visit the Curbed website (by Vox Media) post titled “New Views of Robert A.M. Stern’s 220 Central Park South“.

Call your Banker as soon as possible, as this may sell quickly. There apparently really are two buyers considering buying the apartment err Mansion in the Sky.

“I Mother Earth” Complete Concert at “It’s Your Festival” on July 10 2015, in Hamilton Ontario

I was informed about this video by Dan, a close friend of “I Mother Earth”.

This video is the complete “I Mother Earth” Concert at “Its Your Festival” in Hamilton. I wanted to shoot that show, but there was no way that I get out to Hamilton on July 10 2015.

Thanks to the gcarn YouTube channel for creating this video and making it available on YouTube.

I Mother Earth” is an amazing band. I’ve seen them do a hour and half set and then come off stage and immediately do a meet and greet with fans. No break whatsoever. This is group of Musicians, “who really care about their fans“.

The first time that I saw “I Mother Earth” perform was at Cosmo MusicFest. They set lasted about 1.5 hours and on a very sunny day. After their set finished the band did not head to an air-conditioned area. Instead they all headed to the side of the stage for a meet and greet with their fans. No break what so ever. Rarely does one see such commitment by a Band to their fans.
