Yesterday I posted an image of the bottom of a glass jug being backlit and giving off a green hue. I captured a few other images of the jug and thought this one was cool enough to share. I like how the manufacturer’s marks come up from the bottom clearly while the imperfections in the glass cause a wavy effect toward the top of the photo.
A few days ago I posted a picture of a Romanesco. This is the same one from a different perspective and in monochrome rather than in color.
At first I wasn’t sure I liked the monochrome. The color of the Romanesco is beautiful and adds a lot to its interest. However, black and white photography has always interested me and I like the way the light and shadows here play on the photo.
Several years ago I wrote about how to export an ArcGIS feature’s attribute table as a CSV file. ESRI didn’t make this extremely intuitive. Since that time I’ve moved into using ArcGIS Pro and thought I’d post about doing the same thing in this application.
It’s even easier to export table records in ArcGIS Pro. You can select a subset of records in your attribute table if you aren’t trying to export the entire thing. Then, right-click on the feature and click Data -> Export Table. Alternatively, click the feature layer “Data” tab and select Export Table. A geoprocessing dialog table will open with a Copy Rows task.
Under the Output Table parameter enter a name for your table with a .csv extention. You can also choose to save your table as a .dbf, in a geodatabase or as a .txt file(comma delimited).
Incidently, if you try to save your table outside of a database but without an extention, the tool will default to exporting as a .dbf file.
This process isn’t difficult but it might throw some people off since you can’t select your extension in any dialog dropdown. You have to type it out yourself.
About a week ago I was at the grocery store when I noticed this beautiful thing nestled between the lettuce and broccoli. I had heard of Romanesco before but had never seen one.
I came back a few days later and bought one. I plan on eating it but my main purpose for buying it was to photograph it. This edible flower bud has an amazing fractal-like appearance and is quite striking to look at.
I’ve actually been in the habit of photographing vegetables for some time although I haven’t been posting them here. Perhaps in the future I will. It’s fun to share amazing natural art work.
Panhandlers and bums are becoming more and more honest and trasparent. It’s become fashionable for them to display signs saying something like “Not gonna lie, I need beer”.
Why can’t businesses be more like today’s forward thinking beggars? I’d appreciate the honesty of a commercial stating “We really don’t care about your needs, we just want your money”?
No one has been more ignored by history than Felix Krautbenschlasser, the inventor of the intermission. Felix never sought to give relief to sedentary opera goers. He was just looking for an excuse to leave boring shows without angering his wife, Hilda.
His first experiment came during a showing of Rigoletto when, during a lull in the singing he made a scene by crying out, “Oh, my thighs ache, I might have a clot!”
It was actually his only experiment because later that night he died from a pulmonary embolism. But after reading his obituary, people started taking breaks during shows.
