Streetlights in the rain
Olympus E-P3 with a non-M43 lens
Experiment in bokeh
Michael Zhang · Aug 16, 2011
Reddit user rocketchef strapped a GoPro video camera to a bike helmet and had their two-year-old daughter wear it during a trip to the playground. The resulting footage is a fun look at what the world looks like to a two-year-old.
Here’s what the setup looked like (seen at 1:47 in the video):
I can’t remember a single thing I did when I was two, so it would have been pretty awesome if my parents had strapped a camera to my head!

The following photos were taken with the Olympus E-P3,
trying out a fisheye lens for the first time on a whim.
I was pleasantly surprised,
not having seen a lot of fisheye photos I had really liked.
And it just so happened that the painter
just then painted the ramp.
Looks like I’ll keep it.

About a month ago, I felt a lifting of the burden to painstakingly try to expose what’s really going on in the world and how America is getting jacked. I had posted for me a record number of posts in June. My guess was that perhaps people are finally getting it, which has been my main goal at ToBeFree. My thinking was that hardly anyone seems to want to seek and obey God these days. The majority seem to be living in partysville — “Don’t worry, be happy!” But if they knew the condition we are really in and how much time we have left….
I just now posted this screenshot that I tweaked, and I thought: this is it. People must be finally getting it now — what so many of us have been trying to warn us about for many years. It’s been so frustrating…
Well here it is, proof that we’re getting jacked. This doesn’t just happen by accident. The Devil has been in charge because the ‘church’ has been asleep. It’s not God’s fault: Howard Storm: The Future of the United States — It’s not God’s fault…. We let Him down. He was ready…

Satan’s plan is now being allowed to happen so fast that it seems that we will actually experience the Book of Revelation in our lifetimes, maybe sooner than later. We better get ready, which is what my spiritual site ONEcanhappen is all about.
Let’s do it, please?
Will you help, making sure you are right with anyone you’ve hurt, and help others do this so revival can come — so the coming years can be the highest point in our lives, not the lowest.
ONE can happen!
I put up this at ONEcanhappen on July 18:
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
The Achan Factor — Because of one man’s disobedience the entire nation of Israel had to deal with the “Achan factor” among them before they could come under the umbrella of Almighty God’s blessings once again!
If we build it He will come:

Let’s be free!
And by the way, I still plan on continuing my ToBeFree blog, but I don’t feel like I have to prove as much my claims that secret societies, international banksters controlled by Satan is actually succeeding in taking us down.
ToBeFree has almost 5,000 posts in which I have articles proving just about everything. It’s been a frustrating time in my life. I feel like I’ve been in the Château d’If like Edmond in the movie, The Count of Monte Cristo.
Here is Mercedes questioning Edmond for the first time since he was taken away:
Mercedes: Where have you been?
Edmond: 13 Years in the chateau d’if and everywhere else you can imagine.
Mercedes: The Chateau d’if for 13 years!
Edmond Did you suffer?
I watched this movie again, a couple of times recently, and I don’t usually re-watch movies. It really hit home with me. It’s a wonderful tale of love, suffering, joy, jealousy, finding forgiveness and to a certain extent, God.
Here is what the the always positive and thankful priest (unlike Edmund) wrote on Edmund’s dungeon’s cell wall:
SO NEGLECT BECOME OUR ALLY
It’s hard to be positive when times are so dark, but had I not been alone all of these years I probably wouldn’t have been able to research and be able to write what I’ve found.
And guys, it is possible to not succumb to the low-cut-top epidemic which this movie does suffer from: The Low-Cut Top Epidemic: May We Be Holy. We need to be very careful to guard our eyes, or it’s best to not watch it — really.
That’s really the only warning I have regarding this movie. It’s truly an amazing drama!
8/4 Correction: I removed what I wrote about the tele, having believed a just-released test that I now think has problems — now having done my own test with my own and a borrowed lens from a friend.
The following 15 photos were taken with my new compact camera, the Olympus PEN E-P3 on Sunday morning, mostly in downtown Anchorage.
I’ve been waiting for this just-released upgrade of the E-P2 for about a year. In a few areas it’s not quite what I had hoped, but I decided to jump in anyway, and I’m glad I did!
The sensor could still use some improvements, but the color is improved, which is a huge factor for me, and the auto focus speed is now state of the art.
In these photos, I hope you can tell that I was having a lot of fun! The camera is a riot with the lenses that I’ve carefully chosen. I only used the normal lens once in all of these shots — for Towering Motel only.
Incidentally, the Olympus micro 4/3rds PEN cameras are considered compact cameras, but they’re much larger than the compacts I’ve been discussing on this site [upgrades for most should be announced soon]. None of them will go wide or long enough for what is the sweet spot for me. And this camera also has the image quality of being able to shoot fairly large gallery prints if there is adequate light.
The full-sized sensor (and much bigger and heavier) Canon 5D Mark II still blows it away in many categories, and will still be my mainstay for the premeditated, highest quality shots, but this will fulfill the very exciting compact-carry niche.
I hope you enjoy the photos,
and God bless!

What is Anchorage’s new statue sitting there thinking? “Why does Alaska still support Sarah Palin, the OPPOSITE OF RON PAUL on foreign interventionism?” — & — “Why did ‘Christians’ in this town vote for George W. Bush, the OPPOSITE OF JESUS on foreign interventionism, TWICE?”
