"We're having a problem sending email out of the department."
"What's the problem?" I asked.
"We can't send mail more than 500 miles," the chairman explained.
I choked on my latte. "Come again?"
"We can't send mail farther than 500 miles from here," he repeated. "A little bit more, actually. Call it 520 miles. But no farther."

Here's a difference between my experience in mastodon and the birdsite. There I know what people do. It forms a substance to what they say. Social status first, then abbreviated opinion.
Here I have no idea what people do or who they are socially. But I recognise and follow thought patterns, cares, fabrications. It feels like a profound acceptance of what is.
I appreciate this so much.
photog.social is always looking for new #Photographers of all skill levels.
If you know anyone that's looking for a photography heavy instance, can you send them our way?
I create #artwithopensource. A lot of photography currently, but also painting and codeart.

#stellarium [https://stellarium.org/] is a desktop planetarium for linux/win/OS X. It features a huge database of stars, deep sky objects, planets even satellites. It features realistic atmosphere, dusk and dawn simulations, and includes photographs of many known objects. You can even use it to control your telescope.
I use Stellarium in my art and photography both. It is excellent for exploring and learning. It helps me plan astrophotography shoots. It is also useful to identify objects in a photograph or to make informed decisions about the white balance based on star spectrums. https://mastodon.art/media/KriGLGb9s8PJcvo3cn4
A couple of these shots I really wish didn't have such noise issues. However, I'm content with the results.

Somebody told me a few weeks ago, I don’t remember where, that unlike what I claim in my bio (in some networks), people doesn’t seem to avoid me and run away when they see me with my camera. I think this spontaneous picture shows how right I am about that.
I know it is not a perfect portrait but it looks so natural… I think it shows a lot of how her personality is in just one hundredth of a second. The magic of photography…
Two interesting readings on Brexit:
1. If the UK wants to trade with the rest of the EU it still would have to obey EU rules, but won’t be represented in the EU any longer
2. On the management of Brexit, nicely summarized in the first two paragraphs

Last week I had the wonderful pleasure of attending to the X Marcial Moreno Mañas School of Chemistry (#MMM2017) as the official photographer. All of them are building a better future in many ways, and although they are sacrificing their time (and sometimes happiness), very few people will thank them for their hard work. This is my way to show them gratitude. Probably very few of them will see this, but you do and now you are a little bit more aware of their existence and hard work.
Side effect of being able to export/import people you're following as a CSV: you can distribute a "starter kit" of cool people
Chemist, photographer... sometimes also annoying. And lost. Mostly lost. (My flickr/blog/portfolio? just ask, it's free).
