Our PB!

                                    video

That is ++Katharine Jefferts Schori with the cozier at the end of the procession. Note the symmetrical vestments! (See my previous remarks about her and her vestments.) This video was shot using a Kodak EasyShare C340 at Saint Thomas' Episcopal, Dallas on the first of the Rogation Days when our Presiding Bishop blessed the parish's new community garden. There were almost as many Episcopalians from Forth Worth there as there were from Dallas. Oh and I'm such a church-geek, I got my BCP autographed by the PB. ;-)

The BBC & Threats to Photographers

The BBC discusses serious threats to non-professional photographers and not from whom you might think either. The article is very good and the Magazine section of BBC News | UK sees to have only suffered some, not all, of the design "improvements" that have been applied elsewhere. For a discussion on the worth of those "improvements" you can read the comments sections on the BBC's Richard Porter's blog entry Clear Band and on the New News blog post by the BBC's Peter Horrocks.

Personally, I think the old look to the BBC website was a little dense, but now I think they've gone and swung the pendulum way too far in the opposite direction. Interestingly enough, I wonder if the thinning of the design doesn't make the news coverage look more shallow, even if it isn't. [I live in the US, therefore I do not lack for access to shallow news. {Sigh}] Does a sparse design cause reporters to write more sparsely or did the denser design make their writing look more in depth?

Requiescat In Pace

2004 Photo of Bishop Frank Vest

I've met quite a number of bishops, including a couple of the primate type, but one of the ones I've known the best passed on just over a week ago. I found out not from seeing the headline from Episcopal Life Online in the little box of headlines on the bottom of the main page of my blog, but from the title of a podcast from St. John's, Boston Avenue, where I attended for six months while The Rt. Rev. Frank Harris Vest, Jr., was serving as an interim rector.

Christ Church, Phila.

                                    video

The bells of Christ Church, Phila. were cast at the same foundry in England as the Liberty Bell, the only difference is that the church bells still work!

This video was shot on the morning of Sunday, 6 April 2008 on American Street in Philadelphia using a Kodak EasyShare C340.
