Without dark, there would be no light. Without light, there would be no dark.

Is that Wacky Tacky? I got mine today, I guess I need to figure the stuff out, because it's not really feeling awesome yet.

@hilmterry you only need as such as will fit under 1 fingernail. Then spread it on your two index fingers and rub your index fingers and thumbs together to warm. Then apply center out, using as few strokes as possible - and then let it set for a minute before you touch it again. You'll get the hang of it.

fav! very classy man. Did you get that new lens in? I'd imagine this is it

You're looking kind of two-tone.

I've never used wax on myself. One time a guy at a haberdashery in St. Paul put some wax on the tips of my handlebar, pulling the hair and shaping the curls. It was rather awkward. I figure my moustache curls naturally anyway, so what do I need wax for?

actually, without light, there would be no light. Right. I mean, you're without it, right? When I'm without peanut butter, I usually have bread.. otherwise, I would not be frustrated

brandon says:
thanks guys!

@mattyc I overexposed it in camera at F1.4, so a really shallow DOF that threw most of my skin just slightly out of focus and blown out. Then I pumped up the blacks and contrast levels just a bit.

@ace and @yourfavorite Yeah, this is the new lens. Still learning its nuances but so far I like it. A lot.
