Simon Helberg

Behold the modern nighttime CelebriGum photo! Still mediocre, yet a vast improvement over previous years' fall and winter efforts!

Two pieces of equipment make this possible: a cheap little clip-on LED light which illuminates the ledge, and the Sony DSC-RX100, an impressive pocket-size camera with full manual control, an f1.8 Carl Zeiss lens, and a huge 1 inch 20.2 megapixel sensor that allows for excellent low-light shots at high ISO settings, even with fast shutter speeds for freezing motion.

Your eyes may glaze over at camera specs, but Simon Helberg's engineering nerd character Howard Wolowitz on "The Big Bang Theory" would find them enthralling.

And no, I didn't buy a fancy new camera just for CelebriGum. It's also my "real" camera for non-gum situations:

 Sandy Hook, New Jersey

 Times Square at night

Thank you for your indulgence.


  1. Yes, my eyes did glaze over attempting to read about those camera specs. But the results truly are impressive. As I said in your last entry: gallery-ready. Times Square shot is so evocative. Great eye and work! Thanks for sharing.


    1. Thanks, Jan. I suspect this is my gallery for the foreseeable future.

  2. Blah blah pocket-size blah blah megapixel blah blah Hannah.

    1. It's Jason, the guy who carries over Facebook and Twitter themes to new settings where they'll confuse most people, ladies and gentlemen!

    2. Blah blah thanks!

  3. Ahh very cute family photo. It's good to see the LS lets you out of your writing dungeon for some R and R once in a while.
