According to Mitt Romney it’s not Wall Street that America Needs to worry about – it’s Sesame Street.

It’s an entirely fair charge, in the last debate Mitt expressed a lot of concern over the PBS portion of the deficit, which amounts to .012 percent. President Obama talked about combating Welfare fraud,  which comprises billions in waste. Who do you think is going to be more effective at reducing deficits?

The other key thing to remember is that we had Romney’s current fiscal style of thinking in office in the 7 year run up to the recession, who do you think is more likely to prevent a future crash? President Obama will keep regulations in place that will keep Wall street from playing fast and loose with other people’s money, while Mitt Romney is more likely to cut his Bain buddies and their offshore accounts loose in a wild west casino economic policy.

Pseudo Ansell

Here’s what you can do to approximate an Ansel Adams photo with a modern DSLR — it’s only f.22 compared to some of his which were f.64 – but that was the smallest aperture I could get with the crappy kit (18-55 mm) lens & not putting a filter on. I took this with a tripod at 3 seconds for exposure time, with the lens set to widest angle, 18mm. After shooting this I took all of the luminance and color vibrance out of the .RAW file before processing in Photoshop. The jpg compression needed to get it “blog consumable” also loses a lot of the detail. (in the full sized photo you can see individual slots in the hubcaps of the truck in the background)
