GARGOYLES IN VIRGINIA TECH, PART 2 - JUNE 20, 2003

 

Today is a special day. Today is GIF Liberation Day. The ".gif" image file compression format that you and I have played with for years now, was defined in this US patent. And this patent expired today!! Today, Unisys loses control over the LZW compression algorithm that forms the basis of the .gif compression format. (via Slashdot.)

 

And in other news ...

Another one from my gargoyle collection. I have tinted the leaves on the foreground and have converted the background in to black-and-white. 

 

I have managed to get hold of a nice and sturdy tripod. It had been a while since I wanted to do some serious slow-speed, night-time photography. The time has finally come. Hopefully the results shouldn't be too bad.
