I am in drinking Off Center IPA by Flounder Brewing Co, a Nano Brewery in Hillsborough. Off Center IPA is an IPA - Brut, with an ABV of 6 and IBU of 0. I gave this beer a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

BREWER’S NOTES

Hopped with Wakatu, Amarillo, and Huell Melon, this fizzy brew tickles the nose with aromas of honeydew melon and mild apricot. With a complex interplay of delicate citrus and floral flavors, our Brut IPA is complemented by a sparkling yet extra dry finish.

I am in drinking Up 2 No Good Again by Troon Brewing, a Micro Brewery in Hopewell. Up 2 No Good Again is an Stout - Imperial Milk / Sweet, with an ABV of 11 and IBU of 0. I gave this beer a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

BREWER’S NOTES

Imperial milk stout brewed with lactose and then conditioned on beautiful E Timor beans from Rojo's Roastery as well as twice the amount of coconut as Panicked Hare, but this time left untoasted to lend more of a confectionery vibe.

Until I start my new gig next week, I have a lot of time on my hands. This week I found myself perusing my Adobe Lightroom catalogue revisiting and re-editing some of my earlier photos. There was a time when I shot with more basic camera equipment, my image composition and understanding of light and the technical aspects of photography were limited, and my photo editing skills were less developed. In some ways, I think some of my earlier images are stronger than some of my recent images.

The image above is one I took eight years ago (August 2010) on a day after my wife had her hair done. I wanted to capture the look but I also wanted to experiment with portraiture, my newly purchase AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens and the golden hour. I captured her portrait in the Montgomery Veterans Park in Belle Mead, Montgomery Township.

This time around, I used Nik Define 2 to remove some noise in the image, and then use the output sharpener in Nik Sharpener Pro 3.
