In late 2003 the Hubble telescope pointed at a small region in the sky (about the size of a 1mm by 1mm piece of paper held a meter away from you) which appeared to have no stars or galaxies in it. For four months it continued to take super-low exposure glimpses of this blank area of the universe. The myriad of images was compiled carefully and in the early months of 2004 this menagerie of the distant universe resulted. An estimated 10,000 galaxies are pictured here.
This image is so utterly mind-blowing, yet we’re inclined to regard it benignly, or at least more benignly than beautiful yet not uncommon occurrences such as the Pillars of Creation. littleFluffyKitty over at reddit does an excellent job of putting the magnificence of this photo into perspective.

wow, just wow.
Amazing. Makes you realize you’re just a tiny little speck in the Universe.
I’d like to quote Mr. Michael Jordan on his take on teamwork.
“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships”
Always remember that boys and girls. :)

A shot of Myke I took using a Canon EF 50mm F1.8II lens. It’s amazing for it’s price. I think the last time I asked it was around 3.5k at Hidalgo. I’m not really sure but I can assure you it’s worth every single penny. It has a maximum aperture of f1.8 which means that this lens is very fast. It’s very useful when you want to highlight a subject by giving it a really shallow depth of field, good for portraits and the likes. This shot was taken at the maximum aperture of f1.8 just to demonstrate how shallow the depth of field can get. What I also like about the lens is that it’s really light and compact perfect for bringing it as an extra lens for those random portrait shots. :)
