    There is no one right way to compose a shot, but, a simple tip that can be very effective for landscape-style shots is to find a shadow and get into it – by shooting from within a shadow you can use the shadow to add foreground interest and depth to your shot. It can be a big shadow or a little shadow. As a bonus, if the sun is low, getting into a bigger shadow is also a great approach for keeping your own shadow out of your shots.

      Great tutorial on Regular Expressions! I admit this is a concept that even throws experienced programmers like me for a loop (heh, a little programmer humor there 😉 )

      If you want to play around with regular expressions outside of the terminal, RegexPal is a great site for that.

      It is a great interactive site that has a text box where you can type in a regular expression, and another text box where you can paste in any sample text. The site will highlight parts of that text that match your regular expression.

      Another pretty good regular expression tutorial can be found here:

      This is an article that I found on a great site for iOS and Mac developers that I frequent. It teaches how to use regular expressions when writing iOS and Mac apps. But if you ignore the code-y bits, it also serves as an excellent tutorial on the syntax of regular expressions.

      And finally, here is a great PDF cheat sheet of the regular expression syntax. I’ve put this in my Evernote in my “Important Reference Materials” notebook so I always have it handy.

      “Spreeuw” is apparently a Dutch word, but it is apparently used to describe a species of bird (a starling I believe.) So yeah, I guess it can be considered a “valid” word in /usr/share/dict/words.
