Photoshop Cream

This is an interesting fake ad floating around the internet...

Click here to see more from this graphic artist. And we wonder why plastic surgery is becoming so common's because everything we see is fake.

Hidden Pool

This Youtube video shows a very cool new pool idea. I admit I watched it on mute, after hearing the first few seconds and getting annoyed. ha!

Or if you would like to skip the video and just check out the business' website, here it is.

I foresee this preventing pool crashers while you're away!

Lost your camera?

This website helps owners find their lost cameras! Finders of the cameras post one or two photos found on the camera in hope that friends, family or even the owner might visit the site and claim the camera.

Reminds me of the underwater Canon found a month or so ago...Link

Christmas Ideas #5

This Christmas Ideas post is geared more towards Architecture Nerds... but it's pretty awesome. Little models you can buy! It's like studio all over again!

My favorite: Glasgow School of Art.

Finch & Fouracre have their own blog. Check their Christmas models out. Cute!

Beautiful Libraries

Perhaps if all libraries were as beautiful as some of these, people would spend more time in them.

One could only hope.

Click on (my favorite) photo to see 24 more college and university libraries that take the cake.

Christmas Ideas #4

These little pouches are cool little presents for nerdy photography lovers. Very cute.

Click on the zipper pouch to go to the BlueQ website to see more!

And no, no one is asking/paying me to post these Christmas ideas. They're just interesting things I've come across while doing my Christmas shopping!

Christmas Ideas #3

This is super cool and pocket sized! At first glance I just thought it was a thumb drive shaped like a camera.

Very fun. Click on the photo above to view an artsy little video about it, and read up on the Mini USB Camera some more!

Christmas Ideas #2

Think Geek is a very addictive retail website. I end up getting a lot of gifts for all the geeks and nerds on my list (and me!). Here are two photography related items that would make perfect gifts for the photography nerd in your life!

Lego Digital Camera:
3 megapixels but still lots of fun.

Night Vision Camera:

A tad bit more expensive than the Lego camera, and way cooler. Takes photos in complete darkness. Check out the link for the specs.

Ah. I can't visit their site without buying something. Darnitall.

Christmas Ideas #1

For those of you who live in the Bucks or Montgomery Counties, and also like to support small businesses, don't forget about the County Theater and the Ambler Theater! All theaters across the nation have to convert to a digital projector. Small, independent movie theaters are having a tough time with the $100,000 per projector price tag.

Donating in an avid movie theater goers name is a great gift idea! Keep independent movie theaters alive!

Ambler and County Theater's blog is here.

Cell phone apps

With the development of Paper Camera, Retro Camera, FX Camera (just to name a few)... photographs don't really need to have an interesting subject. It seems like the effects of the filters are cool enough that taking a photo of a rock is suddenly an awesome photo. It is sad on one hand, but on the other hand, when you think about old photos in your parents photo albums, what is it that makes them interesting? Is it the dated subject matter? The sepia finish? The square format? Or is it just that it is someone you know?

Some of my favorite photos of people are blurry, dark, and not something you would typically call a good photo.

I'm just rambling here... :)

Spice up your walls

I love this. Love it love it. I feel you could have a lot of fun with this.

Fun, like this:

Vanishing Cities

Interesting... not just abandoned houses (my secret fetish!), but entire abandoned cities! Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy these cities are abandoned, but they make for very interesting photographs and an interesting story.

Very cool photos if you click on the photo above.... or if you Google photos of Hashima Japan. Also, this blog has some great photos. Hashima was featured in Life After People on the History channel.Link

Random fun photos

Had some fun taking some random photos the other day... thought I'd share one.
