The slacker is not slacking!

Going to this tomorrow... you should too if you want to play catchup with the new Photoshop! Hopefully photos to post after I learn new things and experiment! And everything else I've been working on I'll get up on here too. I have some links to share too..... oh my goodness I need time to stop so I can catch up with everything!

Get rid of that camera app and get out your camera.

Interesting article on photos taken with phone cameras versus real cameras. Sadly I know some of you are reading this thinking, well duh real cameras are better. Yes, but that doesn't stop us from whipping our phones out to quickly take a photo. I have seen some very nice photos taken with iphones. I'm not talking the photos piled thick with Instagram filters, but just plain ol' iphone photos. The bad thing about these photos, and really any digital photo taken, is that technology moves on faster than we can catch up, and our photos stay frozen in time.

I went to China in 2002. I took countless rolls of film and I think around a thousand digital photos. I recently tried to print out some of those digital photos and was broken hearted to see pixelated junk when I got them back.

So, in that respect, it's kind of funny to read this article and not walk away thinking, well duh.

New York City Corners

I figured this post was fitting since I spent Saturday up at a Yankees game and wandering New York City. I'd post my own photos, but they're all of friends at the game, dinner, and random shenanigans. Well, here's one of me for fun. :)

Anyway, back to my original post.

Street corners, then and now.

And the full website, which is just solely photos of New York City Street corners.

Mandala art

Enjoy these beautiful photos by Kathy Klein.

It's hard to pick only one or two favorite photos to post on here. There are so many stunning mandalas!

Crazy storms

I forgot to post this link last week. Some of you may have lost some power a week or so ago with that crazy storm. Or, perhaps the only effect the storm had on you was not being able to get onto Netflix or Instagram.

This photographer, Jim Reed, got some amazing photos of the storm, and other storms from the past. Check out his recent photos.

One of my favorites from last year.

Space Weather

You all may be sick of me posting NASA links and things of the sort. Well, good news this isn't a NASA link! It's a link! :)

Either way I think you'll enjoy these photos... they're beautiful. The photos usually have information on location, exposure, camera, filters etc.

Here's two of my favorites.

Happy 4th of July!

Been off from work for a few days and have taken up the relaxing bum mode instead. Catching up on lots of air conditioning, reading, movies and relaxation. Tomorrow I will venture out in the world again, into the heat, and enjoy some fireworks!

Here's some tips on getting some good firework photos. Have a happy July 4th!

Come and knock on my door...

A friend posted this image on facebook. I'm trying to get more information on it! I can't imagine it's a functioning building.... but maybe it is!
