  • I would rather pay for Google Photos

    Photography habits for 2017

    As you may have heard by now, Google is going to start charging for all photos uploaded to Google Photos from June 2021, not just full resolution images. While this may be alarming for some users, I would rather pay for Google Photos. Why would I say such a thing after having an option to […]

  • Serendipitous discovery leads to David Tewes photographic exhibition

    Chris Finke, a colleague at Automattic, discovered a box of slides that were taken by the late David Tewes, Chris’ father-in-law’s cousin while Chris and his wife were going through his late father-in-law’s things.

  • Capturing your bucket shot

    Lake Moraine by Laurent Gass PHOTOGRAPHIE

    I enjoyed Peter McKinnon’s short film about his journey to achieving one of his goals, titled “Bucket Shot” – His aim was to capture the popular Lake Moraine, with snow-covered mountains, while the lake was still liquid.

The video was created from a shoot in Banff, Canada. It’s probably one of the most beautiful regions I’ve every seen, albeit through McKinnon’s video. The mountains, the hills, and the […]

  • Accumulating memories in large photo libraries

    Browsing photo albums

    Jamie Rubin wrote a thought-provoking post on his blog about his accumulated library of photographs, and his thoughts about what to do with it. The problem is that I am not organized about my photos the way I am in other parts of my life. I’ve made reluctant attempts at organization now and then, but […]

  • Whale bones and shadows

    We have a curious structure in one of our city parks that’s a little controversial. Some people really don’t like it, most aren’t sure what it’s supposed to represent. It appeals to me, although I can’t quite work out how to photograph it. I took advantage of a couple evening walks past the park to […]

  • Opportunistic diversions for 2019-04-17

    Man looking at vending machines

    I watched a couple interesting videos that I enjoyed, and thought I’d share: This Engadget video about the differences between DSLR and mirrorless cameras is terrific. Chris Schodt did a great job explaining both camera categories, and the advantages each type has. Well worth watching. Leonardo Da Vinci was clearly a remarkable person, and this […]
