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

I watched a couple interesting videos that I enjoyed, and thought I’d share: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5PvHlk3yig 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. https://twitter.com/ChrisSchodt/status/1117883051973865473 Leonardo Da Vinci was clearly a remarkable person,…

Whiteboarding future greatness

“White Boarding our exceptional 2019” by Kelsey Merkley, licensed CC BY 2.0 I really like this photo that Kelsey shared on Flickr. What I like about this are the shadows, and the contrasts on the whiteboard.

Erik Witsoe’s timeless photography

One of the photographers I follow is Erik Witsoe. I see his work when I scroll through my Flickr feed, and I really like his style.

Chanukah 2018 memories

Chanukah (aka Hanukkah) is my favourite festival on the Jewish calendar. Hanukkah (/ˈhɑːnəkə/HAH-nə-kə; Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה‬ ḥanuká, Tiberian: ḥanuká, usually spelled חֲנוּכָּה‎, pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew, [ˈχanukə] or [ˈχanikə] in Yiddish; a transliteration also romanized as Chanukah or Ḥanukah) is a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time…

Winter colours at sunset

Winter is settling in here in Israel. I noticed a particularly pretty sunset today. A pretty early Winter sunset

Autumn light on the stairs

I like how the Autumn sunlight streams in the window in this staircase. I thought I’d try capture it in between work shifts. [gallery ids="40765,40764,40763,40762,40761,40760" type="rectangular" orderby="rand"]

Colourful computer history

Liked Guide to Computing — docubyte by an author (docubyte)

I love James Ball’s colourful photographic history of computers. These machines are grossly under-powered compared to the devices we use today. Still, they’re a wonderful reminder of how far we’ve come, and what lies ahead for us in technological terms. This Telefunken RA770 (circa 1970) is one of my favourites: Via The Stylish & Colorful…
