Your Shutter bug 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.

I enjoyed Peter McKinnon’s short film about his journey to achieving one of his goals, titled “Bucket Shot” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r25IWquxe9s His aim was to capture the popular Lake Moraine, with snow-covered mountains, while the lake was still liquid. It’s a beautiful scene, and well worth watching the film. Featured image: Laurent Gass PHOTOGRAPHIE, licensed CC…… Continue reading Capturing your bucket shot

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.

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…… Continue reading Colourful computer history
This looks like an awesome way to spend a relaxing weekend, actually.
