Capturing your bucket shot

Lake Moraine, licensed CC BY NC ND 2.0 by Laurent Gass PHOTOGRAPHIE

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

The mountains won’t remember you

I really enjoyed Peter McKinnon’s video titled “The Mountains Won’t Remember Me” for a few reasons. To begin with, his photography is awe inspiring. 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Z0lv6qlj0Q The mountains, the hills, and…… Continue reading The mountains won’t remember you

We decided to head to the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv. I had been to the museum a couple times with our kids,…… Continue reading Family trip to the Eretz Israel Museum

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.

Colourful computer history

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
