The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not. I transferred over my past catalogs of photos over to Lightroom Classic and eagerly began opening up some of my favorite photos.

Just finished reading Open: An Autobiography by Andre Agassi. If you were a tennis fan in the '90's, or a tennis player in general this is a MUST read. It was startlingly honest, funny, sad, and triumphant. I expected the book to be many things, but I didn't expect to laugh out loud at it (with it?) or cry. This was an excellent start to 2010: The Year of the Reading.

Just picked up Pete Sampras' autobiography, and there's a marked different between the two. Where Agassi's chapters were just numbers, Pete's are titled with the years spanned in the chapters. Pete's book has an index (!) while Andre's just finishes. I'm expecting Pete's book to be a little dryer than Andre's, but I could be wrong. I came into Agassi's book expecting it to be wild and crazy (which it kind of was), but didn't expect to get so involved in it.

On an unrelated note this is posting #2 for the year, and for the week. So far so good in keeping this updated regularly.
