A blog about photography, reading, the San Jose Sharks, and anything else that comes to mind.
I'm a fan of the +Plus One Collection and their yearly collection that is put together every year with proceeds going towards a charity. This year that charity is the Samburur Project, a charity bringing clean water to areas in Kenya. The Photographers For Good Foundation oversees the project that is primarily spread through the very large photography community on Google Plus. Hundreds if not thousands of photos are submitted every year and the top photos of then put together into a book that is for sale. The other photos not selected for the book are shown on the project's website. You can check out the current submissions here.
It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
