And while we’re on the subject of IKEA… What the hell is this?
I use a trick with co-workers when we’re trying to decide where to eat for lunch and no one has any ideas.
Last night while driving home, I stopped at Lions Park to take my Picture of the Day. When there, I noticed that the path looked clear, possibly enough to bike on. Excited by this, I stupidly told Cate about that this morning, cursing me.
This is what I woke up to:
Guess I’m not biking outside this weekend.
I bought some new toys and was playing around with them… This wasn’t even a real picture, but when I opened it in Lightroom, I saw this. Quite proud of myself if I do say.
The Brigade issued three top tips to help people avoid getting into tricky situations:
- Common sense is needed – if it doesn’t look safe, it probably isn’t, so don’t do it!
- If you use handcuffs, always keep the keys handy
- Fingers and electrical appliances don’t mix, especially those with blades
Would someone please explain to me why I bought Aperture when I was looking for the step up from iPhoto? I really have no logical reason, and now that I switched just before Christmas, I really wish I had done it sooner.
In my post-Everpix shakeup, I had briefly considered going to plain files in a folder structure, like a lot of people on the internet were suggesting. With Lightroom, I get that for free.
Lightroom is actually usable on my 2011 MacBook Air, while Aperture… it works but it isn’t fun.
The tools that come by default in Lightroom are easier to use. I’m sure with some work I could make Aperture do the same thing, but a lot more guides exist for Lightroom, as well as more plugins and canned presets.
Anyway, I’m much happier now. Yay!.
From Lowering the Bar
This might be where the term “Yankee ingenuity” came from, although if it was, somebody was being sarcastic
And people say patents are dumb.
Nobody (I hope) feels comfortable working around a bug this way. Almost every time you’re performing code after a delay you know something’s going wrong, and you’re just guessing and hoping that it works.
Amen. Also, manually invoking garbage collection.
“The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You.” I had heard this quote a couple of times. Turns out, it’s a book!
For Christmas, I got a Garmin VIRB “action camera” (think: Go Pro). I wanted it for biking mostly, but also for running.1 Seeing reviews of the VIRB, I thought having something like this in my hand to easily snap photos with would be really cool, and I could leave my phone securely packed away.
I’ve only really played with it, since it has been cold enough to use as an excuse for actually going running, but that’s a different story. I’ve gotten some decent (on technical merit) pictures out of it, but I really like the pictures I got. I wouldn’t have (and didn’t) pull out my cell phone to take that picture today, nor would I have recorded this video. I think this is really going to help my photo a day project, because “The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You.”
