Infographic Photography Tutorial

I understand most of the settings on manual mode of my camera now, but that came with a lot of experimenting. The experimenting is of course necessary but I feel these cheat sheets can speed up the learning process. These give more insight into each setting, and the pictographic representation of different settings is very helpful, especially if for ones who are just starting their photographic journey 🙂

The frosty globe is fleeting.

I might not be able to give myself a reason to love temperatures so low, but after reading this piece, I definitely have a good reason not to hate them. Thanks for the sharing some of the positive impacts of the whole “polar vortex” phenomena 🙂

Confined light, liberated words

Happy Thursday everyone,

I had considered spending some time in this post to address the few yet loud-mouthed remarks about how the current extreme southward flow of the jet stream, called a “polar vortex” by many, is direct proof of climate change being false, made-up and a general waste of time and money.

Those of you reading this are smart enough to go beyond such desperate statements, right? I won’t give climate deniers the luxury of having me address their ignorance and arrogance – they will take any short-term event or unrelated situation to further their largely blank and scattered agenda. They will continue as they were regardless of widespread and virtually unanimous agreement on long-term and accelerating climate change. While they wait for chemical warfare or perhaps geo-engineering to further their economic and one-sided (and one-species) interests, the rest of us continue to work hard finding local and scalable…

Broken shells can mend broken hearts :)

Whenever I get a chance to go to a beach, I collect shells. Like most of us, I try to find shells that are not chipped, in perfect shape but always end up with a few broken pieces here and there. My recent visit to the beach was no different. Last night, I spread out all the shells and looked at them, there they were the perfect ones those that the world wants (I call them the achievers), then there were few semi broken but rare ones with beautiful patterns on them, those that would not go unnoticed (I call them the prodigies) , and then there were these that had nothing extraordinary about them (the commoners), but when I put them together look what I made.

Broken shells can mend broken hearts :)

I guess when broken souls come together, probably they can mend a broken life, when commoners come together they can mend a broken society, just like broken shells mend a broken heart. 

And the next time you head to the beach, don’t discard the broken shells, you can work wonders with them.
