A scene that’s easy picking, these days. Friends, or coworkers, eating lunch together, not interacting with each other at all. Interesting times. As I ate lunch, enjoying the breeze, the sound of the water fountain, and the sun, I noticed these 3 ladies who had come to the table together to, allegedly, eat lunch together. During the 1/2 hour or so that they were there, it was nearly completely silent. They said a few words, then back to their phones.

The other day when I opened up Lightroom 5.7, I got a notification that there was an update available; however, this wasn’t the normal notification where I could click to download the latest version. Instead, it was a link to where I was offered the choice of buying the new version outright, for about $145, or subscribing for $9.95 / month and getting both Lightroom and Photoshop. I see that they’ve added HDR as well as well as the ability…

At times I’ve heard parents tell their children not to dawdle, or waste time. Sometimes, I absolutely feel the need to dawdle, or stop and smell the roses.

At work, we’ve been involved in a death march, basically, working a lot of hours, including weekends, trying to reach a deadline that is really impossible to meet – simply put, not enough time. So, Wednesday, I went in a bit late…

Yesterday, I decided to catch the train a little bit later, to delay by about 30 minutes. Catching a later train means fewer people on the train, a bit more elbow room. I decided to play a bit on the way with the Hipstamatic application on my phone. I started taking pictures right way, almost as soon as I sat down. Then, I noticed that by the reflection in the window, I could see the guy in front of me…

Back in the day, I used to work at a One Hour Photo. Good fun! It always seemed to be exciting our customers to be able to get their photos back in an hour. Now, with instant gratification at an all time high, especially with digital photography, waiting an hour seems like an eternity! No more customers standing at the window, waiting excitedly for their prints to come out of the chute and land into one of the viewing trays…

I almost had an Office Space moment the other day. If any of you have seen the movie, Office Space, you’ll probably recollect the scene when the employees get to take out their revenge on the printer that had been giving them so much trouble in the office. Beware: The link is the uncut version. NSFW (Not Suitable For Work) I wanted to go all Office Space on my printer the other day. I wanted to print a few of…
