At the Sunrise Café...

... you can talk about whatever you want.This is the western view at 7:54, on a day when the "actual" sunrise time was 7:27. The view looking east was solid cloud — a type #1 sunrise. There were some breaks in the clouds to the west, so I turned the camera that way. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

New Year's Card from Peter

Havana, 2020 "The gift of seeing, feeling, and the joy of response! "We live in a world full of immense challenges—often personal and maybe more often, generalized challenges to the spirit presented by the major forces at play all around us—politics, economics, ideology, attitudes, and environmental realities. In the midst of all of this—among the daily blessings and joys that offer so much amazing life in the present moment—is the opportunity to go out, and use one's eyes, heart, movement, a...

Best local group tours in Barcelona

It’s easy to fall in love with Barcelona’s beaches, parks, shopping, and fine gastronomy. Add in the happening cultural scene, charming nearby villages, and architecture, and it’s no surprise that more than 30 million tourists visit every year, which is 18 times the total population. Imagining a crowd of that size is difficult, and trying to find a free spot on La Barceloneta, Barcelona’s main beach, during the high season is even harder. While mass tourism is a real challenge in the city, i...

Platypod: Knocking it Out of the Park with Platyball

By Shiv Verma Sponsored Just recently, I had the opportunity to test drive a new ball head, the Platyball.

In modern life, privacy is no longer a given — people are being tracked on their daily commute, at work, online, and when they're shopping. That's because data is valuable. In 2018, American companies spent an estimated $19 billion attaining and interpreting consumer data. Data is a commodity to be sold for advertising, used by government agencies to stop crimes, or for companies to increase workplace productivity. Almost nothing is private anymore.

Breakdown of the Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens shows internal design like nothing before

Seeing lenses taken apart and dismantled for the first time, or anything mechanically or electronically complex just fascinates me.

Instagram’s decision to hide photoshopped images is a disservice to art

In a controversial turn of events, Instagram has begun hiding photoshopped images on its platform — even in the case of creative uses. San Francisco-based photographer Toby Harriman was scrolling through his Instagram feed when he suddenly spotted a post flagged for “False Information,” PetaPixel writes. It was a first for him, so he clicked through the warning pop-up, only to find it was simply of photo of a man standing on a rainbow-colored hill. “Independent fact-checkers say this is false,” ...

3 Pinterest influencers break down how much money they make for sponsored pins — and how that compares to Instagram

Pinterest is usually not the first place that brands go to run sponsored content, but its top influencers have found ways to monetize their audiences on and off the platform.

What Greta Thunberg can teach brands about decoding Gen Z

It’s been a busy start to 2020 for climate activist Greta Thunberg. Fresh from turning 17, she staged a school strike where it all began at home in Sweden then slammed Australian politicians for inaction as bushfires raged across the country – all within the new decade’s first three working days. ‘The Power of Youth’ was the front page coverline used by Time magazine when it confirmed Thunberg as its Person of the Year for 2019 just last month – a phrase that belies the yawning gap that exists b...
