Master Your Relationship to Time

By Leo Babauta The truth is, most of us have a pretty adversarial relationship to time. There’s never enough. We’re always behind. It goes by too fast. We can’t do important things because we don’t have enough time. None of it is helpful. Most of it is bullshit. Let’s take the first one: there’s never enough time. This is powerful because there’s some truth to it: time is limited and precious. We will die, and while we don’t know how much time we have left in this life, we do know t...

This is the first video ever recorded under the ice of the “Doomsday Glacier”

Thwaites Glacier is a huge glacier in Antarctica, often referred to as “Doomsday Glacier.” Why “doomsday?” Well, if it melts away, researchers say that it could raise the sea levels more than 10 feet. This is why it’s important for scientists to understand the behavior of his glacier – and a recent video from Icefin […] The post This is the first video ever recorded under the ice of the “Doomsday Glacier” appeared first on DIY Photography.

Boundaries: the Good Friend of Every Parent

During my son’s senior year of high school, he and a few of his friends had a rather telling conversation with their choir teacher, one my son later relayed to me. In the course of their chat after class, someone asked this teacher – who is young, smart, and beloved by students and parents alike – what she thought was the biggest problem she sees in teens these days. According to my kiddo, she didn’t sit on the question too long. “From my vantage point,” she said, “It seems many parents want to ...

Are your social media photos ending up in a law enforcement database?

Facial recognition is an incredibly useful consumer tool for organizing our burgeoning photo albums. Companies like Google and Apple have slowly integrated machine learning algorithms into their consumer photo products, which allow you to search by keywords without the need for manual tagging, or to simply click on a face to see more photos of […] The post Are your social media photos ending up in a law enforcement database? appeared first on DIY Photography.

“The Bachelor” tried Photoshop for “extending” bikinis. That did not go well

We’ve seen plenty of hilarious and downright incredible Photoshop fails. One thing they never fail to do, though, is making us laugh. A few days ago, an episode of “The Bachelor” came under the spotlight for its terrible Photoshop job.

Do You Dare to Believe?

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 (NIV) My dad’s ashes hit the surface of the water and swirled into an eddy in a tiny inlet before being swept downriver. The rising sun enflamed the red rock face opposite us and a lone ...

Ever wondered how Instagrammers get those amazing shots? Turns out they’ll go great lengths to get them

Some photographers will go great lengths to get the perfect shot. But it seems that Instagram influencers and “influencers” will go even further.

You Have Not Been Forgotten or Overlooked

I’ll admit, the month of February brings with it a sense of dread. I don’t mind the flowers, chocolates, or the emphasis on love. No, as a single woman, it’s the looks of pity, as questions and doubts that have played in my head are suddenly spoken aloud by loved ones and strangers alike. If we had the time, I could tell you one hundred different stories of hope realized and hope deferred, of singleness and waiting, of watching dreams die and finding God satisfies. But I won’t lie to you: on the...

God Knows Our Purpose

I am a list maker. I am a planner. I am happy with a pen in my hand and paper — any kind of paper — to make a list on. Things to get done, things for the grocery list, appointments coming up, bills to pay, people to email — there is just so much to remember. Without my handy lists, I know I would be dropping the ball and forgetting all sorts of things. Also, who doesn’t just love being able to cross something off a list and have that wonderful feeling of accomplishment? So my inner planner and l...

We Have the Spirit of God in Us

On the contrary, we speak God’s hidden wisdom in a mystery, a wisdom God predestined before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age knew this wisdom, because if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human heart has conceived— God has prepared these things for those who love him. Now God has revealed these things to us by the Spirit, since the Spirit searches everything, even the dept...

Why Flickr is a diamond in the rough, and how to make it awesome again

Don’t cross the line between saving memories for yourself and ruining them for others

Some people like capturing candid moments hoping to take some artistic and meaningful shots. Others want to preserve precious memories, so they grab their camera or phone during the very creation of those memories.

Stuck? Or Slow and Steady Growth?

With all of life’s ups and downs, have you ever felt stuck? I’m not talking about a little stuck, I’m talking about feeling like you’re trapped in quicksand stuck. Stuck is pretty much how I spent my whole 2019. Life wasn’t horrible, but it sure wasn’t great. I’m not even sure how to accurately describe the feeling of stagnation in my mind, body and spirit. I honestly couldn’t pinpoint an area in my life where I felt progress. I wasn’t where I thought I’d be in any area of life. I was in a job ...
