Camera+ and have to say that it's phenomenal. I does things that I didn't think I'd be able to do, like bring out the buildings in this shot, with a cell phone camera.
It certainly makes shooting with a cell phone a lot more fun and versatile.
Just another reason that more and more people will be leaving their DSLR's at home.

We need to have faith, be strong, and keep learning the lessons of life. That's what it's all about.

I'm still working on a plan on getting my desktop computer back up and running... I just need to make some time available to do that. In the meantime, I've been trying to maintain a certain level of productivity within the confines of limited capacity.
You can only do so much without the right software.

All is not lost. The data still seems to be on the old hard drive, and I've got a back up of the programs, and external hard drives with my images on them. And yet, until I get the computer back up and running, my routine has been completely turned around.
It's like having your hands tided.

If you think about it, you're living on borrowed time. You've got more years behind you than ahead of you, and putting off making important decisions is putting an unfair burden on your family and loved ones.
You need to put a plan together in the event something happens to you. This should include having a will, specifying how your remains are to be dealt with, and having a DNR form completed. This is the minimum of what you should have in order.
Another thing I suggest is taking a look around at your surroundings. Get rid of things you don't use, donate them. Do your really want to leave behind a mess for someone else to clean up?
Simplify your life. Spend more time doing things you love, and less time accumulating material objects. You'll be happier.
You're running out of time... use what you have left wisely.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that this is the future.
Well, because the cameras in the phones are getting better and better. The processors are getting incredibly fast, and the software can do many things that I used to have to do in Photoshop.
Not having to carry around a bunch of heavy gear is a real plus, as is being able to shoot HD video. But the real coup de grâce will be the fact that images can be processed and posted to the internet within minutes.
No more emptying cards, processing, and then posting. How do you compete with that?

Just look around you. You'd be surprised at all your surrounding environment has to say. Capturing the essence of those stories is where photography can take you on a road of discovery.

Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now... Bob Dylan
I've been thinking a lot about the line about being deceived into thinking we've got something to protect.... other than our freedom (which we seem content on giving away in the name of security)... what are we trying to protect?
I bring this up specifically in terms of talent, creativity, and photography. Locking away your images because you think someone will steal them is silly, and foolish.
Gifts were meant to be shared, if they aren't shared then they're squandered. That's why they are called gifts.
So often I get exposed to people arguing about putting images on the internet, and how it's not a good thing, as they'll be stolen. How?
Sure people might download, use, and enjoy the images... even misappropriate them. So!
They didn't create them... and that group is so small compared to all who may find pleasure, or even be moved by an image.... not sharing images is lessening the online community, and punishing the many in order to spite the few.
Share! Make the world a better place!
