Absolutely beautiful photos of dragonflies.
Love this photo series that shows how staged social media photos often are.
I love the idea behind this “camera”:
Conceived by German designer Philipp Schmitt, the “camera” is made from a 3D-printed shell that encloses a smartphone. An app uses GPS to track your location and calculate how many online photos have been geotagged within a 115-foot radius. If too many photos have already been taken there, Camera Restricta refuses to function. It only allows you to start photographing again once you’ve moved to a less-documented area.
I’ve noticed this a lot in the past few years with Disney parks photography… I’m just as guilty as anybody of thinking there is creativity in every good photo.
From The Guardian article:
Photography can easily degenerate into a pseudo-art, with millions of people all taking pictures of the same things and all thinking we are special.
I have finally going through my photos from our trip to Hilton Head Island last fall. I didn’t take very many photos, but here are a few that I thought worth sharing!
Almost a year and a half ago, we went on a trip to Hawaii with my parents. It was both my daughter’s first visit to Hawaii, as well as my parents’. We spent a week on Maui, two days on the Island of Hawaii (the Big Island), and one week on O’ahu (at Aulani). Hawaii is such a fantastic place – I look at these photos and can’t believe they are real. But, it really does look just like that! Hopefully we will be fortunate to return there someday for another vacation.
