DP Review: Apple to cease development of Aperture.

No doubt you’ve heard. But fear not for Final Cut Pro, et al.

I did a passel o’ thinkin’ before choosing Lightroom over Aperture. Apple fans gave me a hard time; vindicated. I remember my Quadra 840AV purchase all too well (great hardware, only to be abandoned). The unmentioned behemoth: Photoshop. Apple would not be able to command this niche without a Photoshop equivalent, and the investment would be huge (and likely unwise). This was the Quark mistake, too.  Either create a competitive product, or work smoothly with the pachyderm in the room. I use the best of LR and PS, switching between programs with aplomb. Can’t beat that workflow. Post-processing is where most budgets are either made, or broken to myriad expensive shards.

Messy Nessy Chic: Before they Disappear - Suburbs of Australia.

Some great photos here, very reminiscent of ‘American West’/Route 66 photo projects.

Going stir-crazy. Next week I get the verdict on my eye’s progress. Hopefully I’ll be allowed to ‘bump’ around NM again ...

Macworld: TriggerTrap Mobile review - Control your camera’s shutter with your iOS device.

I use it. It is nice,  but it is not a professional tool.  I experimented with some sunset timelapses; I’m not sure if it was the camera’s fault, or the iPhone, but Triggertrap would ‘drop’ a frame every so often (set to take a photo every minute, then every x number of minutes it would not fire. When that happened, the timer would get out of sync by a certain amount of seconds, but then assume the same minute intervals again). My exposures were so close together, you couldn’t see the occasional jump. Here.  Oh, and it chews up battery power, too. Bottom line is, if I were doing this for pay or posterity, I’d purchase a dedicated device. But for the hobbyist, it’s just great.

Sploid: Spectacular photos of the US Navy’s most powerful battleship ever.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Propaganda in time for Iraq/ISIS? My old man told stories of watching the battleships shell Tarawa until the trees were rags and the vegetation shredded. They pounded Tarawa for hours … and the opposition *still* poured out of bunkers and pillboxes to massacre the first waves of Marines attempting a landing on the atoll. Lessons there, for those who value learning from history ... sheer power is rarely enough by itself.

National Park Service Press Releases: Drones prohibited.

Totally expected. “In April, visitors at Grand Canyon National Park gathered for a quiet sunset, which was interrupted by a loud unmanned aircraft flying back and forth and eventually crashing in the canyon.” Sounds like you can get a ‘special use’ permit, however.

Would’ve gotten closer, but the grass was alive with young rattlers, fresh out of their hidey-hole. Not my cup of tea. Shortly after these shots, these beauties beat a hasty retreat.

A mining concern wishes to strip-mine and gravelize La Bajada Mesa. We oppose such actions. Two color shots, some might like these even better, one and two.
