If you're a "FB luddite" like myself, you might find +Robert Scoble's 22 Tips for using Facebook quite useful.

It is also highlighting one of the inherent differences between FB and G+, which may not be instantly obvious to newbies.

Personally I don't have a FB account yet, but I'm considering getting one. It has very little to do with the recent buzz around the future of G+, though, I've just become FB-curious lately. Better late than never, eh. :)
I'm merely following the advice I read recently about tipping my toe to a number of different social media platforms and seeing which one works best for me, and then sticking with just a few of the best ones, with a consistent presence in each. So far I've actively avoided FB, perhaps partially for the wrong reasons. Well, that's where Robert's tips come in. It's interesting reading for more ways than one.
 I'm not about to totally abandon G+ any time soon, though. I don't care about the tired old FB vs. G+ bickering at all. It's about practical issues.

Summer Solstice

Well, the longest day of the year just ended to the latest sunset of the year over here. Unfortunately the weather was a bit too clear for a spectacular one,  like the one on Friday evening, which ended with purple rain right after the sunset. So tonight I didn't bother trying any fancy landscape shots, just took a walk along the riverside with my p&s..The next sunset will arrive ever so slightly earlier than this one, and it'll be all downhill from here for the next six months. 

Anyway, this shot of eaten leaves by the river bank right after the sun took a plunge down the river is my contribution (after a long-ish pause) to the #squaresunday   curated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon. Happy Summer Solstice to those on the upper side of the planet, and Winter Solstice to those down under.

Sounds like a good walk, and it's a lovely shot.  Thanks for sharing with #squaresunday  +Erkki Juurus!

Hopefully, winter doesn't come too quickly.

Refueling a Pilot On Ice

This shot from February  is my contribution to the #squaresunday  moderated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon. Oh and yes, the boat did get there by itself only few minutes earlier, plowing through ice from the open sea lane. I'll add another regular crop shot that shows it better.

These are fantastic, +Erkki Juurus!  The regular crop gives me a much better appreciation for the first photo.  Thank you for sharing with #squaresunday !

Hopefully he manages to find the rightful owner of that camera, and kudos for trying. Honk if you happen to recognise these peeps and might be able to help.
 
Found camera. Do you know any of the people in these photos? They are on the memory card of a camera that I found, and I'm still trying to find the owner of the camera. Please help & re-share this post so that I can return the camera. Thanks.

I found the camera a couple of weeks ago along the trail up to Cuyamaca Peak. I contacted the State Park, no response; I contacted two people from the (big) hiking group that went up there to ask around, got nothing so far...

Sunday Brunch

I haven't been active in social media lately, not even in G+.
Hopefully that'll change within the next few weeks or so.
Anyway, here's a couple of snapshots I took a couple of hours or so ago. Yes, it's a pine grosbeak. There were a bunch of them having lunch in a big rowan tree. It was nice to watch and listen to their chirpy chatter while they were munching the berries, not bothered by my walking by.
The shots aren't too sharp, just quick handheld snapshots with my RX10 p&s whilst I was walking by the tree. Anyway, this nice encounter  with an eating bird is my contribution to #squaresunday  curated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon, after a long pause.

Interesting. Looks like HitFilm 3 Express is out now, for free. I think I'm going to give it a try. Based on the demo, looks like it's a usable tool. Anyone using it already? How do you like it?

Commitment
I thought this was a healthy reminder to start a new week wirh.
Pick your thing, get on with it, and commit to it. Get out of your own way and just frigging do it. The rest will follow and take care of itself. Including confidence.

Instant Film TLR

Umm... wait, WOT???
A TLR that shoots instant film? Crazy... I mean how cool is that! ;-)
Probably a must have toy, despite the price. Right, +Frank Doorhof? Have you already ordered one? ;-)

I just finished listening to the recent TWiP episode 404 Port Not Found. I'd say yes, the single port is enough. The new MacBook is a modern portable typewriter.
 I #want one. In gold. :)

Yeah, you'd better take a photo. Just in case the insurance company won't buy your story about how exactly your car got totalled –by an overtaking airliner.

Questions for the show?  - 
 
This is not necessarily a question for the show, but a question for +Frederick Van Johnson and any other member of the TWiP army who happen to own a 5K iMac and do either video or photo editing regularly.

The high-resolution screen is indeed nice, but it's also kinda glossy. Big and glossy. How do you cope with that? Is glaring a real problem? Do you see your face on the screen whenever the ambient light is bright enough?

What I have in mind is that, I'm thinking about buying one but I wouldn't want to invest in a 27-inch mirror to watch my own gob every time I try to work on my photos and videos.
A bit like when reading something in an iPad screen whenever there's a window or another light source nearby. Or just the light off the screen itself. It's a mirror.
So is the 5K iMac a big desktop mirror?

Well, maybe seeing one's own gob constantly on the screen is not a problem for some, but that's a topic for another show, isn't it. ;-)

Too bad the retina MBP has a glossy screen as well. I don't like that. But anyway, feel free to share your opinions and your real-life experiences with big glossy screens.
