If you ever wondered what it's like to be a game developer, check out my first article in the new series "A Dev's Life".  Here I talk about what went into the design and implementation of our new One Tap, a revolutionary upgrade to classic computer solitaire.
One Tap. August 1, 2015. A Dev's Life – Developing Features. What do you want from your apps? You want to do more with less work. And that's the convenience we wanted to bring to the table with our new One Tap user interface. What is it? How many ways can you interact with solitaire on a touch ...

The flowers are gorgeous +dPHender son​! There is a ball of flowers, like a pompom about the size of a large coin, atop a long stalk. They would be beautiful and tasty as a garnish. I've always wanted one. This lone flower was a gift from a friend.

Help me pick the best one for my web gallery.  +1 your fav pls! 

These are extreme macro photos of a cell phone with a shattered screen.  I love doing these things abstracts with color and light.  The multi-color images were lit with a tri-color LED set to white, which means the blue, red and green LEDs were all on.  Because the bulb was very close to the screen, you can see it broken into the individual colors.

The high-res version of last week's winning image is up at:  http://lauraockel.com/galleries/wallpaper/

It was a great surprise +anthony price, and I was overjoyed to have the chance to take few shots.  The way they move is so graceful!

Introduction
I love photography.  My specialties are macros and nightscapes.

When I'm not taking pictures or hanging on G+, I'm hard at work doing game design for Tesseract Mobile.  I co-founded Tesseract Mobile in 2009 with my fiancee Joshua Frank.  We specialize in card games which have been enjoyed by millions of people all around the world.  How cool is that?! 

Big thanks to all the awesome people who have downloaded our games!

I am inspired by the technological pioneers of Silicon Valley and I am proud to work in the tech industry.  More than that, I'm grateful for the opportunity to earn my living with art and creativity.  My dad said that wasn't possible ;)

Here on Google+ I enjoy sharing my photography and graphic designs, but most of all I love being inspired by the creativity of my fellow Google+ members. 

Bragging rights
Tesseract Mobile's games have been downloaded over 3 million times. I designed them!
