I'm experimenting with Google's Deep Dream Generator with my images.
Part of it looks like my border collie! See the big version. Also, here's the original image.

I drew the underlying image in Photoshop and ran it through Deep Dream.
What do you see?

I just created an instagram account and I'm going to put all my photos on it. I'm @patricksmithphotography..

I've rewritten my website from the ground up to support phones, tablets etc. I've added over 400 pages of information about landscape photography from my books and blogs. Skip past portfolio and go to Tips and below that.

I've caught abstract art mania, so I'll continue showing my latest creations. In the meantime, I've rewritten my website from the ground up to support phones, tablets etc. I've added over 400 pages of information about landscape photography from my books and blogs.

Excellent article on ways to improve Google plus. Read it!
 
How to fix Google+.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/TFqqXy )

Through much of its existence, Google's social network has often been criticized as a "ghost town" that's "dead" and about to be shut down. The criticisms always come from non-users.

Google+ fans always chime in to rebut those criticisms, often flooding the story or post with disagreement. With all those passionate users, how can it be a ghost town?

The controversy about Google+ engagement never seems to end.

But whatever the current level of activity on Google+ is, it could be vastly higher if Google itself wasn't holding back users by suppressing public posts, removing comments, hiding amazing content and failing to fully use the technology it has already developed.

Here are 10 ways Google could radically crank up the engagement on Google+:

+MMaximuSS1975 Hooray! An excellent comment! I have similar experiences which cause me to believe that the G+ stub is getting a MAJOR overhaul this fall, with major changes. At least I HOPE so, because it can't keep on going this way "as is".

Introduction

I am a database and statistical algorithm programmer working in the field of birth defects research at The University of California, San Francisco. I also write science fiction and am fascinated with the rapid advances in genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. In 30 years or so, computers and the software running them will match our intelligence, then surpass it. What then?

In addition to photography, I create abstract, color field art in Photoshop. See my art website.


I'm writing a science fiction story about a possible end to the human species, but not via the typical dystopian future or calamity. It's actually an uplifting story. The first one of two, 300 page books are on my website. The first one is free! More will follow.


I post photos and science oriented topics. I am interested in many things besides photography! Any branch of science, humanities or the arts is fair game for me. My politics are centrist, so you will not get extremist or concrete thinking here.

For my photography, I scour the landscape and seascape looking for the best views at the right moment.

I learned how to do photography by observation and studying the works of the masters of landscape painting, and so can you! 

I have also written a 325 page PDF eBook that will help you to develop the sort of vision that will put a fine work of your own photography on your wall. Go to my photo website below. I discuss how the greatest painters in history created their masterpieces and how modern photographers can learn time-tested methods for creating fine works of art with their cameras. There are no easy answers to developing vision, but fortunately we can learn from the old masters! I also wrote a book about 40 of by best loved photos, with details about each one.
