What does sound look like and how can you photograph it.
A clever photography trick allows you to see the invisible: the rising heat from a lighter, the turbulence around airplane wings, the plume of a sneeze ... and even sound waves.

Here are two sides of a very important topic. These two TED talks, one by Edward Snowden (NSA whistle-blower), the other by NSA deputy director Richard Ledgett, weigh the issues of privacy against security. It is a complex and multifaceted subject with no clearcut solution. My advice is to watch both of these videos and attempt to understand the issues for yourself. Don't rely on media soundbites or oneside presentations. A balance needs to be found that allows for both individual privacy and national security.

Here is the NSA deputy director Richard Ledgett's response to Edward Snowden.

The borders of European countries have changed a lot over 1000 years.

There's some exciting technology on the horizon for LCD screens that could someday make a wider color gamut (like Adobe RGB) the norm.

+Andrea Dinsmore, I most definitely will check out the rest of your videos. I'm not a thru-hiker, but I appreciate what you and your husband do for the folks on the PCT.

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations."

Introduction
So what can I briefly say about myself? Nature fascinates me, and I am passionate about exploring it. I use the tools of science and technology to understand it, my senses to enjoy it, and photography to record it. Oh, and I love maps.
