Join us for live critiques soon at https://www.facebook.com/thearcanum/posts/957126290998496 !

Who would not want this amazing guy as their Master?  Here's the amazing +Ibarionex Perello talking about why he does what he does... and you get some amazing insight as to what it would be like if he was your Master. And yes, I also have TREMENDOUS difficulty saying his name. It can only be pronounced by him and a dolphin pod, singing in sweet unison.

What's up with Google, Google Photos, and Google+ ? Here's a great article about the evolution with +Bradley Horowitz by +Steven Levy !

+Trey Ratcliff The article is great, but unfortunately I think this is a major step backwards in functionality. No auto-enhance on upload, less metadata than before (date taken now not editable), no face tagging at all outside US. Imagine you had tagged family photos such that kids would know who people were when hovering on faces in years to come: all that investment appears down the drain...  Now we just need +SmugMug to spot the business opportunity and encourage customers back...

A Google approach to Photos

At my daughter's preschool graduation not too long ago, my wife and I naturally wanted to capture the moment. So together we took a little over 550 photos and videos! And then promptly ran out of time to do anything with the photos we took. I think we can all sympathize with this; expecting all those photos and videos to make reliving the moments that matter easier, only to find out that the sheer volume has made it harder. 

And that’s why I’m thrilled to introduce the new Google Photos. A home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so that you can share and save what matters.

Check out my blog post about how we’ve made it easier to relive a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos through the new Google Photos. http://goo.gl/TbBuZX

+Trey Ratcliff​ How can you commend the Photos team on shipping a product which has some critical features stripped down or missing? The editing features are so limited now, and you can neither see nor add captions to your photos. Half the charm of seeing your photos was to read the captions, and now I can't do it at all on the mobile. Ridiculous.

See the couple embracing there on the right?  They are hugging just after completing this amazing wooden art piece at Burning Man last year.  About four days later, they burned the whole thing down...

What a stunning shot, Trey! So lifelike that it literally pops off the screen. Nice inclusion of the hugging couple to the right. It's such a shame that this statue lasted only four days.

It's a cool looking shot, but is it really worth putting all that garbage in the atmosphere?

A girl holds her little sister on the back of a motorcycle on a small island called Phu Quoc in Vietnam. You can see this kind of stuff 1,000 times a day in Asia...  it's not uncommon to see mothers breastfeeding their babies while on a motorcycle.

About Me
I love photography and staying up late at night in the dark, post-processing my photos! It's all quite artistic, I suppose. I take it Very seriously; I also take it not seriously at all.

Every day, I share my travel photography on StuckInCustoms.com where I tell a little story and sometimes help people find out more about themselves through the creation of art.  The site also has camera reviews, travel guides, and a growing and fun community.  Join us!

If you want to learn more about HDR photography and fun post-processing, visit my free HDR Tutorial -- Have fun!

Want to know even more?  I get all kinds of questions, so I built an ever-growing About Me page.

Bragging rights
I was detailed in a holding facility by the Chinese military and was able to talk my way out of it, and I escaped with both my wits and my memory cards intact.
