Another photo from my recent trip to Princeton, NJ. I loved this view. There was something so incredibly peaceful and wonderful about it.

There is a wonderful view that looks back up through Blair Arch to the large stained glass window in Richardson Auditorium at Alexander Hall. There are many lines of symmetry around the campus.

My brother and I went to Princeton, NJ last weekend to see where some of our ancestors had lived, and to delve into our family's history a bit more. We also decided to walk around the Princeton University campus a bit after lunch to see what was on campus. It's a beautiful campus. And it was a gorgeous day.

Lens Blur in the new Google Camera app
Posted by Carlos Hernández, Software Engineer

One of the biggest advantages of SLR cameras ( over camera phones is the ability to achieve shallow depth of field effects (also known as bokeh,, which makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. 

Achieving this optical effect has traditionally required a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your mobile phone or tablet. That all changes with Lens Blur, a new mode in the Google Camera app ( 

Lens Blur replaces the need for a large optical system with computer vision algorithms and optimization techniques that are run entirely on the mobile device, simulating a larger lens and aperture in order to creating a 3D model of the world. 

To learn more about the algorithms and optimization that makes Lens Blur possible, head over to the Google Research Blog, linked below. We hope you have fun with your bokeh experiments!

The Arches

Another image of the arches, this time without my brother in the photo. 

I think we could have stood there for hours taking photos. The light was sublime, and the shadows were fantastic.
