BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO
CONSOLIDATE YOUR DRIVES SO BACKUP IS EASIER
Just had the SSD that has my lightroom catalog  from 1999-2012 fail and the backup failed a few weeks ago. REMEMBER TO BACK UP TO 2 DIFFERENT HARD DRIVES. Luckily I have an older backup so I only lost any metadata/organization I did in this past year. 
In trying to recover I found Amazon is shipping 8TB hard drives now for $299. I plan to consolidate 2x 4tb drives in 8tb drives so that only have to carry around 5 drives as my backup :)

I use a Synology NAS with 5x2TB RAID for my Time Machine local backups. One drive is a hot spare. I use CrashPlan as my second tier off site backup. Both systems are running in the background so all I have to do is to run my Lightroom backup on a regular basis.

Sometime this year I will be upgrading to at least 4TB drives. I like to stay a little behind the cutting edge.

PORTLAND -- NORTHERN LIGHTS -- FIRST THURSDAY
If you're in Portland, come down and say hi and see the new northern lights show in the gallery. I'll be playing real time footage shot at ISO 51200 on the video wall (most videos you see online are time lapsed)

or check out a couple of Bryn's non aurora pieces at the Augen Gallery (817 SW 2nd Ave) which is having an opening featuring Portland Open Studios members.

Did you know I have a blog? I do! I'm not the most regular but I don't think I've ever mentioned it here. This post I wrote about how my eyes affect my artistic preferences

Somehow this slipped past me, but 6TB drives are now shipping (still in the ridiculously priced phase and wprobably will be until seagate comes out with their competitor in Q2 of this year)

The CMS detector aka "compact" muon solenoid (3 stories tall and 300 feet underground) at the large hadron collider.  The protons are travelling at 99.99% of the speed of light when they collide in the middle of this "camera"

Remember, Portland Open Studios is this weekend and next. I'll be demonstrating how I built my 5000 lego man mosaic and talking about my photographic process. Buy the iphone/android app to get the list of locations and go see pottery, welding, painting, etc in action! You can also buy a map or calendar in my gallery that will act as your ticket/guide.

Portland Open Studios AND frame sale this weekend
Yes, that is a rose made of 10000 LIPSTICK TUBES. 
This crazy artist was jury selected to be part of Portland Open Studios http://portlandopenstudios.com/ this weekend and next. I'll be in the gallery from 10am-5pm saturday and sunday demonstrating the process I go through for building a mosaic like the lego golden gate bridge or the forthcoming lipstick rose.
I also have a bunch of brand new never used frames for sale 24x36 down to 5x7 for super cheap (starting at $1)

Thanks for commenting +Simon Jeffery ! I like to use things that would otherwise end up in the landfill to make images. I'm finding to the people who come in to my gallery, mosaics are different from photography because the physical objects make it much more tangible, and it's a unique "original" piece rather than a reproduction. Of course as a photographer I struggle with the lack of detail and the lack of subtle tonal and color gradations!

Nice beach life series, +Bryn Forbes. Thank you for sharing with +Coastal Thursday!

Share your thoughts, feelings, or 1+'s with the artist below, and if you enjoy the work consider adding this photographer to your own circles. For a little coastal magic in your stream each week, why not add +Coastal Thursday while you're at it?

I posted a real time video of the northern lights above iceland, since it's so hard to tell how fast they move because most videos are timelapse. 
I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights. Before Iceland I had only seen a slight glow in the sky of Alaska. There are lots of timelapse videos on the internet but it's hard to get a sense of ...
