I've been playing around a bit lately with shooting my dslr through an old Ansco Panda. I really enjoy the morning light in my place and sometimes it makes my breakfast look beautiful to me. Here is a shot I recently made of the Carmel Cheerios I was having for breakfast.

Enjoyed watching this mashup of over 70 singers covering "Adele's Rolling in The Deep"

If I had a nickel for every person who has covered Adele's "Rolling In The Deep," I'd pretty pretty darn rich. This is an incredible 71-Person Mash-Up \m/

When can customer service be cute and fun? Here's an instance.

I have just seen this on another social site, if only others would sit up and take note of people like Chris King who replied, I love the fact he even put his age down too, well done Sainsbury's, this should make anyone smile ;)

Went out early this morning to try to capture the Aurora Borealis from my backyard. I'm not sure if that is it back-lighting the hill in the distance or not. It was cold, and the northern lights didn't really show themselves in my area. With that said I kinda enjoyed taking this image in the dark and quiet of the early morning. Maybe I'll do some more night/long exposure stuff in the future.

Here +Terrence Lui summarizes some of the changes Google just rolled out. Seems to me that Google and Google+ has a great potential for continuing its growth, catching on and catching up with networks like Facebook. Search integration may seem invasive to some but I think in the end it can and will prove useful and time saving (or easily/amusingly distracting...that's okay too) to many.

Search+ is coming

Yeah. Remember all those times I said how important it was for people to get on board Google+ because pretty soon they were going to get very prominent placement in search results?

http://bit.ly/nSvMbN
http://bit.ly/zt0alK
http://bit.ly/x78jvO

Well we are pretty much there. Check out the story on the Google blog page

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/01/search-plus-your-world.html

Starting soon, they will roll out 3 new features

1 . Personal Results, which enable you to find information just for you, such as Google+ photos and posts—both your own and those shared specifically with you, that only you will be able to see on your results page;

2. Profiles in Search, both in autocomplete and results, which enable you to immediately find people you’re close to or might be interested in following; and,

3. People and Pages, which help you find people profiles and Google+ pages related to a specific topic or area of interest, and enable you to follow them with just a few clicks. Because behind most every query is a community.

Make no mistake about it this is a game changer folks. Many people have no idea how valuable the real estate at the top of the Google Search results are. Whole industries have formed around getting high placement there. Now, Google+ is going to start having a major influence in those results. How long can it possibly be before all that money and energy put into SEO starts looking at Google+? Not very long at all.

What do you think of these new features? Do you like them or do you have any concerns about the deep integration that is coming with Google+?

This is a must read for people who think photographers are too expensive. It's also a fun read for any photographer whose experienced having their photography service prices called "Wack" or similar offensive terms.
Earlier today my friend and fellow photographer posted a link to a craigslist ad from a woman in Seattle looking for a wedding photographer. The woman was upset because she thought that $3,000 for a w...

I can't really believe that this is a legit Craigslist ad but I like the photographers response in this post nonetheless.
