Thinking About This Little Gadget

I was thinking about this thing that I saw the other day. Actually I was sitting in the break room at the office and this fellow I work with showed me the ad for some gadget that was called a Selfie Stick. It was a thing that was supposed to help you take a selfie a bit better than you could with no help from the gadget. However it was hard for me to not think that people would laugh at you if you took this thing out and held it in front of you to take a picture of your own face. The gadget looks as though it is a foot and a half long, although I do not know that exactly. There was a button on it and that was apparently going to click the camera on the phone by way of a blue tooth connection.

It was difficult for me to figure out exactly what it was going to do, because it seemed to me as though it was the sort of thing that you needed to go to a brick and mortar store and look at in person. Continue reading

Putting My Old Photos on the Web

I started working on a pretty big project, not sure how quickly I shall do it as I am mostly just thinking about fighting boredom. I found a good photo scanner and I am playing around with the free version of this scan speeder photo scanning software. If I can use it easily enough I shall have to buy the full version and if it is too big of a pain, then I shall figure out what else I can do about the job. Of course we are talking about a very large number of photos. I have been taking them pretty much for fifty odd years. I kept all of the negatives and I had my own darkroom in a closet sized room I built down in the basement. Continue reading

The Glass Collage of Our Family

A family can get a great family portrait, from family portrait photographers in nashville. Even though our family had tons of family pictures, we really wanted to do something different for this years family photo. Our son was going to a private school for art, because he was great at art, and we really wanted to help him to develop his skills. He had a project that he had to do and he was very excited about doing it. He had to get together a collage from a picture, and he really wanted to get a picture of the family to do the collage.

We decided that as a family we would find a nice company to get a family picture together. Continue reading

Seeking Professional Wedding Photographer for October Wedding

I need to hire a wedding photographer in the near future, because I am getting married in October, which does not give me much time to spare. I am going to need to find a photograher for my wedding. Because my wife insists that we have an amazing wedding; it really means a lot to her, although, I am a bit more indifferent about the ceremony, to be quite honest. Still, it is one of my tasks in planning the wedding to find a photographer, and I will do the best of my ability to find a wedding photographer that will be able to deliver quality, well timed, photographs of important moments in the wedding, such as the first kiss, and other things along those general lines. While I have found a few candidates, I think that doerman wedding photography is going to be the one we go with.

I was hoping to find a couple of different professional wedding photographers to interview about the job, and see if they would be capable of meeting the standard of excellence that my wife will certainly expect of them. I am going to need to find photographers that have ample experience in taking photographs at wedding, so people with no or limited experience are not eligible for being hired for my wedding. I think that it would only be prudent to review the portfolios of potential photographers, and share some of the better portfolios with my wife, to make sure that I am able to get a photographer that will be certain to do good work. The photographer will be expected to know what sort of photographs to take, and to be able to capture photographs of important close family members that are attending the wedding. I will be happy when all of these arrangements are done, because they are stressing me out a bit, though not nearly as much as they are my wife.

Why HostGator is a Top Web Hosting Company

GUSIH KEMENG: Back To School HairstylesIf you are interested in starting a website for personal or professional use, one of the things that you will need to check off your “to do” list is finding a good web hosting service. This can be fairly difficult; new companies are always stepping onto the scene and it is hard to know which one is best. HostGator is one business that is worth a second look, and there is a coupon available if you decide that you need one.

HostGator is inexpensive but still offers a high quality service. For an individual who doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, their website can be up and running for less than fifty dollars a year. That includes as much disk space as they need and unlimited bandwidth as well. This is almost unheard of among HostGator’s competitors. There are more expensive plans as well, but they also cost much less than other businesses for the same service.

Many people, particularly those who have never had a website before, often shy away from getting started because they feel that the process will just be too complicated. If you select the right web hosting service, however, that doesn’t have to be the case, and HostGator is one that many find to be very simple to use. They make the process of getting your site together nearly painless, which also means that it will be easier for you to tweak and adjust your website as necessary.

Finally, HostGator has a strong customer service team. They know what they are doing, and they truly value each and every customer. When a problem arises or you need help with your site, they are there for you every step of the way. Some hosting companies are only available at the beginning when you are signing up and then drop out of site when you need them; HostGator is different.

Introspection on the Subject of Buddhist Philosophy

 ... Blum, “Mahayana Buddhism” from Kevin Trainor, ed. Buddhism: TheBuddhism is a very interesting religion, and it offers a beautiful view of existence, yet one that is none the less difficult to live by. At its essence, Buddhism explains that the root of human suffering is attachment in its various forms. The idea is that the attachment itself is a folly, because there is nothing there to actually hold onto, the entire world is in flux, and it always will be. There is a lot to ponder when embracing this concept, and it has particularly interesting implications for the human concept of the self. It suggests that the notion of personal identity is a fallacy, and that there is nothing permanent about our existence either. It is taught that Lord Buddha was the only person ever to really attain the goal of Buddhism, to be truly free of attachment, and that is how he was able to transcend and reach enlightenment.

Which Camera Should I Buy?

Blankmap Europe2 Coloured - Europe mapsI am going to take the family to Europe on a three week vacation this year. My wife have wanted to do it for as long as we have been together and it does not seem as though Michelle will fathom being left with her grandparents while we do it. It was certainly our plan to leave her there if she was willing to do it, but that is not happening. Right now we plan upon visiting London, Paris, Antwerp and perhaps Rome. Honestly I have some business to attend to in Antwerp, it was a very convenient business trip that will allow us to extend the vacation by mitigating much of the cost.

I am going to need a new camera and a better one that I have ever had. The complexity of these higher end devices does not appeal to me, but I desire the same results you would get without needing a three month training course in advanced photographic technology. Continue reading
