Taking over Leica USA’s Instagram

Mon, 15 May 2017 21:11:55 +0000

I have the honor of taking over Leica USA’s Instagram account for two days — today and tomorrow. They are sharing photos made by me on recent trips to Iceland, Japan and the Pacific Northwest. Most of these are made with the y trusted Leica SL and Lecia M-Monochrome M246. As someone who has been trying...

Snap’s Silver Lining

Fri, 12 May 2017 17:58:24 +0000

Snap’s first quarterly earnings has taken a toll on the stock, thanks to Facebook and it’s all out assault on the company. User growth was more modest than expected. The company reported an adjusted EBITDA loss of about $188 million during the quarter, a number you find out if you look past the $2.4 billion...

Shakil Khan, the head of special projects at Spotify and co-founder of is one of the fixtures in Internet circles. And connected as he is — is the guy who got many of my peers to support CharityWater — no one really knows him. These days he is Spotify’s special ambassador and a wellknown...

Dies Slowly

He who does not travel, who does not read, who does not listen to music, who does not find grace in himself, dies slowly. Pablo Neruda, Dies Slowly

On Apple’s Portrait Mode Ads

Thu, 04 May 2017 00:11:35 +0000

Apple’s latest ads for the iPhone 7+ are touting the “Portrait Mode.” As I have written in the past, I love the bokeh-like capabilities of this mode which blurs out the background elements. Sure it isn’t the same as the real lens on a real camera (like my old Leica Summicron 50mm on my Monochrome)...

Coffee, Camera, Conversation…

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:00:43 +0000

Sometimes I get together with fellow camera nerds, drink coffee and we talk about photography, life and Instagram, which by the way has 700 million users! Photos (top) by Chris Michel & (below) by Felix!

Netflix now has 100 million subscribers

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 02:25:58 +0000

In January 2017, it was estimated that if all goes well, then Netflix will pass the 100 million subscriber point sometime in April 2017. Right on time, the company CEO Reed Hastings announced that the streaming video giant had passed the 100 million subscriber milestone. He celebrated by having a steak dinner at Denny’s, just like...

Instagram & Facebook: 5 years later

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 13:41:09 +0000

It has been five years since Facebook got the bargain of the century — Instagram for roughly $750 million. The mobile photo sharing service at that time had mere 35 million monthly active users. It has since added more than 600 million monthly active users. In comparison, Facebook added over 800 million monthly active users....

Back in the flow

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 18:58:20 +0000

“Writer’s Block is just an excuse by people who don’t write for not writing,” quipped (not surprisingly) writer Giando Sigurani — and that is perhaps the best description of my past two months. I have been claiming a severe writers block, but the fact is that I have lost the discipline of writing everyday. It...

Random Notes from a recent trip to Japan 

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 00:43:33 +0000

It isn’t hard to fall in love with Japan. It happens slowly. In 2015, it was a trip to distant Naoshima Islands that hooked me on the Japanese sensibilities. But it was on this most recent trip, the small seductions of Japan — its people, its landscapes, its food and its culture left me completely...
