Again, iPhone is the default camera

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 18:09:26 +0000

Chase Jarvis, a photographer and Internet personality once commented that the best camera is the one that is on you. He is right. When I was in Iceland recently, I spent way more time taking photos with my new iPhone 7 Plus camera, learning to put the new telephoto lens and portrait mode to good...



Facebook’s Affordable Housing Efforts: Not Enough

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:09:27 +0000

First of all, kudos to Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg and team for recognizing the issues around affordable housing in the area of the technology boom. For more context, here is a statement that Mark published on his Facebook page. Affordable housing is an important problem across the world. Our goal is to connect people everywhere, and that starts with...



Silicon Valley has an empathy vacuum

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 15:22:26 +0000

The Washington Post shared research from the Brookings Institution, which highlights the economic disparity in the folks who voted for President Trump and former Secretary of State Mrs. Clinton. According to the Brookings analysis, the less-than-500 counties that Clinton won nationwide combined to generate 64 percent of America’s economic activity in 2015. The more-than-2,600 counties...



Facebook, Fake News & Zuckerberg’s Response

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 17:32:17 +0000

Mark Zuckerberg, after a heated debate (which even had US President Obama weighing in) on the issue of fake news and its role in modern politics and the future of democracy in our networked society, has broken his silence. In a message posted on Facebook, he listed a variety of measures Facebook is taking in...



My 2c on the iPad vs Mac debate

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:53:08 +0000

Two of my favorite writers, John Gruber and Ben Brooks are weighing in on the Mac vs iPad debate. It is a highly debated topic, especially in light of the slower release of Mac computers, relatively feeble upgrades of the new machines and the growing oomph of the iPad, especially the iPad Pros. Gruber writes,...



Roads of Iceland: A Photo Collection

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 04:28:25 +0000

“Goin’ places that I’ve never been Seein’ things that I may never see again And I can’t wait to get on the road again On the road again!”  — Willie Nelson, On The Road Again!  As someone who doesn’t drive, I love driving across vast open landscapes, through mountain passes, quiet valleys, along the sea, watching...



Meeting Ragnar Axelsson 

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:48:27 +0000

Last evening, I had the pleasure of meeting Ragnar ‘Rax’ Axelsson who is a photography inspiration of mine. His work chronicles the trials and tribulations of original people of Greenland. He has dedicated his art to covering climate change and its impact on the Arctic and the Tundras. His books, the Faces of the North...



In Praise of iPhone7plus 

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 19:52:50 +0000

It has been an interesting trip so far, from a photography standpoint. Of all the cameras, I have used:  Leica Monochrome to focus on subjects and simpler photos. Fuji xPro2 for late evening and early morning long exposures. It is mostly because the Leica can’t handle more than 60 seconds exposure. The new Seven5 Lee...



Few fun reads for this weekend

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 15:39:53 +0000

It is cold, rainy and grey here. Perfect day for me to totally binge on The Fall Season 3. I mean who can resist that show! Unfortunately, I need to plan, pack and do some last minute shopping for a trip. We all live in stress inducing, mind-numbing, politically charged times and need some relief from the mundane. So, instead of sending...



Not news, just stuff worth reading! 

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 02:19:09 +0000

In case you were wondering, for the third time in the past five months, I’ve gotten hit by the cold/flu combo. I decided to take time off from the Internet, work and spent a substantial amount of time over the past three days recuperating by doing absolutely nothing (except answering emails) and drinking lot of...
