A snowflake of summer – a short one on magnification

There it is finally. The awakening of my lust for photography after a longer break. And the journey will start again, where it once started: In the macro dominion.

Screenshots

Screenshots

Sitting in a cafe and laughing on the latest flaw in Google maps where a renamed street was not tagged with its real name but with the German words for “has been renamed” (Umbenannt worden).

We wanted to post it.
Sounds easy. Have you ever tried to take a screenshot of your mobile? On an Iphone it is no problem: Simply hold and release the power button and the button with the square at the same time. Sounds akward (and actually is akward) but at least you can do it and you have visual (flashing screen) and audio feedback (click).
A Google search showed: Android needs rooted apps and there seems to be a new one, but no built in solution. I hope this changes with the release of 4.0

If you have information for screenshots with other mobile platforms please leave them for others in the comments. Thank you.

Red cube and rubrication

The Red Blip

A quick wallpaper I did for a friend.

BTW: Have you ever heard of rubrication? When books were handwritten there have been scribes to fill in the parts to be emphasized. These parts were traditionally in red.

When you do your next charts in Excel please take them as a role model. Use one color as a highlight and do not create a circus. Thank you.

Do you want to read more on charts?
