Is the sentimental value of photo albums forever lost?

Is the sentimental value of photo albums forever lost?

Photo sharing nowadays is mostly done over the internet. Almost every photograph we take ends up on some of the social media. So, instead of intimate sharing dear photographs with close friends while sitting at the table, drinking a cup of coffee or tea, and commenting all those lovely moments captured in one memory, today we share captured happy moments with hundreds of people, and most of them we do not know well.

Book of remembering

Although we seem to forget, when we hold a photo album, there is some special feeling of nostalgia, intimacy, it is all about the memories and you know that that special “book of remembering” is meant to be kept forever.

On the other hand, when we look at the pictures on internet, we are more concerned about how other people are going to react on the appearance of the photograph, how many likes they’ll give to your clipping from time. And when their fifteen minutes of fame end among hundreds of Facebook news feeds, they are forgotten. Does that mean that the photograph as an object of sentimental value is diminishing in this era of image and information overload? Will we allow that? Wouldn’t it be remarkable if we try to save that culture of remembrance? Maybe revive it and redefine it?

Creatively reinventing the photo album

Ties have been an important part of men’s clothing for a long time and they add elegance to the look of a man. In the earlier days, ties were generally considered to be an accessory to be worn with formal clothes at formal occasions.

Top 5 Caribbean Islands for Spotting Undersea Wildlife

Some envision lazy days on luxurious beaches while dreaming of the quintessential Caribbean vacation. Adventure seekers picture hundreds of brightly colored fish flitting in and out from the coral reef. The Caribbean is known around the world for its incredible shallow reefs just off of island shores, making snorkeling one of the most sought after past times on the islands.

If you are interested in making swimming with the fishes, part of your Caribbean holiday, you will want to book your time on one of these islands:

Roatan

One of 3 islands known as the Bay Islands, Roatan is the largest and can be found off of the northern coast of Honduras. What makes Roatan and the Bay Islands so special is that they are severely under developed in comparison with the other islands in the Caribbean.

10 to Die For Beach Bikini Wear Trends

Summer 2017 is finally here!

Now that the last of the Winter holidays is finally behind us, along with that heart-shaped box of chocolates, it’s time to start thinking beach. Your favorite stores are already racking up the bikinis, and they are smokin’ this season. Start getting ready now if you want to prance around in the sand in one of these sexy numbers.

If fashion week was any indication, Beaches and pools around the world are in for a big treat this summer. From what we saw on the runways, and now in stores, there is tons of diversity in swim wear this season. This should make it a snap to find a suit that looks like a million bucks on any body type.

Secure your place as the babe on the beach with high-waist bottoms, cut out panels and jet-setting prints and you’ll need your own life raft to keep the sharks away.

Eye-Popping Prints

Women look for prints in swim wear to show some skin while camouflaging flaws, and nothing can make your assets stand out better than an eye-popping 3D design. When strategically placed, all eyes are drawn where you want them, overlooking where you don’t. You may even get that sunglass lift look if your prints are placed right.

The Evolocopter - evolution of multirotor design

The Evolocopter - evolution of multirotor design

Well you may not catch me taking a ride in this just yet as I dont think for a moment that the multirotor is proven in flight as much as a helicopter but this is a fantastic stepping stone from concept to reality. Thanks to the fastcodesign guys for inspiring me to write this early in the week. Here is the full suite of images

 

This image found on the google group Aerial Photography and Videography [as we love this kind of good press for drones] and now the coming reality showcased already at the german air show AERO Friedrichshafen 2014 seen here..I count around 14 motos and no doubt you can fly on fewer. So long as there is quite a bit of redundancy then this should be as safe as a helicopter both share the same principals of aeronautics.I think personal transport systems are one of the more exciting things to come. Get me off the darn roads.

Thanks to Johannes Eickhold for use of the image - please credit the owner with comments and a follow.

I know the bed I want but never see the kind of bed for sale on the high street. I like futons but I might prefer some modern take on the low bed. I have headroom but like sleeping close to the floor. I want a contemporary bed design. Plenty to be found online so I will be sharing them here to give you the idea.

Thanks to naturalbedcompany.co.uk - for the next low style japanese style bed. For the above beds - sorry there was no copyright available please contact us to amend this correctly with proof of rights.

How To Refinish Your Mirrored Closet Doors?

Are you thinking of getting your outdated mirrored closet doors refurbished? You are probably deciding right. If your closet doors (whether these are bi-fold doors or any other) no longer interest you or keep up their appearance in line with the overall decor of your room, then it’s time to have them replaced. You can opt for more modern choices while preparing a closet-door project.

While reworking on your closet doors, you will require these following materials and tools before proceeding with the renovation.

Medium density fiberboard strips (preferably three inches in size)Brackets for dowelsHeavy-duty panel adhesiveScrews and drillsOne eighth-inches thick plywoodPaintbrushesOil-based stainWater-based polyurethaneA standard paint rollerNeedle and thread (or a sewing machine)Skil sawWooden dowels and nail gun (five eighth inches in size)

Once you have collected these implements, follow the below given steps carefully to refurbish your closet doors.

First and foremost, remove the mirrored doors from their tracks and turn them over so that their back sides become the new front sides.Attach the fiberboard strips to these new front sides using the heavy-duty panel adhesive. Make sure you leave enough gap between the bottom strip and the frame so as to easily fit the dowel dabbed in fabric.Take the drill and fix the brackets towards the top portion of your newly mounted inner frame.Next, with the skil saw, cut out a mid portion of the plywood. Ensure that this portion is an inch wider in size as compared to the fiberboard frame.With the paintbrush, proceed to apply the oil-based stain to your newly made door skin. To provide it a perfect finesse, apply two coats of water-based polyurethane with the help of a standard paint roller.Now either with a sewing machine or a needle and thread, design curtain panels with finished edges on every side. Complete the task by adding rod pockets both at the top and the bottom. Make sure the panels are at least two to three times wider than the inside of your doors. By doing this, you will achieve a soft pleated look and these panels will no longer be transparent.As the next step, insert the dowel inside the top as well as the bottom rod pockets and fan out the panels uniformly. The dowels should be fitted into the bracket at the top and into the gap at the bottom. Secure the dowels in place using a nail gun.Lastly, firmly secure the plywood door skins to the fiberboard frame with the panel adhesive and the nail gun. Drill the nails at such an angle that they don’t puncture the door skins. Once this is done, you are ready to place back the doors into their tracks.

Redoing your mirrored closet doors is an easy do-it-yourself project. Just in case you think seeking professional help will be a better decision, then definitely choose to do so. All that matters is the task to be executed correctly and efficiently so that you can enjoy a brand new closet door look without much expense.

DJI Inspire Setup and Demo +Inspire App Features

DJI Inspire Setup and Demo +Inspire App Features

Also see below for the answer to the Question : What is the gopro hero 4 black 4k video like ?

I run a Phantom 2 from DJI FPV system which is capable of full 4k professional aerial footage both photographs and video. This inspire takes things to a different level in areas that you may or may not need. I shall explore the inspire further but for now the phantom 2 has everything I need and travels well also.What is the big advantage to the inspire ? Well for me it is the almost full control of the camera while flying. So you can tune the exposure for example or frame rate or resolution, yes it does support 4k up to 25fps so seems to be on a par with the hero 4 black from gopro. But this is adding a lot of cost to the hobbyist and I feel pushes this into the company realm. We will have to see how the production inspires turn out and maybe see what a second generation inspire brings. But in closing it is what dji do best they marry the apps and peripheral stuff to the multirotor model - its how they weave it altogether its what apple would be making if they did quad copters. I am very very happy with mine.

Answering the question on how good is the video of the gopro 4 black edition shooting at 4k in reality? Here is a still made from 4k video with the gopro hero 4 black edition. (the image seen needs to be downloaded or inspected at the full file size it has been reduced in size to fit this blog post.)

In fact its not true 4k but UHDTV with a slightly smaller resolution of 3840 x 2160 (this was my first shock)- you may need to right click to get the image in a new browser tab to see the full size version - or download it and inspect it more closely. I do have to say that you can zoom in and take a crop at a quarter and still see a sharp image. I might be with a lot of people saying that technology has gone beyond what we can natively appreciate ! I think the value of the slow motion 1080p for action sports is worth looking at otherwise 4k might be of use for projecting a large image perhaps. Not sure..
