Lenticular Clouds Over Lake Crowley, California April 27, 2013

I didn’t take this photo but i just had to share it. Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. Lenticular clouds can be separated into altocumulus standing lenticularis (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL). Due to their shape, they have been offered as an explanation for some Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings.

Why Facebook is Blue? April 26, 2013

I just finished reading a great article by Leo Widrich about the science of colors and I had to share. Colors are a lot more important than most developers think. It’s not just about what looks good or what does the client like. It can be hard to try and convince a client that a color can have more impact than they think. Leo’s article goes to great lengths to help illustrate this point. To answer the question propose in…

Teaching the dog to jump April 25, 2013

Needless to say I was pretty impressed. I am not sure who I am more impressed with, the dog or my daughter. Right-click or ctrl-click this link to download.

Oahu April 24, 2013

I just found this amazing video with images from the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It really makes me miss home. I can easily recognize most of the places featured in this video and can’t wait to get back so I can enjoy the aloha spirit and the magic of the aina (aina – land, especially Hawaiian ancestral lands. That which feeds.). https://vimeo.com/m/63924812 Oahu from Filmingo Films on Vimeo.

Collection of Tilt Shift Photos – Tadaa iOS App April 20, 2013

Here are some more photos using the iOS app Tadaa and their tilt shift tool. I have written about this app before and it seems to be my go to tool for more advanced editing sessions. I have been using Tadaa for quite while and I do love using this app. It’s by far the best app for iOS for making TiltShift style photos. Tadaa is free and everyone should have this on their phone. Some apps will reduce the size of…

Beautiful Yahoo Weather App April 19, 2013

Yahoo has just released a beautiful weather app for the iPhone (no iPad yet) that blends location based Flickr photos with a clean interface. I have always been a big weather junkie and probably have way too many apps related to weather. I tend to prefer information over design when it comes to weather apps (sat24 is the one I check first) but I may be clicking on this more. My only real grip so far is the icon used…
