Thoughts among the tangled web of creations

Apple’s iPhones have some of the best cameras on any smartphone available, but for enthusiasts, the lack of manual controls can be a downer.

A recent addition to the app store is looking to change that. Manual gives you full independent control over ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and even exposure bracketing.

New App Gives You Full Manual Controls Over Your iPhone’s Camera

The Washington Post launches a new podcast series on leadership with David Sedaris's heartening short meditation on good-personhood. David Foster Wallace touched on a different aspect of the same idea in what's possibly the greatest definition of leadership ever.

But as a related lament, if a respected publication’s otherwise wonderful new podcast series on leadership opens with a 15-second ad, what exactly is it leading toward? A leader’s every choice, big or small, pushes the world either closer to a better reality or further away from it.

Revolutionary Telescope Gets Green Light

An 82-foot telescope boasting ten times the resolution of the Hubble Space Telescope has successfully passed design reviews and is ready to be constructed.

The Giant Magellan Telescope will use a light-collecting mirror surface more than six times the area of current instruments to hunt for distant, potentially habitable planets and let astronomers time travel back to a billion years after the Big Bang.

“Not all those who wander are lost.”  ― J.R.R. Tolkien

Ever wish you could just hop on a plane and fly somewhere new? Well, I feel like that almost all the time. I am the type of person who loves friends and family and the feeling of home, but I am also the type of person who is always looking for a new exploration. Something new to learn. Something new to see. Someone new to meet. Life is just too boring without a little bit of adventure. 
This photograph was taken on my flight to Los Angeles in April 2013. I had no idea what that trip had in store for me. I was the Art Director for the film, Escalation. I spent a week with an amazing cast and crew of people who I will remember for a lifetime because they were there when I fell in love with the energy and excitement of being a part of something new. 
I look forward to the day that I will hop on that plane again to spend time in a new part of the country, or even world that I have yet to experience. There is so much in the world left for me to discover. I’ve barely even begun. I’d be content with just wandering the world, taking in every moment and treasuring each friendship that comes along the way. 
I think I’m just going to roam around and see what happens. 

Absolutely adore this post. Wanderlust…a defining aspect of who I am, and who I will continue to be. Wanderlust is not just limited to the physical world, and that’s what I like about this image and post. There are so many places to go in books, movies, poems, photographs, art, etc… The world does not just simply end at what you can see…your imagination will take you farther. The possibilities are endless.
