Notes that actually made it past the "Publish" button

Droplets on the Leaf

One of those random plants in our backyard that I never noticed for a long time until a bunch of flowers bloomed out of nowhere last year...

Added a vignette, brought the exposure down, and boosted the saturation and clarity in Polarr.

Typed.com

in thoughts

My year trial of Ghost.org is ending pretty soon, and well, there are a few things I didn’t really like about it. Mostly just how it worked in general.

I did think about going back to WordPress, and someone recommended Pelican when I was talking about it on a IRC chatroom. But, I didn’t want to deal with having to always update the software and plugins anymore, nor am I really interested in having to maintain a static generator.

And so when I found Typed, and saw how far along it was, how easy enough it was to make a theme, and that the admin was very straightforward, I setup an account and decided this is where I was going to put up my stuff for the foreseeable future.

So here it is, I’m like at 5.0 of my blog now? Let’s see how this goes this next year.

P.S. I am not a fan of the Bootstrap framework. Maybe I’ve been away from this stuff way too long, but wow, I think I’d rather do it as I go along rather than figure out what I’m supposed to be overriding with my stylesheet file!

Leaves

Pulled these out from our front yard and shot them on the bench, added the Clear filter and cropped in Polarr.

Birds in the Sky

Composite edited with Darkroom and Pixelmator, was lucky to be outside my backyard when a few group of birds decided to fly by. What makes this even more special for me is that these are the first shots I took with my new iPhone 6S Plus.
