This last week have been rather hectic for me, so I honestly don’t remember what week we are on for the “What’s This?” theme. I think it’s Week5, but perhaps someone could confirm this for me in the comments. Truth be told, I also have not had the luxury of much surf time so I don’t have much in the way of web traffic to point people to. Just a couple links to float out there for you. First, this is day 6 of the first ever CB photo contest “Photographing Freedom”, so keep that in mind. News and info on that available from the July 3 post here.
In web news, I will say that there was an amazing post by a guest writer at Scott Kelby’s blog today. (I am going to refrain from my personal thoughts on the subject, but it’s worth reading – especially if you have a background in higher education like I do). I’d be interested in hearing what others think on this subject in the comments.
The other fun bit of news also involved another guest writing on Scott’s blog, courtesy of John Nack, one of the senior staff over at Adobe. He wrote on his appearance about the desire for transparent windows and was met with a little bit of ruffled feathers from others in the field. Check out the respective posts to the discussion here, here, and here to get Matt K.’s take, John’s take, and then Jeff Revel’s take. Interesting world we live in. Three people all with direct ties to “the man” and three different opinions on it. I wonder which way Adobe is going to go on this? While I realize that there is some agreement on parts of it, and alternatives vary depending on whether you’re talking about transparency or translucency, but to me, it’s a window that I have off on my second monitor anyway, so I don’t really care. Go with John’s approach and devote R&D to other more meaningful improvements. But, I said this would be a quick post today, and this is starting to ramble, so I’l leave it up to the readers: Where do you think PS development should go?
So, moving quickly to the “What’s This?” subject for this week, I went through some of my own archives to see if I could find an interesting crop (and I did), so here is a crop of a much larger image. I’ve tried to keep some of the context, but at the same time make it intriguing to guess what this is. So, without further ado…What’s This?:
Last week, in case you hadn’t guessed it – it was a flower! Congrats to those who knew and saved their comments for a more challenging post (ahem – today!) Good luck, have fun, Happy Shooting and we’ll see you here tomorrow!
