A blog about life, food and photography.

Since I don’t watch much TV, this is how I waste my spare time.

 

I saw this neat trick done on a friend’s Facebook photo album, and on a post from The Projectivist.

Everything looks better miniaturized.

Above is a photo I took from a boat on the Hudson River, of Manhattan. Not my best photo, but awesome as a miniature!

Here is a photo from the Top of The Rock, of Manhattan. Using a tilt shift is great on skyscrapers, especially lots of them.

BTW, I hope you guys like the new August ’09 header! I know it’s technically not correct, since it’s supposed to be a negative, and there’s positive images on there. Plus the images are all square when they should be rectangles. But you get the idea, I know you do. I spent 2-3 hours making that header when I should’ve been doing a lot of other things I needed to do. So enjoy it!

   

This is the Brooklyn Bridge, I think. I’m ashamed I am not absolutely 100% sure which bridge it is. Please feel free to correct me.

This is Bixby Creek Arch Bridge on the West Coast, of Highway 1, California.
