Currently in a black and white kind of mood. Gonna upload some leftover shots of our winter trip to Burma in the coming week.  
Here, it was the tail end of day, almost sunset, and the light was giving it final burst before fading into twilight. Christen and I were dead tired from climbing all over the hills and temples for the day.. and we had just come down from a particularly intense trail where we had to dodge a lot of cattle, goat and human dung. Right as I was biking back to our lodging, I saw this kid drawing water from a makeshift well - how many trips where she carried this metal pot I’m not sure.  Her energy put us to shame.
I snapped a couple of quick shots and prayed that the aperture was all right.

It looks like they just put all the stuff on the table they wanted to jam into a single device. (via Ars Technica)

Met Lindsay at a wedding recently. She sort of humped me so I took a photo of her.

Make sure all's good before changing your PW for Heartbleed

Went to a wedding recently. Got some outtakes during reception hours when people started trading small talk about who does what for work.. A little Wong Kar Wai action here with my good buddy from high school.  
It was kind of hard to take photos without a tripod in the wine cellar, but with a stroke of luck, one of the lights hit the lens right and I got this flare - also got a decent cross shadow to soften up the image a bit. I haven’t adjusted this at all, except to up the contrast +8 and reduce the yellow lighting hue by -20.

After months of teasing, Twitter officially confirmed that its new redesign is nigh. And—brace yourselves—it looks a lot like Facebook.

Wow. First reaction; Twitter could have been a new communications protocol. But now it’s a portal, like the rest.
