I mess around with photography, and roses are one of my favorite subjects. In color or black & white, they’re beautiful.

I love this little lens combo for my iPhone. It combines a wide-angle, telephoto, and macro lens into one convenient package. I especially like the macro lens; it turns out some amazing photos. You can get an Olloclip Macro 3-IN-1 Photo Lens for iPhone 5/5s – Black at Amazon. See more of my Olloclip photos on Flickr.

French director Thomas Jullien assembled 852 separate images from 852 different Instagrammers, and made a movie. It’s pretty cool. See any of your pictures in there?

From Design Taxi:
Using a Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone, which has a 41-megapixel camera, Trillo took 41 photos along Fifth Avenue and digitally stitched and combined them to create a seamless video that shows the city over the course of the day.
Cool idea, and well-executed. You can see the “making of” video over at Design Taxi.

For a variety of reasons, I’ve been in something of a slump when it comes to posting. There’s plenty of interesting things going on, but they’re all being covered ad nauseum by lots of people. Last week, I only posted one time because we were on vacation on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. We love it there; I’ve been down there at least once every year since 1976. Here’s some photos I took last week:

This is great. These folks have a Go-Pro camera set up, and a seagull steals it and carries it away. Obviously, the owners were able to locate it, or you wouldn’t be watching this. Story here

I like time-lapse videos. This a good one by Tom Ryaboi, shot in Toronto.

We went to the State Fair of Virginia at Meadow Event Park in Caroline County last Friday. I took a bunch of pictures.

Videographer Paul Wex takes a trip to Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean just northeast of Madagascar. He also composed and performed the music. Nice.
