A few Live Photos I took on a recent trip to California, posted using LivePhotosKit JS. To see the video, hover your mouse pointer over the “LIVE” button in the top right corner of the photo. On a phone or tablet, tap and hold the picture.

For best results, use Safari if you’re on iOS. Chrome seems to work best on macOS. It works fine on macOS but seems to be a little buggy on iOS. (Apple says Chrome may work on Android, and any of the major browsers should work on Windows, but I haven’t tried those.)

(I'm still working on getting the Live Photos to display on the front page. Click here to view them.)

Interesting fact: Newark Liberty International Airport is EWR because in the U.S., “N” can only be used by the Navy.

 Why the 'O' in San Francisco's Airport Code, SFO?

Experimenting with depth of field blur in Affinity Photo for iPad

I’ve been using Day One since February 17, 2014, and I have 5,916 entries (although the majority of those are automated entries) in four journals. I’ve recorded everything from my daily routine to job changes to vacations in it.

When I read about the new premium service, I subscribed right away. It’s a valuable service that I use every day, and I want to see it continue for many years into the future, so it’s definitely worth the cost to me. It’s also a rock-solid, dead-simple way to keep a journal, and I strongly recommend it if you’re looking for such an app. The premium service is $49.99/year, but right now it’s discounted to $34.99 for new subscribers and $24.99 for current users of Day One 2.0.

I took this video on May 25, 2017 while taking off from Norfolk International Airport (ORF). This one is a little longer than the other two takeoff videos I’ve posted, but there’s a good view across the water toward the end of the video. (The clouds and sky are nice, too.)
