Thoughts on Photgraphy, possibly new. Probably not.
Nirvana plays, something seems off. I don’t listen to nirvana, not since I was 14. It seems fitting though. I’m thinking about street photography. Music made by a band led by a man who took his own life. The music is great, the lyrics are smart. Street photography is similar. Photography in general is I […]

The Trouble With Taking Good Photos
Taking a good photo is difficult. The hardest part is you almost cannot do it on purpose. You just have to be in the right time and place, at the ready. Who says a shot is good anyway? The first person whose opinion you should seek is your own. Listening to others can be valuable […]
My interest in photos exploded this month. Why now, and not before? Perhaps it’s a kind of mid-life crisis, or a dissatisfaction with my other hobbies and professional efforts. I have some thoughts forming on photography – I prematurely published some earlier. It’s just me exploring why I like photos, taking them, and what I […]
Top Photos of 2014

Responsive Web Design: Breakpoints (Suck)
I’ve been doing responsive web design since it hit the fan in 2010, and it’s really challenged and changed how I do web design in general. (Primer: The basic idea is that the way elements are displayed on the screen changes depending on the width of that screen. That way, a website can look just […]
The Secret of Great Customer Experience
Starbucks vs. Apple
I dented my Macbook screen. My loved window to the world. My canvas. My beautiful, expensive retina screen with the perfect colours and great viewing angles. An investment I planned to cherish for years to come. I like my laptop to have battle scars. But not the screen. I went through a few breif stages […]
This was a part of my design study, the final piece after five weeks of life drawing. We were fortunate to be in a course that included emphasis on the basics of drawing.
Potato & Pea Soup (v1)
Winter is on the way out but it’s still pretty… wintery. Growing up, I used to enjoy mush pea soup at my grandparents place. Here’s a variant of that. Serves: 1 Ingredients: 1 potato 1/4 leek 1 cup of garden peas 2 cups of water 1 teaspoon of salt (to taste). Optional: 1 capsicum 1 […]
Customers are Not the Enemy, Right?
This is a larger story I’m crafting out of one little example. For years I’ve been running into this barrier: wanting to improve customer experience for an organisation that doesn’t. For whatever reason, many businesses refuses to empathise with it’s customers at some point. A great expereince can only be provided by a business that […]
Big ideas in a small size. If I stood for anything, it would be all of this.
The Meaning of a Photo
Well, besides being able to use a camera, here’s what photography means to me as an art. It’s a perspective I’ve been slowly developing for some time, but one that has come into focus recently as I delve deeper. All the statements below aren’t meant as universal truths, they’re very subjective. But it’s fun to […]
