I don't think you see pictures of that scared persons often:
a little girl that just escaped syria
yeah - we get them fleeing over the border. It's kind of a known secret that a handful come through every day for medical care... It's too bad we don't have the resources to help more of them.
It's also a shame that the world doesn't see the help that Israel does provide to its neighbors, even in the midst of fighting and wars.
I'm back from teh Jersey Shore and nursing a bit of a sunburn (the sun was so strong, even my perfect Italian skin got a bit burned).

At that moment I realized that Netscape has gotten into the smartphone accessories market! It's a selfie stick with a built in web/calendar/directory server!
So of course I had to go look up the current status of the brand. Unsurprisingly, Oracle has it right now. They are even using it a tiny bit. It's anyone's guess whether "web servers" and "selfie sticks" are in different enough market sectors to avoid a trademark infringement lawsuit. Of course, as I mentioned above, this is Cheap Chinese Crap sold at a boardwalk shop, so they could put the Oracle logo on it and still move a million units before anyone caught up with them.
So ... selfie sticks. Is anyone other than teenage girls using them? Are there any applications for "real" photography?
I would expect some Youtubers use selfie-sticks for recording, but as for taking selfies with them... I think such people gain a fair amount of deserved scorn.
for beach photography, the killer app is fairly specific: one guy and two hot babes lying face-down on a beach blanket, shot from a close-in, head-on perspective.
that's where the selfie stick comes in
Protip: if you are an art teacher, never instruct your students to paint "candlelight"
Do, however, instruct them to paint 'happiness'. Heh.
Ah... okay... yeah...
I guess you failed the Rohrschach test.
This is what -114°F looks like
Picture above is in this story:
Yeah, wind chill is a bit of a fiction. I've skied on some nasty days that turned my nose into a crusty, scabby mess when I neglected to cover it up... but, if you're going to cover up exposed skin, you'll probably be just fine.
My house is at 5600 and I think that's low.
