Monsters In The Pond

I’m out in Boston to see family this weekend and caught a couple of pond monsters. Fun fact, my moms side of the family lives out here. We’re usually out east around this time of year. They’ve got a huge pond in their backyard, it feels more like a lake to me though. I love the weather during the summer months, I love how cheap lobsters are and how easy it is to catch a damn Sun fish! If you know me, I can’t catch a fish even if my life depended on it.  Honestly, I feel like the same thirsty fish keeps coming back, it’s probably cause it knows I’ll release it. 

P.S I caught a lobster. 

P.P.S Name these fish?

Use iOS “Live Photo” to Make Quick GIF’s

Personally, I really like adding gifs to my gallery. It helps break up the viewing experience and adds a dynamic layer to things. Recently I found out you can quickly make gifs off of the stock iPhone camera app. Here’s how :

1. Turn on the live photo feature. It looks a target symbol. Shown here in yellow.

2. Snap a Photo, not video. Make sure you capture a couple. There’s a 2 second window for how the phone processes the gif. 

3. Navigate to your gallery. Find the photo you like. Swipe up to access the “Live Photo” editor. Choose between : loop, bounce and long exposure. Play with the options to see what you like. 

 4. At this point you can share the Live Photo with other iOS users. But to post on the internet or to share with android users you’ll have to email the photo to yourself. By doing so the phone converts the photo into a gif.  thats all. Enjoy.

It Was All A Dream

Apparently they were 10 hours into their voyage around the world, ran out of fuel and drifted to Pacifica, got caught up by surf and dreams deferred. Im not sure what the plans are for the ship, but maybe we’ll have our selves another ghost-ship like the one in Point Reyes.

Tiger Balms are NostalgiC

Tiger Balm was the cure for everything as a kid. You're sick ? Apply Tiger Balm. You're sore? Apply Tiger Balm. You have a migraine? Apply Tiger Balm. So I wanted to refresh a product I've used all my life.  Here's my first take at a new look and feel of Tiger Balm. Enjoy the process. More to come.
