This article reminds me that I might someday be too busy making aerial photography to spend money on books of aerial photography. But the odds are that I'll do both...

Drone Photos from Around the World #ArtTuesday

Via Digital Trends

While early designs were more of a backyard novelty (and often a nuisance) than anything else, the latest drone models are loaded with advanced cameras and stabilization technology that allows for more practical outdoor uses. Now designed with extended operational range, long gone are the days of simply buzzing — and often caroming — about the backyard or neighborhood. Whether you’re traversing the bridges of a modern city or hiking a mountain far from civilization’s reach, there are sights worth preserving in a photograph, and while handheld cameras can capture the human perspective, drones offer a new point of view.

Itchiku Kubota created the most elaborately dyed and stitched kimonos Ihave ever seen.

Itchiku Kubota created the most elaborately dyed and stitched kimonos I have ever seen. They are stunningly beautiful, and you could get a magnifying glass and just get lost in them...

(I enjoyed viewing these up close in Toronto at the Textile Museum of Canada.)

I am back from Toronto, and so I learned about their eastern painters, the Group of Seven, who painted very Canadian (mostly eastern) landscapes.

(Emily Carr covered the west - she wasn't in their group, but may be more famous.)

Sightseeing with a broken foot is a bad idea, but my foot was doing well in its big boot, so I did a LITTLE walking around the King's Cross/Saint Pancras area. Luckily, the British Museum is there! It was my first visit, during one of their Friday late nights, and it charmed me.

The cold snap that went across Europe in late February and early March caught me while in Switzerland on business: it was just 13 degrees Fahrenheit (-10.55 C) one morning when I stepped outside... and not much warmer until it started to snow, when it finally got back up into the 30s.

The boot for my broken right foot wasn't very snow friendly. :) Remind me not to break metatarsals.

I spent a couple days in Germany last month, with a gal who has been my friend since 1984 or so.
