A Good Primer To ‘Computational Photography’, I.E., AI Empowered Photography — The Next Frontier Of Digital Photography.

AI (i.e., Artificial Intelligence) is why I am increasingly taking more & more pictures with my Google Pixel 4 rather than with one of my real cameras.

The near state-of-the-art AI in the Pixel 4 makes taking pictures a joy — a piece of cake. I have never believed in post-processing (i.e., PhotoShop). I do NOT have the time or patience. I am click-shoot-and-‘print’. AI makes this that much easier. It is AI that allows the Pixel to take pictures in the dark.

Check out this series. It will tell you where we are headed. Enjoy.

This came as an e-mail from ‘Revels North‘ (New Hampshire & Vermont) this morning.

I was impressed, pleased & proud. Good on them. Bravo. Thanks.

Last week ‘Revels’ (Cambridge) proclaimed their support by sending out a musical video of children singing for peace.

This is why I am such a BIG fan & booster of ‘Revels’. Their heart is always in the right place & they know exactly what note to strike.

Thank YOU.

#BlackLivesMatter.

Google for MORE.


I knew right away on Friday morning that there was something very FISHY about this May 2020 jobs report. Just did not ring true.

Within 3-hours folks had spotted the error.

Did YOU know about this error?

Trump sure did NOT mention it. Numbers are NOT as good as he was making out. They were 3% worse.

You better check it out.

YouTube trailer.


The real Bryan Stevenson —
WHAT A MAN.

Must Watch.

So, so, so topical.

You have NO choice. YOU have to watch it.

Warner Brothers has made it FREE for this month — for #BlackLivesMatter.

Available on YouTube.


Modern day “To Kill A Mockingbird“.

Yes, ALAS, the same story, different characters — young, BLACK lawyer, Bryan Stevenson — but, fortunately, a different (better) ending. Ironically, the movie, which is BASED ON TRUE STORY, includes real references to ‘Mockingbird’ (which also happens to be set in Alabama).

What a story! So disturbing. So topical.

PLEASE WATCH.
