*Perhaps just a bit of hyperbole On Wednesday morning, after a sudden illness, we had to make the difficult, but ultimately for-the-best, decision to say goodbye to our beloved Winston. You may not have known Winston, but if you ever had the chance to meet him, he would’ve loved you instantly. He was like that…he loved everybody, oftentimes with boundless enthusiasm that consisted of cuddles and “kiss attacks”. We adopted Winston in the Spring of 2010; Laura and I had just gotten married the year before and had moved to a new neighborhood in...

It’s that time of year again where I take a look at how Flickr has ranked the photos I took this year and share the ten most-interesting according to their mysterious “Interestingness” algorithm. As always, the misfortunate side-effect of ranking a year’s photos this way is that it’s entirely possible that I shot some photos this year that are better than these but have not yet posted them. I post a new photo every day on my photoblog at 75CentralPhotography.Com and invite and encourage you to check in periodically to see even more great photos....

For my year-end wrap up this year I’ve done something a bit different. Below are the “Most Interesting” photos from each month as determined by Flickr’s Interestingness algorithm. While a bit-flawed in that I may have not yet published the truly-most-interesting photo for a given month, it’s nonetheless interesting to see how Flickr’s algorithm ranked my photos.

Just a quick note that Fiji Water, as part of its ongoing city guides, recently released their Dallas guide.  And, happily, they’re featuring my photo of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge from June 23, 2013 on the masthead. So, go drink some Fiji Water to say thanks for me!

I’ve been slowly going through the photographic effects of my grandparents’ estate—slides, negatives and prints from a lifetime of travels and working in the oil industry.  Earlier this evening, I was flipping through some preliminary scans of prints and slides I did a few months back and found this one: One of the drawbacks of this collection of random photographs is that most are unlabeled.  Some are easy to figure out, such as these: (Paris, obviously) (Luckily I was aware that my grandparents had traveled to Alaska in the 1970s, so it was...

So, as you may have heard, it’s recently come to light that Apple tracks your iPhone’s location for Quality-Of-Service reasons.  Unfortunately, they don’t purge this data after a certain time period and it’s backed up on your computer when you run iTunes’ back up process for your iOS device.  Of course, I actually found this fortunate, because I could see where I’d been over the last year. And, damn, my last year has been boring, judging by the map below.  A lot of time in Dallas (which is where I live, so that’s...
