… of white. This is one of my all time favorite shots and features a grouping of white tulips at Filoli Gardens. I have been there during tulip seasons since then and have yet to see a shot like this again. It was the perfect setting and the backlighting was superb. I have sold this image in all sizes, on paper, metal and canvas and it always looks the same … perfection. I did a rework of this for 5 x7 printing on the new line of greeting cards I am coming out with soon. The cards are being printed and I am redoing the website to accommodate them as well as both books, photographic prints and calendars. I got a lot of work in on the site today and am constructing the shopping carts for it too. Something to do if you find yourself a little bored!
A friend sent me a link to an article dealing with the 737 Max debacle. It is a very good look at what went into creating this disaster and although long, it is worth the read. There is a lot more than this, but this article takes a long hard look at decisions in physical hardware (the plane) and software used to offset design issues of the plane. The title of the article is How the Boeing 737 Max Disaster Looks to a Software Developer and the link to it is: https://spectrum.ieee.org/aerospace/aviation/how-the-boeing-737-max-disaster-looks-to-a-software-developer . I like simplicity … I am the software that controls my plane. There was a lot more that went into creating this situation, but the basics are in the article. Informed humans will be needed for a long time to come.
It was a beautiful day and methinks that the ‘morrow shall be so as well. I hope that yours was and shall be too … keep breathing and smiling, life is the ultimate adventure!
Sleep sweetly now that the gates of the crimson night are closed,
and leave tomorrow’s struggle for tomorrow;
The earth is peaceful, only the stars and still moon are abroad, and they wage no war.
— Max Ehrmann
