Meeting Thomas Leuthard

Let's start with a little history. I have always loved photography, but it did not become part of my daily routine until about year ago. Last year I switched all my gear to micro four thirds system, which allowed me to bring the camera with me everywhere and I also discovered and read a book called Going Candid by Thomas Leuthard. After reading his book is why I actually started exploring street photography, I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys photography to read it. I was hoping one day to have the pleasure to meet with Thomas and last night I finally did meet with him over dinner and we took a nice photowalk together to Time Square. First I want to say thank you to him and second here are some pictures from our walk, please enjoy:

Thank you for Reading

Pebble Review & Thoughts

This will be a follow up on my previous post where I wrote about meeting +Eric Migicovsky who is one of the founders of +Pebble smart watch. My quick thoughts on the watch, enjoy :)
I finally have the watch in my hands for almost 4 days now, let's start right of the bet on the battery it is still holding charge, but the indicator of low battery is on now and I probably have until about morning before I need to charge it. I received the watch on Thursday afternoon, charged it and now its Sunday night, hopefully this give you an idea of the battery life. The battery on my iPhone also suffered a bit. Moving on to the actual functionality of the watch, well it is not perfect and still has a way to go, but with that being said, I still love it, I love the convenience of knowing who is calling or what email I received without having to constantly look at my phone. Yes the device has some bugs, but I know the team at +Pebble is working hard on fixing them. If i had to give this watch a grade i think it deserves a solid B+ as the potential is there and it is being worked and improved on weekly.
Here is my wishlist: more watch faces, weather, improved battery life, maybe some canned responses to text messages.

This report has been brought to you from the Big Apple, from hopefully its last snow storm for this winter :)
