They have the best views...

New York is one of the best places for photography, but to capture the skyline of New York, especially Manhattan; one must go across the Hudson River.

The stretch form New Port to Exchange Place in Jersey City you have breath taking views of Downtown Manhattan. Do not be in a hurry to get there and click pictures; but take your time and reach there just about 20 minutes before sunset and you won't be disappointed. 

The sun setting just behind you casts a beautiful golden hue on the entire city. If you are lucky, go on an overcast day and if the rain clouds are clearing. 

The city that never sleeps; turns on those tungsten and energy efficient LED's once the sun goes down. Transitioning form the Golden hour to the Blue hour is also a surreal experience.

For a place to have the best views of Manhattan, do have some pretty views for themselves as well, Just look around. 

 

Magic in Mosaic

This is by far one of my favorite panorama picture I've taken in a long time. Philly's Magic Garden is an amazing place. Art by Isaiah Zagar, and one of his largest to date. Spans about three city lots, is a labyrinth of mosaics made from kitchen tiles, bike wheels, Latin-American art to china plates. 

Watch All The Apple TV Aerial Video Screensavers

The new Apple TV includes several choices of screensaver, including Aerial, an exclusive set of slow-moving HD video of various landmarks and places in the world. What’s most interesting is that the displayed video actually changes over time, as the Apple TV downloads new videos periodically from an online location.

This is brilliant stuff. From National Geographic photographs to aerial video from major cities in the world. Someone at Apple even thinks about the screen savers.

Shot on iPhone, September 2015

Denver, Aspen, Santa Fe & Princeton. Lot of places visited, lot of pictures taken. Its been a very busy two months. 

My love for taking panorama pictures was evident this month. Capturing mountains in Aspen, to the pueblo architecture in Santa Fe.

Where would you like to be?

I stumbled upon this slide via Dustin Moskovitz’ presentation at a recent conference:

This was the crowd favorite slide at my talk this morning at #startat15. Hopefully we'll have the whole video soon. pic.twitter.com/Ot0Z4bpzVQ

I found myself staring at this image for hours and then sending it to a few of my friends. I’ve been part of each single column multiple time and only today after looking at this slide; I question myself - what am I going to do with this information and where do I want to be? 

I don’t think there is a specific column or block that is better then the other. Its more like what are your tolerance level; pick that block. So the next time you are questioning your role/work; look at this slide. It will make total sense.
