Hi and welcome to my young and fabulous fashion hot-spot. Do you love being up to date with fashion trends, colors and modern styles? However, you also can’t stop admiring those classy outfits from Mad Men or Mr. Selfridge? Well I am afraid you’ve got the bug. And don’t get frightened – is a good one this time. You’re a classy
lady and you’re up and running turning heads everywhere you go.
Knowing what it’s a huge crash now on the catwalks or on the high street and trying to personalize it with a touch of classiness is the best thing you can do. Matching a neon blouse from Topshop with a pair of leather leggings in black and with black classic pointed toes high heels can make you the Queen of the shopping streets if… you wear them for a lovely dinner with friends in Soho. Put them on for a interview in the City for a broker job and they may disappoint you terribly. There are so many things that a classy bee should take into consideration when she wants to dress to impress and the most important one is the occasion. That’s followed closely by wearing the right stuff for your body shape, and this includes the length, the fabric, the texture, the print and the colors you choose. It may sound fun and simple but staying classy and looking great in the same time it can be a challenge.
Now with the DSLR cameras photographers have to select the focus point and depth-of-field before pressing the shutter to define an area that’s in focus. As we all know, mistakes can happen but now they can be repaired and the days when you’ve been frustrated that you’ve placed the focus point on the nose instead of the eyes, or you got the background instead of the model will be long gone.
Soon it will be possible to take one photo and decide later, after downloading the photo, where you’d like the point of focus to be. An idea that could revolutionize photography. And how is that going to happen ?
One company from US is expected to launch Lytro, a camera that allows you to focus retrospectively by recording with a new type of sensor the color,intensity and vector direction of every ray of light.This radical technology will be incorporated in a “Light Field ” camera, being comparable more with a point-and-shoot camera than with a DSLR but his the creators have some ambitious plains with this new technology which is believed to be the most significant shift in photography since the transition from film to digital.The extra data in the light passing through the lens enables Lytro to memorize multiple points of focus in one image and allows the user to change the final look of each photo after it’s been taken.
We are now keen to see if the words of investor Marc Andreessen who stated ” Lytro’s breakthrough technology will make conventional digital cameras obsolete” will come true or maybe how soon this will be?
Would you be able to give up on your phone also or your IPAD? And how much do they worth to you? As they say in this video maybe you are richer than you think you are. Think about it. After you’ll see the video you would want to think a little bit more on this.
As for myself I couldn’t give up on Internet very easily. I am almost addicted( or can I say almost? I speak with my friends on Messenger, I see regularly updates from my friends life on Facebook, I find my clients on Internet,I am cooking on blogs recipes, I buy tickets, clothes, books etc. and I have all day long the biggest library in the world if I want to find or learn new stuff.Do you want more? I am sure you don’t need because you are doing much more things on Internet than me.Finally I think that, even if I would like to give up it won’t be possible, I would still have to interact with it some how.
I know it’s been a long time since I didn’t write anything on my dear blog and I apologize for that my dear Thoughts Shredder. I want to tell you now a short story through some of the photos I shoot in one special day. It was the first of January, the first day of 2011 and also the first time I had seen something like that.
I’m talking about The New Years Eve Parade, a lively and vibrant London event wich encompasses a number of famous London landmarks in its route, including Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey. Crowds of 500000 people are expected to line the streets to cheer the parade as it passes. Sounds like fun.
I am careful to occupy a real good place in Pall Mall area to be able to take some great photos.
3.2.1. and Go SHOOT!
This year marks the silver anniversary of the New Years Day Parade extravaganza, a tradition that has brought the weird and the wonderful to the streets of London for 25 years. The New Years Day Parade is also one of London’s biggest charity fundraising events, having raised over a million pounds since the first parade in 1987.
For a gray rainy day of January my eyes are now rinsed with such magnificent colors.
Thousands of performers from all over the world are expected to take part this year, London residents and international performers alike, with everyone from dancers and musicians to clowns and puppeteers taking to the streets for some hours.
Even if there are only a few degrees these people don’t seem to care about it. And many of them made a long way to get here from US. [/caption]
I am witnessing a fairytale world with carriages, donkeys, elves. Alice in Wonderland is here too.
Jack Sparrow is in a good mood today. Or not?
Highlights included cycling clubs, Merrydowners Morris dancers, London Fire Brigade, an army of clowns, minis and morris minors, and a whole load of donkeys.
There were approximately a hundred different groups and performers that have been strutting their stuff at the parade, from American high school marching bands to London hospitals to environmental groups.
