Configuring the LG G7 ThinQ Side Buttons - Sprint Product Ambassadors

The LG G7 ThinQ continues to surprise me with nice features.  Instead of hard-coded shortcuts for the side buttons (volume, etc) the ThinQ offers several different options to configure what the side buttons do!

Moto E5 Plus Photo Comparison - Sprint Product Ambassadors

A couple of posts ago we saw a photo comparison where the photos from the E5 looked dull and washed out compared to a premium phone.  So I had to try it -- I shot photos from my Samsung Galaxy S8, the Moto E5 (both automatically set to HDR) and my long in the tooth Canon T3i DSLR. All photos were processed through Adobe Photoshop Elements to resize them to 1800px wide and add the text; no other corrections were done.


First, the 'Reference Shot' from the Canon T3i - washed out.  Evaluative metering couldn't handle the bright sun on the tree and the dark shadows in the back corner.  But I wanted to keep the composition the same - for a better shot, you'd eliminate some of the contrast.



Next up, the Samsung Galaxy S8.  Much better job with the auto HDR - shot with no changes to the settings, just point and shoot, keeping the composition the same.



Finally, the Moto E5 Plus.  A bit darker in the dark areas, but the brightly lit tree has better definition.  All in all, the Moto E5 Plus will shoot.  I have no complaints about the 12 MP camera outdoors.

Typewriter Fonts

Found this brilliant site with dozens of old typewriter fonts - they truly look like old, worn down, thin ribbon typewriter typing (minus the whiteout - although you can almost smell the whiteout when you read it on the printed page).

Seems to work well on the Mac!

2000 June Blues Fest at Grant Park

Back in the day we'd roadtrip up to Chicago every June for the Chicago Blues Fest and sit on the lawn at Grant Park, enjoying the day go by.  Here's a short clip of (I believe) the last Blues Fest held in Grant Park.

Overdone

9 years ago I worked a full day; went to happy hour, then to Westport for Crystal Method.  I'm not 25 anymore.  Quick livestream from the couch.
