The World Through Your Eyes


#81

Ayyyyy, awesome dude! Take good care of that little palm bro! :hugs:


#82

Thank you, and I love your photos!

That’s beautiful! And that building you took a picture of, is that a castle? I don’t have anything remotely resembling that near by me… Mostly I see houses, barns, lots of cows…

That’s an adorable little palm!


#83

Inb4 I delete it


and I call this “the hand” even tho it requires you to be a bit creative :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Edit: Going through my pics I noticed the HUGE jump in quality from S5 to S6 :exploding_head:


#84

It’s absolutely amazing the quality of photos that phones can take nowadays…

Do you go through and delete a lot of photos? I don’t have enough photos to fill up the SD card that I usually just let it sit there…

It definitely looks like a hand, that’s for sure…


#85

Well, I delete all the trash - mediocre stuff from time to time. I have an USB stick dedicated to all my pics and that’s like 10Gb+ of pictures and today I decided to go through all of it to tidy my collection up a bit :slight_smile:
Many pics look fine on a phone display, but once you check them out on the desktop you can notice things out of focus that appeared to be sharp before, or things like a tiny part of a finger that was a bit too close to the lens lol

I’m glad am not the only one seeing that :grin:

Edit: e.g. this looks cool imho but it’s out of focus :confused:


and then there are just pics I took cause it was cool to me at some point

(also out of focus ugh)


#86

Auto-focus on phones often focuses on things that I don’t want it to.

I like that picture of the kalanchoe growing out of asphalt, surely nature telling us to stop messing with it… :slight_smile:

As for focusing on a bright object like the sun through the clouds… with the bright center and stark contrast, it’s always so difficult to take an in-focus photo, since there’s not much to focus on.


#87

Dude I think I found a pic I took that you will like :grin:


I now remember that this was a very cute and calm ant :smile:


#88

The castle thing was so adorable I went out and took a pic for you hahaha super sunny day again ^^

It’s just buildings hahaha cool looking for sure, but no castle.

They do look like tiny cute castles :joy: made my day srsly.

PT update

He’s name is Tim now.

@CrazR your photos are dope man :ok_hand: I liked the green breaking out of the road

Exactly what I said.


#89

I checked back into this thread so much and it didn’t show me your reply :open_mouth:
Anyway, one can focus on the clouds so that often works just fine, often…

Why thank you @Rilover :blush:


#90

I have some important questions, check your mailbox.


#91

You are being so publicly secretive… :wink: :smile:


#92

I am admitting I don’t know what the ant is, but I am going to figure it out.


#93

well, now we all want to know what type of ant this is man


#94

You and me both…


#95

well y man, the fact that u don’t know rly intrigues me y know, I’m sure u usually know all ant types immediately, too me it just looks like a regular ant, rofl, i’m sure u asked him where he photographed it, lol


#96

not even close, my ant ID is very bad… Actually the amazing thing was that my advisor also wants to know what it is…


#97

yr advisor? for like a thesis or so?


#98

yes


#99

nice man, i don’t mean to pry, and u certainly don’t have to answer if u don’t want to, but may we know its subject? I just like to hear about such things, and i quite respect someone who has expertise in a specific subject (or several). Sadly i’m not like that, but I’m a pretty good copy editor and am happy enough with that, lol

I work on ants and spiders… Everything else is classified but once I start publishing papers I can provide links to them (should be about a year or two).
