"Those who have never seen Superior get an inadequate, even inaccurate idea, by hearing it spoken of as a 'lake,' and to those who have sailed over its vast extent the word sounds positively ludicrous. Though its waters are fresh and crystal, Superior is a sea. It breeds storms, and rain and fogs, like the sea. It is cold in mid-summer as the Atlantic. It is wild, masterful, and dreaded as the Black Sea." - Rev. George Grant, Ocean to Ocean, 1872

@zombiecube I see a lot of oil paintings that are stunning enough to be photos.

@CStamp it isn't the person who took a photo job to run risk management for anyone else. That's all on them, IMHO.

@EricCarroll @wcbdata that's one of my least favorite songs in the world.

@Tomsprints2 there are a lot of paintings out there that I wish someone would have photographed when they were painted. I think museums would be better that way.

@smallsees I've seen 20-footers and have seen the aftermath of waves bigger than that on the big lake. the light in this lighthouse is 48 feet (15 m) above the water level.

@sortius I used to guide sea kayaking and have paddled some long expeditions, and from my experience fresh water waves are much more difficult to paddle in than salt water. They are steep and have short periods and move faster. If you get a chance watch the documentary "Unsalted."

@jjhaller you got the feeling. It was a bike lock. It's funny because it was the same combo I use on my other lock.

For years, Affinity's users have been voting with their wallets, choosing perpetual licenses over Adobe's subscription-based suite. We were buying more than access to software; we were buying autonomy and the promise of ownership.

But now, with Canva's acquisition, it feels as though that promise is in jeopardy.

@Daojoan I was disappointed when I heard the news.

I realized today that there's been a dark and moody theme running through my photography since the start of the pandemic. It isn't all my work, but it has been a constant addition and is different than what I did before.

bryanhansel,
@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

@mmdolbow thank you!

I don't know much about art, but I try to practice expressive photography, in which I try to put my emotions into the photos, so it makes sense it is there. I just didn't notice that I had so many of these darker images.

@bobhenryphotos he has the best quotes about photography!

The talking heads on TV news have done a good job of convincing their audiences that they aren't the elite. Hiring Ronna McDaniel to be a talking head should be a clue that the major news sources are fundamentally corrupt to their core.

A nauseating move by NBC News.

“NBC hires former RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, who has demonized the press and refused to acknowledge Biden was fairly elected”

@samlitzinger wow. This is a wtf move. The news is corrupt to the core.
