How to Buy a Christmas Tree. Yes, really.

 
Free Shipping On All Orders Above $69 WITH CODE: AFFFS
 THIS POST MAY SEEM RIDICULOUS, BUT BEFORE YESTERDAY, I HAD NEVER BOUGHT A CHRISTMAS TREE. Growing up, I don’t remember ever going along on my dad’s annual trip to buy one, either. So, basically, I’m a total Christmas Tree novice. As usual when I really don’t know what I’m doing, I went online to learn more.   What I needed to know, and what I found out How much does a Christmas tree cost? The average buyer spent about $75 on their Christmas tree in 2016, and cost...

Photos of the Day: “Consumed” by location.href, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY LOCATION.HREF, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY LOCATION.HREF IS APPEALINGLY EMPTY. The beauty of this photo, depicting a vast, abandoned, gutted space, is found in the light and color. Lit only by daylight through through the open ceiling, the clean gray of concrete and the splashes of color from the graffiti really drew me into this photo. I also really like the largeness of the space, depicted well in this composition. Thanks, location.href! More Photos I Really Liked Today   Click here...
IKEA BYÅS TV Bench Review

IKEA BYÅS TV Bench Review

| PHOTO FROM IKEA.COM |   IKEA (ALMOST) NEVER FAILS ME, and the BYÅS TV Bench/TV unit is no exception. This Black Friday, I upgraded to a 4K TV, so of course I needed something to put it on. As usual, when I need a piece of furniture, I head straight to IKEA’s website and peruse their catalog. Why? Because IKEA usually has something that appeals aesthetically to me, and I find if I pick one of their pieces that fits somewhere in the middle-to-upper end of their price range, I get...

Photos of the Day: “B787 Dreamliner – Air Europa (2017)” by Ismael Jordá, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY ISMAEL JORDÁ, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY ISMAEL JORDÁ IS A SHINY, BEAUTIFUL USE OF MONOCHROME. It’s not as easy as you might think to make a rigid object like an airplane look as dynamic as this, especially with the very limited angle options of a person photographing one from the ground. It’s perfectly composed, sharply in-focus, and has great contrast, but my favorite part is probably the color. The deep blue-gray chosen as the palette for this photo is very striking,...

Photos of the Day: “R0369896” by THANASORN JANEKANKIT, and More Photos Inside

| PHOTO BY THANASORN JANEKANKIT, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY THANASORN JANEKANKIT USES COLOR, SHAPE AND PERSPECTIVE TO ACHIEVE A STRIKING RESULT. The rectangular box that the man is holding works nicely with the similarly shaped building in the background, and both, through perspective, seem to be of a similar size. I really like the blue gradient of the right side of the photo and how it works with the lighter blue of the sky. Thanks, THANASORN JANEKANKIT!   More Photos I Really Liked Today  ...

Check Out 2017’s Last Supermoon in Your Local Sky December 3rd

THE SUPERMOON IS HERE AGAIN, and every time, it’s a treat to see. So don’t miss it.   What’s a “supermoon”? “Supermoon”, is not an official astronomical term. Astronomers, according to Wikipedia, instead refer to it as “perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system”. While I appreciate the precise terminology, I think I’ll just stick with plain old “supermoon” for now. It gets the point across. A supermoon occurs when: The...

Photo of the Day: “rzlbd-abstract-my-wall” by rzlbd

 
 | PHOTO BY RZLBD, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY RZLBD, IS BEAUTIFUL IN ITS SIMPLICITY. I really like abstract photography, and this is a great example of one reason why: Abstract photography can elevate everyday surroundings through composition and timing, making something you’d normally just glance at worthy of hanging on your well. The colors are really vibrant and striking, and the compositional choices of how much sky and building to include in the frame really make this photo work....
