Protest Picture

Ours is an age of high resolution, Photoshop and 16 megapixel cameras with automatic settings and high ISO noise reduction. We can preview, delete, edit, sharpen edges and correct noise. We can airbrush every single picture of ourselves we post in social media. We can even shoot a major motion picture on an iPhone, and […]

Chandler lived in Monrovia!) I always wondered what they cooked in that sunny kitchen while Philip Marlowe’s dark fate waited on a […]

Sure, it’s pretty, but this daytime moon has nothing on the 2012 Perseid meteor shower. The astronomical event kicked off Friday night but it expected to hit its peak tonight. In fact, NASA says it’s supposed to be “the best meteor shower of the year.” Those NASA scientists aren’t known for hyperbole, so I say […]
