HDR

HDRI is all the rage in photography. High dynamic range images are so vivid and alive. Just when you think the scenery is amazing in real life, HDR photos brings out the colours in an almost surreal way.

Take a look at these HDR photos of graffiti and here‘s another set.

Todoist

It’s been a busy week and I’ve probably written/typed a few to-do lists for myself, whether it’s on Post-It notes or sending emails to myself. The problem with Post-Its was that I would write the list on a note but if I had to rearrange the order, the note would become really cluttered. With emails, my own to-do list would end up falling to the bottom of the page because of new incoming emails.

I was catching up on John Maeda‘s Laws of Simplicity website and it just so happened that he had started to use an online to-do list called Todoist (not a typo, but like Strobist). So I decided to try it out. It’s been somewhat helpful. You can organize your tasks by priority or by project, make sublists, note deadlines, etc. The best feature I like is being able to cross off items when you’ve completed them. It’s a great feeling when you get things done. :)
