2017-10-04 Recovery Day 212

Today was another good day. I got up around 7:00 and had breakfast with Denise. Around 8:00 I wend for my daily morning walk. Afterwards I did some work in my office before my neighbor Gary came over for about 2 hours. When he left I water our flowers in the backyard.

Why DarkTable?

At the start of this year I posted my article about Switching to Linux from MocOS (OS X). This was sparked by my New Years Resolution to escape from all the proprietary, controlled environments, services, tools and software that I have depended to used for over a decade of computing using a Mac and OS X.

Back On-line

It has been almost a year since my last blog entry. The reason for it is (was) very simple, I got extremely busy with my real business, Illumonus. You may have read my blog entries about Business Semantic Interoperability and my idea about building a Business Semantic Thesaurus called LinguMatic, guess what? It is happening! The concept has been proven during an ISO/IEC/ITU/UNECE Proof of Concept in which Illumonus played a major role.

Cleaning the CCWD Water Canal – Project 365

Had to drop of my car for an oil change to get ready to go South for the Labour Day Weekend. So I spend some time along the nearby Delta de Anza Trail. After walking for about 1/2 mile, my way was blocked by some work crew and their equipment on the trail, not allowing anyone to pass by. Some walkers were not happy to have to turn back since there was no warning at the start of the trail that a portion was closed. Since I had to walk back anyways to pickup my car, I decided to take a few photos before doing so of the work crew trying to clean the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) Water Canal that runs parallel to the trail.

Project 365 Update

This summer has been rather busy with much personal and professional activities which resulted in me not having time to do my daily Project 365 postings. However, this does not mean I did not take photos each day, I just ran out of time for the details required to do the posting. I did however upload my daily photos onto Flickr since it is my second step of my workflow after uploading them into Photos on my Mac.

Apple’s New Photos App for OS X

This is not a review of Photos, there have been many written by now. What it is instead is about my experience with trying to determine if Photos can replace Aperture.

Before going into the details, I should mention that I am not much of a post-photographic processor. I prefer to spend more time in getting the photo done correctly they way I want it inside the camera.

Because of my rare and limited post-processing, I use Aperture more as a Photo Manager, than as an Photo Editor. As I explained in My Post-Photographic Workflow, Part–1 article, I store all my photos on a external RAID drive. I don’t store the photos inside Aperture, but instead use the referenced masters feature.

Birth Place of Antioch, CA – Project 365

Continuing with taking photos of historic significance in my now hometown of Antioch, this set is about the Pioneers Landing Site Monument. Antioch is one of the oldest towns in California, having been founded in 1850. This monument was erected to denote the landing site of the pioneers that landed with Captain George W. Kimball and the birthplace of the City of Antioch on September 16, 1850.
