How to turn small talk into smart conversation
Tips from a comedian and a journalist on the art of going from small talk to big ideas. Try these out at the next summer wedding reception.
The Large Magellanic Cloud is one of my favourite night sky object viewable from the Southern Hemisphere. At a distance of 163,000 light years from earth LMC is considered an irregular type galaxy and the third closest galaxy to our own Milky Way.
For the tech specs of this image, it was shot on a Canon 6D with a Canon 90mm tilt-shift lens, which is such a super sharp lens! The exposure was 10 second shutter at f/3.2 ISO 6400. I had to shoot two single exposure frames to get me and the Large Magellanic Cloud in the one shot, and I stitched them together in Auto Pano Giga.
Hope you like the shot and feel free to share!

Fine art in a snapshot. When it comes down to it, it’s all about finding the right crop.

A candid shot from a fight that broke out in Ukrainian parliament has been turned into Renaissance-style art, and rightly so. http://f-st.co/yDDkv4i
I remember ET as a typical console adventure game of the time. Apparently I was missing something…but looks like this might be good.
ALMA Milky Way

This alluring all-skyscape was taken 5,100 meters above sea level, from the Chajnantor Plateau in the Chilean Andes. Viewed through the site’s rarefied atmosphere at about 50% sea level pressure, the gorgeous Milky Way stretches through the scene. Its cosmic rifts of dust, stars, and nebulae are joined by Venus, a brilliant morning star immersed in a strong band of predawn Zodiacal light. Still not completely dark even at this high altitude, the night sky’s greenish cast is due to airglow emission from oxygen atoms. Around the horizon the dish antenna units of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, ALMA, explore the universe at wavelengths over 1,000 times longer than visible light.
