    I was looking for inspiration for this year's holiday decorations and I found this gallery. These photos were from last year and I'm amazed how people still managed to do these traditions amidst the pandemic. Definitely looking forward to this year's photo gallery! https://www.theguardian.com/lifeands...ld-in-pictures

    Black and white photos are so unforgiving. They either evoke emotions or none at all.

    I agree with this. Also, in the topic of cinematography, I recently caught one of the Harry Potter films on cable and remembered how great the scenes where filmed. Its amazing how simple shots can look magical with the right angle, lighting and a bunch of really creatives folks.

    Since I browsed through your shared link, I can't stop checking other websites for pictures regarding the current situation. It's all over the world, first world countries, developing, and even least-developed countries are facing the same crisis. It's really unbelievable that we are experiencing this right now.

    The Telegraph has compiled different pictures from all over the world. You may want to check this link: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/c...hina-pictures/ So many people have died, masks are required, and social distancing is the norm.

    Wow. That was a powerful photo gallery. It kind of made me sad
    mjmnl. The last normal photo I have on my phone was a photo of my kids at the zoo. That was the last time they actually saw the world on its normal glory. Although the beauty of youth is that you're looking at everything through innocent eyes, I feel sad that they have to put the adventures of childhood on hold. I'm glad you get to celebrate your birthday when everything was still normal. Its bittersweet to reminisce the old days, but I am hoping for better days ahead when this pandemic is finally over.

    It's crazy how everything changed as shown on the pictures in that link you shared. I saw this article (https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-52622673) on BBC and it got me checking my phone. It was my birthday before the lockdown in our country, my last picture was my celebration together with my loved ones. I haven't seen them until now because we are all trying to keep everyone safe by not infecting each other. Nobody knows if one person is infected not unless they get tested. So we're keeping it this way. I just wish everything will get back to normal. Thanks to the pictures, at least we can reminisce those good times.

    Stumbled up a movie from 2017 starring Ed Harris called Kodachrome. Final days of a famed photographer who preferred to use rolls of film compared to digital. Interesting movie, a bit of a tear jerker but shows a big difference between film and digital photography.

    I am really amazed at how photographers make a picture look alive and tell a story in one image. Photos are a great way to keep memories and everyone can take photos. However, it takes a skilled and talented photographer to bring the image to life and make the person looking at the image gasp in awe. Like, Woah, that's amazing! 📸📸📸😍😍😍

    i just stumbled across this thread.

    I can identify with the Mama deer. I have my eye on those eyeing my baby. I'll always be behind my kids, supporting them, protecting them, keeping an eye out for danger.

    Recently, I found myself binging Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. They're both known comedy/tragedy drama series that has earned a seat in the best of TV shows. I realized, most of its charm revolves around how discreet or how skillful the scenes are cut.

    For those who want a cinematic eye in storytelling with film or photography, I'd recommend both those shows because it applies immersive angling and placement to put hints across.

    I checked out all the pages you recommended and I just lost track of time. 😁 Keep those references coming. I enjoy looking at the world from the photographers' eyes.

    I love black and white photos. They tend to focus more on the subject, less on the techniques and compositions, and the interplay of lights and shadows on the subject immerse the viewers with the intended emotions.

    Here are some great white and black photos I found online https://iso.500px.com/best-of-2015-t...-white-photos/

    I am obsessed with sunsets. I like the dramatic colours that come with it, those transitions from light to dark. It can be tricky to get that perfect shot though.

    For those who enjoy sunsets, here are some sunset shots and tips on how to take good sunset photos: https://www.thephotoargus.com/beauti...t-photography/
