Someone once told me that the world is upside down but our minds correct this and we see the world right-side up. Sky side up. This is not true. The world is right-side up and our eyeballs are curved like a crystal ball that focuses light onto the retina.

It just so happens that the most adaptive way to represent this data is in a way that doesn't disorient us and lead to injuries; right side up.Read More
I used to work for a large video game store. One where you might Stop to buy Games. I mostly sold bullshit. Grown men coming up and saying "I wanna pretend I'm driving a car.

Fractal Focus recently purchased a Canon G7X Mark II and I decided to take it out to one of my favorite places to walk and take photos. I took these photos today walking Marine Drive along the Columbia River Gorge. My brother and I decided to get this camera mainly for travel and Instagram because it allows us to take a camera anywhere and everywhere that has more capabilities and better quality than a phone camera.
