Daily Thoughts 06/29/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook.

I have been watching some more of Fundamentals of Photography.  I am finding it interesting because a lot of the class is about how to see and look at things from different angles and perspectives.  It is also about patience, light, and composition.

I spent a little time practicing on Picasa.  The book, Digital Photo Editing with Picasa for Seniors has a sample website for photographs to practice with.

I read some more of The Mindful Way Though Stress.  I am reading about how people have negativity bias in their thinking about how things happened.

I spent some time looking through the Zinio collection of electronic magazines. I looked at Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, Wired, and National Geographic.  There is an article on Elon Musk's Hyperloop in the July 1, 2015 Popular Science by James Vlahos on Pp.32-39.  It is both slick and entertaining to read online.

I stopped by the Barnes and Noble bookstore in the local mall today.
