Personal Favorite Photographers

Lost robot asks for directions to find its way.

A team from the Technical University of Munich programmed their robot to ask people for directions then set it loose it in the real world. This was no carefully constructed laboratory maze, but real streets with real people, and real obstacles. They told it to get to a destination 1.5 km away. The robot had no pre-made map or GPS. It had to ask for help, look at the direction that people pointed, say "thank you" and try to use their input to get to its goal without running…

Music and Spiritual Practice - An Overview of Poligraf (part 1)

Music has been an essential part of my life since the end of the 80s.



The adventure began during the second of my four years of studying electrical engineering at Université Laval in Québec City. Through various friends and contacts I reconnected with progressive rock, a form of music to which I had already been exposed to in my youth thanks to my older brothers and sisters. Hearing the music of bands such as Yes, Rush, Genesis, and King… Continue

Sexy - Mario Testino

There's something completely sexy about this photo shoot by Mario Testino that has me coming back to it over and over again. The way the model has this nervousness about herself - the slightly self-consciousness makes it all the more appealing. I love the lighting and use of gold and orange colored accessories. And the last picture is just completely arresting, isn't…

Is it work or is it play?

I've always been fascinated with athletes. Take the best - the strongest, the fastest, the most agile - put them together and then stand back in awe and admire their unbelievable, almost super natural abilities. Are they having fun? Do they see their work as play?



I like this quote I came across today because it's a philosophy on how to live.
