Reading list

Looks like I forgot that it was Friday yesterday, so I did not do a reading list update. So instead, will do it today. So this week I read two books. From the fiction side, I quite enjoyed the The Singularity Trap by Dennis E. Taylor. It’s a great sci-fi story from a great author. If you have not yet read the Bobiverse series by this author you really should :)

From non fiction, I read 10% Happier by Dan Harris. I’m interested in meditation as a way to focus more on single things, so the title sounded intriguing. But it was just a disappointment. For an author that claims to get rid of his big ego, he just talks about himself and only himself. Not worth the time I spend on it.

Right now i’m back to fiction, and I started the Soul Survivor by Dean Koontz. I read few books from this author before, so will see where this one goes.

Framed view from the Business bay

I don’t remember why this frame was in the middle of the Business bay. There was some description, but it was already few months ago, so I’m not sure what it was. But it looked nice as something to make a framed view, even though the blue lights around it were quite strong.

So here I used the 12mm Laowa lens, so I can get really close to the frame and get as much of the business bay as I can into the shot (the frame is not small, it was around 2m tall). There was still a little bit of distortion, as even with a zero distortion lens, you just can’t be so close and not getting any. But it was very easy to fix in Lightroom.

This is a three shot blend, edited in Lightroom, blended in Photoshop.
