My take on this is the inclusion of the 5 drones. If we take todays drone technology you could walk for 15 minutes each way so its obviously not talking about todays drones. Plus you don’t actually see any drones only a made up simulation. It gets better the drones are used to let you […]
When I was a kid, I begged my mother to let me take horseback riding lessons. After some tearful pleading (mine, not hers), she finally relented.

I remember the first time that I thought I had found my photographic style. I was so excited! It had an airy-bright, yet film-y look. This was in my early, Lightroom-only days. It was this photo that I thought was a breakthrough:
