I love looking at clouds, but nowadays there’s also another kind of cloud — the storage cloud. I have iCloud, Google Drive/Google Photos … there’s DropBox and I guess you could say Flickr is a cloud too. The most confusing of them all is Apple’s iCloud. It used to be very straightforward and nice, but something has changed. All the photos I took with the phone, during the run of a day, used to show up, magically, on my computer. I think they still do, but I don’t always know how to find them. It’s something so utterly complicated so I get that «boiling brain» syndrome again. If I turn on iPhotos or whatever on the computer, it tries to send all my photos to the iPhone (!!!).
Before, when I opened the ‘Finder’ [same as the File Manager in Windows], I used to be able to find my iPhone photos there, and I still do … at times. Like here, in WordPress, when I hit the upload button, then they show up, but not when I just try to go an look at them. I won’t go on about this … it’s too dizzying.
Here in Canada we have a magazine called MacLean’s, which is very similar to TIME magazine. We subscribe to it, and right now Apple has some kind of campaign: The back cover of the magazine is some beautiful photo and it says: «Shot with iPhone6». I sit there and gaze at those photos, thinking “I certainly haven’t put much effort into my iPhone photography! I own this beautiful phone and I don’t do much with it … just some silly snaps”. So the last, two days, I’ve tried to shape up.
It’s a good time for that, as all kinds of beautiful wildflowers are out now. Here’s a small gallery of my latest efforts [click to view].
