So tonight I learned that "web sharpening for Instagram" was a thing, and... it seems to work??? Dafuq is this hocus pocus. The engineer in me really hates it when things seem to work for no discernible reason, and I'm still trying to figure out if the increase in acutance is simply a result of downscaling and an extra sharpening pass, but the thing about engineers is that we also don't argue with results 🤣
Anyway. Capping off a productive Hari Raya weekend. Google #pixel3 Night Sight + RAW + Lightroom. The Pixel's camera stack has a mystical ability to shoot at almost base ISO even during blue hour (8pm in this case) without sacrificing target exposure and also without jacking up the exposure time, AND it manages this with a measly 1/2.55" sensor. Another bit of hocus pocus I don't understand at all - but, again, the "not arguing with results" thing #madebygoogle#teampixel

This 1980's Honda XL185s belongs to my Grandfather and has been well loved. It spends its life patrolling the prairies and pastures of Oklahoma.
It's almost the end of summer. Or maybe I am hallucinating because of the heat.
But no summer cannot end without the mango pickle.
This mango pickle made at home. Mustard powder chilly powder salt, garlic cloves and Fenugreek seeds. And of course raw mango pieces. It's easy to make once you figure out the measurements and super freaky about not contaminating it with moisture.
Andhra food and avakaya. These are emotions. The joy of eating home made pickle with hot rice and ghee is beyond comparison.
Staying at a hostel is the best way to manage your expenses when traveling on budget. Hostels are safe and economical alternative to hotels and provides a platform to interact with other budget backpackers.
Tourism industry including the hostel owners are the worst hit by the ongoing pandemic. I hope the situation improves and the industry get on it's feet as soon as possible. ♥️ #staysafestayhome @singhafamilia@hostelworld
