The Snow and The Slush

I tried some action shots of my pickup futsal game last night but wasn’t pleased with the results, so I’m hoping to try again next week. I’ll keep you posted. Tonight, I took a photo of my shoe after I ran through the mess that is making up the streets now that the temperatures have started to rise.  I also used the Vignette feature to post the weather.


Why Does Everyone Keep Taking My Picture?

One thing I find with Glass is I get a lot of pictures of myself.  No, they aren’t selfies. Nearly everyone that wants to try out Glass wants to take a picture. Since they are usually look directly at me, they take my picture.  The featured image today I wanted to record a student using Glass and she took a photo of my video recording her. Very meta…

Below a put a few other fun pictures students have taken while testing out Glass.




Foggy Glass and Sidewalk Running

Well, thank to Butler University clearing their sidewalks, I was able to get out for run today without spending too much time in the street.  One problem I had with Glass today was the lens kept fogging over. With the combination of body heat, cold air, me breathing, whatever, I had to continually wipe the lens with my glove to see it.  Then I’d have to re-adjust its position. I return to school tomorrow (weather permitting) and I’ll be able to start using glass for more than just pictures of snow.

Snowy Hike and Video

Today, we got 11 inches of snow.  Since I couldn’t leave my house in a vehicle, I went for a walk in nearby Holcomb Gardens on the campus of Butler University. I took some photographs.  The touch slider on Glass doesn’t work with gloves similar to a touchscreen, so I needed to take my glove off each time I needed to use it. I was also wearing a sock hat and occasionally it would prevent the touch slider from working. I had to push it up over the ear to get that to work. I took a short video just to demonstrate the video quality.  The default is 10 seconds, so that’s what I did. You have to touch the temple to get an option to extend the video, then touch the temple again to allow it to record indefinitely until you touch it again to stop. It would be nice to have a voice activated stop feature (but I guess then that would be recorded).

Make Vignette and Auto Awesome

I tried out two features of Glass today.  Well, one feature of Glass and one of Google+. I wanted to try the Vignette option on Glass. I found these sledders when I went to take some sunset photos.  The sun is setting over Hinkle Fieldhouse on the Butler University campus.  The sledders are hidden a bit by the glare.  That is the picture above. The Vignette feature adds whatever card you are seeing when you take the photo to be overlayed onto the photo. I enjoy using InstaWeather on my phone, so I used the weather card on this photo.

The picture below is a great feature of Google+ called Auto Awesome. It looks at your photo and makes suggestions how it could make it better.  This one chose to add snow falling into the image.
