Cách đây vài tuần, không khí Tết đã rộn ràng (ở nhà). Trên Facebook ai nấy cũng vài ba tấm hình kể chuyện chuẩn bị mua hoa, gói bánh -- nào là ở xa được bạn tặng mứt, nào là ở nhà cả xóm lên đèn. Cũng gần cả tháng rồi tôi chưa gọi về cho mẹ. Nghe đến đây hẳn đã nhiều người chê trách, nhưng mấy ai hiểu đấy là kiểu nhà tôi nó thế. Lúc nào chị nhà cũng lu bu trăm chuyện, đến hồi rảnh rỗi ngồi xuống nhấn nút gọi con tôi mới lại được tám chuyện vài ba câu. Tết đến, chị mẹ lại càng bận bịu quét trên nhà, lau dưới bếp. Một ngày ra chợ ba bốn bận. Hôm qua tôi gọi chị còn đang ở ngoài đường, hối hả bảo để mẹ về lấy máy lên facetime. Được đôi ba phút lại vội vội vàng vàng bảo mẹ đi chợ đã, về mẹ gọi. Đã thế đến khuya vẫn chưa thấy mẹ đâu, chắc lại còn ở chợ.

If you're looking for a perfect location for a day trip from Boston, Provincetown is definitely one of the top destinations to check out. Located at the extreme tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is as far out as you can travel. Named one of America's Quirkiest Towns, it is home to a variety of interesting shops and colorful streets. It's also very well-known for its LGBT friendliness. People here are dang proud of their communities and you can't quite miss that once you're here.

I'm a sucker for beautiful, clean workspace with lots of bright natural light and green. It's so important that we love our desks and our work areas because most likely, it's where we spend hours working every day. For me personally, a well designed workspace can often be the source of motivation and it helps to get (and keep) my creative juice flowing.
For an ideal workspace, I love white furnitures on white walls with a balance among monochrome accessories, then lighten it all up with lots of green to create a minimalistic, dreamy, and nature-friendly atmosphere. I know I can't go entirely minimal on decorating (it's hard to be a stuff worm), so the space will be more of an organized mess.

"Travel while you’re young and able. Don’t worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be."
- Unknown

Many of us love to travel and our bucket list keeps growing. We plan trips after trips, save money to go even on a short journey; we crave for more and we go more. Whether you're the spontaneous kind of travelers or the detailed-oriented-super-organized ones, you've got to face some amount of trip planning. It's hard to book an airplane ticket to Thailand then hop on without knowing what's there to expect on the other side of the planet.

Paris at night edited with free curve

ENG
A new addition to our FREE Photoshop curve collection is here!
At first, I wanted to create a curve that worked specifically for the night life – something with a purple/ blue tone that can help to add a little pop to your photos. Turned out, this guy works quite well with day time photos. I tested it out with some stuff I had from Europe and it works wonder!

One white building. Four human beings. Endless inspiration.

You must have met these guys when I shared a photo journal of our summer meet here. As the tradition continued (or as we'd always joked, "It's time to update our profile picture"), last fall we met at JFK Library in near Quincy to catch up. What are there at a library to photograph? Turned out, this place is incredibly inspiring by itself with big white-painted walls. It's situated on the tip of the Columbia Point Peninsula overlooking the entrance to Boston Harbor so it's got a great view as well. Drawn to clean and minimalistic environment, we spent the entire afternoon here exploring and collaborating on new images.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8+ Review

Despite the fact that I use my digital cameras more often than most, I'm an avid analog lover and really have a thing for analog cameras. My first analog baby was $20 Polaroid 600 instant camera. When I bought it, little did I know that Polaroid already stopped producing film packs for this product line, leaving me with no options to use it. I ended up using it once, after discovering that an old camera store in town had it for $30/ 10-sheet pack. Yup! One single photo costed $3 – A little too much, isn't it?
