A long time ago I set up a google alert https://www.google.co.uk/alerts which allows you to have a persistent google search running and it will ping you when it finds anything.
Of course the first thing that anyone puts in is their own name 😉
I get a lot of false positives as there are a lot of great “Ross Goodman”s out there but I got a ping last week that looked interesting : https://environmentjournal.online/articles/glasgow-to-host-un-climate-change-conference/
It’s about Glasgow so it’s not one of my foreign doppelgangers but what do I have to do with climate change? Turns out it’s:
I took this photo ages ago and it got picked up by WikiMedia under Creative Commons.
Just goes to show – it’s good to publish and give permission for folks to use your photos!
Which reminds me – I have completely changes my workflow and I need to get some photos uploaded !
One of those shots that was just taken at the right time!
I know there have not been a lot of posts recently but I have been doing a lot of learning and processing in Lightroom from my recent holiday.
I have just spotted an interesting bug / feature when creating panoramas.
I shoot in raw & jpg – both with the same resolution.
I have just had a couple of scenarios where, when I create the panorama from the raw files it creates OK. If I create from the jpg files it does not give me the full width.
It is not a size limit – I have created MUCH bigger panoramas than these.
I’m assuming it’s not a problem with the contents not merging as the raws worked but the JPGs didn’t.

Scott Firestone is a hobby photographer from Chicago who was recently selected as a finalist in the 2017 EyeEm Photography Awards, the largest photo contest in the world. We asked Scott to share a few words about his photography and the city he loves to photograph.
Another of my favourite photographers from Flickr – Thomas Hawk. He has a very eclectic style and rarely disappoints.
Another photography related gadget. Historically I used only my Nikon DSLR an in all the years I used it I never lost a lens cap.
Since switching to the Olympus Pen-F I have lost three lens caps in 6 months. Rather than continually buy new lens caps I went for a lens cap keeper. It detracts a bit from the looks of the camera, and I’m not keen on having the cap swinging around but ……
Basically there is a circular disk that is permanently stuck on your lens cap and an elasticated loop that you can attach to something. I have it attached to the camera strap loop but I suppose you could put it around your wrist etc (if you remember).
