Want to take better digital photographs of rocks, cars, cities, people, nature, or just about anything? Well if you read some of the articles I do, you’d better have about $30,000 handy, because you’ll need about that much to cover the costs for all the cameras, equipment, and gear I often see for suggestions. That doesn’t help a lot of us that wish they could take better photographs but can really only invest—in terms of money AND time—to the level of a point-n-shoot digital camera.
If you don’t care to capture better photographs and are content with blurry, low-quality party pics, then I suggest you support my sponsors and then close this browser for I just saved you a few minutes of valuable time.

I thought I’d post it up though with the most recent earthquake in the Canterbury, New Zealand region in the news. [Lyttelton & Christchurch]. There are two versions. One is less robust and free; whereas, the other requires a little donation but has a little bit more capability.

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on how this program works because I think most of you can figure it out. It’s pretty intuitive and the onboard Help page is pretty easy. Again, it’s a novelty tool for those interested in looking at global earthquakes in different ways and quickly.
I do want to mention to the families of the victims of the most recent earthquakes in Canterbury: The world is there with you at least in spirit. Many . . . → Read More: Earthquake 3D Global Monitor
