Friday Fotos: Evening light

The golden hour …

Close to home — A winter evening in Summit County, Colorado.

FRISCO —Another great #FriFotos theme that’s right up my alley, because there’s nothing I like better than getting out and about during that magical evening hour when even the most mundane scene can come alive with an otherworldly glow. In fact, shooting in the evening is a bit of an obsession that sometimes means my family doesn’t get dinner until quite late, especially in the summer, when sunset is late to begin with. But Leigh and Dylan tolerate, and even encourage me, which means I’ve had the chance to get some pretty amazing shots. I’m looking forward to seeing evening scenes from around the world streaming on Twitter and Instagram today, and you can join in the fun by uploading your own evening pics and tagging them with #FriFotos — then, sit back and enjoy the show.

FRISCO —This week’s edition of the popular Twitter chat #FriFotos is all about views, so I combed the archives for some my favorites, both near and far. As a photographer, I’m always looking for views, or for an opportunity to make a view. Sometimes, all it takes is a few steps in one direction or another; other times, it requires a total reset, unless you don’t mind a bunch of powerlines interfering with the vista. As always, I’m looking forward to seeing views from around the world. Join in the fun by picking your own favorite views, tagging them with the #FriFotos hashtag and uploading to Twitter via your favorite channel.

Breckenridge, Colorado.

By Summit Voice

SUMMIT COUNTY — When Breckenridge planners, elected officials and residents set out to map a sustainable vision for their town, they had more questions than answers.

What will Breckenridge look like in 20 years?  Will traffic congestion double?  Will fewer “locals” live in Breck?  Will the ski season shorten?

Now, after months of brainstorming, surveys and meetings, the community is ready to lay out some of the answers at the Sept. 15  SustainableBreck wrap-up session (6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Beaver Run). Continue reading “Breckenridge ready to unveil sustainability plan”

New website could offer online social networks with fewer privacy concerns

By Summit Voice

SUMMIT COUNTY — As the controversy over Facebook‘s new tagging feature grows, an Eagle-based software developer thinks he might have an answer for people who want to control the privacy of their online social networks.

Paul Kulas, a 20-year veteran of computer programming and software design, says online communications should be moving toward more privacy, not less. That’s why he’s putting blood, sweat and tears into developing zeldaB. Designed from the ground up to protect our privacy, the new website allows users to share thoughts, information, photos and video without the “gotcha” that comes automatically with other online communities. Watch a short video interview with Kulas here.

“We’re not trying to replace other networks like Facebook, Twitter and Google,” Kulas said. “But … zeldaB is a different class of social networking,” he added. Continue reading “Colorado software expert working on Facebook alternative”
