DJI just released a powerful new drone camera, but it’s not meant for you or me. No, the Zenmuse Z30—which Sweden probably won’t like one bit—is meant for industrial purposes, because it boasts a crazy 30x optical zoom lens that can deliver up to 180x zoom if you add digital zoom.
Nara Dreamland was a theme park in Japan that was built back in 1961 and inspired by Disneyland.

I’m old. Believe me, I know it. I’ll be 70 in a few months. That fact may make it hard for you to take me seriously, but bear with me for just this post. With age comes wisdom, right? What I want to write here is that I think the field of photography by those making art is changing in a disturbing way. Read on.

Every year, New York’s dog owners get together at Tompkins Square Park for a different kind of Halloween parade—instead of humans wearing costumes, this one is all about the best-dressed pooch.
