A set of photographs by Laura Letinsky


Today I’m going to show you a small selection from the works of a contemporary Canadian photographer, Laura Letinsky. Letinsky is best known for her poignant still lifes. Her photographs are narratives of ageing and loss; her subjects basking in the characteristic soft light and subtle tonal transitions.

Submission Successful


Well, here goes! A couple of days back we submitted Degradr to the App Store, having fulfilled our promise to do so by the end of May. Now the plan is to sit back, relax and wait for the app to be reviewed. After the review has gone through, Degradr will finally be available for download. Normally, the process takes 3 to 15 days; a week on average.

Cool stats:

  • it took us 4.5 months to create the first official Degradr release (preliminary research notwithstanding);
  • there were 181 beta versions of the app. Degradr 1.0 is, in fact, Degradr 182.

So now we wait. We will officially announce the launch of Degradr as soon as we hear back from Apple reviewers. Follow us on WordPress, Google+ or Facebook to be the first to download the app!

Mountain Half Marathon


Every time I’m going for a run, I don’t know when will start, wich way will choose and how many kilometers will overcome. My goal — to get pleasure from the process. The result is simply recorded as a fait accompli, but never do not aspire to it. At this time, I was drawn to the mountain because it is beautiful and nothing more. The result was a half marathon with a height difference of 1000 m. Below are a few photos from this run. All are made on Degradr via iPhone 6.
