Reminder – Enter the Tomb Raider Xbox 360 Giveaway!
The first contest to win a branded Xbox 360 draws to a close on October 13. As extra incentive to participate we’ve got a shiny new image for you to drool over. The rules for the contest can be found below in case you’re in need of a refresher. We’ve even made it easier to enter by linking directly to the three questions you need to answer.
The Rules: To enter the competition, you’ll have to answer three Tomb Raider trivia questions. Each question will be revealed via a unique Tomb Raider social media outlet – Facebook, Twitter, and the Crystal Habit Podcast, respectively. Plug all three answers into tombraider.com/podcast and you’re in the running!
Housekeeping: You must be 18 to enter the contest. Also, please be aware that the branded Xbox 360 will take 6-7 weeks to arrive on your doorstep. Why the delay?

Additionally, the above design is a mockup and the final version may vary.

100 really great iPhone photography apps
Here it is—my list of the 100 best iPhoneography apps.
In writing my book, Create Great iPhone Photos, and then posting an app a day for my 100 Photo Apps project, I’ve spent a lot of time researching iPhone photography apps for everything from image editing to retro effects to panoramas. With the book, in particular, I did a lot of testing of apps, trying them out in all sorts of situations (just check out my video where I go body surfing with my iPhone), and I also researched what other iPhone photography enthusiasts were listing as their favorite, go-to apps.
Of course, iPhone photography just keeps getting better, thanks to the developers of apps like Hipstamatic, ShakeItPhoto, and many others, and so I hope to revise the list (or maybe come out with new versions) as other awesome apps are developed.
What’s missing in this list? View the comments for this post: Please post in the comments.
Also, I plan to post some additional lists, too, like my own top ten among these apps, and also lists for apps in various categories (black-and-white, replacement cameras, and so forth).
So here’s my take on the 100 best iPhone photography apps (in the order I posted them in my 100 Photo Apps project).

Caught in the rain
Hope you have a weekend full of surprising moments
This is a large scale model of a firefly made by the Exhibition Department many, many years ago. Denis shot this as a reference for a possible future use of the fireflies. This model, which used to light up, is about a 18 inches long. You can see a little bit of the old wire coming out of the back of the firefly where the power to the light was supplied.

Bastrop Cty., Texas, where wildfire has wrecked ~500 homes since Sunday, has seen population quadruple since 1970. (Figures from U.S. Census)
The dog was named Parrot. This was taken moments before Parrot was murdered by the cop. The cop drove his knee into the middle of Parrot’s back while stretching Parrot’s forelegs behind him, as one would do with an armed criminal. Without waiting to determine whether this technique would calm Parrot, the cop grabbed Parrot, lifted him off the ground, and brought him to the top of the concrete stai…rcase. He threw Parrot over the banister, down twelve steps, and onto the concrete floor. Then, the cop stood at the top of the stairs, drew his weapon, and executed Parrot. Aaron, the animal’s owner, cannot recall the number of shots fired. Witnesses state that Parrot was not harming anybody and was simply frightened by the cop.
Our youth started a peaceful movement… Our youth will burn the city’s. I’m thinking very hard times ahead for all of us. America is on the verge of self destruction. It’s things like this and what is happening in Oakland that make people loose objectivity and rage prevails…upward increasing RAGE!!! If that was my dog I’d be in jail right now awaiting sentencing for manslaughter.
KILL THIS FUCKING PIG! BURN HIS POLICE DEPARTMENT!

Preserved Transparent Animals by Iori Tomita
These see-through critters are preserved in jars and injected with amazing technicolor enzymes to make them all glow-y. Break it down, Science: “Tomita uses an enzyme to dissolve the natural proteins in the flesh. He then injects red dyes into the harder bones and blue dyes into the softer cartilage, thus highlighting usually unseen internal structures. The dead creature is then preserved in a jar of glycerin”. You can even buy miniature versions of these… in Japan.
