Interesting little things…
A five-year drought in California ended spectacularly this winter, with the state emerging from one of its driest periods on record by enduring one of its wettest. Reservoirs, lakes, and mountainsides are now brimming with water and snow, though scientists caution that the unseen reservoirs—underground aquifers—are a long way from having the same bounty that is visible on the land surface.

Before I did my googling and math, I couldn’t believe it but here it is: Shanghai has added as much land as 10 Manhattans over the past couple of decades. Here are some satellite images as witness:
The number of people living in Shanghai is not the only thing about the city that has increased dramatically since the 1980s. The amount of land available to its residents has grown as well. By building seawalls just off the coast to capture outflowing sediment, and by using dredging equipment that sucks up and moves large volumes of sand, Shanghai has added well over 580 square kilometers (220 square miles) of land to its shorelines since 1985.

A work in progress, an ocean of inspiration still to be filled:
Here’s one page to view all the Super Bowl LI’s commercials without needing to keep hitting a play button (may have to go through other ads tho). Here’s my favorite, the most powerful storytelling in one short video, wordless and (and making 8+ million YouTube viewers and counting) speechless:
Having worked with images for over ten years, I feel even stronger that telling a good story with imagery is no easy job, even though technology is getting cheaper and more readily available. The world is, indeed, noisier, and people’s attention is one of the most precious resources of our time. Capturing that attention takes hard work and craftsmanship.
