This is not photography related, but it doesn’t matter. I decided to do a little (big) experiment. It is the Google. I realized I am too dependent on Google services. Actually, when on Internet, I mostly live in Google world. Google is everywhere. I made a little research of my Internet behavior and found out that I am actively using 17 services/products from Google.
Here is the list:
They are great services and products. That’s why I have been using them. Suddenly I realized how much information Google corporation is collecting about me and my life. Google knows what I shop, what I do, what I listen and watch. Google knows what I search and what my interest are. Google probably knows what I think before my thought arises in my head. Well, I decided to try to stop using Google services and see if it is manageable. I know it sounds wild. I already started with this and so far I am doing fine.
All of the products and services has it’s alternatives. For example, instead of Google search I started to seek information with DuckDuckGo search engine. It doesn’t keep track of my search history. And yes, I was actually able to find what I needed! What a surprise! So I have replaced most of the services. Well, I still have a phone with Android OS, which I will keep, of course. And I didn’t delete my Gmail account, because I used this email to sign up to tons of on-line services and need to be able to retrieve passwords in the future. So, I will keep it as a secondary and passive E-mail account.
This is was also the reason why I switched back to WordPress. Blogger is okay. Nothing wrong. Especially, when it comes to storage capacity, it exceeds WordPress. On the other hand there is no real huge reason why to stick with this platform. Export from Blogger. Import to WP. Done. Transfer of all my posts with photos was really easy.
On the Venceslas Square….
Paper girl. Paper was for free. I grabbed one.
Gypsy boy hanging out.
This is a Rock Stand.
In the metro.
Prague main train station. I was waiting for a train. It had 30 minutes delay and I was making some photos.
His beard…and stare.
Yep, I am photographing you…
Bag typical for 90’s. But still used by people. Cheap and takes a lot of stuff.
I already recognize some of these guys as I have been shooting there before…
We like to go to ZOO. In winter time I prefer to stay out of heated pavilions, because my eye glasses and my camera gets hazy. I was waiting in front of the pavilion with elephants. Playing with blur. This was actually on Christmas Eve.
