Small Steps Are Giant Leaps

Little AstronautLittle AstronautLIttle AstronautLittle Astronaut

This touching father-son photo project made my heart melt a bit: Aaron Sheldon documents his four year old son as he discovers the world wearing an astronaut helmet. The helmet symbolizing how astronauts are brave and face their fears, this little four year old braves and discovers the world astronaut style.

Sheldon is turning the series into a photo book. Get a copy by backing his Kickstarter.

Techies

Techies Project

Techies is a portrait project focused on sharing stories of tech employees in Silicon Valley. The projects covers subjects who tend to be underrepresented in the greater tech narrative. This includes (but is not limited to) women, people of color, folks over 50, LGBT, working parents, disabled, etc.

The project has two main goals: to show the outside world a more comprehensive picture of people who work in tech, and to bring a bit of attention to folks in the industry whose stories have never been heard, considered or celebrated. Helena Price believes storytelling is a powerful tool for social impact and positive change.

Totally impressed. And, I wish it will grow beyond Silicon Valley. Read the original post introducing the project over on Medium.

Lets Camera

LetsCamera

On vacation with friends? Lets Camera lets you automatically sync vacation photos within a group. (Switch your “wi-fi” mode on in the settings if you do not want to waste on your data plan. Once your phone is connected to the Internet, all photos will be synced.)

This is definitely a fun idea for a close circle of friends or at a party. But then also, oh, the awkward moment when you forget to turn sharing off…
