Here comes the end – 2013

Shines

2013 I started a project called “52 Weeks Project”; every week I upload a photo.

I didn’t had a subject for that project, but now I think I have one “Journey, and Experiences”

Thank you 2013:

  • I traveled and went on insane adventures.
  • I met new people, and I made great memories.
  • I experienced.
  • I learnt a lot.
  • I read.
  • I’ve been taught several lessons.
  • I wrote more.
  • I improved my fitness level.
  • I challenged myself to improve, regarding health, work and knowledge.

And now, I strive to be BETTER.. So, Let’s all work on that.. that’s why 2014 is here! :-)

 

Anyways, Here is the link to my 52 Weeks Project on Flickr, Hope you enjoy it:

Wish you a Happy New Year; and Never stop shooting :)

52 Weekly Project – 2013

يوم واحد ونُرحّب بالسنه الجديدة! هل فكّرت ببدأ مشروع 365 مع بداية السنه الجديدة؟ (365 يوم = 365 صورة) :)

كوني مشغول، فقررت البدء بإذن الله بمشروع (صورة كل اسبوع) من السنه الجديده، ولمدة سنه كاملة – 52 اسبوع في السنه = 52 صورة في السنه

Is it the time to be creative? Well, there is no specific time for creativity. What you need is courage to unleash your imagination, therefore, create your own world and memories.

Hopefully, I’m going to start my 1st 52 Weeks Project this year, 2013.

52 Weeks = 52 Photos (a Photo per Week)

What are you waiting for? Comment if you are going to join; let’s see your photos :-)

 Here is my Project on flickr.

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Updating Canon 60D to the Latest Firmware v1.1.1

A new firmware update for Canon 60D has been released on June 19th, 2012 (firmware v1.1.1). Today I felt like updating my Canon. Let me start by providing the Links of where you can download the latest firmware for your Canon 60D “Firmware v1.1.1”.

Download Latest firmware:

 Firmware v1.1.1 6/19/12

Updating..

Choose the “Operating System” then click on “Firmware”, hit “EOS 60D/60Da Firmware Version 1.1.1 [Windows]” to start downloading it:

Format your memory card:

Using your Memory card reader copy the new firmware to your SD card.

Now put the SD card back to your Canon 60D, and follow the images:

Changes
Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes.
1. Fixes a phenomenon where the camera's serial number
that is displayed in the shooting information of the image
does not display the correct serial number. *1)
2. Corrects errors in the Greek, Italian, and Portuguese menu screens.

*1) If the camera's serial number is 2147483648 or higher
and the camera firmware is Version 1.1.0 or earlier,
the images captured with the camera will be affected
by the phenomenon listed in 1. above.
This phenomenon only affects the EOS 60D,
and does not affect the EOS 60Da.
Both of these cameras are equipped with the same firmware.  
To obtain the serial number correctly in the
shooting information of images that are already captured
using the old firmware, we are preparing updates
for Digital Photo Professional and ZoomBrowser
EX / ImageBrowser applications.
Once the software updates are ready, we will make an announcement on our Web site.

Firmware Version 1.1.1 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.1.0.
If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.1.1,
it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Enjoy the new firmware :-)

New Layout, New Updates!

Once I started Photography I thought of creating a photo-blog where I can share my photos with the whole world. I started by using “YAPB plugin” for wordpress for almost 3 years! Even though it was awesome for photo-blogging; it was bad in some other ways (e.g. doesn’t support blog posts, lack of themes, somehow hard to modify).

Then a friend on Twitter shared a free theme created by Photographic Blog that is based on HTML5, and it works for either blogging a photo or a post! I was really happy for this found!

So, on March, 5th I started implementing this theme on my wordpress. It took so much time, because I needed to delete old photo-posts that “YAPB plugin” created, and re-uploading the photos to be used in this brand new theme.

Now it is going to be easy for you to view either my Photostream or my Blog :)
