Link of the day - DOF simulator

cool FREE  Depth of Field simulator.
lets you change tons of stuff, and save your settings & send a link to others so they can see the same thing.

It's an online service, you can download it and run it offline in your browser & there's a phone version.

I guess it could be helpful planning shots before you go out in the field, but for me it mostly just fun to play with.

"Happy Holi" or I mean "Links of the day" ... or maybe "Recipe of the day"

First Happy Holi!
While taking a quick look at Holi celebrations there was a mention of drinks for the festival and from there I went to Bang and from there to Boza (then Kvass and a few others).

Boza, a fermented malt drink popular in the are of the former Ottoman empire. It's thick and sweet with an acidic taste ,  or so I've read and It's aften flavoured with cinamon etc.

Even though it's fermented it's considered a softdrink with only about 1% alcohol.
It's seems relatively easy to make and is ready in a day.

So sounds like it's worth a try.
