Mobile Photo Challenge :BnW ( Museum of Pop Culture) And More…

Below is the original photo of the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle.

The Museum of Pop Culture is dedicated to contemporary popular culture. It was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2000 as the Experience Music Project.

The structure itself was designed by Frank Gehry, and resembles many of his firm’s other works in its sheet-metal construction, such as Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Gehry Tower.                         — Wikipedia

Sally D’s Mobile Photo Challenge for this week is Black and White.

The Future Of TV Is Here. Can Cable Survive? by Greg Satell

This is how “the future of TVis here” is working:

  • Every major manufacturer now offers “smart TV’s” that can access the Internet directly and a host of streaming devices, such as RokuAmazon Fire and Apple TV, just to name a few.

    Yahoo recently announced that they have acquired the digital rights to stream a NFL game this year.  Google, which owns YouTube and has two steaming devices on the market, Chromecast and Nexus Player, has already rolled out its Google Fiber service in five cities, with more on the way.

He concluded, “…However, the cable business, as we have come to know it, will soon be a thing of the past.”

Have you switched to Smart TV? Would you consider it?

I don’t have Amazon Fire and Apple TV yet for 4K smart TV, but am enjoying the wide availability of access. I have to keep reminding myself it’s a smart TV, not a large screen of computer.

Thank you for visiting! 🙂

  1. So many paces to visit so little time (and money I’m afraid). Smart TV – my personal opinion – it limits your time to travel to places for photo opportunities or around the world via blogs

  2. Amy, your capture is an example of the differences that can be interpreted in color and b&w. In monochrome the edges of his design seem like sprays from a fountain. I do prefer the b & w. It gives it another character and yet retains his vision. Happy Photo Challenge.

  4. I like both, Amy, but in the B&W, the sweep of the building in the background is more subtle, which I think works well. I don’t really know much about the TV situation. We just have basic cable, but we’ll see how things go. I’d like the ability to pick the channels we want and only pay for those.

  5. We have so many Smart TV devices and streaming services– and almost no time to enjoy them. Sometimes I’d like to turn the clock back and perhaps I will! I find so many options a little overwhelming and we really could disconnect!

    • We try to keep it simple, no devices (not yet). 🙂 But I like the option of choosing what we want to watch instead of paying for a bundle package to the cable that we don’t watch 99.9% of the deal…
      Thank you so much for commenting, Debra!

    • Thank you, Gilly. I only took a few photos of this unique building, really had a hard time to decide the angles to photograph it. I’ll try to post them next week. 🙂

    • This building is quite unique. It was very challenging for me to find a angle to photography. I may post a few next week. 🙂 Thank you for giving me feedback, Reinhold. 🙂
