I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Picture of the Week. I shot a little video of how I took the shot and then how I edited it in Adobe’s Lightroom mobile app. There’s some new functionality in the Lightroom app which allows you to edit RAW images, which is wonderful for people like me who like editing and posting on the go. It requires (at least for my iPhone) an SD card adapter, which you can buy from Apple.
This will be mainly for you photographers who like utilizing your own workflow instead of using Instagram or Facebook filters, but hopefully you appreciate the demo either way!

Hello everyone! I was just out in Deep Ellum, just east of downtown Dallas, Texas, taking this picture. Deep Ellum is an arts district that has recently undergone a nice revitalization but has maintained its gritty roots. In Deep Ellum you’ll find great restaurants, concert venues, and wonderful art installations and graffiti walls. Two statues buttress the entrance to Deep Ellum when heading south on Good Latimer Expressway. These status are of the same character: the Traveling Man. The DART train runs down the middle of Good Latimer Expressway and the Traveling Man relaxes across the street from the tracks, playing his guitar and waiting for his train.
I’ve always meant to take a picture of the Traveling Man and finally made time to do it tonight. As part of shooting the picture I also came up with a challenge: edit the Picture of the Week entirely on my iPhone using Adobe Lightroom Mobile’s new RAW editing capabilities. Without getting too lost in the weeds, this enables me to edit RAW images to the level of quality I would normally only achieve when back home or at the hotel with the full Adobe Lightroom version on my various Macs. In fact, I put together a little video about the challenge, so stay tuned for that!
Anyway, here it is, Deep Ellum’s Traveling Man! (click through for the picture!)
From time to time I’ll review some travel products here on the blog, like my review of the Looptworks Messenger Bag. I try to only review things that are high-quality and directly applicable to me as a traveler, and this one was a doozy. A company reached out to me with a big claim: they made the best travel pants. in the world.
