This year while exploring Hawaii islands I've done another thing on my bucket list - jumping with a parachute or skydive. This was something that I wanted to do for a long time. I guess I'm just the kind of person who wants to try as much as possible in life. Before that I've tried paragliding,bungee jumping and all other this kind of fun. So skydiving was the last thing I haven't tried. There are many places in the world to try it. The closest to Riga is I think Kaunas in Lithuania. But since I was flying to Hawaii and as it turned out there was an opportunity to skydive as well I've decided why not to do it in one of the most beautiful places in the world?
So why am I writing this? As it turned out when I posted one photo on Facebook I received a huge amount of different questions and amusement. I didn't expect people to be so interested in this event so I've decided to describe the experience of this adventure.

Not so long ago I found some series about Steven Frayne or how people call him - Dynamo - an English magician. At first I was quite sceptical, since I've seen many of these magician shows and they were nothing special. But this time I saw something different. I was surprised to see so many celebrities hanging out with him and really enjoyed his tricks - Will Smith, Prince Charles, Richard Branson, Rihanna, Tinie Tempah - all of them were just crazy about him. So I got curious what could it be about him so cool that so many people like.
Dynamo brought magic on the streets among different people and countries all over the world. And the most important thing is that he didn't intend to fool people, but to impress them. And I have to admit he really did.

That's right! Adobe has recently announced a new Photoshop version - Photoshop CC which stands for Creative Cloud. It seems like the previous version CS6 hasn't been among us that long. In fact I was still using CS5 when I found out about the new CC. So what the hell I thought to myself, lets try it out.
First things first. How do I get it. Creative Cloud means that now Photoshop has moved to the cloud and changed its policy. From now on you can't really own a Photoshop - now this is a rental service at about 19.99$ a month. I'm not sure that everybody is going to like that. But still there's a trial version available to try this new product.
