Tasty ABC - Delicious Alphabet - Russian ABCs in the Kitchen




In case you haven't run across the word before, "буква" is Russian for "letter". As in буква а, буква б, буква в...


This cartoon talking ABC cartoon video has words spelled out for each sample word. The YouTube channel that created this cartoon is full of videos for teaching Russian to Russian kids. It is definitely a good channel to subscribe to if you're new to learning Russian and want to increase your vocabulary watching images and hearing a native speaker.

This particular video is about 20 minutes long. If all you want to do is work on vocabulary, it might seem a little long. But, if you're still learning the Cyrillic alphabet the animation pauses give some time for typing along in Russian on Google Translate. Typing the words in translator is also helpful to see the definition of Russian foods and dishes that aren't common in the English speaking world.

"Развивающий мультфильм: Вкусная Азбука - Вкусный Алфавит, создан для малышей, с целью помочь детям выучить русский алфавит. Изучать буквы в этом развивающем мультфильме детям помогут знакомые продукты и еда. А так же мы надеемся, что красочные картинки еды поднимут аппетит малышам :)"

Extreme photo cropping

Update... the video has been removed since this post was first written...
The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.



Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…
