When you take a screenshot of a webpage in iOS 17, you get to choose between Screen and Full Page. Neat!

Oh, wow, what a badass move! Bill Willingham gets fed up with DC Comics and sends Fables into the public domain. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

I misremembered and thought today’s prompt was sculpture, not statue. What a fail. So no guessing this time. This is John Bauermonumentet. Sculpted by Karl HultstrΓΆm in 1931 and photographed by this fellow human today, during a stroll through the city park. πŸ‘Έ

A close-up of the John Bauer monument reveals an impressive granite masterpiece. Princess Tuvstarr gracefully sits on her knees, facing a troll.

I’m taking Apple’s Self Service Repair for a spin. (I’ve sourced parts and service manuals in… less official ways in the past.) The experience is okay so far, except that they reserved 16,543.32 kr (roughly $1,482) on my debit card should I take the rented tools and run. 🫠 So, it’s not for everyone.

Keep in mind that for some, it’s still hump day! 😊 Here’s my entry for day 13 and the prompt glow. Is it produced by wetware πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or software πŸ€–?

A delicate white dandelion is encased within a crystal-clear globe on a table. A sliver of sunlight shines upon it, making it radiate with a mesmerizing glow.

Karin af Klintberg’s latest film, Kungen, features an extraordinary synthy and organic soundtrack by Katharina Nuttall. Kinda reminds me of the score from The White Lotus. Well worth a listen on YouTube. 🎡

For day 12, the prompt is panic. Would you bolt if you saw this shadow? And was it captured by me πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or dreamed up by a text-to-image model πŸ€–?

We made apple pie for today’s commercial special event! πŸ˜‹

Tonight, I enjoyed a cold beer in the evening sun on our balcony. So in retrospect, getting those cans of Okinawa-style lager from teenage engineering was a good call. But, is this a photo I took πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or the creation of a text-to-image model πŸ€–?

Crisp, golden lager shimmers in a glass on a wooden table.

Let’s break the cycle for day ten. Here’s a throwback of me riding a bike in the summer of ‘93. Captured by good ol’ dad. Definitely human.

I know my way around a few languages – programming ones, that is. Like assembly language for the classic Sharp LR35902 (the CPU of the original Game Boy). But here’s a question for you: did I πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ take this pic of the handheld, or was it cooked up by a text-to-image model πŸ€–?

A Game Boy against a purpureus background. It looks like it was shot in a studio. The handheld is turned off.

I love this initiative from Kagi (the ad-free, paid search engine)! They now bump up relevant results from the small web, like blogs and personal websites. And there’s a fun way to stumble upon new sites. A great companion to Marginalia Search. Yay for all efforts to humanize the web!

Kagi Small Web offers a fresh approach by promoting recently published content from the “small web.” We gather new content, published within the last week, from a handpicked list of blogs and surface it in multiple ways[.]

One week of the photoblogging challenge already! Is this panorama captured by a human πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or dreamed up by a text-to-image model πŸ€–?

Here’s the website with a teaser for Hayao Miyazaki’s next film,Β The Boy and the Heron.

Still frame from an anime. A boy stands on a field in front of a house. Leaves are carried by the wind. The boy wears a band-aid on his forehead. Large white type says: The Boy and the Heron – a Hayao Miyazaki film – official teaser.

All isΒ well in this realm, but dream πŸ€– or reality πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ, can you tell?

Fellow microbloggers, I’m sorry I lied. Two out of my five challenge entries so far were generated by a diffusion model. Β A couple identified the dreamed-up sunset.Β No one (!) suspected the fake clouds.

The rest was shot by me. Thanks, everyone, for participating so far. Keep the guesses coming! 😊

It’s day four already, the prompt is orange, and you know the drill by now: was this pic snapped by me πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or dreamed up by a text-to-image model πŸ€–?

As the sun dips below the horizon, the sky erupts in a symphony of hues: the soft blush of coral, a radiant sunglow, and the fiery intensity of burnt orange. Against this backdrop, the blackened silhouettes of trees stand sentinel, casting their reflections onto the calm water below.

This potholder might look ordinary, but it is very precious to me. Or maybe it doesn’t even exist. What do you think – is this pic snapped by me πŸ§”β€β™€οΈ or dreamed up by a text-to-image model πŸ€–?
