David Beckham Enjoys Some Sweet Father-Son Bonding With Romeo at a Tennis Match

Fresh off his "inspiring" visit to Africa with UNICEF, David Beckham attended the Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club in London on Tuesday with his adorable son Romeo in tow. The pair was all smiles as they attentively took in the tennis match between Stan Warinka and Fernando Verdasco in the stands, and at one point, Romeo was seen adorably whispering something in David's ear. Just two days prior, the father-son duo were spotted at the venue hanging out with tennis pros Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray. Romeo even got to practice his swing and hit a few balls with Andy before the tournament. Noticeably missing from the fun was the rest of the Beckham clan, though Victoria has been hard at work promoting her sunglasses line while Brooklyn has been improving his photography skills. Read on for more cute photos, then check out the family's sweetest moments through the years.


Drone photos make the best phone wallpapers

It's standard to put pictures of dogs, spouses or (your own) children as wallpaper on your phone. But that's uninspired. You know what's different? Taking carefully-curated landscape drone photography and setting that as the backdrop to life instead. Gabriel Scanu is a photographer who works mostly in Sydney and Los Angeles. He specializes in taking aerial images with drones, turning uninspiring strips of road or forest into something quite beautiful. DON'T MISS:  6 things Apple needs to get right with iOS 10  A  Fubiz  feature on Scanu caught my attention, because the top-down landscape imagery reminds me of artists who have carefully curated Google Earth images to make stunning smartphone wallpapers. I think with a little work, Scanu's photos could do the same. If you flick through his Instagram feed , it's more than just top-down landscape imagery. There's all sorts of photos, from night-time shots of the Matterhorn to surfers in South Africa. But there's something about straight-down drone photos that really captures my imagination. Scanu has at least one from every trip he's taken. Quite often, they show a road cutting through a pristine forest; other times, it's boats above a shallow sea, with all the fishes visible in the clear blue water below. Turning any of these into a kick-ass phone background is pretty simple: all of Scanu's images are on his Instagram, and iOS and Android will help you crop (just a little) to the correct aspect ratio for your device. Just remember to be honest about telling your friends where you found all the neat pictures when they ask. (
