There’s nothing like an amazing animated GIF to make you smile. In this brilliant GIF series by Nicolas Ritter, your mind might fool you into thinking you’re looking at pictures, but when you catch the single person moving you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Appropriately titled “One”, Ritter’s animated photos bring all of your attention to the actions of a single human being in a crowd. It’s like a grown up version of Where’s Waldo! set on the streets of London. [Read more...]
Vintage camera collector Chris Hugues was picking up another camera to add to his 300 plus collection. To his surprise, he found two packages of slides in the worn leather case. Taking a close look he found that the slides were taken by a French soldier from WWI. There were some photos of battle and unique images of the time period. Thus began a journey to “hunt” vintage cameras with undeveloped film still in the case or camera. [Read more...]
Robin Williams has said that “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” It’s a time when flowers are starting to bloom, the days are getting longer, and you actually want to be outside! After trudging through crazy winters my whole life, growing up with lake effect snow in Cleveland, then sloshing through the grey puddles in NYC for 5 years, I was always delighted at every sign of Spring. I didn’t think I would experience that in California, but I was wrong. Though the Winters here are much milder, I am so happy that Spring is finally here and I love seeing the blossoming trees and chirping birds everywhere! [Read more...]
While I will argue that not only hipsters take pictures of their food, I agree that this habit is getting a little out of hand. In fact, there is entire Tumblr called Pictures of Hipsters Taking Pictures of Food dedicated to this strange phenomenon. Although I’m guilty of taking some food pics at restaurants here and there, looking back at them is never really thrilling, so it seems the only purpose of taking pictures of food is to show your friends what you’re eating which seems like a waste of time. I’m starting to miss the days when I had no idea what my friends from high school were eating for each meal, before I knew about every baby milestone of people I haven’t spoken to in years and probably never will again.

Most children have big dreams. Maybe they want to meet their favorite athlete or go to Disney Land or be a princess. But 12 year old Luka dreams of doing things that most children take for granted- basic things like walking, getting dressed, and feeding himself. Luka was born with the degenerative disease muscular dystrophy and has just enough control of movements in his hands to operate his electric wheelchair and hold a pen in his hand to draw. Slovenian photographer Matej Peljhan helped Luka’s dreams come true through this fun photography project. Rather than working some photoshop magic, he used real props to make Luka look like he was break dancing, skateboarding, swimming, shooting hoops, walking up stairs, and flying away with a red balloon!

It’s not very often that you get to purchase a famous artists work at a bargain price. Most of the time those are the stories we here about in the news: “Picasso purchased for $26 at yard sale – new owner as surprised as the world.” The long running RCA Secret offers you almost the same chance. The annual sale, hosted by London’s Royal College of Arts, featured 2700 postcard sized artworks this year, some from students, others from often famous invited guests. The catch? The name of the artist is only revealed after you buy the piece. So, can you spot a Paula Rego at 20 paces? [Read more...]
I thought I was pretty cool for getting a shot of a mother and baby rhino from an elephant’s back in Chitwan Jungle when I visited Nepal until I saw the amazing photography of Mario Moreno. His wildlife images are absolutely stunning and he gets dangerously close to animals that would make me drop my camera! The selection here shows his brilliant command of photography at dusk, capturing the most perfect silhouettes of some of the most gorgeous animals on the planet.

One day he had the idea to rigg up his Chevy Silverado truck with his camera gear and while driving, be able to click and shoot his unbeknownst subjects. He titled the project “Passenger Side Window.” [Read more...]
