Photographs and gallery quick links

Post by ALOberhoulser » Tue Jan 03, 2012 11:07 pm

I just ran across this site - http://500px.com/ - it is full of some great photography collections. WARNING - there are some nudes within the galleries of individual photographers on the website.

This photo led me to the 500px site:

gizmodo article

But I thought this thread might serve as a place to share our own photos as well as those that we might find while surfing the web...

comments welcome...

around the world with just an iPhone 4S to capture photos
Photographer, Lisa Bettany is setting off on an around the world with just an iPhone 4S to capture photos for her first travel photography book. Inspired by the freedom and creativity of iPhoneography, Lisa is leaving her expensive professional camera gear at home for the adventure of a lifetime.
She's only on the first leg - in the far East - some amazing photos of Asian life & culture! 8)

NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory gallery!!

Image
A long, solar prominence that rotated into view almost two weeks ago finally became disorganized and broke away into space forming a nifty large loop as it did (Nov. 21-23, 2011). NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) watched in extreme ultraviolet light as the magnetic forces that tethered it in place gradually became unstable, the prominence began to crumble, and eventually lifted off. The Sun is becoming more active as it approaches the solar maximum expected in 2013.
WAY COOL!!

That Gallery of "abandonment & urban decay" is haunting, isn't it?

Reminded me of Campbell's quote - "The World's a mess" :!:

I just wanted to bump this post up because she has been travelling for another few weeks and the photos are just amazing (especially considering they are taken with the iPhone & edited in the Camera+ app).

Really great photos from a woman who seems to be appreciative of the opportunity and following her bliss :D

Hey Al.

The link you provided on this Artist is great. He really seems to be a very talented representation of what is happening in the " Visual Arts " now. I especially like his ability to connect with the viewer as though you were seeing through his eyes; suggestive of certain themes; yet leaving enough room for your own personal interpretation. The effect of combining the different technologies; mediums; and art forms; ( each complimenting the other ); is especially powerful. And along with his images he skillfully projects his subject matter in a way that evokes that kind of state of " asthetic arrest " Joe talks about in the Power of Myth. ( At least to me. ) It also seems to invite you outward and onward towards your own contemplation as well.

Thanks Al; Hauntingly beautiful! 8)
