The Photographer (c. 1850’s); Artist unknown
Dream of a Maid, by Kemal Kamil AKCA
Yesterday night while pouring down a couple of belgian beers with a friend of mine and talking about photo projects, this set came to my mind. I asked him if he knew them but he didn’t, so I thought about tracking them down. Although they are not new anymore, they are still a great photographic insight on the people that blog to us everyday.
This set of photos comes to us through the lens of blogger/photographer Gabriela Herman. Her take on the blogger influence to our daily lives is that they connect us, that they filter and generate content that brings us closer. As a blogger and photographer myself, I couldn’t agree more…
” By looking at connectivity in this digital age and the ways in which we live and spend our time, this series shows how from these dark corners, bloggers are adding value to and changing the way people interact in the world. “

Here on my first time visit to Crater Lake National Park, I wanted to leave with an image that I could look back on and remember the experience. I was with a friend taking pictures also, and before I took the picture, I called over to him and said, “Hey man, watch this!” With a laugh, I spread my arms out and fell backwards into the snow. A second later, the camera timer clicked the shutter and the long exposure began. After the shutter clicked back closed, I stayed on the ground for a good while staring up mesmerized by all the sparkling stars overhead.
Underwater Ink Photography by Alberto Seveso
Seveso’s silky plumes of technicolored magma that seems to flow up from vents in the ocean has a slightly more mundane explanation: the artist drops different colored inks into water and captures the velvety aftermath, though the results are just as stimulating.
