Total strangers can touch, too.

From Very Short List

Richard Renaldi spent the year asking total strangers to touch. Then he took their photos.

I think the result is pretty interesting, and certainly made me pause for a couple moments between work projects.

The Gap has nothin’ on individuality.

conformity

Photographer Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek made the observation that in an attempt to dress as an individual, the general population of the city’s youth ended up dressing exactly the same. This site is dedicated to proving this astute observation by photographing individuals and grouping them visually on the site for comparison. See for yourself.

Animal photos that will catch your eye.

This “Sulawesi black-crested macaque” doesn’t even look real to me. Thoughts?

I won’t bore you with the repetition of paraphrasing this article, but go to Lifehacker at this link and read up about how to expand the capability of your simple point-and-shoot camera. A little more info:

“With the help of a free, open source project called CHDK, you can get features like RAW shooting mode, live RGB histograms, motion-detection, time-lapse, and even games on your existing camera.”

A Wednesday fantasy…the world’s largest pool.

“The man-made saltwater lagoon has been attracting huge crowds to the San Alfonso del Mar resort at Algarrobo, on Chile ‘s southern coast, since it opened last month. It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water.”

Hump-it-out.

30 Apr

Hump DayBusy day folks! I went from producing a Spanish ad for a Latin NYC paper, to rushing around Chelsea trying to find a embroiderer/seamstress to make a custom patch for a pro-Boxer, to depositing my tax return and Vespa Sale money! (jello Trip fund for me!)–and finally on to more elusive plans that I cannot tell you about at this juncture–but know this, it will be great. Definitely defeated the boredom of hump day, and helped release the doldrum memories of yesterday. Now I am on to creating a webpage sample of photos of a sailing trips to be possibly used on a website/collateral for Shearwater Sailing.  

Then I want to go through my cousin Kori’s wedding photos to send them out to the fam. There are some great shots there and most of them contain family members that have not been together for several years.  It was a special time and almost served as a beautiful family reunion. My cousins are spectacular. Oh and can I say that Ashton Gardens is the most gorgeous wedding chapel I ever knew existed? Bravo Kori for the idea, it was transcendent. Harp music, sunlight, trees, flower petals, *tear.

Well-on to jump the B (or Q) home. Does any other New Yorker out there try to beat their commute time everyday? I am always in competition with the fastest commute time home, I can’t help it. It keeps things interesting for sure, I thought it was mostly a guy thing. The best time I have done is 35? Lets shoot for 34 today. Oh, and I’d love a seat, too.
