Cinematographers with Spellbinding Instagram Accounts

I’ll be honest. A website that licenses music wasn’t where I would have expected to find a blog post about cinematography. But I’m catholic (small “c”, in this case), so I don’t really care where awesome comes from, just as long as I find it. In that vein, I can confirm that this blog post from Premium [Read More…]

Finding Peace at the End of the World

The headlines have me down a bit today. Not because they’re new and/or unexpected, but because they’re the exact opposite. So when a Laughing Squid headline flitted across my screen that promised something both “Stunning” and “Incredibly Serene,” I thought “That’s just what I’m looking for.” (The fact that it also said “Antarctica” was just a [Read More…]

Using the Next Five Seconds to Make Your Internet World a Bit More Beautiful

I spend a lot of time on the InterWebs. A frightening amount of time, really. And the vast majority of that time — almost 100% — is spent in Chrome. With somewhere between 100 and 1,000,000 tabs open at once. (I’m exaggerating. But only slightly.) Yes, it can be a bit mind-numbing. (Or in my case, “mind”-numbing.) [Read More…]

Vietnamese Cave + DJI Phantom 2 Drone = Stunning Video

Full-Screen and HD and take it away! Stunning. The location is Hang Sơn Đoòng (“Mountain River Cave”) in Vietnam, and the short’s creator is Ryan Deboodt. And with a bit of help from Laughing Squid, the two of ’em pretty much made my Sunday. Attribution(s): “Generic Vietnamese Cave” provided by Shutterstock. Although it’s hard to call anything as [Read More…]

Ol’ Man Willow’s Got a Brand New Coat

So, it didn’t exactly snow last night. But I’m not sure it rimed, either. Or hoarfrosted, because there wasn’t much in the way of ice. It was more like feathering. But whatever it did, it was gorgeous. Attribution(s): Me. [Read more…]

#catchingcorners Is Gorgeous

His name’s Zhenya Aerohockey. He’s a Siberian photographer from Saint Petersburg. And his Instagram project named #catchingcorners is amazing. Instagram project #catchingcorners is an extraordinary view on ordinary things. It was started as an entertainment, a way to train imagination and look around more. That’s a little abstract, so here’s a sampling: A photo posted by Zhenya Aerohockey (@aerohockey) on Oct [Read More…]

Who Needs Words, Anyway?

You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, this one feels like it’s worth more than a thousand, to me. Way more. (Priceless, really. Just stunning.) Via “National Geographic’s” Photo of the Day (almost exactly one year ago): Trees stand like guardians at the top of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South [Read More…]

I Absolutely Love This Picture

Life feels like it’s going about a thousand miles an hour right how, so I’m just tryin’ to hang’ on. And you, dear readers, are bearing the brunt of my survivalist tendencies, because I struggle to come up with compelling content in the best of circumstances. So, here. An amazing image that both sort-of-captures what my [Read More…]

“Beauty That Exists in the Most Minute Things”

Macro photography is sort of like slow-mo in movies. Technically demanding and sometimes overused — Yes, I’ve abused the Micro setting on my Canon pretty badly in the past, if you must know — but capable of showing you things otherwise impossible to see and wonderful when used appropriately. Take these images from photographer Alejandro Ferrer [Read More…]
