Photo of the Day: “Hello” by Rob Blanken

| PHOTO BY ROB BLANKEN, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO BY ROB BLANKEN, IS A BEAUTIFULLY, NATURALLY MONOCHROME. My favorite part of this photo is the color. I absolutely love the clean tan sea of plants, and it’s a bonus that it perfectly matches the fur of the deer. The depth of this photo is great, and I love that the composition features the peeking head of the deer in the perfect spot. Thanks, Rob Blanken!   Click here to see our other Photos of the...

Photo of the Day: “Golden Rays at Dawn” by dmoon1

Photo of the Day: “Golden Rays at Dawn” by dmoon1

| PHOTO BY DMOON1, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO, TAKEN AT SUNRISE BY DMOON1, IS A ALMOST OTHERWORLDLY. It’s so warm and orange it’s almost unbelievable, but if you’re in the right place at the right time, some places are actually this beautiful, and dmoon1 was the right photographer to capture it. I really love the perspective, too, looking at a bend in the road with trees quickly fading into the fog in the background. Thanks, dmoon1!   Click here to see our other Photos of the Day...

Photo of the Day: “l i g h t c a t c h e r” by RAWSIDE4RT

Photo of the Day: “l i g h t c a t c h e r” by RAWSIDE4RT

| PHOTO BY RAWSIDE4RT, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO OF A SANATORIUM BY RAWSIDE4RT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF ABANDONED PHOTOGRAPHY. Yep, that’s a whole genre of photography, and I love a good photo of an abandoned building, as long as it’s more cool than creepy. Light is a big part of that. The lighting captured in this photo is perfect. As its title suggests, the badminton net catches the light, adding a lot of depth to this photo. From my perspective, it gives the photo an optimistic element...
Photo of the Day: “Urban Series VI” by Minas Stratigos

Photo of the Day: “Urban Series VI” by Minas Stratigos

PHOTO BY MINAS STRATIGOS, FLICKR   THIS LONG-EXPOSURE PHOTO OF DOHA, QATAR BY MINAS STRATIGOS LOOKS LIKE CGI, in a good way.  I have no idea how Minas is editing his photos, but upon examining this one and checking out his other work, I’m impressed and baffled but the amazingly smooth and clean looks and super-dramatic lighting he achieves. This one looks almost like a miniature. I love it. Thanks, Minas!   Click here to see our other Photos of the...
Photo of the Day: “Housekeeping” by Werner Schwehm

Photo of the Day: “Housekeeping” by Werner Schwehm

PHOTO BY WERNER SCHWEHM, FLICKR   THIS PHOTO BY WERNER SCHWEHM IS AN EXAMPLE OF GREAT PERSPECTIVE. With a reflection of trees coming from behind us, a wonderful view of a sky full of clouds in front, and a man doing his job in between, this is a confusing perspective at first. This is cleverly photographed, making the front and back windows almost look like one two-dimensional plane, and lends a cool, almost disorienting effect to the photo. This photo is super clean, super detailed, has very...
Photo of the Day: “Peek” by Dan Parratt

Photo of the Day: “Peek” by Dan Parratt

PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, FLICKR   EVEN ON FIRST GLANCE, THIS PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, IS NOT AS MUNDANE AS THE SUBJECT MATTER SUGGESTS, In a great way, there’s something very painterly about this composition, and I also realized that it  is very appropriate for a Thanksgiving photo pick. There’s just something about the lighting. It has a rich softness and detail to it that really drew me into this photograph. I really love how the exposure allows me to see everything in this photo...
Photo of the Day: “Road to Enlightenment” by Matt Walker

Photo of the Day: “Road to Enlightenment” by Matt Walker

PHOTO BY MATT WALKER, FLICKR   THIS VIBRANT PHOTO, BY MATT WALKER, IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE LONG EXPOSURE, with the lights of traffic appearing as a strip of neon lights running through the wilderness. I really love the perspective of this photo, taken in California, taking full advantage of height as well as the perfect time of day to capture very dramatic clouds, a beautiful orange sky, and commuters completely unaware they are collectively making this art possible simply by going on their daily...

Photo of the Day: “southern lesser long-nosed armadillo” by Alexander Dülks

PHOTO BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, FLICKR   THIS ARCHITECTURAL PHOTO, BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, IS PERFECTLY COMPOSED. And has perfect contrast, having a drama to it without being overly dark or bright.   I love good (and interesting) architecture, and this definitely fits that description. This is a photo is of HEMISFÈRIC, a building designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, and is, believe it or not, actually a movie theater in València, Spain. Featuring IMAX and 3D screenings, and being part of the City...

Photo of the Day: “Take a coffee break” by Kappo Moriyoshi (明遊快)

PHOTO BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), IS MYSTERIOUS. I’d never guess it was taken in an airport, but it was.   This great composition features a barely-visible silhouette seen through glass, and excellent use of dynamic lighting. This is candid photography done very well, and it really stood out to me.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...

Warm Winter  Outerwear & Coats
   PHOTO BY CARL LARSON, FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY CARL LARSON, LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING DONE IN PHOTOSHOP, but it’s actually much more interesting than that. If you look closely at the right side of the photo, the stripes of color are actually three-dimensional tubes, and that they’re not all the same distance from the camera. The right side of the photo is the Le Moretti installation at La Defense, Paris. It’s a huge building-sized cylinder with tubes of different thicknesses and...
