Flickr a Week 7b: ‘The NYC Band, The Upwelling’
Our Sunday spot shouldn’t be, because of endings: The photographer is no longer active on Flickr, and I am unable to confirm that his subject matter still exists. But I can’t resist the portrait for looking to be exactly what it is—in purest, iconic, grainy, black-and-white composition: An indy rock group.

He describes himself as a “Grammy Award and multi-platinum, award-winning mix engineer”. He mixed the group’s album “An American Stranger”, which released in August of the same year that he snapped the photo.

Flickr a Day 290: ‘Anécdotas de la Sequía’
Great title, bleak mood, and compelling accompanying blog post give the Day to Carlos Acosta. He shot self-titled “Anécdotas de la Sequía”—”Anecdotes of Drought”—on June 15, 2014, using Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi and EF-S18-55mm […]
Flickr a Day 228: ‘Two Visitors’
Searching for photos to feature, I come across many stinkers. The worst offenders are those with greatest potential: Composition is excellent, but the image is blurry—perhaps being out of focus or because of camera shake. […]
