Sometimes, I stop where Adams Ave. ends in my neighborhood to see if the Pacific Ocean is visible along the horizon. The location is sentimental—for our long time living nearby; the overlook’s majestic view; and […]
Where Madison Ave. ends here in San Diego’s University Heights neighborhood, one can look down the canyon into Mission Valley and see the Pacific Ocean off in the distance. I captured the moment, while walking […]
The series seriously could feature more landscapes. I picked self-titled “Endless Winter Nights’, which Carlos Andrés Reyes shot on Jan. 1, 2015, for composition with the moon. He captured the moment using Canon EOS 70D and EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS […]
September 7, 2014: “The sun is rising and starting to eat away at the fog—revealing two fisherman who were up before the crack of dawn to drop their lines”, says Jamie McCaffrey, who shot self-titled […]
We follow up yesterday’s car and planes with another seemingly simple shot. The Northern Lights are canvas against which Jeff Wallace magnificently presents appropriately self-titled “The Guardian”. “This tree is always begging to be photographed”, he says. […]
The series first tombstone greets this fine September day. I do hope it doesn’t forebode badly on the 248 posts behind and those still to come. Jamie Davies captured the moment on Aug. 18, 2015, […]
This series favors street photography over any other style, which unfairly reflects my preferences. Some shooters favor something else. Stuart Anthony is “no use at all, at all, at photographing people. I much prefer to […]
Sometimes the photo you get isn’t the one you take but the one you make. “This was not exactly the composition I wanted, but I just didn’t wanted any people in the shot”, Miroslav Petrasko […]
Our three-day walk—or is that falling flat face—down fad memory lane concludes with another selection from four summers ago. You remember the craze, right? Or did you forget? (Please do.) Nate Bolt shot self-titled “Road […]
After five days of Comic-Con—189, 190, 191, 192, 193—it’s time for something serene. Tom Gill carves out a unique niche, specializing in landscape photography in and around Lake Michigan. He captured today’s selection on June […]
I don’t think much of modern, electricity-producing windmills. Surely there will be negative environmental effects on wildlife (eh, birds) and air currents (eke, weather), when solar is free energy if only we would take more […]
I debated long about whether this photo should be today’s selection. For starters, Richard Robles is no longer active on Flickr, which he joined in January 2006, and I could find little else about him—even confirmation that the gentlemen still lives. The image also isn’t the sharpest, taken with the Kodak EasyShare CX7525, which by today’s standards is a vintage digital compact. But the colors appeal, and bleak landscape is home: Aroostook County, Maine.
Aroostook, or “beautiful river”, but referred to as the “Crown of Maine” on maps and in tourism marketing, is a single, isolated county. Aroostook is so expansive—larger than the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined—that many Mainers refer to it as “The County”.
