We (+Shuwen Lisa Wu, +Peter Tellone, +Joseph Smith and I) watched "Finding Vivian Maier" at the La Jolla Village Theater last Friday. (movie homepage: http://findingvivianmaier.com/)

If there's one thing that really struck me it's the beauty of these old black & white film photographs. It makes me want to get a film camera and some black & white film! And her sense for composition and the right moment is truly, truly remarkable.

As stated in the movie, the low angle provided by the Rolleiflex camera seems to add a lot to the uniqueness of her images. I just browsed the "Street" portfolios on the website (http://www.vivianmaier.com/) that John Maloof created again, the images are SO good. And while this may be enough to appreciate her work, I still liked the film. It's good entertainment, and what a story.

Reiffelberg & Vorderlahnerkopf for +Michael Russell and +Mountain Monday. Made in November 2008.

#mountainmonday  

(the first share had an enormous story about the dangers I went through when making this photo, but I felt I shouldn't mock other photographers whose popularity is based equally on telling fairy tales and images alike too much, and thus removed it;-)

I'd still file this type of #music mostly under #chillout but I see that it's also labelled #deephouse  or #deeptechno  - which is more refined perhaps, but leaves this old man here rather clueless. :) Either way, it's another pretty fine mix from neonlogic aka Pedro Federico. Check it out.

Sometimes it's unavoidable to make a photo with the stupid phone. At least it's not square cropped.

The Handmade Photograph is a new e-Zine from my great Editor, Wendy Erickson at the sadly gone Photo Technique magazine. She's continuing the great articles for the Photographic Creative and I'm really proud she asked me aboard.

Another Tim Fitzharris Quote: “Sometimes it happens that a person acquires a camera and the discipline of photography forces him to look at the world more critically. In the process he encounters a new and intriguing kind of visual experience.”

Gorgeous star trails by +Jao van de Lagemaat
 
The polar vortex - Star Wings

Here is the first image I am ready to show from Bisti Badlands/De-Na-Zin Wilderness. This is an extraordinary place just south of Farmington, New Mexico, not far from Chaco Canyon. I was here for a night with +Benjamin Parker , and Dave Peterman. We left our cameras out clicking away for several hours while we had some dinner. I ended up with 315 exposures, each 33 seconds long (30 seconds + about 3 seconds to open and close the shutter and to restart. I then combined all these exposures in Photoshop. The light on the foreground structures is from the moon. This place is truly magical and highly recommended for a visit.
