Anti-Paparazzi Scarf
Flash Photography Protection

#photography #fasion
You know what it's like. You're super famous. Everybody recognizes you. You can't even open your front door without stepping into a frenzy of flash photography. We've all been there (...). But thanks to this paparazzi-proof privacy scarf, the days of being snapped everywhere you go are well and truly over.

Italian Village as Web

My kids and I were just discussing this in relation to Facebook.

#photography   #socialmedia  
Civitacampomarano is a small village in the province of Campobasso with just 400 souls, mainly elderly. In this village, rich in folk traditions, internet is a partially unknown world: mobile phones have difficulty working and the data connection is practically nonexistent. The provocative idea is to show that these virtual functions, considered by the vast majority of the population as necessary and essential to everyday life, also exist in t...

Oddly Satisfying Paint Smearing with Annete Labedzki

Beautiful stuff this!

#art #painting +Annette Labedzki

There are two kinds of people: the ones who think Annette Labedzki's paint smearing videos are oddly satisfying and others that find them insanely disturbing. This Canadian artist has an Instagram channel with 220,000 followers, and probably they all fall in the first category. What about you?

NASA has a New Camera
The High Dynamic Range Stereo X camera system is capable of filming rocket-propulsion flame.

#photography #hdr #hidyrs-x #nasa
The new booster test was a perfect opportunity to try out the High Dynamic Range Stereo X (HiDyRS-X) - a revolutionary new camera system that allows capturing extremely bright objects without darkening the rest of the image. It works by taking multiple slow motion videos of different exposures simultaneously and then combining them into one high-quality clip.

Fantastic Drawings from Van Gogh

Lines and Colors has a post about some of Van Gogh's lesser know work, including some useful links.

#art #drawing #painting #vangogh
As I've mentioned in my previous posts showcasing some “Not the usual Van Gogh's” (and here), we are often given the impression that an artist's oeuvre is much smaller that is really is because art publishers and even museums tend to emphasize an artist's “greatest hits” over and over, ...

Rebel's Daydream

#shortfilm   #prerapharlite  #aestheticism
A breathtaking animated video celebrating the beauty and poetry of Pre-Raphaelite art. Directed and produced by Anna-Ester Volozh. Honestly, I was touched by the delicacy of this work. Absolutely stunning. Watch below. Rebel’s Daydream – Tribute to the Pre-Raphaelites from Dragonbee on Vimeo. by

Norma Jeane Dougherty

Young Marilyn Monroe, Malibu Beach, 1946

Before she was breaking hearts all around the world, Marilyn Monroe was Norma Jeane Dougherty, and there was only one heart she cared about: that of photographer André de Dienes.

Introduction
Freelance writer, constant learner and family man.

Hi! Thanks for taking time to visit me here at Google+.

I have been writing, critiquing, reviewing and promoting writers and books for over a dozen years now. I welcome the opportunity to freelance for writers, companies and web sites who need book reviews and for organizations seeking to promote their selves or their programs and products. What I really want to do, however, is write fiction.

Over the years I've had many and sundry day jobs, learning lots of interesting things. In 2009 -- following a disabling on-the-job injury as a delivery driver -- I returned to school to pursue a degree in English.

I have been married for sixteen years to the most wonderful person I have ever known. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it. We reside in West Texas with our two delightful children and a very silly Jackawawa.


These are some circles to which I might like to be added:
  • reading / writing
  • books / publishing
  • art / photography / painting
  • music
  • education
  • business / marketing / leadership
  • geek
