Half Dome On Fire–Or Maybe Just Clouds? And Is The Photographer Who Caught The Image Skillful, Or Just Lucky?
Half Dome in Yosemite isn’t really on fire here, it’s just a cloud being hit by sunlight, but I like this photo because it: (1) illustrates aspect seeing (as in psychology textbooks, where the eye can’t decide if it’s looking … Continue reading
I’m super interested in seeing this documentary.
An eerily Earth-like image of the Martian ground and Gale’s crater wall:
Matt Drudge is good at finding unsettling images, but I found this one especially disturbing (though I couldn’t identify why): Then it registered: it echoes the famous Robert Capa image of Federico Borrell García dropping from a gunshot during the … Continue reading
_____ You are home. _____ Image source: NASA (Suomi Satellite, January 4, 2012)
Contributers to the new site called “Dear Photograph” align old photographs with their points of origin, then retake the images. The achieved result is the display of people ghost-haunting, as it were, places in which they are no longer present (either because they have … Continue reading
Charles Hood’s photo essay on how places, when we travel, are “supposed” to look (as opposed to how they actually do look) put me in mind of the following Christina Rossetti poem meditating upon the inharmonies of existence. It appears to be addressed to … Continue reading

And according to what Camille Paglia says at Salon today, she should be done with it by the Fall of 2010: I have gone on hiatus from Salon to focus on my current project for Pantheon Books — a study of the … Continue reading
The segment below comes from a History Channel documentary titled Where are All the UFOs? (2005). The documentary itself is excellent—really a “must see” for anyone interested in critically examining UFOs as a phenomenon. The thesis of the documentary is that UFOs are … Continue reading
One of the first photographic images ever taken of a dog, this daguerrotype is from the 1850s and is scheduled to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s soon:
Andrew Sullivan directs us to this stunning juxaposition of a corner in Leningrad, during WWII, and that same corner, in what is now St. Petersburg, today.
It was on a street in Paris, and it was 1838 (over 170 years ago). A man is having his shoe shined by a “shoe shine boy.” At this period in the history of photography, the exposure time required to … Continue reading
