Most of the major photo sites are included in the collection and it’s a great way to scan headlines without actually visiting all the sites, very much like a newsreader except they do the aggregation for you. Very useful, I’ll be scanning it often.
This is an excellent web presentation with three columns: video, transcript, and section jumps. Clicking on a section jump moves the transcript and the video to that place. Beautifully done. All important speeches need this treatment and they’ve given it to what I consider an even more important speech Obama gave in Philadelphia on race during the primaries: Obama’s Speech on Race.
It looks to me like Obama’s idea of having a rally in a big stadium instead of a convention center paid off. The place was packed and the energy was high. This photograph captures a bit of it. Note that it was done with a Canon XSi and a Sigma 8mm f3.5 circular fisheye lens. It was four shots around on a custom rig with the camera set to ISO 1600 and aperture priority metering. Nice image(s).
Women Are Heroes is a photographic project by a French photographer, “JR” that depicts women in Kenya, South Sudan, Sierra-Leone, Liberia, Brazil, and soon India, Cambodia, and Laos with large scale architectural installations of photographs.
The first, third, and fourth photographs in the set show this work in place in Rio.
The French photographer identified as JR is launching a project called “Women Are Heroes”, through which the photographs of women, relatives of the victims of clashes between the police and drug traffickers, were placed in the facades of the houses. This project already took place in Sudan, Sierra Leone, Kenya and Liberia, and will be taken to India, Cambodia, Laos and Morocco after Brazil.
