Google Reader lived on borrowed time: creator Chris Wetherell reflects This is a great history and commentary from one of the creators of Google Reader. If there were things that went wrong, then there is a lot of positive things that came from Google Reader, Wetherell said. He believed that one of the main reasons [...]

Vincent Talleu shows us the process of making croissants and other French pastries. The video quality on this isn’t as good as his Bakery Work (bread baking) video but it’s still fascinating to see bakery work on this scale, and Vincent is a character.
Flickr member berrberr2012 has used a Sony RX100 o capture this excellent window reflection in Lyon, France.
Flickr member sorakaze.so has caught some lotus leaves with a great reflection and even with a bit of sun flare made this image work well.
Salisbury, Connecticut. We cross this little “streamlet” on the Undermountain Trail on the way up Bear Mountain. This small pool is usually crying out to be photographed because it catches great reflections from the trees and rocks around it and I particularly like the reflections, like this one, where the biggest boulder has a layer [...]
On the Appalachian Trail between Hubbard Brook and Rt. 7 near Sheffield, Massachusetts. This was the finest collection of ice patterns I’d ever seen in my many years of looking for and shooting them. This was a shallow swamp right on the trail with a small crumbling bridge/boardwalk running through it. On either side of [...]
On the Appalachian Trail near Sheffield, Massachusetts. Dave, Loren and I went on one of our regular hikes from Jug End to Rt. 7 on the Appalachian Trail. As we walked through a small meadow with low pine trees Loren spotted what he thought was an old wasp’s nest. Dave took one look at it [...]
West Cornwall, Connecticut. Loren and I snowshoed up to the Pine Swamp beaver pond a few days ago. It was extremely cold (about 12F) but there was enough snow and while it was post-holed in places it was snowshoeable with our rather aggressive MSR mountaineering snowshoes. This is a small dam downstream of the main [...]
Sony DSC-RX1 Review James Duncan Davidson has put together an excellent review of the Sony RX1. Coincidentally, I’ve rented one for a week and have it in my possession right now and I can say without hesitation that his review is extremely worthwhile to read if you have any interest in this camera (which I [...]
Conflict Transforms Syrian English Teacher Into War Photographer Kelly McEvers and her NPR team have done a great job producing this story on Noor Kelze, a Syrian English teacher who has transformed herself into a photojournalist covering the Syrian conflict from the inside. This story is worth listening to, you don’t get the war sound [...]
The Vivian Maier Photography Project from Aaron Cahan on Vimeo. The post below is from 2011 but I’m bumping it up with the addition of this excellent video of the project to archive her work. Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American street photographer born in New York City. Although [...]
West Cornwall, Connecticut. Hiking back from the Pine Swamp beaver pond I stopped to shoot a small outcropping of icicles and dripping ice on a small cliff face. I haven’t shot this type of ice much before and it’s a bit tougher than shooting down on flat ice; the depth of it makes finding interesting [...]
West Cornwall, Connecticut. Another trip to the Pine Swamp Beaver ecosystem last week during a cold snap to explore and take pictures. These ice shots were taken in a small waterway feeding into the main pond from upstream. This is actually frozen foam and tree reflection.
Schaghticoke Ridge on the Appalachian Trail south of Kent, Connecticut. Dave and I hiked south on the AT with this small stream (Thayer Brook) as our destination. I shot a lot of ice but these two images of the reflection of three trees in the brook caught my eye. This one is shot at f/1.8 [...]
BRAINSTORM – TRAVIS JENSEN – PHOTOGRAPHY from KAYOTV on Vimeo. Street photographer Travis Jensen talks about how he works as he walks around San Francisco taking pictures. He has a very down to earth way about him, he uses small cameras (looks like a Ricoh GR series) and he makes exceptional images. [via PetaPixel]
Flickr member frischauge has a very nice series of images of this glass office building in Bonn, Germany shot with the Sony RX100.
My longtime flickr contact Mr Inky has posted a fantastic monochrome reflection of Central Park, New York shot with a Ricoh GRD 2 point and shoot camera.
The New York Times has put together a nice time lapse video of the assembly of a Dodge Viper in a newly reopened Chrysler plant in Detroit, Michigan. [via Product by Process]
This is a great promotional video from Sony on the assembly of their RX1 full frame, fixed lens camera, a smartphone and a camcorder. The RX1, which is the piece I’m interested in is in the upper left-hand corner.
