One of my flickr contacts Joel Suganth who lives in Chennai, India has done a series on the town of Kasi. The images are multiple exposures layered or merged into one. EXIF on the images shows that they were scanned so it seems like these are multiple exposures done in camera which makes the technical side of this even more impressive. However he’s done them, the images are spectacular, they channel a sense of place and mood.

Images like these make me want to go places and take more pictures.

Postcards to my future self

My longtime flickr contact Linda Plaisted has a wonderful collection of photo-collages up on flickr that’s easy to view as a slideshow: Postcards to my future self.

I highly recommend looking at the slide show, full screen.

Linda does wonderful work, reminiscent of the late Donald Evans. His book The World of Donald Evans is available on amazon new and used: The World of Donald Evans (Paperback).

Poppies at the Huntington Gardens

Huntington Gardens, Pasadena, California. It was windy and I couldn’t get close enough to use my tripod and the Huntington didn’t have a lot in bloom except these poppies (excuses, excuses), so, I shot a lot of poppies.

This first one’s dedicated to Georgia O’Keefe (grin).

These were all taken with a Canon EOS 5D DSLR and a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens. Processed with Lightroom.

Catskill Mountains, New York. Dave and I did a 5 mile (r/t) snowshoe hike up Slide Mountain, the highest "peak" in the Catskills. This image was taken a mile in at the first trail intersection. You may think a 5 mile hike isn’t much but gaining 1700′ on snowshoes is, in a word, breathtaking. It was a great hike with fantastic views.

Note: This hike was done in early February.

Vowl Meet Vowl, a very small app that displays random…

Vowl

Vowl is a free Macintosh application from stevenf (Panic) that given a tag or list of tags will display a random flickr slideshow in a window on your computer. Simple, clean, well designed and fun.

If you click on an image you go directly to that image on flickr.

If this becomes popular it will hopefully push people on flickr to use tags more effectively. Most flickr users have little idea of the power of tags, both within the flickr universe and with apps like Vowl, outside it.
