Photo of the Day (10.06.2008)

Where I live, it’s been raining for days. So I might be a bit biased but I love this photo taken in the Sacred Valley in Peru. I love the bright blue sky with fluffy white clouds, offset by the dry landscape. And I especially love the implication that Maras is up in the clouds, surrounded by angels and halos no doubt. Thanks to Dirty Dawg for submitting such a great photo.

Photo of the Day (03.06.2008)

Looking at this photo by Corey Wood, don’t you feel like you’re on top of the world? Really, how can you not? The high peak looks like it’s above everything. It’s a very interesting shot, but a precarious one too, as if a few steps forward could plunge you thousands of feet into the deep, rugged terrain.

I’m an urban girl at heart. I grew up in the city and that’s where I feel most comfortable: surrounded by blaring horns, blazing lights, people as far as the eye can see. Neon signs and the noises of strangers are seared into my psyche in a way that is inescapable.

So it goes without saying that I love night photography, particularly when it captures the lights of a busy urban nightscape. This photo of Nanjing, China by Matt Hintsa captures that perfectly. It’s a little grainy, a little blown out, but so is the city. So is any city.

Photo of the Day (5.20.2008)

Someone once told me that the sign of a good writer was the ability to make something mundane sound interesting. I think the same goes for photography — it’s the ability to see ordinary things in an extraordinary way, coupled with the ability to capture that view in your lens.

That’s what I like about this photo of a birch tree by Roberta Attalla. When was the last time you looked at a birch tree up close? My favourite aspect of this photo is the spectacular depth of field.
