PhoToe Link Fodder
One thing that can be said about a big event in Toronto, like the fire yesterday on Queen W -- it brings out the photographers
I have been looking around for a decent dayminder / calendar. I actually was using a free Spacing calendar I found last year, one with lots of photos of Rannie's. Lo and behold, I could continue the trend
Yeah, I want to be able to bake and take photos like this
. Once Marmy starts in full force, I intend to actually attempt to try it with my meager photoography "equipment" and skills.
Hadn't come across this before. It's TagBrowsr
, an alternate way to browse Flickr photos by tag.
is just a WOW product and that has nothing to do with Orcs and Dragons. Imagine mapping dozens (or thousands) of photos onto a three dimensional space and being able to fly through it.
This PictoBrowser Preview
is just too kewl. It makes me like my photos again and the sizing is decent. time to resurrect?
When I used to shoot B&W 35mm photography, I used to love the shots where the film flowed into the shot and you could see the sprocket holes and labels and such. But in no way could it be as neat as this kind of shot
As is evidence by this pic
(i do not remember it being so out of focus), there is a store nearby that would allow me to try my own hand at recreating a tiny street art project
Holey Moley, I guess I missed this Vista on the Rocks
!! Did anyone go to the ice house? Did Vista crash?
Now THAT is the way to do a birthday cake
, well at least if you are a robot fan, and really, who isn't a robot fan?
Mmmmmm, a poutine tour
. While there is not all that much poutine in the tour (2) it is easily forgiven when reminded that is southern california. I wanted to do a similar tour here in TO when I first arrived from Montreal. But alas, there are toooo many canned-gravy, shoestring fries and cheddar cheese poutines to make it palatable.
I started here at the Lala love you
set on Flickr. He tags his CD cases from La La
, a place to trade CDs for about a buck. And it sort of spread around
. I like that.
You might call it photos of dancers caught in mid-move, as they are suspended in air by high speed film. I call it people who threw themselves at the ground
and missed. Gravity's a bastiche.
Holey moley, it's The Day After Tomorrow
come to real life with a Frozen Tidal Wave
. It might be just me but the ice looks delicious.
Back when I first starting to create CD Covers, I would scan in favourite photographs from books I found at the library. The original to this legomogrification
was one of my first.
Rosie O'Donnel has a Flickr account
? I wonder how many other well known celebrities have them?
This International Shooting All The Time Day Contest
contest would be fun but how the heck can you shoot all day long?? There are certain activities that might take more than the alloted 1 hour of personal time. And it's not like you could squeeze them into that 5 mins. I guess there would be a lot of cheating ---- dinner time, just place the cam down and click the same thing over and over until food is eaten.
Tee hee !! It's The Post-It Note Jaguar
. I have always been fond of elaborate pranks pulled on friends and co-workers from the shaving cream filled cars to the "glue every stick of furniture to the cieling" efforts. This one is pretty.
I am not the only one with a Tachikoma
on their desk !!
Heh heh heh, I am not sure if the cat has a "I am cute!!" expression his or her face
or an expression of, "Get this off me before I go Spanish Inquisition on you!!"
This is a neat idea that must require some forethought or at least alot of people (as well as yourself) taking photos of you. She has 28 pictures
of herself through the ages.
I mentioned lightboxing items to be photographed the other day and part of it is choosing your background. You can go with white and have them float or you can choose a neat background for texture, like Rannie has done in the Flickr photos
; just browse back for more.
And the source for all this lightbox and food posting (damn i am hungry now) is the blog Still Life With...
The other day I built a cheapass DIY lightbox
(i cannot find the link to the original but there are quite a few; editor's note: found it!
), which allows me to do do decent "backgroundless" shots of my toys and such, but what I really want to know is about taking better pictures of food
I think this souvenirs photoset on Flickr
is brilliant and I would like to propose we Canadians do a similar one, one where we take pictures of the souvenir next to a real object next to the giant version of an object. For example, on the highway between here and Montreal is a Giant Apple. We should hold an apple next to a keychain apple next to the Giant Apple. Since most Giant X
are animals, it might be more difficult.
Really, if these superheroe photos
were not so lame they wouldn't give the best image of the average hero.
Oooooo, someone has panography for sale at The Inevitable Goddamn Sellout
. And they are from these sets of photos
. Someday I will be bold enough to do one with actual printed photos.
Remeber how I said the only better than making photos was printing photos? I joined JPG Magazine
; maybe they
will print my photos.
Wow, sometimes you can click a random button, like the one at moodaholic
and get something incredible !!
The video for Harrowdown Hills
by Thom Yorke is a beautiful piece of work that makes use of the photography technique called Tilt Shift
You know what is even more fun than creating panography
? Printing panography on 8.5 x 11 inch sheets of photopaper suitable for cheap ass framing. Weeeeee.
Ahhh, so that is where that link
on my newly created Flickr Set
came from. I almost built a minibook
immediately and then I noticed I was immediately usng my credit card far too much this month.
Interesting. Kottke colour corrected some early 20th century photos
to envision what they would look like taken with modern equipment while I am using a PS filter to make recent photos look like the older original photos.
One of Marmy and mine's lil jokes is whenever I see a man with a Hasselblad camera, I ask her to distract him (i.e. flash boobies) while I take his gear. We may require more distraction for the Hasselblad 39 megapixel DSLR
L pointed to the photographer in the window in the Market Square area who does powerful collagey photographic works of Toronto. You can find something similar at Flickr: Panography
In case people are interested in seeing pictures of Cape Breton over at my photoblog
, I doubt I will be putting up very many touristy type shots. But this guy
definately makes up for my lacking.
There is now a Naked Cowgirl
?? P.S. Yes, I am back and currently deleting comment spam.
Could you do the same thing as The Brooklynites
for a neighbourhood of Toronto or even the whole city?
Awoken with the usual night terrors that provide me with insomnia these days (tonight, i had left my bag at a girls place leaving behind my only weapon against the zombies following me on a walk from queen & parliment to yonge & eg) and surfed for a little distraction to find another photoblog and great harbour shot at c o l o u r b l i n d
Rannie's borrow P&S has a feature called widescreen
. That is so neat!
Rannie is doing a series with a new Canon Powershot SD700 IS
. Oip! Now I won't be able to get away with blaming the quality of my shots on them being done with a Canon P&S.
are two people who take incredible portraits really pointing out the Beautiful People here in Toronto.
Now that I don't make as many mixCDs or create covers to be inset into jewel cases, I didn't know what to do with the crate of em I have. Now I can do DIY Jewel Case Photo Frames
. Not that I have hung the other dozen frames I already have.
While randomly wandering a friend's LiveJournal Friends listings, I came across these incredible photos On the Corner
. p.s. ...
Woot! Imogen Heap (you know, the Frou Frou
, song from Garden State
, girl) has a Flickr account
This article about Real Photo Postcards
is neat considering this is basically what my new photoblog is going to be based on.
OK, the fibonacci broccoli
is a great image of those broccoli cauliflower mixes but it makes me wonder. Are they actual crossbreeds or just green cauliflower? (found via photojunkie
I thought I had already linked to minature men on top of food
but I cannot find it in my archives. Either I didn't or my archiving paradigm has failed.
is the best. graffiti. ever.
Ouch. This baby jane
is what black & white photography is all about.
OK, Cats In Sinks
is too cute. No, I know what you are thinking but I am not going to lose my right arm trying to put Balthie in a sink.
The disaster in the american south has led to much looting and finding
. the most interesting thing is the response in the comments.
I added the first permalink in ages and it was due to this string of Toronto night images at Brett Lamb's Blog
. Photoblogging, when not by a skilled photographer should be neighbourhoodly like this. But I am not so what do i know.
You might call it shooting flying insects
but i call it 'spending a lot of time, requiring a lot of expertise, spending probably quite a bit of money, assembling a scifi camera array... all for the sake of bugs'. Neat! (via milo
You know what I like about Jon's site, other than shots like this Bug
? It's the little detail that the photo ends up in the masthead of the comment box.
harvested her garden
produce and man does it look yummy !! She also has a book
on creating such a gorgeous selection.
If I ever tire of trying to get my printer to print accurately I can always print from home
It's a portfolio and it's called intransient
. It's Canadian and possibly Torontonian. It also has a photoblog
Rather than doing a story about only local people, the BBC does a story about a worldwide set of photobloggers
, including Toronto's DDOI
