Color photographs of the Great Depression

leave a comment

Beautiful photographs taken near the end of the Great Depression. Not nearly as stark as the B-W photos from the same time and evocative of what it must have felt like to be emerging from the Depression.

Maybe Not So Much…

There are a few “mysteries” surrounding those supposed Ansel Adams  prints found in Fresno at a garage sale. Too bad, it was a great story while it lasted.

Captured: Guttenfelder’s iPhone Photos | via Daring Fireball, via Denver Post.com

David Guttenfelder… used an iPhone camera, carried in his flak jacket pocket, coupled with a Polaroid film filter application to photograph the daily lives of Marines, Afghan soldiers and fellow journalists during the military offensive in Marjah, Afghanistan.

Incredible photos and shots that put Chase Jarvis’ “Best Camera” maxim into practical terms.

The tilt-shift photography in this video has a beautiful, ethereal quality to it. Wonderful timelapse as well.
