I’ve been sitting on this link for a couple of weeks I need to just get it out there (on the off chance you haven’t seen it by now): wonderful portraits, and an excellent concept: humanæ.

This is a wonderful cardboard fashion shoot, I wish I knew when I had originally saved the link… by now perhaps you’ve already seen it?

I an Ruhter has converted a van into camera in which he does wet plate photography. The images are stunning and the concept is just amazing. I have a hard time saying anything more than just “Wow!” More images here

Since I often find myself in completely in my head and over critical of my work, my ideas or other photographers and their ideas which is why I found Allen Murabayashi’s rant on PetaPixel refreshing: there is a lot going on out there and a lot of it is amazing! I need to make more amazing things too: Less whinging, more winging it!

Apparently I started to post this link back in December and failed to hit publish. It’s been nearly a month but they’re still good photos: I really enjoyed Tom Hussey’s series of photographs on the subject of Alzheimer’s. A meticulously staged and executed concept.

This recently made a big splash in the web. And I think it really highlights what I think is important and valuable about photography. She also has a follow up due to the response to the original post here. I know I am currently in a place personally where my status as a “professional” photographer is in flux: I’ve had to return to school and I am working on alternative career paths to provide for my family and our debt load but I found the piece touching and inspiring to continue making memories for those that I have the good fortune to be able to work for.

The New isn’t quite here yet (I guess it technically still has a couple of days). However, these 2011 National Geographic Photos contest winners make gorgeous wallpapers.

Imminent finals and the poorly named “dead week” are currently eating into my coherency. But I really liked this Star Wars themed engagement shoot. How much fun was that?

I know I blew up the website but will you cut me some slack if I share this gorgeous set of time lapse photos shot from the International Space Station?

I loved the clouds in Mitch Dobrowner‘s “Storm” series (I’d link directly to the series but his site doesn’t work like that) there’s just something about good cloud photos for me lately, I wish I could put my finger on it. If I could I’d make Joe, give me the storm tour next summer so I could try to get some of my own, sadly I am not sure that is an option I’ll be offered (at least not in the foreseeable future anyway).

I love this set of cloud photographs from German photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow.

So my aikido pics are coming along slower than I had hoped this week. Instead I will give you this charming engagement shoot from Amanda Rynda Photography. How much fun was that?

Designer Milton Glaser (of “I Heart NY” fame) has a little bit to say about the “fear of failure.” Good stuff! (found via the talented John Allison.)

I just had to share this recently enhanced 1979 photo of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot.

I found this to extremely helpful for my own creative process. I often find myself frustrated because I am not doing things that are “new.” This list of (autobiographical) advice brings me back down and reminds me it’s ok to focus on the projects I am enjoying and that their quality will come from my enjoyment of the work.

I really liked these series of photos by Terry Border subtitled “The Secret Life of Everyday Objects.” They are funny in a wonderfully whimsical and clever way.

One of the many many things I love about photography is it’s ability to simply and beautifully illustrate such a wide range of the human experience and its struggles. The latest one to catch my eye are these wonderful portraits in the SCAR Project.

“The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.”

The Comsic Log over at MSNBC has collected some nice photos and video of Discovery’s last launch. The video was taken from a commercial airliner (that had been delayed two hours-the captain instructs the passengers they can no longer complain about being late) not much has been released from Quest for the Stars yet but the couple of stills they have released are very promising.

I recently found a link (although now I can’t remember where, sorry) to this entry about Luu Bolin a photographer and artist in China. Liu literally attempts to disappear into his self portraits of himself around China. The combination of body painting and photography that he has put together in his “Hiding in the City” series is simply amazing.

Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day is particularly gorgeous, an ethereal landscape from Switzerland featuring the moon and the planet Venus. I love the variety of photos shown on the site but the possibility of gems like today are what bring me back every day.
