still pining for a road trip / outdoor adventure. in case you didn’t catch that.
just to remind all you northerners to enjoy spring (as if that was necessary).
one of the many reasons i want to visit the states is to someday partake in a great american road trip. kyle johnson and friends did just that, and photographed some beautiful landscapes. see the entire set at flickr.
sunlit valley (1920) - charles courtney curran
this is what i want to do today.
this is obersee, a lake that is connected to the larger königssee, in the german state of bavaria. these lakes were formed by glaciers in the last ice age, and have the cleanest water in germany. it is quite possibly one of the most beautiful places i have ever seen! to see its location (and loads more photos) click here
i agonized for about 5 seconds over whether i had posted about peter baker before (i’m pretty sure i haven’t, but my tagging can be sporadic). even if i have – these photographs warrant a second look. and a third & fourth etc. i just love them, especially his images of iceland (what is with me and iceland?). i could hardly pick my top photos to feature, so please go over to his flickr and have a gander.
he also sums up his sentiments on film vs digital quite nicely:
If it didn’t look a million times better, I wouldn’t bother with it (film). Of course it’s subjective, but film looks more like what I saw when I made the photo. Plus, I like making decisions about what my photo will look like before I take it, rather than monkeying for hours on the computer to try and recreate what I saw. Photography is what I do to get away from the ‘puter, digital just makes for more sitting down time.
