riverside school

a wonderful set of photographs from the seventies by george plemper titled riverside school

in my early days i was employed as a science teacher at riverside school … my negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them.

i was fiddling around with my parents’ old toyocaflex camera on sunday – looking through the viewfinder, focusing in and out and wishing it still worked (and that i had some film). instead i wandered around their garden shooting with my own camera and attempted to create the look i wanted in photoshop. some of these are a bit hit & miss, but i kind of like the way they turned out – more at my flickr.

joey lawrence

when i first saw joey lawrence‘s photography of holy men, tribes and people in ethiopia, india & indonesia, i thought that he must be a veteran photographer… possibly over 40, probably more like over 50 – with years of experience and travelling under his belt. turns out he was born in 1987 (which makes him 4 years younger than me) . wow. his portfolio includes impressive commercial projects for the advertising & music industries, but his personal photography is what really caught my eye. go check out his website for more photos as well as his blog for interesting travel stories & videos.

crystal lake

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

hello my name is dev

hello my name is dev has a cool photo collection, and i chuckled at his profile description on flickr, “i’m addicted to the internet… i don’t think i’ve logged off since 1998.” yup. that pretty much sums up my sentiments, too.
