All I Want for Christmas…The New Lytro Camera

Have you seen the new Lytro┬ácamera? You can get full details on the science behind it (light field mumbo jumbo) on the website. But putting theory into practice, the user can take a picture and then play around with the focus later. Here are examples of two pictures focused two different ways AFTER the image…

New Favorite: Abby Try Again

I just recently discovered the beautiful shop, Abby Try Again: It was hard decide which images to features. And  love how she provides details about the scenes – inspiration for the shot, how the picture was taken… Find more loveliness HERE.

Dancers Among Us

Love these crazy dancer pictures by Jordan Matter (discovered on Rickshaw Design). Even the bizarre ones… …and the mildly disconcerting ones… “Don’t give it away for free,” indeed! Seriously though – so cool!

More Holiday Cheer

I just heard from my friend Lindsey of GreatFull Day that she’s added holiday cards to her fine art photography shop on Etsy. How cute are these little guys? Each of the eight cards measure 5.5″ x 8.5″, and come with white envelopes. The front of the card reads “Wishing you joy” and the inside…

Selina Lake

I just love these images from stylist, Selina Lake’s portfolio: They just make me happy. Especially the cupcakes. I’m so predictable.

Help Save the Gulf

As a lifelong Louisiana resident, my blogging friend, Lindsey of A GreatFull Day and The Bright Side Project feels a strong connection to the tragedy unfolding daily along the Gulf Coast. In her own words: “Generations of fishermen who are following the only trade their family has ever known are jobless. Innocent animals are swimming…

Une**

I saw this picture on Creature Comforts and it literally took my breath away: Here are others I love by the same photographer (Une**) done in a similar style: Some of these make me feel like I could float up into the sky. Reminds me of movies that feature scenes in Heaven. Find more on…
