Take another little piece of the internet away, FFFFOUND! to close

Monday, 24 April, 2017

Ten years after opening for business, image sharing website FFFFOUND! will be closing on 8 May.

In the early days, membership was highly coveted, and by invitation only. Some design forums ran threads whereby members would send an invitation to someone hoping to join FFFFOUND!, so long as they later extended an invitation to someone else who wanted to join.

While founder Yugo Nakamura offered no reason for the closure, some people are blaming Tumblr for the demise of FFFFOUND!.

London as a tropical city? Manchester photographer David M can see it

Friday, 21 April, 2017

Photo by David M

Manchester based photographer David M adjusts the hues and saturations of his images, and here imagines London as a city in the tropics. I was about to say old London town looks great in such a light, but with the way things are going climate wise, it may yet turn out that way, and likely for worse, rather than better.

Photo by Bernadette Pollard

Bernadette Pollard is a Minneapolis based editorial and documentary photographer. This photo was taken at Horseshoe Bend in Arizona. The bend is what’s called an incised meander of the Colorado River, which, as the name suggests, is horseshoe shaped.

The river, and the bend, are not visible here, but there’s still plenty to see. The more you look, the more detail you’ll discern.

Artwork by Ryan Buchanan

Before turning to photography, Austin, Texas, based Ryan Buchanan was a graphic designer. As with more than a few people, a love of travel saw him making a career change. That might have been an especially good choice for the rest of us though.

What are the chances we may not have ever seen an image like this? And while it look like it was taken on one of the moons of Saturn, this is in fact the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina.

The photography of economist, and traveller, Laurence Wong

Monday, 10 April, 2017

Photo by Laurence Wong

Laurence Wong has a reasonably unique blend of occupations, he’s a photographer, an economist, and a traveller. He certainly gets around, in recent times he’s been to places such as Chicago, Hawaii, Seoul, Bali, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong.

The question is, which role lands him the travel? Being an economist, or a photographer? Something to ponder, I think, as you look at his work.
