ICP wants coronavirus photos

The International Center of Photography (ICP) is compiling photographs of the pandemic, and wants to source those images from people around the world. The idea behind the project is to connect everyone’s separate pandemic experiences, and create archives of this era for future generations. So far, selected images have included a nearly empty subway car, deserted streets, people social distancing in the metro, a young child in self-isolation looking out the window of her home, and more. ...

Indoor adventure Instagram trend

Visiting the great outdoors during a lockdown might not be impossible, but it’s certainly more complicated. Many parks and trails are closed, and we’re highly discouraged from adventuring too far from home on trails that may attract too many people. As the weather warms, sitting indoors will get tougher and tougher as we crave an outdoor experience. One outdoor Instagram influencer is proposing a solution: indoor adventures. Erin Sullivan is creating the #OurGreatIndoors challenge, inviting f...

Thoughts from Amalfi during Coronavirus

Over the past 13 years, I’ve written a lot about the Amalfi Coast. About beautiful beaches, about my favorite hikes through quiet villages, about food, about the people, and really most everything in between. Plot twist. So here I sit at my tiny desk inside our small house right in the historic center of Amalfi. Thankfully, I can see a few lemon trees and the bright bursts of purple as the bougainvillea in the neighbor’s garden starts to bloom. We have a little balcony off the bedroom that overl...

Cowboy museum security on social

Museums around the world may be closing to promote social distancing, and for some museum staff, that means assuming new roles in this unprecedented situation. At the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Tim is the head of security. Now that the museum is closed, however, Tim was given the added responsibility of managing the museum’s social media account — and the result is hilarious. View this post on Instagram ...

Charities aiding hospitality workers

For many people around the country, this COVID-19 era is dark times. Restaurants and bars nationwide have laid off hourly employees. Hotels, airlines, buses, and other travel-related fields are surely not far behind. And only time will tell how far-reaching this month’s economic consequences may be. Organizations all over the nation are trying to help people who have lost their jobs or are otherwise struggling financially, and all are accepting donations. That means you, assuming you’re cash...

Queer events you can attend online

As the coronavirus pandemic alters daily life, queer events around the world are getting canceled, but there’s one event COVID-19 can’t touch: Couchella. That’s right — the hottest ticket in town is the house-party-of-one you’re hosting from your living room. Proximity doesn’t preclude us from gathering in the digital age. While it’s necessary to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the coronavirus, a social recession doesn’t need to be the byproduct of staying safe. Whether you ...

National park posters of bad reviews

Bad reviews can be depressing but designer and illustrator Amber Share knows how to put a positive spin on even the most negative criticisms out there. Share looks at sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, Google, and Facebook to find complaints about US national parks, and then combines those negative reviews with beautiful illustrations. She calls the series “Subpar Parks,” and its Instagram account already has over 56,000 followers. The finished product is a humorous and clever way of exposing the ...

Arrival

I made a quick trip of four days to London with a friend and had a great time. I took the Eurostar which arrives at St Pancras still full of architecture from the past along with the attached hotel. This is seen as you exit the train. I liked this statue. Interesting sculpture. Here is the lobby of the St Pancras Hotel. Seen in a bar there. These stairs are all over Instagram. I had to search to find them and only got this photo as I saw a sign saying gues...

You Should NOT Visit Syria Right Now

Posted: 2/27/2020 | February 27th, 2020 If you’re like me, you associate travel with positive emotions: the feeling of the sun on your shoulders halfway around the world, of breaking bread with people from cultures different than your own, and the inner joy of making your way across unknown lands safely. Travel improves our lives, broadens our horizons, and helps us understand the world we inhabit. Yet these are experiences few humans will ever have. As widespread as it has become in recent ye...

Has Social Media Become The New And Improved Version Of Word Of Mouth? | By Michael Kessler

Technology is developing at lightning speed, but one thing that is not going to change is word of mouth. Once, people would gather at a friend's house after a trip to look at a slideshow of their holidays snaps and hash out the highs and lows, today we happily browse our friends' (and friends of friends') Facebook posts and Instagram stories. Kodak moments have become #instamoments, and while the method may have changed, the intention hasn't. People will always want to share their experie...

#untitled - 160220. This too shall pass.

Its been a while since I wrote an untitled piece (the last one was in Nov last year). Thing is, there's way too much going on in my head and I don't know who to talk to and thus this post. Super ranty. Read at peril. Ignore if you can. And why am I writing? Clear my head. Archive my thoughts. Throw my intent in the universe. So, this is one of those days when I have a mile-long list of things to do and almost no energy to get any of those done. I mean I have all the energy of a child to move aro...

27 easy ways to live sustainably in 2020 (and why you should)

It’s time to make a tiny sacrifice and live sustainably with the planet. Since she gives us everything we need to survive, it seems so stupid to actually say those words.

When you have immediate pressing issues like paying the bills, getting your kids to school on time, helping them solve an endless run of problems, and managing a house...

World's most instagrammed forests

About a third of the world’s landmass is covered in forest. And in addition to providing important stuff like the oxygen we breathe and habitats for wild animals, they also make for some downright jaw-dropping photographs. From the towering redwoods of California to the cloud forests of Costa Rica, the trees covering our planet can be our most beautiful sites when captured correctly.

Thoughts from a mehil

So, last night, I went to this musical mehfil, as the curator put it. They had three groups performing their sets. While all of those are fairly known in their circles (of musicians, producers, community, etc), I was unaware that they existed. And I was in for a surprise.The music was EXACTLY the kinds that I like. Earthy, Hindustani (mix of Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Bhojpuri, Bhajan, etc), with meaningful lyrics, played without any bells or whistles (acoustic mostly), by young people (that are not ...
