A concrete and fantastically old school push-button phone slide

Back at the beginning of this year, I photographed an old and wonderfully dated concrete robot. A playground addition that’s as colourful as it is retro, and if it were somehow capable of owning a phone, then the one below would be absolutely perfect. Donated to the park in 1981 by the then Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation, the slide was a gesture to mark 1.5 million subscribers in the area, along with an impressive 30,000 public phone installations. Figures that now seem as dat...

"Throughout most of the ’60s and ’70s, [Brigid Berlin] dragged her Polaroid 360 and a bulky cassette recorder everywhere, though she once said, 'No picture ever mattered, it was the clicking and pulling out that I loved.'"

"Running out of film, she insisted, was worse than running out of speed. Warhol became equally addicted to documentation and, though his pictures became more well known, hers are arguably as revelatory, often the product of double exposures and lighting both flat and vivid, and featuring such friends as Lou Reed, Roy Lichtenstein, Dennis Hopper and Cy Twombly.... Her recordings — there are more than 1,000 hours of tape... — range from the mundane (chatter about her near-constant doctors’ appoint...

What's this bird?

Photographed yesterday by Lake Mendota (in Madison, Wisconsin). I tried various "What is this bird?" websites, but I couldn't figure it out. I asked Meade, and he said "A penguin."IN THE COMMENTS: The most frequent suggestion is Eastern Kingbird, which was one of the options I saw, using bird identification websites, but I saw some differences. One reader, Bart, sent a picture of an Eastern Kingbird, the head of which I will juxtapose to my bird. I think the head shape is different (or maybe B...

Fonts, dereliction and a defunct Tokyo vending machine

This old and faded shop front with its nowhere near as old but still defunct vending machine has fascinated me for ages. It’s a scene I find hard not to photograph, but harder still has been trying to get someone suitable in the frame. The street is awkwardly narrow, and there aren’t many people passing by, so my efforts have always ended in failure. Until last week that is, when persistence finally paid off and at long last a half-decent chance presented itself.

The weeds of the morning —  milk and butterfly.

Photographed at 5:22 a.m. at my sunrise vantage point, where they were not showing color yesterday. I like the way going to the same point at the same time — sunrise — every day lets you see the exact day different flowers bloom. And I love the happenstance that caused to dairy names — butter and milk — to pop up on the same day. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

10 Pointers to Help You Improve Your Photos by Utilizing Photography Backdrops

Finding the ideal photography backdrop is one of the most challenging tasks any photographer faces. Photography backdrops, technically speaking, could be utilized to enhance the appearance of a photograph. The background of a photograph can be just as, if not more, important than the subject itself. When an image’s background complements its subject, magic occurs. Placement, angle, subject, lighting, and depth all contribute to creating an appealing image when combined with the backgrou...
