That’s right, folks. Friday Favorites. I’m starting this new little feature to showcase work I’ve seen around the Internet that is wonderful, as well as any other things I might like (this week), find amusing, beautiful, sad, encouraging, etc.
Because what better way is there to end the week than spotlighting some things that inspire me and make me smile?
Let’s hit this thing off right:
Canon announced the 1D Mark IV. Que drooling and crooning over a camera body that is ENTIRELY too expensive for a newspaper shooter. (A girl can dream, though, right?) Here’s to hoping the AF isn’t wonky like the Mark IIIs were/are.
Tear alert: TIME showcases an amazing photo essay called “Strays to the Rescue” on their Web site, featuring images and clips from a new book (To the Rescue: Found Dogs with a Mission, by Elise Lufkin and photos by Diana Walker.) Check it out here.
To my AP Style-loving friends: @FakeAPStylebook has made me chuckle for the past day.
AP shooter Brennan Linsley was quoted on the NYT Lens blog yesterday on the Pictures of the Day post. Not only are the images strong, but his words ring true about the impact of photography.
To my shooter friends, have fun at high school football tonight. (I know I will!) And to everyone else, enjoy your evening off, whatever you may end up doing!
Happy Friday, everyone!
