In celebration of being back and kicking this thing off right, I’ve got several links to share with y’all today.
- Urban dance photos, y’all. (Thanks for sharing these, Chase Jarvis, and for making such beautiful images, Jordan Matter.)
- Jasmine Star is offering some awesome free marketing advice in her most recent Shooting Star video.
- Earlier this week, the New York Post ran a photo of a man who was pushed into the path of an oncoming subway train, then struck and killed. There has been a lot of buzz Alex Garcia’s explanation of ethics with The Ethics of Front Page Doom was an interesting read that made me think about what I would have done in a similar situation, as well as what I value as far as ethics are concerned.
- This week, I’m really soaking in Becka’s rules for work from home balance and beginning to think that I need to set “office hours” daily.
- Justin and Mary, as always, have some fabulous advice on not comparing yourself to others and appreciating the now.
- Jamie’s observation on the photo industry over at A Man to Fish is something I’ve noticed, too, and I love his conclusion.
- Feature Shoot has a list of some original holiday gifts for photographers. Which of these would you like?
- I really need to check out HBO’s Witness, which gives a unique perspective into the lives of conflict shooters around the world.
- George Steinmetz‘s images of extreme deserts from above (found in his Desert Air book and exhibit) are stunning.
- Looking for a roundup of the Best Photography Blog Posts of 2012? Photoshelter’s got you covered with an incredibly comprehensive list broken into categories. (Be still, my organization-loving heart!)
- If you are not following the Maddie the Coonhound blog, you need to be. I giggle at the sweet photos of Maddie and try to imagine Lucy being OK with anything her owner asks her to do for the photographs. Especially this or this.
Odds & Ends
- Yep, I think these Cranberry Rosemary Spritzers need to be made this weekend.
- I absolutely loved Freaks and Geeks, and these photos of the cast reunited after 10 years makes my heart happy.
- Do you know about Striking Truths? If you don’t, you should because they are putting out some beautiful work that is inspiring every day.
- If you haven’t seen Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey and The Roots performing “All I Want for Christmas is You,” you need to fix that immediately. Stop what you’re doing and watch it now.
Here’s to a happy weekend and to more successful blogging this month. 😉
