This Time write-up on the Condition ONE photojounalism ecosystem is extremely interesting. Basically, it’s an iPad app combined with a custom ultra-wide-angle camera that allows a journalist to film action then pan around it for story-telling purposes. Of course, that probably doesn’t make a lot of sense, so just follow the link and there’s a nifty video that shows the system being used. Condition ONE App: A New Way to Photograph War? – LightBox.
As you may know, I’m an avid iPhone user and burgeoning Apple fanboy (I finally made the leap last October and bought a Mac…best computer I’ve ever owned. When they say “it just works”, they mean it). One of the best parts about owning an iPhone are the thousands and thousands of apps available, including photo-related apps. Today, I want to touch on just a few of these and let you know why I love them so much. Camera+ (On sale for a limited time for 99¢) This is a great replacement for...
If you’ve been following my photoblog for a while, you know that I’ve posted a few photos of one of my favorite buildings in Dallas, the Statler Hilton (aka The Dallas Grand Hotel): Built in 1956 and once considered the most luxurious hotel in the Southwest, it’s sat abandoned since 2001.

Ever since I moved to Dallas ten years ago, it’s beckoned me with its storied past of celebrities and showgirls, not...
Adonis Pulatus posted this video to Vimeo he made while sailing from New York to the Caribbean on the Queen Mary 2 in December.

I’ll be honest, I’ve never liked Peter Lik. I’ve been to a few of his galleries in Vegas and have always come away feeling like there’s nothing all that special about his photos–they’re just giant, well-processed postcards. But I will give him this, he knows how to market himself. PETER LIK PHOTOGRAPH “ONE” SELLS FOR $1 MILLION!.
…that make my blood boil. Thomas Hawk is being sued for $2M for posting non-commercial photos he took at the World Erotic Art Museum in Miami. In totally unrelated news, I’m booking a flight to Miami. Here’s his blog post: Thomas Hawk Digital Connection » Blog Archive » The World Erotic Art Museum in Miami is Trying to Sue Me for $2 Million for Posting Photos I Took There on My Flickr Account.
Just before Dwayne’s stopped developing Kodachrome last week, a guy dropped off almost 1600 rolls of it to be processed. $15,780 later, he had 15,000 photos of trains he’d shot over the years. See the story here: Last Kodak Kodachrome Prints Developed in Kansas | News & Opinion | PCMag.com.
I’ve got another photo in the latest ADIDAP Flickr Round, so I’d appreciate your vote again (I don’t win anything…just a smug sense of self satisfaction). It’s the pic below (photo #2 on the poll). Thanks! ADIDAP Flickr Round [2010-10-09]
