Check out these fantastic old shots that have had just a dash of life beautifully dripped back into them. Hard to imagine but these have been digitally recoloured by hand(mouse) using little more than a few other photos for some reference and a natural eye for colours. Surely that must be the 2013 equivalent of breaking out that 10,000 piece jigsaw of baked beans that’s been gathering dust under the stairs since 1999. In other words, I’d have no idea, no patience and probably no ability in mounting this E Everest.
I love the wee boy from the blitz, and I think Hepburn and Goebbels are absolutely heart-stopping, but obviously for quite different reasons.
Cracking stuff for those weary eyes here from Italian photographer Manuel Cosentino. This series of landscapes were taken from the exact same spot over stretch of two years. The changes in light and the weather are an incredible contrast against that little house…wonder what’s inside?
Strikingly urban and unmistakably cold, this Lights in Chicago series from Chicago-based Japanese photographer Satoki Nagata somehow pulls through a little snippet of urban beauty through it’s innovative lighting and completely natural transparency. Fantastic ghost-like loveliness, and well worth a look through the rest of the series.
There are several things you could do with your life if you wanted to lose 13 minutes. You could microwave something meaty and mysterious from a leading supermarché. You could polish a shoe. You could iron half a shirt (yes, it takes me 30 minutes to iron a shirt). Or, you could watch these utterly mesmeric shots here courtesy of Michael Langan in his short film, Choros. I’ve watched it about four times now, so it’s probably best I iron that bloody shirt.
Gorgeous lighting installation from the Belem Cultural Centre, Lisbon. Intended to debunk the belief that LEDs aren’t quite as pretty as their filamented counterparts, I’d say they’ve just about hit the brief here.
Absolutely stunning and completely un-manipulated shots of the full moon rising over Mount Victoria in Wellington, New Zealand. Amazingly, the video was taken recorded from the other side of the city, 2.1km away. Fabulous stuff from Mark Gee.
A fantastic shot this. I know nothing about where it is, when it was shot, whether the photographer was wearing mittens, but it’s a looker.
