photos, living in London (Flash)
Paul Richardson, originally from New Zealand, arrived in London just about a year ago and the site presents a dozen photoseries done since then. His most recent views from walking home is a series of night shots along the Thames – very nice! I also enjoyed his shots of some rather well-known faces, taken in a famous wax museum. There's also several series taken in Paris, plus a bonus link today, Paul's old web playground from back home with even more cool photos... [Newstoday® PBS]

les particules étranges 1/20/07 Description:
'strange particles' plus color and black & white photography
There's actually 3 directions to take from the main page of today's pick. Enter leads to a weblog written mostly in French but full of cool photos, which Jean-François calls his (Photo)blog. There's additional galleries in the Images section and more textual content in Sciences. But those other 2 directions lead to his 2 photoblogs, one all color and the other, black & white. Superb. And a final thought. "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent..."
jottkah photoblog 1/12/07 Description:
an effort to post one picture per day
The site's been on the web for about a year now. Julia started the photoblog after buying a new DSLR, hoping it would "force" her to "photograph a lot" with the new camera. She's got other cameras though, including a Holga and another yummy camera from the 50s. And speaking of yummy, what a stunning night shot!

DepicT! 1/10/07 Description:
the short film competition, which challenges budding filmmakers from around the world to make mini-masterpieces of under 90 seconds
Imagine what you might do if you made a movie only 90 seconds long. You just might Go Mental. And if your lifespan was really short, perhaps speed-dating would be in order. "Can you tell a story in 90 seconds?" – a most entertaining collection of very short films... [NOTCOT]
Urban Projection 1/9/07 Description:
art projected in public spaces
"The aim was to be as mobile as possible and not to spend too much money." Armed with a laptop, video projector, and power generator, this new breed of street artist looks for just the right wall. No foul, no damage – moving pictures as streetart, "similar to a performance" and "only shown at the actual moment of projection." How cool is that!

photography by Amsterdam based artist Peter Gerritsen
As an artist, Peter is fascinated by such concepts as the secluded space, breaking of light, and unsatisfied. And as a photographer, having posted over 40 images since the end of November, he is certainly an artist...

photography and digital artwork (Flash)
The collection of 37 photos that Manuel calls "a small overview of [his] photographic work" is so magnificent, all I can do is sit here totally inspired and hope you take the time to take them in. The art of photography, as good as it gets!
