weblog and other "crap stuff" of Fraser Lewry
Fraser supports his friendly "penguin cousins" and hopes his donations aren't going to feeding the cows or some other non-penguiny critters. The "photographic evidence" of his last visit to the zoo was the subject of his most recent post. Further evidence of his affection for our little tuxedoed friends can be found earlier in the month as well. It's not all penguins, though. Fraser writes about (and points to) all kinds of amusing things and the archives go back to December, 2000. And it's not all weblog, either. Some of Fraser's "crap stuff" is neat, like a recently added feature called "vent" and the "about" page is very humorous. Look! An even fresher attraction just appeared on the crap stuff list as I was wrapping this up. You're on your own now... ;~))

creative photography gallery
Like yesterday, today's pick is a gallery featuring the works of a Portuguese photographer. She calls herself "nirvana blue" and I call her work creative photography. "We are not separate from spirt, we are in it." A series called "the pain" combines poetic thoughts with what appears to be self-portraits, talking of a "broken soul" in "desperate hours." Quite moving. If you like Lomography, there's several outstanding series for you in the "lomos" section. Add a section of "landscapes" plus several other series, which are just as creative/emotive as "the pain." I like the simplicity of the design and the navigation, too. Thanks Sónia!

Photo portfolio of a graphic designer from Colombia. Urban and experimental photos in Bogota. (Flash)
There's something about close-up, black & white photos of classic cars that I find really appealing, especially when the photographer has an eye for composition. Color shots of buildings, street posters and signage unique to a given geographical area are cool, too. Add a few striking black & white portraits, among other things, and you've got a great photo site. Jorge, a graphic designer, takes pictures in an around Bogota, Columbia. An interesting window...

a virtual community of digital artists (Quicktime) (some mature content)
The most recent work in this collection of 6 Quicktime movies is a "symetrical composition of shapes, colors and objects" called "Bleip: Clicks." Everyday objects take on "a new existence" and the "dynamic music" track seems the perfect accompaniment for the dance of the "beings." The work really is amazing and beyond the above description, using some of their words, I'm not sure what else I can say. You have to experience art like this first hand. The "virtual community" of 3D artists, musicians and graphic designers has some bigtime talent. The 4 movies I've viewed so far were totally enjoyable... (some mature content)
