Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton shot this hauntingly beautiful video in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France starring pro snowboarder William Hughes who dons a special suit laden with white LEDs.
For years, there have been things near the top of my bucket list that I will never reorder. Things that no matter what phase of my life I am in, will always be something I will want to cross off. One of those things, is to skate the Mystery Alaska skate (Surprised, right?) [beginning of clip]
The other, is to witness the flying lanterns in Poznan, Poland (also done annually at the Ping Xi Festival in Taiwan). What, in my mind, is one of, if not, the most beautiful things the human culture organizes, the lanterns are released each year on the summer solstice.
As written earlier today:
These images are from the city of Poznan, Poland, where 11,000 lanterns took the skies like a swarm of glowing jellyfishes, pushed into the air by the flames burning inside their nimble bodies.
This is a beauty that most cannot fathom. It is something that America would never be able to do. But to be in the middle of an event like this, to release a lantern and watch it sail into the night sky… it is something I have to do one day.
While growing up the hockey player I was, and it being such a big part of my life still, that skate may be my number two on the list. But that’s only because this is my number one.
p.s. Photojojo’s hiring!!! Both in & outside of SF. Web developers, photographer, store buyer, and freelance writers.
I’ve been seeing different pieces lately all centered around this same concept. I’ve been really interested in trying something like this out. I’ve got the steady hand for it. I wield an xacto like nobody. Plus, black paper, mounted on white, in a frame would just be a gorgeous decorative piece for my wall haha
Last night, the Boston Bruins won their sixth Stanley Cup, by defeating the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 in game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Amidst the celebration from fans of the original six team, the people of Vancouver demonstrated their feelings in a completely different fashion. While riots broke out across the beautiful town, cops flooded in to find some type of order among the chaos. Scattered within the mess, was Rich Lam.
Lam, a photojournalist, who was lucky enough to catch what has quickly become one of the more recognizable photos of the last several years.
This picture above, has been circulating the interwebs like wildfire. What is sure to be a multiple award winning photo, is simply beautiful. When someone can capture so much, in one single still image, they are doing something that most can only dream to do.
The lighting is perfect. The focus is spot on. You can sense what is going on around the city; but you can also understand that there is more than that. There is peace at times (wherever those Bruins fans are at least).
This photo is going to live on. Lam captured a moment that will become an instant classic. This image is not going to go away. And for whoever the man and woman are… they will be forever immortalized like this - just as George Mendonça and Edith Shain have been in the iconic Eisenstaedt V-J Day photograph.
An incredibly beautiful photo. To only be lucky enough to have captured the moment.
