…It’s Movie Monday: Surface?

Surface

Surface is an experimental film, exploring the emotional journey from an underground urban perspective.

This ‘urban symphony’ transforms human actions and street objects into beats that harmoniously compose a grand audio and visual composition. The film emphasizes the ideas of ‘point of contact’, ‘human identity’ and notion of ‘live footprints’.

…The clouds glow at night under airplanes?

Glowing Night Video

On a recent flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco, Flickr user Ettubrute noticed that the night lights from the cities were flowing beneath the clouds and making them glow in a spectacular and ethereal way: “It was really seeing the impact of urban environments from a different perspective.”

To capture and share this experience, he set up an improvised stabilizer mound out of bags, pillows and blankets for the camera to sit on, and took about three hours of photographs that he condensed into about a minute of time lapse video.

…It’s Website Wednesday: 1 Millimeter A Day?

1 Millimeter A Day

Chris Hornbecker took on a rather unique project for 2008: He wanted to take a photograph each day using a focal length that was one millimeter more than the previous day’s photo. Starting at 14mm and working his way all the way up to 389mm, the project was called 1 Millimeter A Day, and definitely forced him to look at things from a different perspective.

Take a look through the archives to see what he created, because there’s definitely some inspiring stuff in there for anyone that spends their time behind the lens.

…You can do Washington, DC on $85 a day?

Washington, DC On $85 A Day

While traveling around Washington, DC, Flickr user Musely had an interesting idea called Washington, DC on $85 a Day.

Since the US $5, $10, $20, and $50 bills all feature buildings that are located in Washington (the Lincoln Memorial, US Treasury, White House and Capitol buildings respectively) he walked around until he found the place wither each illustration was made, lined up the bill, and snapped away.

It’s old meets new in a very interesting sort of way.
