Alzheimer's is the cleverest thief

Alzheimer's is the cleverest thief “She is leaving him, not all at once, which would be painful enough, but in a wrenching succession of separations. One moment she is here, and then she is gone again, and each journey takes her a little farther from his reach. He cannot follow her, and he wonders where she goes when she leaves.” ― Debra Dean, The Madonnas of Leningrad ...

One Minute On Earth 2015


One Minute On Earth 2015 We are less than 2 weeks away from the One Minute on Earth 2015! This is a first of a quick set of points and facts I will be posting here to help us all be prepared and get the most out of the project! 1. What is One Minute on Earth 2015 (OMOE 2015)? Is a photography project hosted by in which photographers from all over the world synchronize to take photos of where they happen to be or choose to be on the One Minute. The idea is to picture the Earth we live in that unique minute—a collaborative simultaneous worldwide panorama! 2. When is OMOE 2015? OMOE 2015 will take place on 10 October 2015 from 10:10 am until 10:11 am United Kingdom time. In the past we have used GMT or UTC times to announce the One Minute, but people were confused as the UK changes its time during the summer to GMT+1, UTC+1 (mind boggling, I know), and we missed some good shots because of this. In any case, if you like using UTC, the time of the One Minute will be UTC 09:10. 3. How do I find out when I should take my photos for OMOE 2015? You can check the time difference from where you will be to the UK time or use this link: We will be posting the times for several major cities in the days before the project for further guidance. 4. Do I have to be a professional photographer to participate in OMOE 2015? No, OMOE 2015 is open to photographers from all levels and styles. Please sign up for the project at and invite your friends, no matter where they are! Do your best to get high-quality photos for the project. 5. Do I have to upload the photos I take on the One Minute right away, on the same One Minute? No. We expect many of the participants to be traveling or in places where there may not be internet or telephone access when they take their photographs. What is important is to take the photos in the One Minute. You will have at least a week to download and edit your photos before you upload them into the project's page at 6. What happens to the photos I take and submit for OMOE 2015? All photos will be voted among the participants in the project and will be displayed at the website (you can see those from OMOE 2013 and OMOE 2014 in the Photobooks tab). The best photos from each time zone and world region will go into a photography book. The copyright, other than the uses related to the project and project book, remains with you. 7. What type of photos should I take? All styles are welcomed. Only guideline is that the photos should be outdoors so that the photo reflects the time of day and weather where you were on the One Minute and that your camera's time is checked beforehand so the photos contain the information (and geotagging if you have it) of where you where on the One Minute. So landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, street shots, etc, are all welcome! You can take a look at what other photographers did in 2013 and 2014 in the website. We have had great photos from people fishing at sea during the night, people riding on their cars in the Canadian prairies, etc! Just be ready to shoot on the One Minute! 8. What if the weather changes where I was planning to shoot for OMOE 2015? Have a plan B in place depending on potential weather conditions where you will be. In our experience, plan Bs have worked out awesomely for many in past projects! 9. Why participate in OMOE 2015? it is an exhilarating and bonding project to take part on! Most importantly, each year the proceeds from the sponsorships of the project and sales OMOE book of are given to a particular charity that is selected each year for the project. 10. Who will benefit from the OMOE 2015 project? In 2013, the funds obtained with the book went to help street children in Kolkata. In 2014, we were able to obtain 2 sponsorships and provide great help to an Orphanage in South Africa. This year we are looking to help a charity involved with relief efforts for children and families displaced by war in the Middle East. We have not yet decided on a final charity to support yet. Please let us know if you have one in mind! Have a great Sunday and spread the word about the project to all your photography friends! Francisco ...

Galactic Dream


Bun Lee A wonderful dark night at Two Jake Lakes in Banff National Park. The milkyway is bright even those Banff is just right behind the trees where the milkyway touching the ground is. They really done a great job on keeping the light pollution down. Allow capturing the starry night sky with wonderful lights lighten up Mount Rundle in the middle. The direct lights just beside the trees under Mount Rundle are some campers. The orange tinted colour on most of the clouds is coming from Canmore which the light pollution is much higher. The 25 sec exposure only captured the night sky and mountains, but not the lake and rocks in the foreground. So I took another shot for that and put them together. Thanks for viewing! ...

S.Bartolomeu do Mar - Portugal

S.Bartolomeu do Mar - Portugal Dia 24 de Agosto realiza-se a famosa romaria a São Bartolomeu-do-Mar, santo padroeiro da freguesia. A tradição remonta ao século XVI e consiste em dar voltas à Igreja com um pinto (os locais dizem pito) preto ao colo, passar por baixo do andor e depois ir à praia "furar" ondas em número ímpar, ou seja, três, cinco, sete ou nove (Banho Santo). Tudo isto para que as crianças ficassem afastadas de efeitos demoníacos: gota, epilepsia e gaguez. ...

One Thousand Feet Down

One Thousand Feet Down We chose Horseshoe Overlook south of Page, Arizona, because it is a classic image of the Southwest. In addition, the 36% crescent moon would be hanging right above the horizon at the moment of truth. The overlook is about a 4½ hour drive from home, plus, being on the Navajo reservation, It would be an hour ahead of Phoenix, which does not observe Daylight Savings Time. There had been a huge landslide the year before which required a detour onto an unfamiliar road, and we found ourselves behind schedule, and would barely make it to the trailhead in time to climb the sand filled ¾ mile to the edge and our shooting spot. As we got to the end of the detour, our GPS said to turn right, but that didn't seem correct, so I decided to pull off the road and double check our information. What looked like the perfect spot turned into the perfect nightmare as the car sunk almost to the axles in fine red dust. The clock was ticking, and no amount or rocking, gear changing, or wheel turning would get us out. Just as we were about to grab the camera gear and tripod and start running south to our destination, a Navajo family in a pickup truck saw our plight and quickly maneuvered into position to pull us out. Minutes later we were on terra firma, and, after exchanging names, handshakes and our heartfelt thanks, we were once again on our way. Pulling into the parking lot, we grabbed our gear and charged up the hill like Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders, slid down the back side and got to our vantage point with moments to spare. There was time for a few panoramas, a test shot or two, and the moment was upon us! Click, click, click, and the deed was done. It had all passed in a blur. Regarding the image, the tiny speck of white in the center on the far side of the river below is actually a boat, which gives some sense of the immensity of scale to this image. The color of the river, a deep emerald green is due to algae and the severe drought conditions currently prevalent in the Southwest. The Colorado, which means "red colored" is, in wetter years, a deep rusty color from the silt which is carried into the river from run-off from the drainage area which is predominantly Navajo Sandstone. ...

Tension This was a memorable shot for me since i was able to capture the kids playing while an airplane was preparing to land. I was able to anticipate the landing of the plane while the kids were playing. I framed the subjects in such a way that it would present opposing forces on both sides. One kid pulling another one to the left and the plane landing to the right. It was really an intense moment. ...
