Benoit Paillé’s LSD Photos

I have been a fan of Benoit Paillé’s ever since seeing his series on the Rainbow Gatherings a few years back (Photography at Rainbow Family gatherings is typically frowned upon). But I had somehow missed this great set. Benoit Paillé explains it as such:

After taking LSD. I lighting up a candle in the middle of the wood and during the exposure, i make a meditation about the holism of nature surrounding me. Feeling the crystal vibration irradiating from the center of the Gaia mother earth. So in this picture i try to show you the magic,sacred metaphysical quality of the nature and new age bullshiting you .

As always, click for Hi-Res.

2,800 Tumblr Images

You may not know that I have a tumblr blog. It’s filled with images strike some sort of emotional chord with me. Some are beautiful, some are frightening, some are NSFW, some are nostalgic, some are funny and some are gross. Right now it’s a collection on over 2,800 images and it grows everyday. The video above is a compilation of many of the images found there. If you’d like, you can follow me on tumblr. If you already follow me I’d appreciate it if you recommended me.

The video was created using the new pummelvision service.

Finding Your Best Photos Of The Year On Flickr

It is getting close to that time of year when we try to determine what we did best during the year. For some of us that includes determining the best photos that we took over the year. If you have uploaded all of your photos to Flickr this is a real easy way to do this.

The Short Version

The Long Version
http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=&m=text&s=int&d=taken-20100101-20101231&w=me
The above links search through all photos (empty query q=), in text mode (m=text). It uses Flickr’s “Interestingness” algorithm to determine your best photos (s=int, interestingness is indeed a bit arbitrary, but then again so is the word ‘best’), between the dates of 2010/01/01 and 2010/12/31, and limited to photos taken by “me” (w=me).

Coachella Porn

Photographer Thomas Brodahl says of the set of photos taken at Coachella back in 2007:

While waiting for Red Hot Chili Peppers to come on stage. I was standing in the photo pit shooting the crowd. Everyone was so sweaty and naked. Looked like a big orgy. Albeit not a very pleasurable one 🙂

While this set was taken way back in 2007, I’m still a little surprised that people care this hard about the Chili Peppers. Anywaste, it’s a great view of the inside (the band) looking out (at the audience).
