New York City in the 1940s - amazingly the photograph has not been colourised or artificially sharpened
I'm a little jealous of the stacks of books you guys photograph
Anyone else a diehard library user? I buy almost no books. And the ones I do buy are usually for gifts, or when I occasionally get the bug and splurge on some books at a used book store just for the fun of it, but that's about it. Otherwise, all my books are from the library and returned as soon as I finish reading them.
I'd love to see what my years' worth of books looks like all stacked up, but I guess I'll never know. Last year I read 80 books. That would have cost me at least $1000 if I had purchased them all. My library keeps a tally of the value of the books you borrow in the year, and because my card is used for myself, my husband, and three kids, it adds up. We ended last year over $13,000 in value borrowed.
Photograph of Lawrence Bittaker and William Bonin on death row in San Quentin
Chaohu Lake, China in 2009. The algal bloom made this photograph look like a water painting.
A clear example of the Third Reichs indoctrination of the youth of Germany: Shown are two photographs of a German veteran, as a child in the Deutsches Jungvolk, another years later as a Panzer crewman during the war. This was a common narrative of German youths born in the 20’s and 30’s [OC]

I recently got to visit and photograph a NASA facility. This is my favorite image from the visit.

Pfc George A. Guckenberger, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division in his foxhole during the siege of Bastogne. This photograph is probably the last picture of him, as he was KIA 76 years ago, on January 14th, 1945 at the age of 22.

[David Lynch]- No sign of Joel Matip in photographs from #LFC's training session today. In a race against time to face Manchester United now - even if he were to train in the next couple of days, would Jurgen Klopp deem it worth risking him for one game? twitter.com/dmlynch/statu…
YSK that the best time to photograph your Christmas lights is at dusk, not when it's fully dark out.
Why YSK: I see so many absolutely horrible photos of holiday decorations that people have clearly spent a lot of hard work on. Put your best foot forward when photographing them to share with family, friends, and internet strangers!
Photographing your lights at night just makes for a lopsided exposure - either the lights look okay and everything else is really dark, or the scene looks right but the lights are blown out. Go outside at dusk and photograph your lit-up display then; you'll see all of the lights looking beautiful and you'll also get a nice glow from the rest of the photo (your house, your yard, etc).
Obviously using a tripod and a manual camera can help even more, but timing your photographs this way is the easiest way to get significantly better looking pictures of your sweet holiday displays even if you're just taking pictures with your phone.
edit: wow, I did not expect such a large response to this. I'm still not entirely clear on what the little awards do, but they made me smile, so thanks internet strangers!
Does anyone have more angles of this subject? I may have a lead (already reported it), but I'm looking for more angles to help confirm/deny. He's "photograph #34" in the FBI lineups
