Last Role of Kodachrome Shot

Though I shoot a lot of photos with digital cameras, I still have an appreciation for film photography that digital will never match.  That in mind, I wanted to take a break from book writing to share the National Geographic video below.  It features photographer Steve McCurry shooting the last role of Kodachrome film to come off the Kodak assembly line.

‘Horsing Around’ Proves Successful for Photog

Photographer Julian Wolkenstein proved he can be successful while “horsing around.”  Evidence can be found in his recently-publicize photographs of horses with hair extensions.

Shown at left in the photo above, a photo of a horse with chestnut-colored hair extensions accompanied an article about Wolkenstein’s work that appeared in the UK’s Telegraph newspaper yesterday.  It reminds me of a World War II-era pin-up girl.

Two other Wolkenstein photos, shown center and right in the photo above, remind me of Dolly Parton and Whoopi Goldberg, respectively, and can be found in the gallery section of Wolkenstein’s web site.

The site also includes a variety of quirky, unusual and interesting photos, including several interesting attempts to show humans appearing as if they’re living in small enclosures (i.e., a bird cage, an aquarium, a fish bowl, etc.).  Interesting shots all; I encourage you to check them out.
