Holga Photos from Israel

Last month, I was sent to Israel by Kinetis. I brought my Holga and shot a few rolls on the trip:

Jerusalem's "Old City."

Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Wall around Jerusalem's "Old City."

Near the site of the Last Supper.

Wall around Jerusalem's "Old City."

Spring-fed pond in the middle of the desert.

Mountains at Timna National Park.

Timna: people hiking back from exploring the oldest copper mines in the world.

North shore of the Red Sea.

The Mediterranean Sea from Tel Aviv.

Thanks for sending me Kinetis! I did the Israman half iron distance triathlon as a relay while I was there - click here to read my race report from the Red Sea on my "triathlon blog."

Four February Photo Links

• 1: "Indulgd" recently showed 36 Realistically Colorized Historical Photos. The color images seem to make the past not seem that long ago.

Old Gold Country store, 1939

Washington D. C., 1921

Abraham Lincoln, 1865

Mark Twain, circa 1900

• 2: Philip Gefter from The New York Times recently wrote an article called "With Cameras Optional, New Directions in Photography."

Here's a bit from the article:

The shift of focus from fact to fiction, and all the gradations in between, is perhaps the largest issue in the current soul-searching underway in photography circles. Questions swirl: Can the “captured” image (taken on the street — think of the documentary work of Henri Cartier-Bresson) maintain equal footing with the “constructed” image (made in the studio or on the computer, often with ideological intention)?

Museums, for their part, are debating whether photography should remain an autonomous medium or be incorporated into a mash-up of disciplines in contemporary art. And photography curators, too, are questioning the quality and validity of new practices, as the ever-morphing ubiquity of social media challenges the singularity of the photographic image.

“The biggest problem facing curators and historians of photography,” Mr. Bajac said, “is the overflow of images.”

• 3: There's a new product on the market for cleaning your dSLR sensor that claims it "is used professionally by many service centers, including Leica’s." I just ordered the "Sensor Gel Stick," and I'll report back when I try it:

• 4: Finally, for some fun, there's a website called Photographs Rendered in Play-Doh. It contains, well, you know...

The Butterfly Boy, New York 1949 by Jerome Liebling

New Digital Media Lab at Hamline

No, I don't have a new classroom, but there's a lab that's just a few months old that is a fantastic place for my students to work. I had a meeting in this lab yesterday, and it's primarily a video and animation classroom. This is in the basement of the Bush Library on campus:

There are 5 "stations" like this that have 4 computers each, and all have a large Sharp Aquos screen above it that mirrors what's on the instructors screen. Or the instructor can hit a button to have those screen display any 1 of the 20 student computers to show the class what they are working on.

Pretty nice for a basement classroom.

A regal view of "Old Main" out the windows and across the quad.
