Over the Moon About Generosity, RoidWeek & the Unexpected

Snapshots, Featured


At the end of the week, I like collecting the things, links, and experiences that capture my attention. What better place to collect those things than on my blog where I can also share them with you. So, I’m announcing an ongoing post called Over the Moon About… This is the first one.

Andy Biggs – Prints for Peter

One of my favorite African wildlife photographers, Andy Biggs, has created an incredibly generous campaign for his nephew, Peter, who was diagnosed with leukemia last November. Prints for Peter will take the proceeds from Andy’s signed prints to raise money for Peter’s medical care. Check out the campaign and purchase a print before May 23.

I’m looking forward to RoidWeek 2014 — five days of celebrating Polaroid film: May 19 – May 23. If you have any type of instant camera, you can participate on Flickr here. I’ll be using my SX-70 (from 1972) and showcasing my photos in this Flickr group.

I’m over the moon about Brooklyn. This underpass art caught my eye and I captured it with my iPhone. Artist Yuko Shimizu created this octopus-tentacled “Yes!” mural that is eighty feet long and lives under Jay Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
