I have been pondering this for quite a long time now.
Should I post good stories from around the web, other peoples work and interesting external links here on the Blog?
Of course all photography , videography and so on related…
Well… I decided on YES! You know freshen things up a little, bring some more and other inspiration to the Blog.
I twitter a lot of stuff and post things on my Facebook timeline, but those can a get a little cluttered with other stuff
also. One thing I am not 100 percent sure about is how often “The missing Link” will be published, once a week for
example, every time there is a good story and so on, but I guess I will figure it out along the way. Also posting at least
one new photo by me along the way. The shot above was taken near the Rhine and the Bike was luckily just all
alone standing there. I have no clue though what kinda bid that is though, so if you have a clue, let me know.
While we are at it… I am also thinking about killing my Facebook Fanpage, as those of you who have liked or visited it
know it’s not really filled with life. I feel stupid just connecting the blog directly to it and post only links, also posting what
I post on my regular Facebook profile and to be honest I am not having any good ideas of what to do with it. Especially
since you can subscribe to peoples Facebook profiles. Any ideas on this? I appreciate any kind of insight!
So lets get to the fun part.
The next two things I also talked about in my not photography related german language podcast “the Knutsens”
The first thing I want to show you is something fantastic I found on the Lomography Blog. The Pinhegg by Francesco Capponi.
A Pinhole-camera made out of an eggshell. Yip, I said eggshell. You can read about the whole process in the Blogpost over
Let me say one thing… this is the COOLEST thing I have seen in years. Forget the bloody D4s and 5Dmk3s, megapixels and
all the other bullshit. This guy takes photos with an EGGSHELL!!! I still have a plan to build a little Filmlab in my studio to
develop my own black and white photos, but this Pinhegg… this I NEED to try out. I can’t wait to have my own egg prints.
It has something so strangely exciting and mysterious, scifi, but old school. Crude, but sophisticated. You get the idea, I
mean just look at these, this hits all the right nerves with me.
Another story that got me smiling and blew my mind a little is what I found over at PetaPixel.
Filmmaker Casey Neistat of internet fame, until now mostly trough this video:
was hired to do, he spend all the money on a trip around the world for him and a buddy… well kinda. Here is what came out of it:
Hilarious and fantastic. over 3 million views on Youtube already. Think out of the box… makes sense as it seems.
Mornings lecture series. Enjoy and have a great day.
