Multiple exposure cubism

Z0220131

My Flickr contact Christophe FROT took this (these) multiple exposures with his Ricoh GR. One of the many hidden features of the Ricoh GR is the ability to take multiple exposures which is unusual for a point and shoot digital camera. This is all done in-camera. This looks like at least four if not more exposures of the same image, slightly offset to give it a cubist look.

A Japanese Photographer’s View of Life in His Family’s One-Room Home

A Japanese Photographer’s View of Life in His Family’s One-Room Home

Meoko Fujii at The New Yorker has posted an incredible collection of the photographs of the Japanese photographer Masaki Yamamoto that are part of his new photo book: Guts.

Guts documents his seven-person family’s life in a one-room apartment in Kobe, Japan. This is a gritty but fascinating glimpse of a kind of life that few of us will ever experience but it’s not so foreign that we can’t imagine it. This is amazing work and once the book is in wider circulation I hope to get it.

Kilauea eruption aerial footage

May 19, 2018 Pele's March to the Pacific Local News from Mick Kalber on Vimeo.

Mick Kalber has a number of amazing aerial videos of the Kilauea Volcano eruption on the big island of Hawaii. This is remarkable footage shot from a helicopter on May 19th.

“An unbelievable amount of lava is erupting from fissures below Leilani Estates on the Big Island of Hawaii! More than twenty cracks are issuing red hot liquid rock, which is coursing downhill, destroying homes, cars, roads… and anything else in her path. The fissures have now joined forming a “curtain of fire” in a spectacular display. Numerous fingers of lava have stretched toward the sea overnight, and this morning were only about a mile from the water. Over forty homes have been destroyed since the eruption began fifteen days ago. Although it began in Leilani and burned several homes there, she soon established her vents below the subdivision with towering fountains, spatter cones feeding gigantic lava flows. So far, no deaths have been reported. First responders have evacuated several residents who had become trapped by the fast moving flows. Pohoiki Road has been covered with lava, but Highways 132 and 137 are still open as of this writing. If she continues at the same rate we saw this morning, she may cross the “Red Road,” and make the ocean by tonight or tomorrow. No lava is currently erupting in the Leilani Estates subdivision. Mahalo to the kind folks at Paradise Helicopters… they offer the finest charters in the islands!”

Sady

This incredible video is on Apple’s site today because it’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day.

The video starts showing Sady Paulson who uses a switch or switches to control her Mac. It then shows various other kinds of accessibility built into Apple products. Then, it zooms out to show who’s editing the video. It’s brilliant.

I worked with Apple’s disabilities group in the 1980s and 1990s and we did amazing stuff but Apple has come a long way since and it pays off daily for folks with various access issues who want to use Apple’s tools.
