Photo(s) of the Day:Juliet Retouch by Lorena Sturlese

While the photos are Lorena Sturlese’s, I found them via the Dartmouth Photo-shop Revealing Tool (I dislike “photoshop/photo-shop” being used as a verb… but at this point it’s like calling petroleum jelly “vaseline”). From a summary of the Project available on Slate:

"The Dartmouth students and their professor developed a tool and system (described on Mashable) to create a "Photoshop rating" for any given image, so that a heavily edited image would get a five, while something untouched would be a zero. Can you imagine a world in which every advertising image or magazine fashion shoot carried, in effect, a warning level, with a "five" standing for the concept "no one really looks like this?" "

Photo of the Day: Close Relative? by Mac Haas

This is a photograph of the right paw print of a Bioko drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus poensis) taken during primate census at the Gran Caldera, Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea.

Bushmeat hunting for drills and their consequent evasion of humans means the endangered, baboon-like drills are seldom seen in the wild, and even more rarely photographed. Instead, ephemeral evidence such as this damp, hand-like paw print – left just a minute or two before it was photographed – is the only trace of a near encounter between photographer and primate. The photograph begs the question “who is watching whom?”

Photo of the Day: Scarlet by Kait M. Payne.

I’ve been following Kait Payne’s blog for a while - and I’m always in awe of just how much she nails it with every photo.  Her intention, vision, subject and technique are flawless and clear.  And the way she uses her photos to communicate (to her daughter, to the reader/viewer, and so on) is just admirable.  And impressive.

Seriously.  Check out her blog at the link above.

Also, her caption for this photo is the “Win” for the day:

"Let’s be positive for a second, shall we? Look at this kid, look at her. This is what I get to come home to every single day. Your argument is invalid.

I don’t know anything about your life and I’d love to keep it that way. However, I do know that you don’t have a Scarlet. I do. I win everything.”

Photo of the Day: From the Series “Nick, Living With Autism - 2008” by Giles Duley

"Nick lives in a world parallel to ours; distanced by his Autism and resulting depression.

In his own words, it’s as if he lives trapped in the cellar. Listening to the conversations of those above; unable to join them, unable to interact. Painfully aware of his own isolation.

Nick’s a gentle and thoughtful young man who finds self-harming to be his only form of release. Hitting himself to get ‘the right feeling’.”
