Five Photo Links for Mid-September

• 1: National Geographic has a new website to highlight their great photography. This is what they say: "FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public."

Some images are beautiful, some are historical, and many are both. You could keep scrolling for days. There are some amazing photos in this collection, and many of them are for sale. Check it out here.

"The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge from Yerba Buena Island in 1936."

"Teenage girls in bathing suits and caps pose on a dock in Brandenburg, Germany, March 1928."

"Astronaut Neil Armstrong floats in his space suit in a pool of water in 1967."

"Scientists take samples to study radioactive discharges in the Susquehanna River in Maryland, March 1985."

• 2: On the anniversary of 9/11 last week, Esquire online re-published an article (first published 10 years ago) about this horrific photo:

• 3: Hasselblad just opened it's first retail store in Japan.

• 4: An article from Forbes Magazine about one of my photography favorites: Joel Sternfeld.

• 5: Two related posts (here and here) talk about the lost art of darkroom printing with some iconic celebrity portraits.

Abraham Lincoln on Photography (and Your Face)

This is an actual Lincoln quote. Really. I'm not joking.

Start of a New Semester

I recently Instagrammed this with the caption "My new home."

I even have a little presence on the Faculty and Staff page on the Hamline website:

Well it's obvious that I need a new "professional" photo of myself. That selfie from 7 years ago isn't cutting it anymore....
