We received this link from a fellow camera friend, to a page of photos taken by Timothy O'Sullivan in the late 1800s.
We thought this was the perfect place to post it where it would really be appreciated.
The pictures were taken, one must keep in mind, when photogaphy was truly barely out of infancy!
It's getting harder and harder to distinguish between digital creations and actual film.
We find the real intriguing aspect of this digital creation is in how an individual's mind actually works to come up with this kind of presentation.

Impersonators have long been taking the stage providing us sound and visual resemblances of many of the performances by stars from another day. This impersonator, Ben Portsmouth, is possibly as good as Elvis impersonators get.
Have a look and a listen for yourself.

A MUST READ TO APPRECIATE . . .
Full moon over Wellington, NZ... Here is something a bit random, but none-the-less astounding. A friend of ours who is also a photographer captured what is, to us, one of the most remarkable
things we have ever seen filmed.
It is a 3 minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington. It was shot on a calm summer evening, as people gathered on the Mt. Victoria Lookout point to watch the moon rise.
This stunning video is one single real-time shot, with no manipulation whatsoever. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2 kilometres from the Lookout point, and was shot with the equivalent of a 1300mm lens.
The amount of planning, trial and error, and luck that went into this are mind blowing. He has been trying to capture this for over a year with many failed attempts. But recently it seems everything was on his side, and it all came together in a way even he couldn't have hoped.
We honestly can't say enough good things about this video - from the magnitude of the visuals, to the intimate stories playing out with the people, to the sheer humbling nature of seeing the awe-inspiring reality of this giant rock in the sky that we so often don't stop to appreciate.
One thing we encourage you to do is watch this on the biggest screen you have - don't waste it on an iphone screen.
We're told that into retirement brain teasers are a great way to ward off the possibility of alzhiemer's disease. So here's one we've been working on figuring out for some time now, but to date just can't crack the "how does he do that?" And we do remember where to get to the puzzle, so in our case it just might be working! Check it out for yourself at
