Photography Makes Good Blog Fodder

Got this pic­ture today from the Musée de l’Elysée in Lau­sanne, Switzer­land show­ing one of my work in their ‘We are all pho­tog­ra­phers now!’ exhib­it. You too can be part of the exhib­it. All you have to do is sub­mit your work using this form.

Speak­ing of pho­to exhibits, I sub­mit­ted a pic­ture to the JPG Mag­a­zine some time ago. Click­ing the JPG Mag­a­zine vote box in the side­bar will bring you to my sub­mis­sion. The theme I sub­mit­ted it to is Break­through. If enough peo­ple vot­ed for it, not only will it be pub­lished in JPG Issue 10, it will also be hung in the San Fran­cis­co Arts Com­mis­sion Gallery. So if you liked the pic­ture, your vote would be very much appre­ci­at­ed. Please pret­ty please with sug­ar on top? ;)

Speak­ing of mag­a­zines, I already men­tioned before that anoth­er one of my work will be pub­lished in anoth­er mag­a­zine. The mag­a­zine is called Pho­to­sho. It exhibits the pho­tog­ra­phy of Cana­di­an pho­tog­ra­phers. I’m not Cana­di­an, but they let me join in the fun any­way, just by liv­ing and tak­ing pic­tures here. :) Any­way, the inde­pen­dent mag­a­zine needs your sup­port to make it to the next issue, so if you have any inter­est in pho­tog­ra­phy at all, please buy a copy!

And speak­ing of pub­li­ca­tions, a cou­ple of weeks back I found through the Indone­sia Tech blog that Weblog Wannabe was men­tioned in a blog­ging book called The Rough Guide to Blog­ging: Nav­i­gate the Blo­gos­phere by Jonathan Yang (Lon­don: Rough Guides Ltd, Octo­ber 2006). Troy and I then went to a book store to check the book out and saw that it was men­tioned in a sec­tion on per­son­al blogs/online jour­nals, com­plete with a screen­shot. Sweet! And no, we didn’t buy the book. Maybe lat­er, when (if?) it shows up in a thrift store or a bar­gain book store. Mind you, we almost exclu­sive­ly buy books used. We’re cheap that way. Heh.

Mean­while, it’s still frickin’ snow­ing in Water­loo.

  1. I’m a pho­tog­ra­ph­er who is obsessed with tak­ing pic­tures that fore­tell ancient life and sto­ries. I want to take pic­tures of sculp­tures of pre­his­toric era. But my favorite is to take pic­tures of jew­el­ry known to be used by roy­al fam­i­lies long time ago. Most of the time, we can see all of these objects in muse­ums. I want­ed to sub­mit one pic­ture with this theme but it’s for­bid­den to take pic­tures of muse­um items from my end here.
