Yes, this is an adorable dog in a swimming pool. Alone, this would be very cute, but when you add the person in the background it becomes a funny large dog sniffing a little person’s butt. Thanks gerdaindc, you can’t ask for more than that.
There are several wonderfully absurd things about this photograph. First is the ICEE bear, positioned exactly in the frame to look as if he is really handing that drink to the photographer. The second is the person, almost the same size as the bear, but their top half is taken over by the plant. When you add in the bold colors of the food stand, the plant, the bear sign and the shoes of the person we can’t fully see, this image is a summer winner.
Shooting weddings can be a lot of fun, particularly when you’re not the official wedding photographer. It seems likely that Robb Hohman was playing the role of guest when he snapped this vibrant candid shot of two fellow revelers engaging in the usual kinds of reception shenanigans. This pricelessly evocative image was captured on film using a Voigtlander Bessa-R3A rangefinder.
I love a deceptively simple-looking architectural photo. John Griffiths worked some magic with the exposure of Eastern Market’s ceiling, managing to fill the darker walls and market stalls under the overhangs, without overexposing the rafters near the skylight. The soft light gives the large warehouse the aura of a cathedral.
