A brilliant new site. The famous New York Times have opened up their archives of news photographs and are publishing these treasures on a tumblr site they call The lively morgue. What makes these shots even more interesting that by clicking the images, you can see the original back side including notes as well. I picked as an illustration a photograph dating back to April 28, 1948: a pile of visitors' hats in the lobby of the White House. Photograph by George Tames/The New York Times.
About me: Dutchman, married to a beautiful and highly talented artist from Shanghai. Although my education (PhD chemistry) is very much associated with the left side of the brain, I like to use my right side for my hobbies: music, art, photography.
About this blog: I started this blog in August 2006, just wanting to share what I considered interesting pieces of visual art and music. I suffered from blogging blues for most of 2008, but making a fresh start in October of that year has done wonders for my inspiration. In case you did not notice, most posts end with a small symbol... just click that for the relevant link. All pictures in my blog are hosted on blogger - if some do not show up (the red cross syndrome) it is a blogger hiccup. Right click and selecting "show picture" should do the trick.
My other main blog: In December 2009 I started a parallel blog, Art's Potpourri, for subjects that I think are interesting, but not fitting for my main blog. A few other blogs have come and gone - I list them here for reference.
