During my travels through the depths of the PhotoShelter universe this week, I spotted a few things that caused me to pause and look a bit longer. “This is cool,” I would usually say to myself. Then I make a mental note about mentioning it in the next “Friday Shout-Out.”
Sadly, I forget so many of them. I really need to learn to write stuff down. However, some things I did actually remember…
Congrats to Bryan Farley. His images of the 4th Annual National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington DC are currently featured on the front page of the Epilepsy Foundation website. He mentioned this on his personal blog (which, by the way, is a very personal account about people –himself included– who are living with Epilepsy.)
I spotted an image in the portfolio of Gabriel Lopez that made me laugh a bit. Probably because it reminds me of my childhood, and how clowns were creepy and scary. The little girl in the picture seems to feel the same way.
Sean Rice has a nice image of a massive bolt of scary lightning over the Carribbean Sea, shot at night. I’m a sucker for Mother Nature letting us know that she’s actually still in charge of this place.
Vincent Mundy did a great job documenting his trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway. His gallery contains 33 images, showing a really diverse set of images from a fascinating part of the world. Nice job, Vincent.
Lucian Reed posted a series of images that feature Coney Island Teens. I really love the way Lucian shoots, and his style is wonderful. The assortment of people in this series made me look at every single image in the gallery – slowly – so I could absorb the contents of every single picture.
I was checking out Peter Koval‘s archive, and there are just a ton of images in there that are worthy of a high-five, I had a hard time choosing which I would include here. But I settled on a picture from his “New York Scenes” gallery. I don’t know exactly where in NYC this was taken, but I will admit to looking at the picture for a really long time, thinking I could figure it out. The closest I could come was, “Brooklyn.”
I am always looking for things to include here in our Friday Shout-Outs – so if you have anything you think is worthy, let me know. Or, better yet, post a note to Twitter with my name in it (@heygrover) or “friend me” on Facebook, and that way I won’t forget it later.
Have a sweet weekend!
