Dad’s impressive engineering! This is a slide copy stand made from a light box, 35mm SLR, 2 x4 pine blocks, poster board, & binder clips; please also note the various recycled food containers.
He is experiencing some color shift in the Ectachrome slide, so I attempted to fix this image of him with his parents and grand parents in Arizona..as he was headed off to the Air Force.

Grandpa again looks too cool for school…but all of the Floras have corrective lenses….curses.
No, that’s not Tommy Flora you’re looking at here; that is our grandfather, Orvin Flora camping in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan 71 years ago! This image is a photo copy shot by my father from Grandpa’s personal photo album. Grandpa was just 19 years old in this photo from February 1943. I bet he thought he had a future in mobster-ing!
My dad has been working on digitizing his father’s photo albums. This album is the first and the funniest by far. Grandpa was 19-20 yrs old, and travelling a lot, visiting his brothers who were in the army before going off to war. Grandpa, who was always something of a ladies’ man, had not yet married his wife Marilyn, so dad and I are assuming she removed photos of other women from his photo album at some point.
Photoshop Parody Ads Show Just How Deceptive Altered Images Can Be
Anna Hill, a 24-year-old student at East Carolina University, created these cheeky Photoshop ads for her final project in a digital photography class. Hill’s Photoshop ads promise “Immortalized beauty…as long as you never let anyone see you in person ever again.”

Obama has taken a funeral selfie, so our work here is done
I’d intended for the post below to be the final one here, but then this just happened at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service—not exactly a funeral, to be fair, but I’ll just go ahead and take credit for the whole thing. Thank you, world, and good night!
Michelle finds your world-leader funeral selfie appalling.
Well, I am excited; I was just told that this image I submitted to Washington Trails Association in 2012, in a trip report, will be used in the upcoming print issue of the Trails Magazine. They are featuring the Colonel Bob Peak hike in the upcoming issue, and will be mailing me a copy at that time.
I’m not an artist, but I have more than a few friends who are, so I thought this might be a good thing to post.
I used to do freelance illustration and gd, this is sound advice.
No free work and get paid on signing the contract. Otherwise they will take ur shit and never pay you.
Never send anything in to be ‘chosen’ unless it’s a comp. If u send any work in they must pay you for it even if they decide they’re ‘not going to use it after all’.
