- A smart guy playing with Photoshop found two very simple tricks to make it run faster. I’ve tried them both at home and at work on Windows 7 and OSX, and it seems to help a bit with large size images or when dealing with multiple files open at the same time.
- The Photography Blog had an interesting article a couple months ago about long exposure photography, written by David Noton and illustrated with some of his beautiful images. Highly recommended for landscape shooters.

- London-based photographer and blogger Phill Price comes everyday with a picture taken in London. This is pure street photography as I love it. Phill also organizes events for the London Flickr Meetup and PhotowalkLondon Tweeter group.

This project explores marriage and its definition amongst women who have surpassed the
average age of marriage (25) in the U.S. yet have remained single.
In the portraits, the women wearing the same wedding dress and are pictured in their
spaces. The photograph is an object of fantasy. They are dressed in a symbol that is a
stereotype of constrained societal pressure, a tradition of roles and expectations. Their spaces
represent the stage of life they are in, whether they live in a studio space on their own or with
a significant other to whom they are not married.
Accompanying the photographs are video interviews that bring the viewer back to reality.
The women are in their own clothes and freely share with us their own opinions on marriage,
family and the multitude of paths they plan.
- Amazing wildlife, portraits, street and architecture photography by George Logan.
