Facebooking a picture of a baby with a gun is always a crowd pleaser:

Wow… an outcry over a stupid little picture like that?  I’ve seen lots of pictures with babies and guns, why did this one get so much press?  If I had a kid brother or sister I would troll the shit out of the anti gun world.

I love how the dad was basically like “meh…”

1:42 – Wow, the amount of derp that comes out of her derp hole is astonishing.

Troll-FaceThat’s weak the store succumbed to the pressure and removed the picture from their facebook page.

Thoughts?

Almost a century ago and without the aid of any pixel-generating computer software, the itinerant photographer Arthur Mole (1889-1983) used his 11 x 14-inch view camera to stage a series of extraordinary mass photographic spectacles that choreographed living bodies into symbolic formations of religious and national community. In these mass ornaments, thousands of military troops and other groups were arranged artfully to form American patriotic symbols, emblems, and military insignia visible from a bird’s eye perspective. During World War I, these military formations came to serve as rallying points to support American involvement in the war and to ward off isolationist tendencies.

Simply amazing; the use of perspective is incredible. It would be neat to see this done again.

I wonder if there was a lot of complaining back then? I’m sure there would be plenty today if soldiers were ordered to be involved in this type of project.

When the police act as though cameras were the equivalent of guns pointed at them, there is a sense in which they are correct. Cameras have become the most effective weapon that ordinary people have to protect against and to expose police abuse. And the police want it to stop.

The legal justification for arresting the “shooter” rests on existing wiretapping or eavesdropping laws, with statutes against obstructing law enforcement sometimes cited. Illinois, Massachusetts, and Maryland are among the 12 states in which all parties must consent for a recording to be legal unless, as with TV news crews, it is obvious to all that recording is underway. Since the police do not consent, the camera-wielder can be arrested.

Absolutely insane that laws like this were able to pass. Police are public servants who are being paid to enforce the law.  Pretty disgusting that some of them think they can break the law and suffer no consequences.

If you follow my blog, you know that I am a sucker for good photo blogs.  The Big Picture is the PBlog that started it all for me.

There is now a clever parody blog of The Big Picture, called The Big Caption.  Here is one example:


They are all pretty funny.

Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder not only documents the war in Afghanistan with traditional digital cameras, he also used an iPhone camera, carried in his flak jacket pocket, coupled with a Polaroid film filter application to photograph the daily lives of Marines, Afghan soldiers and fellow journalists during the military offensive in Marjah, Afghanistan.

Check out the whole set – HERE

What a neat idea to use the iPhone; the pictures are very unique looking.  When scrolling through the pictures it was easy to forget that they were current, and not from Vietnam or another war a few decades ago.

Shake It Photo is the application which the photographer used.  It’s only 99cents in case you want to try it out.

Thanks to Steven S for emailing me the link!
