Sunday JimOnLight.com Flickr Pool Photos

It’s an interesting day here in Oklahoma City, as it’s January and feels like April.  Yeah.  I can’t wait to get out of this state, we do not like each other!

On the other side of the rainbow, there are some excellent JimOnLight.com Flickr Group photos today!  The first one just gives me the shivers because of the depth of the silver in the grain.  Beautiful.

It’s been a busy week, with another on the way.  If you’re in the midwest, how’s this heat we’ve been getting toasted every day with doing for you?

Yeah.  I can’t wait for winter.  When winter gets here, I can’t wait for summer.  Humans.

Check out some beautiful shots in this week’s episode of the JimOnLight,.com Flickr Group Photo Pool – make sure to give the photographers some love if you like a shot – each image links back to that specific Flickr photog’s page.  The web is an amazing place, I cannot imagine how art and photography and light would be if we couldn’t use it.  There’s all kinds of craziness going on in the world right now, and despotic governments all over the world are cutting off their people’s access to the internet – if you’re free and you want to help support someone in another country who’s fighting for their freedom, let’s all band together for the sake of humanity through art!

Ten Songs about Light, or ДЕСЯТЬ ПЕСЕН О ФОНАРЯХ

I randomly came across this really great set of ten images of light in the winter – 35 Photo has a post up right now, in Russian (but that’s why Google Translate is amazing), which are totally worth your time to check out.  I’ve posted two of the images below, but you need to go check out the rest!

This next one is – oh, awesome:

Another Sunday, another great round of JimOnLight.com Flickr Group photos!  Amazing photographers have been contacting me lately via email, sending tons of work my way that showcases light.  If you’re a light lover too, send me an email so I can share your work with the world of people who also need their lux loving!

Niagara Falls in the Eyes of A Master of Captured Lumens

I am so excited to post this for everybody – her work should be getting some major props.  By “her” of course I mean the official photog for JimOnLight.com and a mad, mad artist in her own right – Amanda Lynne Ballard.  Everyone knows her on Twitter as @a_mandolin, and those of us who know her from the internet and the world know she’s a photographer and pic magician.

One of our favorite stage managers, @SMLois (or Lois to the layperson) came to see Amanda Lynne in Toronto for a visit recently, and a series of events unfolded.  Will I get these in the right order?  Probably not.  Let’s see:

  1. Amanda Lynne piles Lois and Brittany (@bfg85 on Twitter) into her car.
  2. Amanda Lynne then drives Lois and Brittany in her car down the QE.
  3. Amanda Lynne keeps the destination, Niagara Falls, a secret for a set amount of time.
  4. Amanda Lynne reveals destination to Lois and Brittany, who rejoice.

Background stories are excellent.  Enjoy these photos, and Amanda Lynne is about to have some photo work on JimOnLight.com from a backstage tour of KA we had, followed by three days of LightFair 2010 shots!

Dude, squee.
