JOL Sunday Flickr #22

Check out a great bunch of photography of our favorite subject — lumens!  Make sure to give these great photogs some click loving!  Also, check out the JimOnLight Flickr Group — join us, why don’t you?

JOL Sunday Flickr #21

This has been an awesome and busy week.  My new job — I have to say it is absolutely freaking awesome.  It was literally catered to my skillset, and so far it is a mix of design, creating education, blogging, social media expertise, and using my industry knowledge for the company good.  I absolutely f*cking love it.  It’s also nice to work for a boss who doesn’t demean the employees and come in every morning screaming.  I hope I forget about that experience pretty soon, it literally haunts me like The Blair Witch Project haunted teenagers in the US for months when it came out.  You live and learn, I guess.

It’s a late night JOL Sunday Flickr, but it’s awesome — give these brilliant light capturers your clicks, wouldja? And, AND, check out the JimOnLight Flickr Group!

Happy Sunday, everybody!

I hope that today’s installment of photos from the JimOnLight Flickr Group meets your approval as you’re sipping on some coffee surrounded by your loved ones…  or pets…  or absolutely by yourself if that’s what you’ve been dealt today.  I always loved sitting on my 21st story balcony on Sunday mornings in Oklahoma City when I lived there, just staring off in the middle distance at the wonderment that comes from living 252 feet above the street.

Here’s today’s collection of awesome photos by some awesome photographers.  Check them out, and give their respective pages some traffic!  Have an awesome morning, everyone!  AWESOME!

JOL Sunday Flickr #18

I’m a few weeks behind on my JOL Sunday Flickr posting…  I’ve been pretty much spending every waking moment looking for a job, so life has been a bit challenging at best lately.

It is very therapeutic to search for JOL Sunday Flickr images to post, I have to say!  Looking at other artists’ eye frames of the world is one of my favorite things.  Remember those “Art in the Dark” classes where you watched nothing but slides of works of art for months at a time?  Yeah, I loved those classes.

Check out JOL Sunday Flickr #18!

Light + Water + The Nude Human Form = Tomohide Ikeya’s Amazing Visuals

Tomohide Ikeya is an artist who works with an uncontrollable medium to achieve moments frozen in time from that world of non-compliance.  Meet Tomohide Ikeya’s water-based photography, where light, water, and the human form are introduced to express the irony of control:

From Tomohide Ikeya, about his work:

I’m a photographer who has a concept of “Control” for my work. Water is one of “uncontrolled” things which the human being never can to do. I had a lot of opportunities to think about ‘water’ with doing scuba diving in several countries as a hobby. The beauty of sunshine viewed from under water, daily life of aquatics and me as human just be able to see their world for a moment… We thought human could control water if we had lots of equipments and cared for risks in water, but human never be able to live in water. And we also never be able to live without water. Water doesn’t only give a life, but also takes a life. On the other hand, water is not the Mother of Creation or the Master of Destruction, it’s just be there as ‘water’. Water is a philosophical existence very much even be as ’just water’. I had been fascinated with water more and more and I had gotten a zeal for expression it. It is one of reasons which I became a photographer, so I have been creating my works which has a relation with water. I’m expressing “enthusiasm for life” by photography throughout the figure of Water and Human.’ – Tomohide Ikeya

These images are from both the Moon series and the Breath series.  You have to go through these two galleries, these works are absolutely amazing.  Tomohide just captures the uncontrollable properties of the water as they are creating their uncontrollable world for the humans bathing in it, and the results are outstanding.  Very amazing work, Tomohide!

A huge thanks to Tomohide Ikeya, KoiKoiKoi, and Sweet Station!

JOL Sunday Flickr #15

This is a crazy day — Laura and I are packing up the JimOnLight.com Toronto offices today, getting ready for our move back to the USA!  The next few weeks will be fairly busy, as we’re staying in Durham, Ontario for a week or so before we head to see family in Peoria, Illinois.  Laura’s only allowed to visit until we get all of her visa stuff approved, so we’re dreading but accepting the fact that we’re going to have some time spent apart while we make sure that we don’t overstay her visa.

Talk about sh*t you never thought you’d have to do!

Today’s JOL Sunday Flickr is awesome — go give these great photogs some love!  Stop by the JimOnLight Flickr Group photo pool and give your eyes some lovin!
