JOL Sunday Flickr #30

It’s been quite the week, huh.

I know people come and visit the JOL Sunday Flickr posts every Sunday that they get posted… this particular episode happens to be #30 for those keeping track, officially on the “JOL Sunday Flickr” moniker…

Today we’re doing peaceful.  Peaceful is good today.  Tomorrow or the next day is going to be a rough watch, because I was given an exclusive interview with Shawn London of Eagles of Death Metal.  As soon as the Vice episode with Eagles of Death Metal posts, we’re going to post our interview.  It’s fucking rough, you guys, but it needs to be heard.

Here’s the Vice interview video intro, it actually airs this coming week some time.  Teaser is just not very fucking apropos right now, is it.

Ok, back to some peace. Please, check out the Flickr Group photo pool. People post some excellent stuff there, support your amateur (and professional!) photographers!

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!
