On World Press Photo announces 2013 contest winners news story (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

John Koch: Interesting pictures, without a doubt: war, corpses, fatal jumps, chronic disability, and depths of the Antarctic. Angst, desolation, mayhem.

Then think of the photojornalists who cover street repairs, police retirement banquets, independence day parades, youth basketball tournaments, or warehouse fires. Then there are the folks who photograph real estate, weddings, products, and graduates. All happy stuff.

Well, I guess we idealize angst, desolation mayhem.

I noticed the same thing recently in a listing of film student winners. All negative themes. I think it is a sign of the times. We are in a period of heightened negativity, most of it aimed at manipulation. I for one am tired of it.

On Red and White in the What Is This? challenge (16 comments in total)

It is sunlight refracted through a clear glass with a red plastic water bottle behind adding the red color. The glass was sitting on the kitchen counter and the sun was streaming in from the kitchen window hitting the glass and the red plastic water bottle. Some of the patterns are from the lines in the plastic of the bottle. The rest are from the shape of the glass. They are refracted on the white kitchen counter.
