Rare photograph of a rainbow's end

I came across this image of the end of a rainbow
by Jason Erdkam via's Art History blogger. Apparently, it IS possible to experience and capture such an event. Some folks have even stated that they have stood INSIDE the end of a rainbow. How cool is that? Lucky ducks!

Click here or above to see more end of the rainbow images.

New approach to narrative in photography...

This is just amazing...perhaps this could inspire a whole new method of photo captioning?

You have 2 days left to be exposed

Although in theory this is a personal blog, life and work merge together when one works at a small non-profit. I want to remind folks that you have until TOMORROW, Saturday, February 7th to get your submission in the mail (or dropped off at the PRC 12-5pm) for the 14th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition, EXPOSURE.

Seriously photo folks, don't let this one pass you by! It takes but a second to burn 10 images to a cd and gather your materials! If you join online and don't have a card, don't worry, just make a note of it, we check everyone. Run, don't walk to the post office. (Not that I am encouraging procrastination, but you can find the branch that is open til the wee hours online for that coveted postmark).

The juror this year is Russel Hart, Executive Editor at American Photo magazine and Editor of American Photo On Campus. This year, he will be on the jury of AP's "Emerging Artist" and "Student Portfolio" showcases.

Not only that, but all of us jurors are a part of a secret society (just kidding), but understand that we do talk to each other and recommend artists to each other. Who knows what this might lead to? Not only that, but gathering up a handful of juried show wins at places like the PRC and its other kindred spirits speaks volumes on your resume. A good investment, to be sure.

Read about the submission details and get the required entry form as a PDF here. See pics of last year's show here. Now, git!
