Foto Friday – Maritime Compass and Maritime Flickr

Thomas Smillie was the Smithsonian's first photographer and curator of photography. He and his studio staff re-shot many of the photographs collected by the institution's scientists, including documentation of Smithsonian-sponsored expeditions as well as images of scientific phenomena.

Heather at Maritime Compass put up a interesting post yesterday entitled Maritime Flickr where in addition to mentioning one of my favorite maritime photographers, OneEighteen, she gave us a run down of lots of historical photo resources on Flickr. Check out her post.

  1. Peter, thanks for the mention! But you deserve all the credit for introducing me to OneEighteen’s great photos. Keep up the great Foto Fridays!
