There are two photo website that I believe stand out from the rest. They are the Boston Globe’s Big Picture and the great visual storytelling Pictory.
Every week, Pictory exhibits a different theme and this week it’s titled In Deep. Here’s what they have to say:
Bodies of water bring us comfort, euphoria, life.
Most of my happiest memories involve water. Water is the fundamental precursor of life and one of our most valuable resources, but most of us don’t think of it that way. We think of failed attempts to water ski and boiling hot days. Days at the beach or floats down the river. Water and heat work together to give us excuses to detach, relax, and forget. Soak it up.
Check out the images and short captions. They are always awesome. The cool thing about Pictory is that you can contribute to it too! So check out their upcoming themes and join in the fun. Who knows, your image and story might make it in. Good luck!
If you are a photographer, you’re probably familiar with the term photowalking. Well, I have a couple little kids learning about the excitement of photography and we call it photoddling. It’s a fun activity and a great way to create an appreciation for art, nature and community. Of course, we’re working on a website.
