Crossing Queensboro Bridge New York City by Matt Mawson

You might remember Matt Mawson from his great Coney Island series. This time he captures the Queensboro Bridge in New York City and its surroundings. I think the high contrast in these photos really helps make these rainy day photos come to life and gives them a gritty look.

Felix Baumgartner Will Attempt Sky Dive Record for Red Bull Stratos

Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner, with the help of Red Bull Stratos,  will soon try and break the world record for highest sky dive. He will attempt a 23 mile free fall from a pressurized capsule while wearing only a spacuit. In doing so, he will become the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall and will risk having the water in his body vaporize! No one knows what will happen, but people are sure to find out.

Camera Obscura by Abelardo Morell

These are some great photos taken by Abelardo Morell using the camera obscura technique. Here's  a good description taken from PDN's Photo of the Day:

"Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura technique has taken him from photographing his own living room to interiors across the globe. “One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside”,  he says. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph he covers all windows with plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then he cuts one small hole in the materials that he uses to cover the windows. An inverted image of the view outside then floods onto the walls in the room. He focuses the large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall and exposes the film.

Morell recently designed a light proof tent that, via periscope type optics, makes it possible to project a view of the nearby landscape onto whatever ground is under the tent. Inside this darkened space he uses a view camera to record the effect. He says, “I think it is a rather wonderful sandwich of two outdoor realities coming together. This Tent-Camera now liberates me to use camera obscura techniques in a world of new places. I now have a portable room, so to speak.”"

I especially like the ones where the image is projected onto textured surfaces. They just give the images a unique and interesting look.

Incredible Urban Photography by Thomas Birke

Thomas Birke's urban photography really makes cities come to life. His photos give a preview of what life might be like in the future. To portray this, he takes photos of densly populated areas and tries to show at least 1,000 people and their traces in each picture. By capturing illuminated windows and light streaks of vehicles, you can see the footprint of urban environments. I highly recommend viewing his photos in full resolution to truly get a sense of what he is capturing.

What do you think she was trying to convey when making these images?
