Google Image Odyssey: Time Lapse Fireworks

Posted in photography with tags on July 4, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

4th of July is always littered with pretty firework photos online, but they take on an entirely different quality when shown in a time lapse (some of these have watermarks. For source of others, drag and drop to Google images).

Some are like masses of energy sending out sensory feelers in all directions.


Or examinations under a microscope.


This one could be a deep sea creature.

Happy Father’s Day…Have Some Pregnant Seahorses

Posted in nature, photography, sea with tags , , on June 21, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

In honor of Father’s Day, I present this collection of pregnant seahorses (as some of you may know, the male seahorse carries the babies).

Next time you have a disagreement with your dad, you can say “At least you didn’t have to birth 200 of me out of your gut.” That is how the seahorses roll.

I love that this one looks like he’s sitting on a balance ball.



If you want to watch a video of seahorse birth, you can see an example of this (mildly obscene looking) miracle of life here.


Jon Rafman

Posted in photography with tags on June 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Jon Rafman has compiled an incredible collection of Google street view screen captures. This impersonal lens manages to produce still frame slices of life that inadvertently tell stories, ranging from humorous to enchanting, to downright bizarre.

Yes, this is Google street view.

Some glitches produce magical, interdimensional scenery.

Or illusions of characters meeting themselves in strange places.

Sometimes we see wild animals with personality.

Or existential nexuses…

Many of the photos depict crime, prostitution, poverty and varied flavors of irreverence. But they are all worth a look. There’s something fascinating about an indifferent gadget producing art worthy of poignant editorial photo spreads. It just goes to show that art is everywhere. We must remember to keep our eyes open for it.

Thanks for this rabbit hole, Casey!

Wild Ones: Insectopia

Posted in bugs, creatures, nature, photography with tags , , , on June 5, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’d like to share one of my favorite boards, containing nature photography that will leave you utterly awestruck. You will see outrageous acts of mimicry…


Posing and theatrics…

Unusual coloring…

Creatures that look like they were painstakingly designed and painted by a brilliant artist.




If you click, prepare to spend a little time at the Insectopia.

MIROIR Magazine: H2O

Posted in art, photography, surreal with tags , , on May 23, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

MIROIR Magazine is my all time favorite art publication. That’s a bold statement for a tireless visual arts junkie, but there it is. The magazine features a masterfully curated sampling of the finest contemporary artists and photographers (at least, for the dreamers, the delightful weirdos, the creative, and for all who love to be dazzled and intrigued).

The new issue, H2O, is a glorious collection of photographs and paintings that deeply appeal to my Piscean heart.





Preview the issue and order HERE (be aware that some images are NSFW).

Eye Poetry Photography

I can think of no better name for Irene Suchocki’s work than Eye Poetry Photography.


Don’t you want to just walk this past and get lost among these trees?

I used to love this ride as a child.


Make a wish…

Kintsukuroi: Sacred Scars

Posted in announcement, art, Books, photography, surreal with tags , , , , on May 1, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Around the time I made this post, I began to conceive of ways to creatively share the transformative metaphorical implications of Kintsukuroi (objects “repaired with gold,” considered more beautiful for having been broken).


The result was a labor of love, drawn out over many months due to health complications, but finally taking shape. I’m partnering with the remarkable Nina Pak to create an art book with a series of human Kintsukuroi photographs; surreal, evocative portraiture of subjects with compelling markings and stories. Each image will be a vignette unto itself, inspired by the symbols, archetypes and myths to which the subject feels a particular connection.

But I didn’t want to limit artistic expression, narrative or empowerment through this material to a book project, so I developed Sacred Scars where anyone can submit a story and be celebrated in a community of those who appreciate that we each have a unique, valuable Hero’s Journey.

There is also a Facebook Group which will offer its own exclusive content and opportunities for involvement.

If this profound topic resonates and you’d like more information; if you or someone you know has a story to tell and would like to be featured in the book or website (we are taking model applications right now!), please head over to:
Facebook Group
Mailing List

This project means the world to me, but I am admittedly a totally inept social networker and physically unable to do much promotion. I’d truly appreciate anyone’s help spreading the word via email/networks (I’ll be sending fun prizes to my biggest helpers!).

*Stay tuned for the Kickstarter! Members of the mailing list and Facebook group will have access to a preview of the campaign before it goes live.
