Photos taken almost 40 years apart show London changes | Telegraph

Photos taken almost 40 years apart show London changes | Telegraph | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"A collection of photographs taken almost 40 years apart show how London's streets have changed. In 1973, civil servant John Hutchinson photographed areas in London which were under threat of redevelopment. He feared the Victorian buildings that had survived the Blitz would be lost forever, so he set out to photograph them for posterity."

Thanks to @EnglishinComo for having me discover the pictures !

"Ben Heine est un artiste installé en Belgique qui aime défier la nature et la caméra. En s’appuyant sur des paysages, des passants ou des tranches de vie qu’il rencontre, il redessine les contours et y ajoute sa part d’imaginaire. Toujours pris en photo tenus par sa main, ses croquis sont la seconde lecture de la vie."

Mashable :

"Facebook is buying Instagram — and some Instagram users aren’t happy about it.  [...] The fear is that in addition to the company, Facebook has acquired all of that location-tagged photo data from Instagram’s users and may use it to target ads at them. [...] f you’re in the camp that’s deleting its Instagram accounts regardless [...], you don’t have to give up your photo library in the process. [...]

The Deleted City | Richard VIJGEN

 

"Two years ago, Yahoo! committed an act of digital urbicide and deleted the entire U.S. archives of GeoCities, the personal-website portal it had paid $3.57 billion for in 1999. (Oddly, the Japanese version apparently still exists.) But an intrepid backup effort by The Internet Archive managed to capture GeoCities’ final state as a 641GB torrent file for posterity.

And now, artist Richard Vijgen has used that data to create an interactive tribute called "The Deleted City," which literally maps the millions of GeoCities web pages onto a zoomable urban grid." <<   fastcodesign.com

Rear Window loop (2011)

Rear Window loop (2011) | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

A visual installation by Jeff Desom, based on footage from Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" (1954).

"I dissected all of Hitchcock's Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie's plot."

The New York Times Hawk Cam

The New York Times Hawk Cam on Livestream. "[...] what better way to celebrate the season than to watch as two red-tailed hawks incubate their eggs — eggs which could, experts say, hatch at any moment ? We’ve arranged with the City Room blog to feature their Hawk Cam this week so you can observe Bobby and Rosie, the birds who have made a nest on the 12th-floor window ledge of Bobst Library at NY University, in real time. Of course, we also have some teaching ideas to go with it.[...]"
