To Really Remember Something, Don't Take Pictures Of It | PHOTO - MEMORY

To Really Remember Something, Don't Take Pictures Of It | PHOTO - MEMORY | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"[....] When people rely on technology to remember for them — counting on the camera to record the event and thus not needing to attend to it fully themselves — it can have a negative impact on how well they remember their experiences,” she explains. [...)"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Pictures help remember past events (people, places...) though ! As a calculator might "weaken" our own calculating abilities, would taking pictures decrease our ability to remember ? I'd never considered the issue from that point of view -paradoxical, yet it might well be true...

Amazing Microscope Shots | PHOTOS

Amazing Microscope Shots | PHOTOS | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
These microscope pictures are taken from the book ' Microcosmos', created by Brandon Brill
Monica MIRZA's insight:

The book displays many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images : insects, human body parts and household items -all too small to see with the naked eye.

Unlike the picture above, most of them show something we cannot identify unless we read the corresponding caption...

APOD - Astronomy Picture Of the Day | the NASA - PHOTOS | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
A different astronomy and space science
related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation.
Monica MIRZA's insight:

And here's how I've just learnt the name of Jupiter's moon : Europa (accordingly to the APOD website, the "Gibbous" moon).

I keep on feeling awe-struck each time I contemplate the NASA pics : they make me travel -I think they also may well help us realize we're so much smaller than what we sometimes claim ;)

The Observer's 20 photographs of the week

The Observer's 20 photographs of the week | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"A poster depicting former South African president Nelson Mandela hangs on barbed wire as a Palestinian protester flees teargas fired by Israeli soldiers during clashes at a weekly demonstration against Jewish settlements at Bilin, near Ramallah, in the West Bank."

 

Monica MIRZA's insight:

The Guardian Observer photo gallery displays its weekly favourite shots.

The first of the gallery 20 photos  is dazzling -go and check :-)

But I've rather  scooped the above for it's incredibly full of contrasts and paradox. Definitely shows though Mandela's walk to freedom mostly succeeded, loads of steps still need to be walked all over the world...

Enquête Fisheye : les Français et la photographie | Phototrend.fr

Enquête Fisheye : les Français et la photographie | Phototrend.fr | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

Le mois dernier, le magazine Fisheye profitait de sa troisième édition pour publier les résultats de son enquête réalisée avec l'Ifop au sujet des Français. [...] Peu importe le medium, l’époque est loin où savoir/pouvoir prendre des photos était réservé à une élite. D’ailleurs, 56% des répondants indiquent que pour eux la photographie est un outil permettant de se souvenir d’événements passés. On est bien loin ici de l’idée idyllique que l’on se fait du photographe qui photographie pour la beauté de l’image, mais c’est plutôt la photographie comme aide mémoire et boîte à souvenirs. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

L'instantanéité de la photo numérique et sa facilité de partage et diffusion font aujourd'hui glisser la photographie vers une extimité qui peut parfois s'avérer un tantinet exhibitionniste... ?! :o)

"The Mountain" - Time-lapse PHOTOGRAPHY | TSO Photography

"The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I [TSO Photography] know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

El Teide (filmed in April 2011) is Spain´s highest mountain (3718m) : one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars. It hosts Teide Observatories,  which is considered one of the world´s best observatories.

A dazzling time-lapse movie :-)
