This Picture of Boston, Circa 1860, Is the World’s Oldest Surviving Aerial Photo 

This Picture of Boston, Circa 1860, Is the World’s Oldest Surviving Aerial Photo  | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
A sight from 2,000 feet, a view of 1860s Boston 
donhornsby's insight:
The first flight of an untethered hot air balloon—humanity’s first really successful attempt at flight—took place in 1783 when “Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d’Arlandes” flew over Paris. The first real photograph was taken in 1826 when Joseph Nicéphore Niépce took a picture out of his window. It took more than 30 years for someone to put these two inventions together to bring us the world’s first photo from the air. That photo, an 1858 aerial image of Paris, France, captured by Gaspard-Félix Tournachon is no longer with us. But the next best thing, says PetaPixel, is in the caring hands of the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art: an 1860 photograph of Boston captured from 2,000 feet.

Photographer Shoots Life-Size Animal Prints in Destroyed Habitats

Photographer Shoots Life-Size Animal Prints in Destroyed Habitats | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it

To highlight human destruction of animal habitats in East Africa, photographer Nick Brandt shot giant panoramas of life-size animal prints in their former habitats. The project is titled Inherit the Dust.

donhornsby's insight:
Inherit the Dust Indeed!

(From the article): Brandt’s photos offer a stark look at how humankind has impacted places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. He found locations where explosive urban development displaced animals due to the building of new factories, wastelands, and quarries. He then erected one of his animal portrait photos on a giant panel, placing the animals back into the scene.

donhornsby's insight:

I know that this is a quirky song....but there is a story to it...

 

We caught the end of a set by Caravan of Thieves at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA a few nights ago. After their set was done - they left the stage for a small area nearby and the audience crowded around them. The band performed this song with the crowd around them, stomping, clapping, singing, and enjoying the tune. It was one of those magical moments that you will not forget...and the song stays in your head awhile. I was glad we were able to catch this moment in my memory...


Boom, Clap......Boom, Clap......
