A Gift of Love - Photo Essay - JPG | Photographic Stories | Scoop.it
Could there be nothing richer, nothing as profound as the love of a mother for her child? When I first saw this topic, I wondered how I might decide on one person. Surely, I thought, there is the love I feel for my husband—a soul mate, if ever.

Mountain Walking: Lost In Wales · James Lomax Photography

Mountain Walking: Lost In Wales · James Lomax Photography | Photographic Stories | Scoop.it

Daniel Boone said he’d never been lost in all his life, but he’d once been confused for a few days. There are different kinds of getting lost. There’s the kind that is miserable, inconvenient or depressing, ruining the day or weekend trip. Staying at a Lake District B and B, I heard the tale of a group of girls who went down the wrong way (Piers Ghyll instead of the Corridor Route) and ended up in the wrong valley (Wasdale not Borrowdale). Apparently they thought it was all part of the fun, and the fifty pound taxi ride would not have been so painful shared between three. For me, walking trips are not that kind of ‘fun’ – my walking days are planned – and if I were on my own fifty pounds would be a big and wasted expense.

THEORY NOW: Orders of Photographic Identity Construction

THEORY NOW: Orders of Photographic Identity Construction | Photographic Stories | Scoop.it

An examination of orders of photographic identity construction featruing three images from 1864, 1865 and the 1950s.

In 1865, photojournalist Alexander Gardner had six of the accused Lincoln conspirators brought up on the deck of the USS Montauk, an ironclad monitor anchored in the Potomac River, and posed them for a series of famous photographs. Irrespective of their historic value, these photographs additionally reveal Gardner’s desire for an “artistic” expression in his photographic work. The accused men were dressed in coats and ties, hair combed and styled, then positioned against the iron turret for the various shots.
