It's literally a "rainy days and Mondays"-type of day here over in Manila, so you could say that adding a dash of the gift that is Karen Carpenter is just the thing to even things out. She sang it best after all.
I think we can all agree that a person cannot qualify having a good taste in music if he/she cannot at least acknowledge the fact that Karen Carpenter possessed one of the most beautiful singing voices in history.
It was like a gentle stream running down the mountain on a spring day: smooth, crystal clear and absolutely enchanting. I was reminded by this universal fact when I stumbled upon this gorgeous stripped down version of We’ve Only Just Begun — nothing but bass, drums and Karen’s spectacular vocals.
For the benefit of those who haven’t heard of her. Karen Carpenter was an American singer and drummer, known best as one-half of the 1970s brother-sister duo, The Carpenters alongside her brother Richard. She tragically passed away on February 4, 1983 at the age of 32 from heart failure caused by complications related to anorexia, an eating disorder which she battled for years.
She may have left this world all too soon, but she will forever be immortalized in their songs. I could just listen to her all day.
Did you catch the solar eclipse that happened recently? Word on the street is that it even resulted in a total eclipse in some areas of Europe, making it a pretty rare occasion for the folks that got to see it! We're guessing that some of you even had your cameras to catch the whole shebang on film — which is why we're throwing a competition for the best eclipse and sun inspired shots out there. Come on in and check out the details!
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

Our grandparents taught us never to stoop down to the level of bad people, but Quentin Tarantino begs to differ. This video shows us how a shot from below can create a strange intimacy with perplexing characters.
Ed Choi regards Lomography as one of the best things that happened to him. In this interview, the latest member to join the roster of LomoGurus talks about how cross processing slide films sparked a great friendship, taking instant photos in Himalayas, and creating the perfect double exposure photograph.
The second trailer for "Star Wars:Episode VII - The Force Awakens" has the internet abuzz in the last last few hours. To join in on the fun, we scoured our archives and the cyberspace for some Star Wars treasures. Think Princess Leia and her double in that glorious gold costume, plus a photo of the new cast in roundtable discussion.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
