Photography has been a very strong passion of mine. But, why? There is a beauty in being able to capture an instance in life that in turn becomes part of history. Being able to capture not only a still of that instance but also the passion, the energy, the life that is packed into that instance is what all photographers strive to achieve.
To be able to make your photograph affect another person’s life is your ultimate goal. In effect letting them see and experience a part of what you have. Making them feel like they were right next to you when the picture was taken.
In this episode of “In harms Way“, we have a look at two war photographers who go into the Gaza strip and get a glimpse into what they experience.
This video is a great example of a war photographers life, I don’t necessarily agree with the ending of it and would have liked to see what pictures were finally used by the Israeli News media that purchased them and in what context, but nevertheless its a great insight into a conflict/war photographers life.
About two years ago I wrote a post about the effects of cellphones and how two Russian guys cooked an egg using two cell phones. It seems that since then some astute scientists (aka students of physics / college blokes fooling around) have learn how to use a cellphone to make popcorn.
The good news: you never have to watch a movie with out popcorn anymore. The bad news: holy kaboozers. what the hell is it doing to my privates when i have my phone in my pocket and it rings?
Check out the video of how these brave researches popped their corn
This is bound to offend some people but it is pretty funny. My Apologies to those who no do find this funny, but as a person growing up in Sri Lanka and learning 3 languages at the same time while growing up I can really appreciate how hard it is to learn a new language as well as how funny it can be.
