My roadtrip postings will be republished in a seperate blog called “On the Road”. Makes it easier to read. Have fun!
Welcome to On the Road, where I’m blogging about my roadtrips. On the Road is a spin-off of my primary photo blog, At Home He’s A Tourist. Most entries will be reblogs, only with a fancy design!
I’m going to spend my summer vacation in the U.K. this year. My planned route looks like this:
Photos will follow in June 2013.
Not much going on here recently; last time I published a photo on this blog was in January. Here’s why:
Posts to this blog used to be generated in a semi-automated process. A custom PHP script that I wrote looked up new photos in my Flickr stream, added some meta information taken from the photo’s EXIF data (such as date, time, and place the picture was taken, the camera that was used etc.) and queued the blog post to be published on touristathome.tumblr.com. All my PHP script had to do was calling some of the Tumblr API functions. Pretty straightforward.
A few weeks ago, Tumblr changed its authentification process. I’m currently struggling with the new Tumblr API and the OAuth authentification process to make my PHP script work again.
Others might encounter the same problem. Maybe the following links will help:
The year 2012 was a cyclone of news. Through the highs and lows, LightBox presents a look back on 2012 through 366 images, picking a photo for each day of the past year (and one for the leap day).
"The world just does not fit conveniently into the format of a 35mm camera."
"Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter."
"Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph is like consulting the laws of gravity before going for a walk."
"If I knew how to take a good photograph,
I’d do it every time."
Detroit used to be the industrial capital of the 20th century. Its decay is documented by French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre.
Marchand and Meffre write:
The state of ruin is temporary by nature, the volatile result of the end of an era and the fall of empires. […] Photography appeared to us as a modest way to keep a little bit of this ephemeral state.
The Ruins of Detroit is one the most beautiful photography books recently published.
