In Amsterdam

Tram

I’ve been in Amsterdam for the last couple weeks, working, and exploring a new city. This is one of my favorite photos, so far.

I came out in time for Asymconf and I’m hanging around through this week to drop in on The Next Web. Overall it has been a great trip. I really love this city (it’s my first time here), and while my work schedule is full, leaving little room for tourist activities, I’m enjoying the change of scenery.

I’ve been lazy about updating my Flickr or Tumblr accounts, but I’m @gb on Instagram if you want to follow along there.

Ruins of Detroit

Beautiful Destruction

Ruins of Detroit

I can’t get over some of these images. It’s like they walked straight out of an apocalyptic movie set. I hope something is being done to preserve some of these buildings for better days.

That said, as one commenter on Yewknee’s blog (where I found this collection) noted, the politics surrounding these types of photo series are rather contentious. These photos don’t represent all of Detroit. And, sometimes, a single blighted building might exist in an otherwise thriving neighborhood. It’s all about how you frame it.

Oh, and do yourself a favor and skip the comments section if you click through to the Denver Post blog to see the rest of the photos.

Alex Stoddard, 365

Alex Stoddard, 365

I’ve seen several noteworthy 365 self-portrait series on flickr lately—one favorite is Grant Heinlein’s, but Alex Stoddard might take the cake. He tries incredibly emotional and involved concepts and you can tell he’s really stretching himself. Many of them are perfectly executed, resulting in haunting, gorgeous imagery. Oh, and he’s 17 years old.
