Well this doesn’t look very safe, does it? Firecrackers burst around celebrants at the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket, Thailand…

See more of Time’s Pictures of the Week and visit Boston.com’s The Big Picture too. TBP has the most stunning images each and every time I visit, I’m never disappointed. Check out Worker resting on bales of cotton by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, one of my favourites in the set from his Earth from Above series.

Well, Matt doesn’t bite, Matt rocks!

Check out these humorous snaps from his recent trip to the Long Beach Outdoor Antique & Collectible Market. I greatly enjoyed “foreclosure” and, of course “Jesus on a pelt”.

Such good times!

Foreclosure
I didn’t have the heart to tell this doll family that they will probably be defaulting on their mortgage and moving into a Barbie Camper shortly. It’s happening all over California really. Besides, that’s the most haunted San Francisco Victorian Dollhouse I’ve ever seen. I bet Karen Black and Bette Davis are in the attic. Watch yourself.

I give you Jesus On A Pelt.

I’ll let you absorb that for a minute.

So yes, there is he, the redeemer, the liberator, the savior, artfully painted on racoon? Fox? Squirrel? And whyyyyyyyyy? Surely there’s a story behind this and when you walk the aisles you realize that there are always a million stories behind these objects. But this really takes the cake. I’ve seen him on cars, stickers, bodegas, t-shirts and even tortillas, but animal fur is completely new to me. He really does work in mysterious ways.

I love it!!

Head over to Matt Armendariz to see his professional portfolio (he shoots awesome, awesome, awesome images of food…yum).

BTW, Matt, congrats on your wedding!

The folks over at digital Photography School have a great list. Not that these are crazy, new ideas – but getting a reminder now and then never hurt and they are well laid out, with examples too.

Make your shots better by keeping these 10 pointers in mind. If those aren’t enough, there’s a follow up 10.

(do these rules apply to snaps of doggies too?)

Properly Tanned! Image by Xirannisx via Flickr

I come from the period where people get properly tanned.”

Best. Line.

Check out the secret diary of Mario Testino, globe-trotting photographer. He’s famous. And well tanned. And speaks of how he “likes Prince Charles as much as the street cleaner” which sounds like a dig but is really a compliment to all British folk!

Thx to The Independent for this one, just a little light reading and a bit of humour. Ta-ra!

Our CEO mentioned the Press Photo Awards to me and I was absolutely entranced watching the photographers discuss their award-winning images.

Stunning photos, amazing stories. I can’t wait to hear them all.

Listening to the photographer Platon discussing his Time photo shoot of President Vladimir Putin was emotionally moving. From how he finds photography to be so intertwined with psychology to the exhausting week that built up to him finally getting approval (with less than 10 minutes to take the shot) – his story changed the way I view the image.

Anyway, go, listen. Platon’s story is just one of a series of incredible tales.
