Some snaps from the past few weeks. I have not been keeping so current. In all likelihood I will be retiring this blog soon, as entering new chapters of life, etc.. Anyway, all of these are from the X100s.

Horizon is off on this skyline shot, and I don’t even care.

Had some pre-NYIAS fun last night. Went to the launch of the Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli edition. Good times.

Dia Beacon

2015-shotbyjake.com-5531

Saturday was snowy and gloomy. A perfect museum day. It was my first time to Dia Beacon. I had been wanting to check it out for a while. It is housed in an old factory with tons of huge windows and skylights, allowing in tons of cloudy diffused natural light.

The Last Stand

Came across these awesome images from this excerpted Wired article:

 

Marc Wilson spent four years chasing the ghosts of World War II for his series The Last Stand, wandering 23,000 miles of shoreline to capture eerie photos of bunkers and blockades that still dot the landscape.

During the war, the Allies and Nazis fortified the coast of Northern Europe with pillboxes, gun emplacements and huge barriers meant to repel ships and tanks. They were largely forgotten after the invasion of Normandy, abandoned as the Allies pressed on toward Germany. Nearly 80 years later, only ruins remain.

About Coffee

coffee

There was a lot of content relating to coffee today in my news feed. I’m not exactly sure why. Probably coincidence. I found it all relatively interesting for various reasons. This photo/audio essay explores the idea that the ubiquity of Starbucks is somehow diminishing people’s experience when traveling the globe.

This article relays the findings of several studies about how caffeine affects people depending on their genetic make up, and other factors.

…and finally, Nowness ran the video below. Not only is it quirky and interesting, it also has a really nice visual aesthetic.
