Ah… Cool, Cool Halloween

Last year for Halloween we sat on our front porch sipping wine while the neighborhood parents strolled by with their kids.  One of the advantages of living in Dallas is the weather in October.  However, with temperatures in the 100’s here in Texas for what seems like years, I’ve forgotten how nice the winters are here.

Luckily, I found Matthew Kirscht’s art that’s inspired by vintage holiday imagery.   I love this style, and makes me feel like a kid again (in cooler weather).

Flickr Video: A Good Thing?

In case you haven’t heard, flickr has added video capabilites. Of course there are plenty of nay-sayers, and being a fan of great photography, I can understand how adding video could dilute what makes flickr great. Of course, there are lots of talented artists out there on flickr who can make motion an asset for flickr. I know I’m looking forward to seeing more like “The Blue Samurai”, a collaboration of flickrite ArtWerk and Manel Ortega. I’ve been following ArtWerk’s flickr feed for awhile now, and it’s nice to see another aspect of his talent. Not to mention some groovy sounds by Substatic.
