flickr Highlight: Nuno Serrão’s photostream

The goal of this series is to share with you photostreams that I think are interesting, quirky, or simply just stunning. I find Nuno Serrão’s images to be beautiful and expressive,  yet calming. They compel you to stop and stare. Nuno Serrão is a designer, creative director, and founder of URB, an advertising agency for urban entities. Check out their website, their portfolio is definitely worth viewing.

For those of you who don’t know, Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application that allows individuals to upload and share their images with the world (or the select few they choose). Shared content can range from pictures taken at a birthday party to photos used for a professional portfolio.

flickr Highlight: Harpagornis’s Photostream

This is the first in the series of which I call flickr Highlights. For those of you who don’t know, Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application that allows individuals to upload and share their images with the world (or the select few they choose). Shared content can range from pictures taken at a birthday party to photos used for a professional portfolio. You can add contacts, join groups, and persons can comment on your photos.

Anyway, the goal of this series is to share with you photostreams that I think are interesting, quirky, or simply just stunning. Thomas Bölke’s (Hargapornis) photostream falls under the category of interesting and stunning. I deduce he is a biologist with a passion for photography. I say deduce because his personal website is in German. German is number 5 on my list of languages to learn after Spanish, Italian, French, and Portuguese. I encourage you to sit back, relax, and enjoy his slideshows particularly in the categories of Nature, Lightpaintings/NightshotsCreative, and HDR.

My Schmap Berlin Guide Entry

My Schmap Entry on the iPhoneI was pleased to find out that one of my images on Flick’r of the Frank Gehry Vitra Design Museum was shortlisted for inclusion in the eighth edition of the Schmap Berlin Guide. Schmap guides are free to readers and entered pictures are clearly attributed to the photographer and a link is provided to the original image on Flick’r.

Schmap offers digital travel guides for over two hundred destinations around the world. Versions can be explored online or on various smart phones like the iPhone. Users can also create and share their maps, trip itineraries, or reviews. Later, I was even happier to hear that my image had made it into the guide. I have included a view of what it would look like on the iPhone.
