Okay, so these first two are somewhat tongue-in-cheek.
The sh*t says meme has come to photography. (Now, one for writers, please?)
This morning’s xkcd comic was spot on. (Especially with the hover comment – just move your mouse to anywhere over the image.)
When we think of the depression, the dust bowl years, and early WWII, those impressions are all in black & white. The pictures looks timeless, but somehow not of our time.
There is a collection of colour positive (slide) photos in the Library of Congress that give an entirely different view. The Denver Post has 70 of them on their website, and the pictures are gorgeous.
Definitely worth a look. I’m especially drawn to the close portraits. And the trains series in the middle. There’s also an awesome “Rosie the Riveter” toward the end.
