Ode to Rod Mar

En: Rod Mar is a photojournalist at The Seattle Times and he was awarded 1st prize in the Olympics Feature category at 66th POYi. I like his picture very much and it was stored forever into my mind. I took a picture that looks alike, somehow...and, of course, at a lower level.

Ro: Rod Mar este fotojurnalist la The Seattle Times iar in 2009 a castigat premiul I la categoria Olympics Feature, la concursul Pictures of the Year(POYi) editia 66. Fotografia mi-a placut foarte mult si mi-a ramas intiparita in minte. Sambata, 19 martie, la un concurs de judo pentru copii am surprins o poza asemanatoare, pastrand proportiile, desigur.

LightBox, by TIME Magazine

TIME magazine's photo department has recently launched the new Lightbox blog and it looks like a brilliant addition to TIME's photo offerings. One of the sections of the new blog is called In Progress, which promises exclusive look at new work. I strongly recommend this blog along with their Photo Essays Gallery.

Departamentul foto al revistei TIME a lansat de curand noul blog foto Lightbox, ceea ce este cu adevarat un lucru excelent pentru sectiunea foto a revistei. Una din sectiunile noului blog se numeste In Progress prin care vom fi la curent cu munca fotografilor de zi cu zi. Recomand acest blog impreuna cu galeria de eseuri Time.
