Well, sort of. A few months ago a write of the Chinese magazine Homeland contacted me through Flickr, and asked if they could put one of my pictures on their cover. I though, why not? Getting on a magazine cover without even being famous or a model? Why, yes!
Now, I didn’t get anything out of really, no money or anything, but honestly, I don’t care that much. I’m very happy to have even been considered.
Here’s the cover in its full glory:
Originally they wanted to go for a different photo, but I can live with this one, especially because it has the old-school photography book on it. East-German classic.
There’s two full pages with more of my photos, and some text which I can only hope, resembles the interview I gave them.
The magazine looks pretty nice design-wise, and is printed on really cool paper. I’d recommend checking it out, but unless you’re in China in the next weeks, that might not work out for you.
I’m imagining millions of Chinese people googling my name right now.
Meet my new desktop background.
Check out Marc Johns’ amazing Post-It art. He’s on Flickr, has a website, a blog, and he sells his art, even the original Post-Its. Seriously simple yet awesome stuff.
With the new Twitter search, nothing’s hidden anymore. Unless of course, you’re keeping your stream private. Anyways, yesterday I checked the Instapaper blog for news, and voila, I found myself looking at myself. That is so meta.
Instapaper is great, by the way. And it’s true, only after having bought an iTouch is it of real use to me.
Boobies, HDR, babies, naturey macro crap, and most importantly, yellow wellies.
Yeah, I do have another blog. But while it is mostly for nerdy things I felt like I needed to have an outlet for things not related to my work, like photography, random scraps, useless trivia, and other things. These things don’t really fit in with all the nerdy stuff.
Why the weird domain name?
Because I love the Holga. It’s a simple yet amazing camera. I shot rolls and rolls of film on my last trip, and the Holga shots simply came out as the best ones.
What’s with the default WordPress design?
Not to worry, I have a whole group of designers working on a killer design for the blog.
So here it goes.
