JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 02.13.21
This week was about water, in all its various properties.
It fell from the sky in various forms.
I walked on it, twice.
I shoveled it as hard pack.
I shoved it as a slushy mess.
I slide on it.
I slipped on it.
I cooked with it
I photographed it.
I stood under it, streaming and steaming.
I drank it.
So, yes, this week was all about water.
This Week’s Links:
What I Read This Week: I FINALLY finished The Five Red Herrings and The Bloody Spur. They both weren’t bad, but I just could not seem to speed them up.
What I Started Reading This Week: To Live and Die in LA by former US Secret Service agent Gerald Petievich and the semiautobiographical novel from Edmund White, The Beautiful Room Is Empty
What I Watched This Week: Miami Vice, Season 5, Episode 17, Freefall, the two-part series finale. Possibly THE show that defined the 1980s. Been watching it every night on one of our cable channels since last August. I have a new and better appreciation for it – interesting character arcs, film noir elements, the use of music, of course. Seasons 1 and 2 are stellar.
NY Times: Risking Everything To Come To America
Watch (10 min): David Burnett On Assignment
Chatting The Pictures: Stunning photos of vaccine vials being made.
TED Watch: Sebastião Salgado, who had a birthday this week, and the silent drama of photography
Listen: Grant Scott talks about Irving Penn, photojournalism and the importance of those who came before us.
Remembering: Bruno Barbey would have turned 80 today. Here’s a post about some time I spent with him in South Africa.
Birthday: The Stone Pony turned 47 this week. Reminded me of the wonderful oral history that Nick Corasaniti wrote for the NY Times in 2018…and the very cool photo that ends the piece.
