Flying Houses, Houses of Ill Repute, and Mating Performance with Photography


I'm going out of town for a few days, but I hope to be able to post once or twice when I have down time. In the meantime, enjoy another magazine with high quality design and aesthetics that incorporates photography...it shines primarily offline, but the online component is pretty ingenious at its best. 2wice Magazine started out as a more targeted dance performance publication with a special connection to photography, but it's evolved to more specifically act on "the desire to see film, design, art, fashion, and photography brought into proximity with dance and performance" as the editors noted in the introduction to the seventh issue.

Because I've been photographing dancers and have always had a special interest in dance of all forms (and because I also appreciate good design), I'm especially partial to 2wice, which has won several awards. Those who could care less about performance or names like Tharp or Taylor will still find a number of clever articles and much to admire about the design, but the photography may not be anything special, especially since the online version really skimps on the images for each article. It was nice to see a few images from Timothy Hursley's photographs of legal brothels in Las Vegas; he has a book out full of similarly highly saturated images...the book is almost too much of a good (or not so good) thing, based on a quick browse through in my local Barnes and Noble, but online there isn't quite enough. The issue I have with the book is that it's almost too straightforward in its presentation of the photographs. Online, though, there's more of an Egglestonian buzz to the color and detail in the few well selected images that are available.

Even more entertaining and abundant are Peter Garfield's "Mobile Home" images, fairy-tale like photographs of airborne houses in the throes of destruction. There's a good selection in the "Glow" issue on 2wice's website (click on "Night Flight"), but you can also find a comprehensive selection of work here.

Photographers slumming around the site might especially find the "Camera" issue of 2wice to their liking...not a lot of actual art photography, but articles on Martin Parr, the Twiggy campaign photographed by Sokolsky, and personal reflections on Zeiss microscopes and Minox cameras.

Hi

Even Black Hat Marketers have a code,
(although most of it is how to make Google cry and put your competition in the poor house)
you can download it here for free ... (27 page underground PDF)

http://blackhat.1add.net

And don't worry, you can keep your wallet in your pants AND you don't even have to opt in.

Consider it a gift from my friend Howie Schwartz.
It's a blueprint on how he annihilates everything in his path when he decides to enter a niche.

Better grab this now, because he said he's only going to allow 100
marketers who aren't afraid of their own shadows to have it.

http://blackhat.1add.net

Take care,
Jhon

PS After you read the PDF - make sure you check out the below as the live training is starting . . .

Hey :)

Amazing weight loss stories here,
And here you can buy Anatrim
http://www.zmeii.com/?toxaawgjgw

I've always had trouble with my weight ever since I was young. Of course I tried all the "best" fat loss products, nothing helped very much. It wasn't til I tried Anatrim that I saw the pounds seriously start to melt away! Nothing helped me lose weight faster. I literally saw 15 pounds melt away within the first few weeks! There's nothing more exciting than watching pounds disappear, especially when you've tried all sorts of different methods and products before. I've since read up on Anatrim and am amazed at the number of people who have benefited from its amazing results. I'm halfway to my goal, Anatrim will get me the rest of the way ;)

Hey forum members

I just became a member of this forum

Great job forum crew!

Just recently I read that there is a treatment for diabetes on www.healthcaredaily.org
Can diabetes seriously be cured? The source looks like a reliable healthcare news website

Has anyone tried beating diabetes this way?

Thanks
