I have been doing this special almost every week for 5 years, finding the best photographs on the internet, had photographers present their own photos, and even did a photos of the week myself, and showcased my own photos.
When you go to the main search page of your internet carrier, and type in the search bar: “Photos of the Week”, you will get photos, mostly, from news agencies. Photos that have made the news, whether good or bad. Now I have always wanted to have a good reputation with my followers, and provide them with “artistic” type photos. And that is what I intend to keep doing. I clicked on CNN, Huffington Post, The Guardian, BBC news, etc. and all I get are the news stories. For some reason, that does not inspire me. I do, however, admire the photographers who are crazy enough to get photos when even their life may be in danger. The news photographers have guts, that’s for sure.
So, today, I am presenting a collection of photos from: UNSPLASH – Photos for everyone. This is a place where good photographers can go and display their photos, and then people can use them freely, or the photographers are hoping that their name will get out there. I have used the website: PEXELS before, and found their photos to be a place where amateur photographers can display their photos, as well as a few advanced, or professional photographers can show their photos. I am looking over the photos from Unsplash, and think they are a very good source for good quality images. So, enjoy some of these photos and think of the reason why I would pick these photos. Hopefully, you will be reminded of what makes a good photograph.
It’s a beautiful world we live in. It takes good photographers to capture this beauty. A learned photographer is one who captures feeling.
