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.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
