London East End: The pictures, taken by photographer Horace Warner 100 years ago in Spitalfields in London’s East End, were later used by social campaigners to illustrate the plight of the poorest children in London.

Photo by Alice M. Boughton, ~ 1910... The woman on the left is deceased while the woman on the right looks to be holding her. They look to be sisters. This is a beautiful picture though.

Oscar G. Rejlander - Poor Jo, c.1860. “Poor Jo” is one of Reijlander’s most popular works, and its subject can be considered the original poster child for the homeless. Using a boy from the local Ragged School for the poor, Rejlander re-created a scene he had once witnessed in London. Hailed by critics for its “eloquent pathos and expression,”the photograph aroused sympathy from a society increasingly aware of the destitution in its midst, thanks to works by Charles

LA Cypress: Etier. Several miles southwest of Mangham, LA, is a cypress swamp.   Locals drive by this scene daily and seldom look twice. When I set up this shot, I thought I was seeing double. It was exciting to fit both the subject and its entire reflection into the frame.  It isn’t hard to find a setting like this in Louisiana. Sometimes all you have to do is look out the kitchen window. Sometimes you simply have to take your foot off the accelerator and stop and smell the roses or a swamp.

Big Bend Sphinx: Crawford. I had been back in the Big Bend Mountains, photographing some of the wildest and most foreboding scenery I had ever captured on film. Without warning, one of those unpredictable desert rainstorms came rolling down on top of us. I turned around, and saw the sun setting behind a strange rock formation I had previously failed to see in bright daylight. It reminded me of the sphinx. It became one of my favorite photographs.

Sepia Dawn by Cathy Marshall. Sometimes a sunrise has very little sun. This foggy morning suggested the tone of the rest of the day, revealing itself slowly with the dawn. I love the sepia tone of the light and the reflections in the water and the layers of light in the coastal Carolina silhouette of nature.

SkyFlyer by Cathy Marshall. Sometimes an unintentional shot results in a graphic combination of color and movement that appeal on many levels. I was shooting this sunset on a coastal Carolina waterway, and an accidental click resulted in this exciting fiery light show.

Two Sun Morning by Cathy Marshall. This photo of a dawn on Cedar Lake captures some of my favorite graphic elements; foggy muted light with hints of pink glowing color, reflections on water, meditation of the moment where you feel blessed to observe, framed by a silhouette… perfection.

Photograph by William R. Curstinger National Geographic Lightning Can Strike Twice Cloud-to-ground lightning bolts are a common phenomenon—about 100 strike Earth’s surface every single second—yet their power is extraordinary. Each bolt can contain up to one billion volts of electricity. This enormous electrical discharge is caused by an imbalance between positive and negative charges. During a storm, colliding particles of rain, ice, or snow increase this imbalance and of...
