Maasai Wedding Day, Kenya Photograph by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher. A single tear marks the moment of farewell for lavishly beaded Nosianai as she leaves her family home in the Loita Hills of southern Kenya. Wedding-day tears may express true sadness among Maasai girls, who submit to arranged marriages with much older men whom they barely know.

Beautiful colors in this photo. Inspiration for a color palette in a room/home can come from anywhere. The colors in this photo could easily fit into a comfortable bedroom or living room.
“I thought of you and how you love this beauty, And walking up the long beach all alone I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder As you and I once heard their monotone. Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me The cold and sparkling silver of the sea -- We two will pass through death and ages lengthen Before you hear that sound again with me.” ― Sara Teasdale
Perfect color combination; inspired by nature.

For millionaire French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn, photography was a way of cataloging the human “tribes” of the world and constructing a vibrant, colorful quilt of our shared humanity.

Vietnam //How the color photograph took over the world – Albert Kahn's early-20th-century catalogue of humanity
Indochina - In 1909 the millionaire French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn embarked on an ambitious project to create a colour photographic record of, and for, the peoples of the world. As an idealist and an internationalist, Kahn believed that he could use the new autochrome process, the world's first user-friendly, true-colour photographic system, to promote cross-cultural peace and understanding.

A picture that tells a story, black and white. (NOT the story we want to tell with the cigarette..) Sally Mann. This photo, titled Candy Cigarette, not just displays something, it tells a story. It is both emotional and beautiful. This is what the originality of black-and-white-photography is all about.
"Candy Cigarette" Yet another world-famous female photographer, Sally Mann’s black and white art caused a good dose of controversy in its day. First off, she became well-known for the photographic series of portraits featuring her children.
Sally Mann - Candy Cigarette. "the photo not just displays something, it tells a story. It is both emotional & beautiful. This is what the originality of black and white photography is all about" Vitaly Friedman. Black and White Photography. Smashing Magazine
Sally Mann - I like this shallow depth of focus on this little, but mature girl holding a candy cigarette. The white dress really pops and the black and white makes the girl jump out at you.
Sally Mann Photography: Sally Mann uses black and white photos, mainly of children, to comment on social borders between what is right and what in immoral in out society.
By Sally Mann - "Girl With Candy Cigarette" I am lucky enough to have seen an exhibit with this as well as other photos from her "Still Time" collection. Gorgeous. She really plays with the boundaries between childhood and adulthood.

High speed photo of a bubble popping. This is such an awesome picture! I'm pretty sure I've thought about how this would look in stopped-motion at some point in my life. (I always have been a curious child...) Now I know!

This photograph is so interesting because you never see the process or motion things go through. This photo shows a bubble popping which no one ever sees up close in slow or stopped motion(s) that bubbles go through to pop.

Even during the Arirang Mass Games in North Korea, the ultimate expression of the state ideology, an individual can still sometimes stand out from the crowd and break free of the collective. If only just for a moment. (Photo and caption by Brendyn Zachary) - #20 of National Geographic's International Photography Contest 2009
Yet I don't know what to say, except for that I just love this humanly patterned phenomenon. Photo and caption by Brendyn Zachary.

This picture was added to Pinterest from a blog on blogspot called "Dancing Branflakes". I love the symmetry in this picture. At a glance, it might look as though you are seeing double, but if you look closer, one ballerina is blurred slightly, making it clear that it is a reflection. The fact that the photo is black and white also makes it harder to find the reality in the photograph, giving it a mysterious side. The pose of the dancer also adds mystery, because you cannot see her face, and her back is bare. However, you can tell she is a ballerina, because of her tutu. This picture is a great example of how design can be used to add complexities and questions to a photograph.
