Stunning images of the Los Angeles area Station Fire have been circulating for weeks now online and  in newspapers, as area residents and professional photographers alike seek to capture the drama of the blaze that has devistated homes and even taken the lives of brave firefighters here in Southern California. Digital Photographer editor and professional photographer, Lynne Eodice, happens to live very close to the area where a majority of the fire was concentrated last week, and captured the following images with her Canon EOS 5D Mark II full-frame D-SLR using a Canon EF 100-300mm lens on August 29, 2009, just a couple miles from her home.  See more of Lynne’s photos of the fire after the jump…

Polipics: Farewell Uncle Teddy

I can’t help but be extremely sad over the loss of Ted Kennedy. I’m going to Boston in three weeks and he won’t be there. My whole life he’s been there, and now he isn’t. His spirit is, of course, in all the work that he’s done in 47 years in the Senate.

For me his loss is bringing up many of my childhood memories:  His brother JFK when I was in Mrs. Silvera’s class in Lockhurst Drive Elementary. His brother Bobby when I was in Hale Junior High. Martin Luther King at the same time. My father when I was 17. It feels like we’ve lost America’s uncle, not just the family’s. We’ve lost the man who has fought for the rights of labor, the disenfranchised, and those who have been discriminated against.

Yes, he was wise to bestow his blessings and grace upon our current president, to be sure his legacy is honored in the healthcare work that is being done today, for tomorrow. Socialist? Hardly. Giving all Americans the right to decent healthcare? Providing an expectation of a decent quality of life? Priceless. Yet everybody wants to hang the pricetag out for battering and bruising. How do you put a pricetag on humanity?

What are you thoughts on the world without Ted Kennedy?

Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby

In keeping with our summer “travel” theme (yes, summer is still upon us, albeit hanging on by a thread), we’d like to point you to the new book, Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby (University of New Mexico Press), which features the photography of Santa Fe photographer Craig Varjabedian. In it, Varjabedian illustrates a hauntingly serene look at Northern New Mexico’s iconic Ghost Ranch (former stomping grounds of painter Georgia O’Keeffe), along with essays to accompany his stunning photographs (one penned by Ms. O’Keeffe all those years ago).
