Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them. I shake their presence off in hopes that I embodied what they needed, that in some way I managed to help them in their quest for a perfect image. Michael Tittel’s photographs satisfy my curiosity for all the photos of me I do not know, that I have not seen. His portrayal of people touches on the humor in coincidence, and brings an evocative narrative to the casual.

How to Make Difficult Conversations Easy: 7 Steps From a Clinical Psychologist Someone is screaming in your face at the top of their lungs. Or ranting angrily and you can’t get a word in edgewise.

ABOUT US Hi there! So here’s our story…. This is how it all started… From Newspapers, Magazines, Journals, Books to Websites, Blogs, Twitter Profiles and Quota accounts, we, just like the other youngsters, were attracted to the process of information assimilation and drawing conclusions based on those pieces of information.

You are one? You are alone? You are by yourself? - The scenic route back to Kathmandu with my imaginary friends.... Advertisement "Yes, yes, yes I know, I'm a billy no mates and have no friends", is what I felt like saying after the 6th person in two hours spoke or gestured, combined usually with a look of concern or confusion, to ask whether I was on my own. I was beginning to get the feeling that in everyday Nepal, ie. outside of the tourist bubble I'd been living in, perhaps women didn't travel on their own.... I was staying in Bandipur, some three hours from Pokhara, having decided to take the scenic route back to Kathmandu. I'd finished my Annapurna trek with a day being shaken around (as much as is possible when there are four squished into a row) in the back of various jeeps as we travelled a road that was in parts more rock and less road.

Égarements by Cerise Doucède With application, precision and humour, photographer Cerise Doucède created the series ‘Égarements’ (aberration) consisting of installations which represents each of our dreams and obsession or even fears. By shaping her own visions, she reproduces her version of reality and sublimates the most ordinary moments. Objects thus come to life around one or more figures, in intimate locations, at key moments of everyday life. Cerise Doucède creates scenes filled with objects suspended in the space, like pirouetting thoughts. All images © Cerise Doucède | Via: i-ref

Aquaculture Solaiman Sheik shows off the harvest from his father’s small pond near Khulna, Bangladesh: freshwater prawns, a profitable export. The family also raises fish in the pond and, in the dry season, rice fertilized by fish waste—a polyculture that has tripled output with little environmental downside. Photograph by Jim Richardson In a dark, dank warehouse in the Blue Ridge foothills of Virginia, Bill Martin picks up a bucket of brown pellets and slings them into a long concrete tank.
