Lunch on a skyscraper: The history of a famous photograph This is the original glass-plate negative of the iconic photo of construction workers eating lunch on a girder during the construction of Rockefeller Center's RCA building in 1932. Today, those of us who remember using analog cameras remember taking photographs on film — literally a plastic (or, earlier, paper or celluloid) strip covered with a film of light-sensitive chemicals. But once upon a time, when you took a photograph, you took it on a piece of glass. The glass could be as small as 3 inches by 5 inches, or as big as 11" x 17". Originally, each piece of glass had to be dipped into an emulsion of chemicals on site, and the photograph taken before the chemicals had dried — a time on the order of minutes.

Pictures of Moments Speak More than Thousand Words...... Picture can speak thousands of words. Random pictures of insignificant moments always been the most important and most valuable. Photographers and painters beautifully imprint huge number of events, objects and types. How did we fake photos before Photoshop? Here I'd like to talk a little bit about some of the most basic manipulative techniques used in classic photography. All of these are done in the camera or in the darkroom. A double or multiple exposure can be made either on the negative "in camera," or on the paper, in the darkroom. In camera multiple exposures are elementary and use a tripod, to capture the same scene twice from one position, and basic math, to calculate the final exposure divided by number of frames, for a lesser exposure for each individual shutter click.

These jellyfish photos are some of the most gorgeous underwater images we've seen in ages Seahorses aren't horses as well, but they're still called that. At least "seahorse" as a name has the "sea" suffix, as does "sea star" (the proposed alternative to "starfish." Since the word "jellies" is already used for sugary fruit condiments, I suggest "seajellies" to avoid confusion, linguistic and culinary. (Wasn't it Charles Stross's _Accelerando_ with a starship crew drinking jellyfish shots? Albeit an uploaded crew with VR beverages aboard their soda can-sized starship.)
