Cycling: 650 Hours, 8100 km A couple of weeks back, I posted the images I created from the GPS logs of my five years of recumbent cycling.

We first used this technique in a Boston Magazine piece, Flickr of Hope, that appeared in March 2009. Prints are available through Imagekind. The two of us see the world as a stream of color, and in 2009 we finally had a chance to draw the river in our heads. We began with a collection of photographs of the Boston Common taken from Flickr.

Future - The man who tried to photograph thoughts and dreams Spare a thought for poor Madame Darget. How she must have sighed when her husband bounded over to the sofa in his office where she was attempting to rest. In his hands, he clutched a box of photographic plates. “I am going to put out the lamp and try to take a fluidic print over my forehead,” Louis Darget later reported himself as telling her. “I will hand you a plate for you to do it as well.” Top 10 Beautiful Maps and Projects I’ve always been inspired by beautiful topographic and world maps.
