Beautiful photographs from the series ‘Signs of American Life’ by Stephen Tamiesie / Words from the photographer:

My photographs analyze the relationship between humanity and environment in a muted and simple manner.  In the broadest sense, all humans identify with an environment, whether on a macro level of habitation and commerce or locally through interactions within ones culture.  My purpose in examining this relationship with a camera is to document the effects that humanity brands upon its environment, whether visible or obscured.  The resulting images illustrate a simultaneous portrait of domain, human existence and control – byproducts of a relationship that all individuals have with the space around them.

We speed

Götz Göppert is fascinated by the world of cars. Bonneville Salt Flats is several hundred kilometres from Salt Lake City. During Speedweek enthusiasts gathered to break speed records. In the centre of the salt desert, the Hot Rods raced on a completely flat track 24 metres wide and 16 km long. These customised cars, dating back to before 1949, break records in front of an audience who had come in their motorhomes expressly for the purpose. design photographer blog best website facebook tumblr wordpress

We give thanks

elephant cute child hugging an elefant true friendship love romance black and white photograph
Real friends stick together when times are tough, they’re always a shoulder to lean on, whether you can see them or not, a true friend might not have money, but they always have a lot of love to give, they like you for who you are, regardless of size, shape, color, species, or age. Real friends won’t let you do stupid things alone, they’ll give you a ride, go for a ride, keep an eye out for you, have your back, and stop you from doing something stupid. True friends won’t leave your side, they’ll keep you warm, give you a boost, be there when you’re down, protect you, and be your eyes when you can’t see. And real friends will never give up on you, let fame or money get to their head, and they’ll always tell it like it is. You actually want to hang out with your real friends in real life, and seriously listen to each other. True friends are forever.

storm hurricane sandy weather tornado typhoon tropical east coast USA New York evacuation hurricane storm rain waves alert 2012 warning wind black and white photograph
Hurricane Sandy churned the Atlantic Ocean as it barreled northward bringing fierce winds, drenching rains and flooding to the nation’s Northeast, where officials warned residents to stay home and ordered those along coastlines to head to high ground.
A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone or severe tropical storm that forms in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunderstorms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near the earth’s surface.
All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast also experience heavy rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June to November, with the peak season from mid-August to late October. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15 and ends November 30.
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles inland. Hurricane can produce winds exceeding 155 miles per hour as well as tornadoes and mircrobursts. Additionally, hurricanes can create storm surges along the coast and cause extensive damage from heavy rainfall. Floods and flying debris from the excessive winds are often the deadly and destructive results of these weather events. Slow moving hurricanes traveling into mountainous regions tend to produce especially heavy rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or mud slides. Flash flooding can occur due to intense rainfall.
Between 1970 and 1999, more people lost their lives from freshwater inland flooding associated with tropical cyclones than from any other weather hazard related to such storms.

We hope you stay safe..
