They caught my eye while I was resting in bed with my head tilted sideways. I stared at the screws and began to see the face of a rasta man with braided hair. And no, I did not set this shot up.

Found Faces is one of those light-hearted photobooks that compiles photos taken by fun-loving photographers from all over the world. It’s a celebration of the artist in all of us — and it’s sure to make you smile. The focus of this book is the art of finding “faces” in unexpected places — and the combined result is a riot of quirky points of view.

It includes the work of over 90 photographers from 26 different countries, along with their often-humorous reflections on their particular discoveries.

This would be an ideal book to share with a beginning photographer — dozens of examples demonstrating simple ways to “see” differently in the world that’s all around us.

I think I have an addiction with flight…

Reflecting with some coworkers earlier today, I think it’s safe to say I have an obsession with all things flight related.

Case in points:

  1. I’ve been on over 50 flights so far this year for a total of almost 300 hours in actual flight (not including layovers / TSA hassle time / etc).
  2. I’ve been indoor skydiving spending over 3 hours total in free fall “flight” in a wind tunnel so far this year in 7 cities around the globe (Hollywood, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Nashua NH, and Dubai)
  3. I’ve built up a decent sized (nine so far) fleet of multi-rotor helicopters  and have spent upwards of 50 hours flying them this calendar year.

Considering the fact that 330 hours is about the same as 33+ full days and I have barely missed much work due to the above, I think it’s safe to say that the majority of my non-work hours have been consumed by something related to flight.

Ok, step #1 complete. I’ve admitted I have an addiction. Now what is step #2?
