Saw this stunning image, which comes courtesy of NASA, and had to share. It takes many single frames that are compiled and edited into this one final image.

This stunning image by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features the spiral galaxy NGC 5643 in the constellation of Lupus (the Wolf). Looking this good isn’t easy; 30 different exposures, for a total of nine hours of observation time, together with the high resolution and clarity of Hubble, were needed to produce an image of such high level of detail and beauty.

NGC 5643 is about 60 million light-years away from Earth and has been the host of a recent supernova event (not visible in this latest image). This supernova (2017cbv) was a specific type in which a white dwarf steals so much mass from a companion star that it becomes unstable and explodes. The explosion releases significant amounts of energy and lights up that part of the galaxy.

The observation was proposed by Adam Riess, who (alongside Saul Perlmutter and Brian Schmidt) was awarded a Nobel Prize in physics in 2011 for his contributions to the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe.

We’re back on campus and masks are required, so let’s take a look at one of the most famous photographers who utilized masks, Ralph Eugene Meatyard.....
.
.
from David Zax for Smithsonian Magazine, —“Despite his self-proclaimed status as an amateur, Meatyard soon became known in serious photography circles. In 1956, his work was exhibited beside that of Ansel Adams, Aaron Siskind, Harry Callahan and Edward Weston. Five years later, Beaumont Newhall, then director of the George Eastman House, listed him in Art in America as one of the “new talents” in American photography. In the late 1960s, he collaborated with the writer Wendell Berry on The Unforeseen Wilderness, a book about Kentucky’s Red River Gorge. In 1973, the New York Times called him a “backwoods oracle.”

His last major project was The Family Album of Lucybelle Crater, a series of portraits of his wife and a rotating cast of family and friends; it was published posthumously in 1974. The project’s title was inspired by the Flannery O’Connor story “The Life You Save May Be Your Own,” in which a woman introduces both herself and her deaf-mute daughter as “Lucynell Crater.” In Meatyard’s book, everyone is masked, and everyone is identified as “Lucybelle Crater.” As Gowin says of his friend: “He was so many people all mixed up in one.””

Assignment: Find a background to help tell your story

Students from Booker T Washington painted the boards.
From @pmixonitup : “Many new and different displays of BLM murals have popped up all over the streets of downtown Dallas. Mural painters have started to paint on top of the boards that cover the windows of Neiman Marcus on Main St in downtown. The murals have caught the eyes of all that pass by; here is a local taking a selfie in front of the mural on Juneteenth 2020.

"I've got to tell you guys, when you get older you don't end up regretting the things that you did, you end up regretting the things that you didn't. So when you see that extra slice of chocolate cake, don't look back on it."

BROKEN WINDOWS-PAINTED MURALS. On May 30th a Protest turned violent and broke over a hundred windows from Deep Ellum to the West End, in Dallas, Texas. The Businesses boarded up the holes with plywood. The Dallas Army of artists and many others came to the rescue and painted them with Murals of love, hope, commerce and protest. I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of these artists and documented their stories and Murals. For the next month I am going to profile them and the beautiful Art. I also made a Documentary website. Enjoy.
Looking for a student photographer that’s looking to build their portfolio and experience. I’m currently in the process of doing a fashion blog and needing pictures. Thank you!
