Surf’s up!

At least that’s what Sung Lee would have us think. I love the first image in our set, titled “Board Meeting.” Lee got together a couple of cheap suits, a surfboard and a GoPro set to take a photo every two seconds to make this picture. GoPros are such fun cameras – they’re small, durable, and make decent images, with a signature distortion around the edges due to the wide angle of view. The challenge is issued – what kind of trouble can you get a GoPro into?

Another very cool image from this month is actually a combination of six images. The full animated GIF of this hummingbird is not to be missed.

Other standouts from this month include Holly Ellis’ image of a television framing two broken chairs in Slab City, and John Boylan’s portrait of a girl shielding her face with an American flag during a May Day parade in downtown L.A. One wonders what’s going through her head at that moment. Ellis’s image is a hint of the photographic potential in the desert, with Slab City, Salvation Mountain and the Salton Sea in close proximity, there’s a wealth of images to be had. Now that the weather’s getting cooler, it’s that much easier to head out on a desert adventure as well.

Feel like there’s a photo I left out, or one that doesn’t belong in the set? Sound off in the comments. See you next month.
