Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) – World’s 1st Keyframe Animation Cartoon – Winsor McCay via Change Before Going Productions on YouTube

Watch this classic from the very beginning of film. — Douglas
 

Released on September 15th, 1914. Sometimes called the world’s oldest cartoon (erroneously), it is still the first to be created using keyframe animation. This movie required Winsor McCay and his assistant John A. Fitzsimmons (who traced the backgrounds) to create 10,000 drawings, which they inked on rice paper and mounted on cardboard.

Gertie is a dinosaur based on the Brontosaurus (nowadays known as Apatosaurus) skeleton in the American Museum of Natural History. McCay’s employer, William Randolph Hearst, was displeased with McCay’s success outside of the newspapers, and used his contractual power to reduce McCay’s stage activities.

Photographing Small Things – A Personal Voyage via Digital Photography School

September 2nd, 2019 Comments off

When you photograph an item for a marketing campaign, or to record its physical condition, it’s called product photography. This is a very specialized type of photography. While you may never be commissioned to photograph a commercial product, some of the techniques used in product photography may have relevance to your personal life.

Perhaps these techniques offer a solution to a problem many people don’t recognize – hanging on to reminders of people, places or events from the past.

Not your typical coloring books, for sure, but something that might give you a little erudition, as well as some relaxation. — Douglas
 

One can only color so many floral-trimmed affirmations before one begins to crave something slightly more perverse. An emaciated, naked, anthropomorphized mandrake root, say or…

Thy wish is our command, but be prepared to hustle, because today is the final day of Color Our Collections, a compellingly democratic initiative on the part of the New York Academy of Medicine.

Since 2016, the Academy has made an annual practice of inviting other libraries, archives, and cultural institutions around the world to upload PDF coloring pages based on their collections for the public’s free download.

Morning is over

Morning is over via Instagram

The last dregs of coffee in my mug tell me it is time to switch from my phone to my computer and get on with my daily work.

Since I bought the iPhoneXs I am able to do a lot of my morning routine from my phone But there comes a time in every day when I must retire to the computer desk.

Daniels and Fisher Tower, Denver, Colorado via Instagram

piazza-gae-aulenti-4

“Rising 330 feet above Sixteenth Street, the Daniels and Fisher Tower in Denver was based on St. Mark’s Campanile in Venice and opened in 1911 as a beacon drawing shoppers to the adjacent Daniels and Fisher department store. The Daniels and Fisher department store closed in 1958 and was demolished for Denver’s Skyline Urban Renewal Project in 1970–71, but the tower was spared and eventually converted into offices. The tallest structure in Denver for more than forty years after it opened, the tower continues to be one of the city’s most iconic buildings.” — Colorado Encyclopedia
