Who was Meinhardt Raabe?

"As coroner, I must aver
I thoroughly examined her.
And she’s not only merely dead,
She’s really most sincerely dead."

Another favorite image....

This very touching image by a Chinese photographer named Jianbin Huo, has been hanging on my wall for the last two years

From Audubon Magazine:

"As the tale is told, the 12-week-old monkey was separated from its mother and close to death when it was rescued by a refuge worker. But the little guy simply wouldn’t perk up until the bird became its inseparable friend. This sweet photograph of the orphan and its companion was snapped by chance by Jianbin Huo, a young Chinese photojournalist visiting the island".

PS. By the way, Jianbin Huo's birthday is on April 6th.

A beautiful series of images from Jamey Stillings

Last year at a Leadership Conference in Detroit for ASMP, I met a photographer from New Mexico, Jamey Stillings. Check out his images from his personal project to document the "Bridge at Hoover Dam". 
The images are very beautiful and sometimes surreal.
