“(1910) - Photograph of dirigible race in the Dominguez Air Meet, Dominguez Field, Los Angeles, 1910. Two football-shaped zeppelins race across the skies, flying at low altitude. Each of them has single pilots. The pilots stand on a skeletal structure consisting of metal bars that is attached to the balloon with wires. Spectators (or judges) stand below on the plain field watching the zeppelins race. Further in the sky is a hot-air balloon with the phrase “all in the Examiner.”” (via)
Photographer Adam Kennedy has a hobby that’s pretty unique among the photo projects we’ve seen. He photographs fire hydrants and Photoshops them into planets. That sounds random, but the results are actually quite neat.
The photograph above shows a before-and-after of what his original photos look like and what he turns the rusty old hydrants into.
The images above were taken while Scott Rinckenberger was on a 12 month back country skitrip. He writes about the incredible journey:
I incorporate photography into adventures. I carry a very small kit and try to cover as much ground as possible on foot, skis and bikes. It is through this kinetic mode that I find my images, or they find me.
