I've seen some of her work, she had a good eye. It's kind of mind boggling how many she accumulated, especially figuring she was working with film, and had to be throwing a percentage of the pictures she took away.

Most of the stuff they showed was street shots of people and areas now long gone in New York and other towns she lived and worked in.

she seemed to be a total eccentric especially towards the end of her life but what a photographer eye she had, any one interested in photography should try and see some of her work you tube has stuff and there's lots on the net.
I was blown away by some of the images.
I saw that. Liked it so much I googled her work. Captivating stuff

"Welcome To Union Glacier"

Quote:
Union Glacier is located in the southern Ellsworth Mountains of West Antarctica. This is a documentary about a small team of people who live and work on the glacier during the Antarctic summer.

In 2013 I was the filmmaker attached to the Scott Expedition - the journey that completed Captain Scott's final, ill-fated expedition from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back again. Our team passed through Union Glacier Camp on route to the starting point of Scott's Hut at Cape Evans, but after becoming stranded at the camp and working with the staff there; I decided to make this documentary.

For me, this film seems a bit like an antithesis to many expedition and adventure documentaries. There is no great achievement or record broken, nor any real challenge to overcome. Instead it concerns minor details; the everyday tasks of the staff that were made more special by the environment surrounding them. And in fact, I think that's what attracted me to make this film - the delightful trivialities of an average life, working in Antarctica.
Fullscreen is more better.



Or, watch it at .

The Death of Superman Lives - What Happened? An interesting behind the scenes look at the collapse of a blockbuster movie.

RE: Post #78:

WTF happened with that second video getting put there? That was just a link to the vid's Vimeo page. And why does it look different than the other one?

ETA: In the preview it just looks like a link. Weird.

The truth behind the Nevada Triangle.
I watched it on Netflix,

Apparently over 2000 aircraft, small ones, have dissapeared over the Sierra Nevada mountains since 1962, that's a lot of planes, interesting...

One of these was Steve Fossett, super rich guy and avid aviator, I remember the hoo ha and huge search effort at the time, but not really any of the follow up.

The documentary does a good job of mixing the general story of the loss of planes and this one famous incident. The bit I didn't know, they found Fossetts plane a few years later, random discovery by a hiker, some remains, and explained why it went down, there's a very strong air condition that can occur in certain conditions due to the geography, if you get in it you're done.

That's all nonsense, it's aliens I tell you, snatching planes right out of the air. They beam them up, transmogrify the planes into common air pollution and anal probe the pilots until they refuse to leave. honest.

Not on tv - via Youtube, but this was really fascinating (I thought). A case study in moral panic and censorship from 1980s Britain. As someone who both remembers this particular moral panic very clearly, and has an abiding interest in schlocky horror movies, i found it particularly interesting - but anyone with an interest in censorship and questions of freedom of artistic expression would also find it interesting I think.

We stayed at the house Wednesday night on our way up North. He has 12 panels and a windmill which generally does the job.

I was there when he did his monthly maintenance topping off the batteries that need more water.

What kind of batteries for that setup, big like forklift batteries, or like car batteries, or something special?

The Stocks have saved an estimated $50,000 on heat and electric bills since moving into their passive-solar home 10 years ago.
$5k a year for electricity and heat? $5,000 a year????

Something on public television about elephants.

Deep cycle marine batteries


I don't know where that $50k number comes from.
