pontdesart 585x342 Timeless Photography

A friend and former colleague of mine recently got engaged in Paris, and this post is written in her honor. But it is also written to tell you about  photographer Jerry Spagnoli.

Spagnoli has an impressive array of images available on his website. But what sets him apart, in my mind, are his daguerreotypes. You might have seen that word before, and you’ve definitely seen daguerreotypes of Edgar Allan Poe, Abraham Lincoln, John Brown and many others.

Daguerreotypes are basically old school photography. So much so that they can make anything look like a historical image. Take a look at the image above, for instance. It’s the Pont des Arts bridge across the Seine. It’s actually a well-chosen example, since this is an art blog.

This image, and the others included here of various Paris landmarks, look like they could have been taken 100 years ago (with the exception of one dead  giveaway I’ve put in, just to get you to look at all of the images). In truth, Spagnoli took these in 2006. But the process he used is the same one that would have been used 100 years ago. Just try getting that with your iPhone’s camera.

    Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

    Comparing a game’s performance between the iPhone 4 and the Nexus One is a terrible gauge of Android’s gaming abilities. The Nexus One’s GPU is well established as being inferior to that of other high-end Android phones in 3D performance. Even the Droid 1, despite having a lower clocked CPU, has a superior PowerVR GPU, which enables far better 3D performance on the Droid 1 over the Nexus One. Between the Droid phones and the Samsung Galaxy lines, there’s plenty of capable 3D hardware for Android.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
