Out of this world!

The Road Travel CrewComment

Recently we discovered a link to some of the Nasa Images from space.  Upon investigation there was a trove of images that are open to the public and available to view or download on their website.  

Typing in Earth in the search bar brought up 25,374 images.  When are we going to be able to get out there and start taking photos like these.  Here are a couple we pulled out to share.  If your into space or images you will never be able to capture go to the Nasa Image Site.  It's difficult to believe these are real and not a scene from Star Wars.  Space is the next frontier.

Evan Hecox: The Long Way

The Road Travel CrewComment

“The Long Way” is a short documentary portrait of artist Evan Hecox filmed in the desolate back roads and remote beauty of New Mexico and southern Colorado. We meander past desert landscapes, Taos Earthships, The Rio Grande Gorge, lonesome church ruins and Dennis Hopper's grave as Evan experiences the worlds that inhabit his work. This film was produced in conjunction with an exhibit on view at Joshua Liner Gallery February 9 to March 11.

Humans of New York

The Road Travel CrewComment

One of our favorite blogs to check out is Humans of New York.  Photographer Brandon Stanton had a goal of taking pictures of 10,000 different people on the streets of New York City.  Brandon began interviewing his subjects along the way and the project began to take off.  It's Brandon's ability to connect with his subjects in such a deep fashion and tell their story in a few sentences that made his project magic.  Humans of New York has a blog, Facebook, Instagram, a physical book and we're sure more to come.

Brandon is currently in South American taking portraits in the streets and getting people to open up about their lives.  It's worth your time to take a look.
