I really dig these fotos by Mario Pucic. The stark minimalism, the soft colours, the framing, and the sense of space.

Buzzfeed has a very cool list of the “33 Most Beautiful Abandoned Places In The World”. Here are some of my favourites from that list. Check out their article for the locations and the rest of the list.
Today I had some time to kill while waiting for an annual NYS car inspection for the TT, so i walked over to a bookstore and saw a book of B&W photographs by Tseng Kwong Chi and was struck by their coolness. These photos were taken in the 1980s and published in a series known as East Meets West.
To me, he comes across like a futuristic asian tourist-slash-government official investigator! brilliant.
As i get ready to pick up a new Camera, i’ve been shooting a lot with my Leica D-Lux 3, a fantastic point & shoot camera i’ve had for over 3 years now. It still takes wonderful photos, and is super small. Even after picking up my other camera this weekend (hopefully) i’m still gonna hang onto the D-Lux 3 as my pocket point & shoot.
Far before IEDEI was turned into a car blog, (then subsequently shut as that) there was a series of photographs I was putting together between 2004 and 2007 for which I was using the “IEDEI” label. There were supposed to be 1000 of them (youthful overambition), however in the end only 15 or 20 were made. Photography, however, is about to make its way back to me big time in the next few weeks and months—with a purchase of a very special camera!
Here are some of those “original” IEDEI photos taken between 2004 and 2007….and displayed with various iterations of the IEDEI logo—-some cool, some not so much! Either way, they are inspiring to the future of this site and remind me of what originally started the site.
The photos here have been REMOVED due to their unoriginal effects as I was informed by the photographer (Anke Luckmann). The ORIGINAL PHOTOS have now been uploaded into a new post, thanks to Ms. Anke Luckmann for sending me her original versions of these photos:
Nigel Smuckatelli has catalogued many of his photos from the 60s and 70s on his flickr page, and in his own words: “Most of my photos were taken as a college student who volunteered as a safety official at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring in the late 60′s and early 70′s.”
He has literally thousands of photos on his page….a good percentage of them are photos he took, although mixed in there are also stock and obtained photos…..but well worth sifting through them…so make sure you follow the link above! Here are some of his original photographs i loved:
2011 was a great year in motorsports—–and I personally had an epic time at Petit Le Mans this year, following one of the most heroic wins ever at Le Mans in france. But aside from those glorious events—–DTM racing, GT racing, and endurance racing supplied thrills and spills this year.
Jake Yorath takes wonderful photos—and these were shared by him to remember motorsports in 2011
