Bringing the Goods

Posted January 21, 2015, under Gosh, That's Handy!

This month’s theme has been photography, and it could easily have been subtitled: “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” We’ve shown you the Bad and the Ugly; now it’s time to show you the Good.

The fact is, thousands of photographers contribute to the multitude of stock photo libraries; millions of people are posting their stuff online — and as with any field, they run the gamut of skill, talent, and relative sanity. So you get the weird and arcane; the tired and banal. You also get the breathtaking.

If the last few Lunch Meats gave you a bad taste in your mouth, consider this a palate cleanser.

Please note that Rigney Graphics and staff have no particular affiliation with any of the artists or organizations shown here. We just admire their work. From a distance. In a totally non-creepy way.

It’s not all nature shots, either. As we mentioned before, Photoshop (as well as various camera tricks) can be skillfully applied to create striking, artistic images.

Or just impeccable timing (and a sense of humor).
