Love the photo of Lady Gaga too.
The Wall Street Journal has a Photo Journal showing images of the day. It lacks the thematic approach of the excellent Big Picture but, like The Guardian’s 24 hours in pictures, it contains some excellent photos (and at a higher resolution than The Guardian).
Eleanor Hardwick was brought to my attention via Chloe Aftel. She has an amazing eye, an appreciation for the slightly surreal, and a sparkle of humour. There is rightly a significant buzz about her as she has real talent (and is only 15.)
Eleanor has a large body of work on Flickr but it is worth visiting Eleanor’s website as the images are well presented.

I have been in Khartoum, Sudan for the past week. In researching Sudan before my departure I came across the story of László Almásy, the inspiration for The English Patient. In 1926 Almasy drove across the desert through Egypt and Sudan, an astonishing trip at any time yet alone in 1926. It is a fascinating life.

Good piece on Chelseas Barracks on the [always excellent] things magazine.
There has been discussion on some photo blogs, including Conscientious, about how the nature of blogs and the way that people typically view them mean that images in the archives are rarely viewed. So, I decided to go back into Conscientious archives at random and extract a few photographers whose work I like.
