New York: when the city sleeps.

The Wall Street Journal sent several photographers out overnight to shoot New York City during the hours when most of its citizens are sleeping.

Here are photos of those awake when most of the city is not.

What happens when you project ‘The Lorax’ onto falling snow

These Snowstorm of 2013 photos aren’t your typical snapshots of vehicles buried in snow or hipsters building anatomically correct snowmen. With a little patience, trial and error, photographer Brian Maffitt produced magnificent images that look like something out of a SF movie, a DNA lab or like going through a car wash inside of a rave. To capture his unique “Projector Snow” images, which you can see here, he pointed an old projector out a bedroom window as the mighty snowstorm known as Nemo dumped 15 inches of powder on Maffitt’s hometown of Chestnut Ridge, New York, over the weekend, last week. Using an Apple TV, the photog pulled up the first kids’ movie he could find on Netflix, ‘The Lorax’ (should’ve been ‘Finding Nemo’, obviously) and began beaming the colorful video into the night. The result is absolutely beautiful: colorful, digital confetti. 🙂

“Stiri proaspete” = stiri de acum 4 zile.

“Bun-gasit, iata cele mai proaspete stiri ale zilei: un pasager a fost legat de scaun intr-un avion care circula pe ruta Irlanda-New York”
Asta mi-a spus azi – printre altele – doamna care citeste prompterul la Digi 24.
Toate ar fi bune si frumoase… daca stirea asta nu ar fi veche de patru zile.
In industria stirilor, sa “descoperi” o chestie la patru zile dupa ce s-a intamplat si s-o mai si prezinti drept “proaspata” e ca si cum ai lua un salam vechi de patru ani si l-ai servi invitatilor tai la cina, pentru ca, nu-i asa, oricum sint prea prosti ca sa-si dea seama, deci de ce te-ai mai obosi sa mergi la magazinul din colt sa cumperi altceva? 😀
