Who knows how many wonderful photographs are taken every minute, hour, day, week or month? In substitution for discontinued “Weekend Columns“, I’m starting a new column “Photos taken in…“. I have in mind to pick out a small fraction of photos worth to be seen (from my personal point of view, of course). Let’s start from January.

These photos were taken on January 28, 2011.

What can embarrass a nudist? The answer may be found in “Our Readers Say” column of Popular Science magazine from February, 1938 (page 6).

… a friend of mine …. spent his week-ends giving the mosquitoes a break at a nudist camp, but was greatly embarrassed (if such a thing is possible for a nudist) by the lack of pockets. No mere cigarette holder would have done him any good, for he was a pipe smoker and insisted on having on his person a large supply of tobacco, spare pipes, pipe cleaners, and matches. It was impossible for him to carry around all his accessories with his bare hands. He finally got around the difficulty by getting himself one of these short aprons that carpenters use, with the front full of pockets.

Here’s one more true story from Jet, the issue from 1961 (see the previous one here). It is from the criminal column (page 48).

Bandits Flee; Leave 7 Nude Women Behind
It wasn’t a nudist convention, but seven nude women and two naked men were found by police in a Brooklyn corset shop when the ofiicers answered a phone call reporting a holdup. The nude nine explained that the bandits forced them in to a back room and made them undress, then placed their clothes in front of the lighted shop where they would be difficult to retrieve without being seen from the street. The holdup men made off with $1,000 from the purses of the women and pockets of the two husbands who had accompanied their wives to the “corsetorium.”

It wasn’t a nudist convention. Can you imagine that?

I was looking for a quote about Beauty and I liked this one.

The Navajo regard the universe as supremely beautiful and intrinsically harmonious. They view humanity as part of nature and in no way separated from nature. Beauty to the Navajo is not an abstract concept, not something perceived as external or as something to be searched for by an appreciative viewer. They believe beauty to be an intrinsic quality of Being, experienced by living a good life and especially by creating beauty continually. (Weaver of worlds: from Navajo apprenticeship to sacred geometry and dreams : a woman’s journey in tapestry by David Jongeward)

Today’s weekend column is devoted to art photography by Giulia Ciappa from Florence.

Today I’m posting links to the photos taken by Austrian photographer Alfred Georg Weissenegger. These images may be seen in his gallery on deviantART. If I was going to write something profound here, that could be: Art needs no comment.
