Celebrating Hannukah on Instagram

To see more photos and videos from Hannukah celebrations around the world, browse the #Hannukah, #Chanukah, #dreidel and #menorah hashtags.

Over the past eight days, Jews across the world have come together with family and friends to celebrate Hannukah, the festival of lights.

Hannukah, also spelled Chanukah, begins on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, causing the timing of the holiday to vary each year between late November and late December. The festival commemorates the Maccabee rebellion of 167 BCE, when a Jewish group regained control of their Temple in Jerusalem after it had been occupied by Syrian-Greek soldiers. They set out to burn ritual oil in the Temple’s menorah for eight days to purify the holy space, but found there was only enough oil left to burn for one day. As the story goes, however, the oil miraculously burned for the full eight days.

Now, Jews celebrating Hannukah come together at sunset to light candles in their own menorahs—one a night for eight nights in memory of the ancient miracle. Other Hannukah traditions involve spinning the dreidel—a traditional children’s game—and eating fried potato pancakes called latkes.

Tempest City Revisited
Cloud formations over San Francisco.
I’ve recently been engaged in the process of sorting through my earlier photographs and preparing higher resolution versions of them. While reexaminging the files that made up the original version of this photograph, I discovered that I’d shot an additional section on the left of this panorama that I’d neglected to use in the original upload of this photo. I figured it might be interesting to put a complete version of the picture together as I’d originally shot it.
Usually when I completely recreate a photograph like this, it’s because I find something wrong with the version I’d previously edited. That isn’t the case here, so I decided to at least approach the remake from a different process. My original version was a panorama made up of two 7-exposure tonemapped HDR files; this time I didn’t bother with HDR, opting instead to work with the RAW files natively before merging them into the panorama. The previous version of this photograph had an almost desaturated color profile; this time I wanted the colors of the sky to show through more strongly.
In the end, I like both versions of this picture. They’re different - perhaps subtly so, but at least different enough to justify their existence.

Haunting Photos Of Abandoned Buildings In Desert Ghost Towns

Far off the well-traveled freeways Southern California lies a treasure trove of modern ghost towns, abandoned when the freeway moved or the local businesses shut down. Photographer Noel Kerns has captured haunting images of these spookily beautiful buildings in desert towns like Barstow, Yermo and the Salton Sea.

He’s just published a new book, “Nightwatch: Painting With Light,” with images from abandoned buildings across the country.

These old water parks, hotels, diners and roadhouses may be forgotten and neglected, but they make for some very striking imagery photographed against the night sky.

Suitably creepy for the weekend before Halloween.

When Ayah Bdeir spoke at our New York event, she cited Theo Jansen as a huge source of inspiration for her work. Here’s a clip of the project she mentioned, Strandbeest.

Theo’s work consists of creating self-propelling beach animals that store air pressure and use it to drive them in the absence of wind.
