The Wait Is Over
I've been shooting with the Canon 5D Mark III for years, and I've loved every second. Not once have I thought to myself, "Gee, I could really use an upgrade." Until today, when I saw a video announcement for the new generation 5D series.
Check out this official Canon video for the new features. I'm most excited about its 4K Video, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi, upgraded AutoFocus, and finally, the 5D has a touchscreen LCD Monitor.
Pre-Order the Canon Mark IV or Canon Mark III, both now available at B&H.
True Love in the Labyrinth of Time
Salvador Dali was a 20th century master of surrealism. His dream-like paintings are full of symbolism reminiscent of Freud's study of the subconscious. Dali himself used the term "critical paranoia," to describe the state from which he drew inspiration. (The Art Story) Walter Elias "Walt" Disney was a television showman, cartoon visionary.
In 1945, a secret collaboration between the two artistic giants began. A short film tells the tale fifty-eight years later, which Dali described as, "a magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time." Walt Disney said the film was, "a simple story, about a young girl in search of true love."
The film went unfinished due to financial difficulties related to World War II. In 1999, Roy E. Disney, Walt Disney's nephew, discovered the lost work, and completed the film with help from director Dominique Monfery.

Keep Up Your Love of Nature
Van Gogh failed as a missionary, but he painted in a way no one had seen before. "Read about art, especially art magazines," said Van Gogh in a letter to his brother, Theo Vat. "Do a lot of walking, and keep up your love of nature, for that is the right way to understand art. It teaches us to see."
From a youth of gloom, chill and sterility, Van Gogh's art became renowned undulations of paint, and waves upon waves of color stretched across a canvas plane. Full of emotion and spirit, his work demands to be seen in person because of its sheer power. Van Gogh was a simple painter, and a master ahead of his time.
