Snow and Ice Festival 2005-Harbin, China
By R. Todd King

Before Sun Island Park and its Ice and Snow World became so important, Harbin's primary festival location was in Zhaolin Park Despite being overshadowed, this park continues to hold an annual festival called the "China Harbin Ice Lantern Garden Party" - and it is as unusual as its name.  This bemusing sculpture, celebrating the upcoming Chinese Year of the Rooster, greeted visitors this year.&nbsp; The flowers at the base are made of colored ice; the rooster itself is painted, and while I could not determine its composition, it did not quite look like ice or snow - but it certainly added some color to this gray winter day.

Photo Essays Featuring People and Towns in Oregon.
By Herman Krieger

Photo essays by Herman Krieger featuring people and towns in Oregon.

I take photographs to amuse myself as well as the occasional spectator. Exhibiting photographs for mutual pleasure is similar to a comedian telling jokes to an appreciative audience. But comedy is more serious than photography.

Viewers who see more in my photographs than I do probably have better vision. Those who see less than I do may be right, and I remain partially open to their criticism.

America Before Pearl Harbor - Early Kodachrome Images
By Johnny Gunn

When we think of America during the Great Depression, we often picture it in shades of grey.  It was a grim era and nearly all of the photographs we see are in black and white.  

As the 1930s came to a close, Kodak came out with Kodachrome film – the first commercially viable color film available to the general public.  In 1937 and 1938, the colors were still not stable and accurate, but by 1939 Kodachrome was producing color images of remarkable precision.

Now, not just anybody could buy this film.  It cost $5 per roll and had to be sent back to Rochester, New York for development.  By comparison, in 1938 Congress established the first minimum wage at 25 cents per hour.  $5 represented half a week’s work.  But the Farm Security Administration sent out about a dozen photographers with this new film.  Commercial photographer, Samuel Gottscho, and well-to-do amateur, Charles Cushman,  embraced this new technology, as well.
