A cool shot of an epic Christmas tree destined for the Capitol in Washington D.C., being hauled across the country from Washington state by a gleaming 2014 model Mack Pinnacle:  http://www.overdriveonline.com/photo-mack-pinnacle-loaded-with-the-capitol-christmas-tree/

Chicago Tribune photojournalist Alex Garcia discusses the pros and cons of professional photographers using an image editing program like Instagram for their work:  http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/assignment-chicago/2013/11/sitting-on-the-fence-with-instagram.html

Kenneth Jarecke offers a much less subtle critique here:  http://kennethjarecke.typepad.com/mostly_true/2012/10/instagram-the-devil-and-you.html



Photojournalist Pete Muller has shot a powerful series of images in Africa, focusing much of his efforts on the war-ravaged Eastern Congo: http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/11/05/a-congolese-rebellion-routed-a-photographers-work-continues/



A surreal and somewhat amusing project from American photographer Nina Goldstein, showing her interpretation of what Disney princesses' lives might be like, following the 'happily ever after' endings of their respective fairy-tale stories: http://www.demilked.com/fallen-princesses-dina-goldstein/

The images are visually striking, ethereal and quite jarring, mostly because you're so used to seeing these characters in their sickly-sweet pretend Disney worlds. The photo of Rapunzel in particular is one that made me stop in my tracks. The picture shows her sitting on the side of a bed in hospital, bald, with her golden locks in a plait trailing from the bed and onto the floor, accompanied by an IV drip, implying she is having chemotherapy.
