#London2012 - The best photos of the Olympics. Breakthroughs in photographic technology lead to astounding detail in Olympic photos in London; Getty Images shows what innovative photo technology they're using in London to capture the magical moments


Wall Street Journal Digital Network video: The Best Photos of the London Olympics.
WSJ photo director Jack Van Antwerp speaks with George Stahl, Deputy Managing Editor of DJ Newswires about how the advancements in digital technology have allowed a scale of detail and context to converge at the London 2012 Olympics, of what used to be generic sports wire photos, that are nothing short of astounding. Van Antwerp showcases a photo of swimmer Michael Phelps shot by Gabriel Bouys of AFP/Getty Images as an example of this revolution, all the more remarkable because flash photography is prohibited at the swimming venue.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night we had! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is saying something considering what seems like the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
