OT Sunday: Hot Shots, Drums, Books and Jazz

Hey Hot Shot is a photo competition held by the Jen Bekman Gallery in New York. Featuring the work of up and coming photographers, the competition introduces new ways of seeing to an ever widening audience.

It is certainly one place to go on the internet to see work that may surprise. shock, confuse and delight you. From tranquil to bizarre, photographers working in the ‘fine art’ field deliver a wide variety of interest.

I love to visit on beautiful Sunday mornings like this one.

This Round of Hey Hot Shot features the winner Laura Plageman.

Grab a cup-o-joe, or a diet Pepsi… heh, and spend some time with photographers who present a different look at the world than we may be used to.
