Recently, New York City-based photographer Daniel Zvereff acquired some of the last remaining stock of Kodak Aerochrome film. 

Daniel brought the ultra-rare film to the icy arctic, transforming the sea of white into hues of magenta, purple, and blue.

Late Night at the White House

After Italian Prime Minister Andreotti departed at 12:20 a.m. the party warmed up. The Marine Band kept a crowd on the dance floor, with President and Mrs. Ford joining in to do the Hustle.

Some guests provided extra entertainment. Actor Peter Graves of Mission: Impossible fame played the clarinet and poet Rod McKuen and baseball player Johnny Bench both sang. Pearl Bailey once again ended the night on a high note, this time with a medley that included “I’ll Be Seeing You” and “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” topped off with the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The Fords didn’t leave the party until at 2:00 a.m.

I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans. The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans.

Mapping Where People Run

Inspired by a 2011 project that mapped popular running routes in a few European cities, Nathan Yau at FlowingData has done the same for 22 major cities, including 18 in the U.S. 

To make these maps, Lau simply grabbed public data from the exercise-tracking app RunKeeper. While these visualizations are not representative of all runners in a city, they do offer useful information on urban spaces. For one, we see that people really do love running near water and in parks.
