Solar Eclipse, More from CES, D&G's "Uomini": Daily Photo Feed 1/7

  • French photographer Thierry Legault took the above photo which shows both the moon and the International Space Station eclipsing the sun earlier this week. He only had 0.86 seconds to capture the image. He tells NPR how he did it:

    I used one telescope (one is already difficult to carry by airplane with the luggage limitations!). I used a reflex camera in continuous shooting. The timing and placing (my position on the ground must be accurate at better than two to three kilometers along the passage line) was calculated with a special site and checked with a GPS. This needs a lot of preparation in advance, and also a lot of training with the equipment.

    You can click to enlarge the photo since I know that space station is pretty darn small.

  • Photographer Mariano Vivanco has collected many of his sexy images for Dolce & Gabbana into a book called "Uomini." Ford Models Blog has a sneak peek:

    Any time Dolce & Gabbana puts out a hardcover book let alone one photographed by Mariano Vivanco you had better stand at attention, straighten your hair, and promptly strip down to your skivvies.

    Some of the pictures are of nude men, so it's possibly NSFW.

  • A report from Gadgetwise on a new OLED point-and-shoot from Sony which was unveiled at CES this week. "By incorporating a super-bright, ultradetailed OLED (for organic light-emitting diode) touch screen in one of the company's top-of-the-line Cyber-shot cameras, Sony comes to this category a bit late, following the lead of Nikon and a couple of other digital imaging manufacturers."

  • Gawker has nifty Pic of the Night seen below. They write: "For this picture of spectators watching the Four Hill ski jumping tournament in Austria, AP photographer Kerstin Joensson exposed the film for a 10th of a second and rotated the camera during the exposure."
