Introducing Fresh Eye Friday

Welcome to CoLab’s newest photo blog series: Fresh Eye Friday.

Fresh Eye Friday is about how we see and understand cities, cultures, and the environment. It’s about how we perceive the world around us.

Every Friday, a guest photographer will publish a photo or two that documents someplace that made her stop and suddenly feel as though she were seeing something for the first time.

Have you ever settled your eyes on a scene that woke you up to a reality you’d never quite grasped before? Or have you done a double take on a street corner you passed a million times, only now seeing an incredible detail you’ve overlooked before?

A Fresh Eye Friday photo could be of something you see all the time, but have suddenly come to notice. Or perhaps it’s a scene you’ve never seen before that makes you grasp the world anew – something that sharpens your whole sense of a place or culture.

Fresh Eye Friday: River Life

What does this image say to you? Photographer Linda Ciesielski will tell the story behind this photograph tomorrow, in the first installment of Fresh Eye Friday.

Share your photos and observations on Fresh Eye Friday:  We are looking for 1-2 photos and a short caption. Photos can include a built form, people, or an everyday scene. Include a short vignette describing where the photo was taken and why you took it. Offer some context. Posts should be no more than 300 words. Send submissions to Linda Ciesielski at

Selections are based on submissions received, and an individual will be featured no more than twice.
