City-sanctioned canoe and kayak excursions along a placid, 3-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River in the San Fernando Valley’s Sepulveda Basin are expected to start in July. The three-hour journeys will be offered on weekends at a cost of $50 per person. Participants will be chaperoned by a Los Angeles Conservation Corps naturalist. The goals of the pilot program include raising awareness of the river and its history. The images in the gallery above were taken in 2010 shortly after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designated the river a “traditional navigable waterway.” George Wolfe and Joe Linton walk their vessels through the shallows as they head down the L.A. River during a recent trip after the river's waters were declared a traditional navigable waterway. Joe Linton paddles through a picturesque section of the L.A. River which is more often associated with concrete than lush greenery. Kayakers make their way down the L.A. River near Atwater Village.

Meet Charles Fréger, a French born Photographer. Like many photographers Fréger travels the World capturing it’s uniqueness and beauty. However, his work goes much deeper then just that, as he completely immerses himself into other cultures and continues to blur the line between photographer and subject. Staying true to this philosophy, Fréger is able to truly capture individuals in their own context; their own World. In 2011, Fréger completed the Wilder Mann project in which he traveled to 18 Countries in search of the mythical figure, the Wild Man. In this journey, he travels through Europe seeking out and documenting the half-human, half-beast creature that exists in various cultures. Not only is the subject matter mysteriously beautiful, the scenery and composition in this series is breathtaking. Three Thumbs up.

Members of The Denver Post’s photography staff shaved their heads in solidarity with a colleague who is undergoing chemotherapy to treat cancer. Human hair grows at a rate of about half an inch per month. To get your hair to shoulder length, about 12 inches, it would take about two years starting from scratch. Those of us with freshly sheared heads in the newsroom may or may not have thought about this, but in the end, some things are more important than hair. As photojournalists, we look to each other for inspiration on a daily basis. And that inspiration extends beyond the frame of our cameras. Our bald heads are a testament to our colleague’s strength and character. Chemo can steal her hair, but not her laugh. And the laughs have multiplied as our hair has disappeared.

The rare phenomenon sees the Moon appear substantially larger than normal as it reaches its closest point to the earth.
