You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes: Photographs from the International Space Station

Apparently this was a blog turned into a book, which explains the “trying-too-hard” feel to the whole thing. Grainy pictures, weird groupings and commentary, this was a fairly sophomoric effort and I’m embarrassed for the author. Huge text nestled up against nearly 2-page spread– it’s just like one of the mediocre self-published photo books I endured viewing over the years at Blurb. Despite NASA not budgeting any time for photography, he seems to have devoted a lot of headspace to calculating exactly when he needed to be at the window for just the right shot.
