This makes it really easy for you and your friends to create and share memories from separate cameras.

The D-series is the first free download and includes 3 unlimited use camera and 3 optional in-app purchase cameras. You can instantly connect to all your friends on Facebook and share your entire album through Facebook, Twitter, and email.

But now Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk is your answer. With a baryta (barium sulphate) coated layer underneath the ink -receiving layer, its structure is the same as a traditional fiber photographic paper base. The result: breathtaking prints with amazing color saturation, enhanced definition, extended tonal range, and amazing archival properties.

Olympus fans, get excited. Today, the camera company announced the release of the next member of their PEN family: a micro four thirds lens, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ.

The lens is remarkably versatile, performing well for portraits and wide-angle group photos alike with a 4.2x zoom ratio. The lens also has a macro mode and is able to focus form as close to 8 inches away from the subject. And the icing on the cake? The lens is still AND movie compatible. Olympus’ tried and true dust and splashproof technology was used to make this lens (the first time it has been incorporated in a Micro 4/3′s  lens!), so it is built to last.

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ will be available in mid-January for an estimated $499.99.

On a trip to Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia, photographer Margaret Morton was captivated by the cemeteries she saw scattered across the countryside. She extended her trip in order to photograph these landscapes, and the result is the breathtaking photographs in her show “Cities of the Dead: The Ancestral Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan.”

The cemeteries are unique in that they are the result of years of changes in the dominant religion of the country: Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Nestorian Christianity, Islam, and Sufism have all passed through. The tombstones and burial monuments, however, have grown to incorporate elements from their traditions without obscuring those of the past. The deceased are commemorated by a variety of different types of structures, making these landscapes particularly interesting.

“Cities of the Dead: The Ancestral Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan” continues through the end of this month at the Wolk Gallery, at M.I.T.’s School of Architecture and Planning.

MIT Building 7, Room 338, at 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA.

Some members of Flickr have been recreating major events of the past 12 months using Legos (people have too much time on their hand… or boundless creativity, depending on how you look at things!).

From the Occupy Wall Street protest to the royal wedding, the results of this extremely creative and clever endeavor are too cool to pass up. Enjoy! (It’s Christmas: it’s OK to want to feel like a kid again.)
