“The time has come," the walrus said, "to talk of many things: Of shoes and ships - and sealing wax - of cabbages and kings.”

A few days ago we put out a request asking for names of some photographers to do a potential @whalebonemagazine project with, and now thanks to many of you our right thumb has permanent severe arthritis. Thanks a lot, you jerks. Whatever, it was worth it. The Easter Eggs we’ve uncovered and good people behind them will be along shortly. People like @d_ledezma. Nice recommendations. Thank you

In 1960, Sports Illustrated gave a 17-year-old kid his first photography assignment—the same year he graduated from East Orange High School in New Jersey. Two years later, that kid, Walter Iooss, shot his first cover for Sports Illustrated. Not too bad for someone who shot his first roll of film at the age of 16, with a camera his father had bought for him. Click forward a few hundred thousand rolls of film, couple hundred Sports Illustrated covers, and several decades later, and you have Walter Iooss walking above a treasure chest of some of the most iconic moments captured in sports and cultural history. Here is one @walteriooss snapped for us of Bill Murray playing golf with @kellyslater in Florida a few weeks back. Pick up the new Golf Issue of @whalebonemagazine to see more from Don Iooss

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to join me is more than welcome.

Finally, someone is going to reward you for the knowledge you hold of who actually takes good photos these days. This has been a long enough wait and we understand if you’re a little more than annoyed at us on why this took so long to put together. Here’s the thing, you tell us one account or photographer or friend that happens to have an eye that you think we’d appreciate and we’ll send three of you a bunch of good things from @whalebonemagazine. We’re looking at a few upcoming projects and figure you guys likely spend most of your time on here and have been thinking “DAMMIT, what the hell can I do with this knowledge”. Mystery solved. Thank you for your time
