PDML Photo Annual 2013 – ISBN 978-0-9830664-6-0

Follow on Facebook Now it its fifth edition, PDML Photo Annual is published to showcase the work of some talented photographers and support pediatric medical research and treatment worldwide through the Global Health Initiative of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children's Hospital.

The contributors are members of the Pentax-Discuss Mail List from around the world. Their styles are as varied as their backgrounds. You'll see black & white street photography, expansive landscapes, expressive portraits, sports, macro, abstract, travel, wildlife and various combinations of the above.

Each 8" x 10" book contains about 120 pages, including the best photographs of PDML members plus the infamous PDML Quotations list, a treasure trove of wisdom and absurdity as diverse and odd as the PDML itself. (Note: Some of the more risqué quips from the web page have been omitted from the print version.)

NOTE: Be sure to search online for "Blurb Discount Codes" before ordering. Blurb has recently raised their prices considerably but they have a "sale" going on via discount code virtually all the time. (This means they've basically kept their prices the same while giving the illusion that you're getting a deal.)

E-Book Version Available

The PDML Photo Annual 2013 is available as an ebook in the open-standard .epub format that you can view on your iPad, Android tablet, Nook Color or even your computer using MobiPocketReader, FB Reader or any of the other free ebook reader apps. (To protect our photographer's copyrights somewhat, images in the e-book are limited to 800 pixels width – the width of a typical tablet screen.)

Not only does the ebook cost less than the paper version, it generates more money for the Global Health Initiative (Your entire $6.00 donation, less Pay Pal's fee.) It's a win-win. (If you're new to ebooks, please read the information on our ebook page.) Personally, I recommend FB Reader for Android. (It's also available for Windows, Mac, Blackberry and Linux platforms, though I haven't tried any of them.)

NOTE: The ebook version is compatible with most ebook readers, but not the Amazon Kindle, due to Amazon's rather ominous refusal to support the open standard .epub electronic book format. You can, however, convert any ePub book into Mobi format (which the Kindle can read) with Epub-to-Mobi or with ePub-To-Kindle-Fire Converter. These are free applications. They will only work for the recent Kindle Fire, but since this is a book of color photographs and the Kindle Fire is the only Kindle with a color screen, that should be sufficient.

"Is there more?" you ask... Of course there is! Earlier editions are still available (paperback only), so it's possible to own the complete PDML print œuvre! More astonishing photographs, more snarky quotations and more jokes about cormorants. Want a sneak peek at what's in these classic volumes? We've got samples for you to peruse in plain HTML format as well as flashy Adobe Flash format.

PDML Photo Annual 2008-2009
ISBN 978-1-61623-040-1

This is the one that started it all, upset the apple cart, triggered the avalanche and unleashed the torrent of marketing clichés at the beginning of this sentence. Fortunately the photographs contained within it are anything but clichéd; there's some great, original work here.

This edition not available as an e-book.

The page of quotations alone are worth the experience. Wow. I laughed so hard I think I threw my auto-focus out of adjustment.
