Yousuf Karsh is one of the most genius masters of 20th century photography. Looking at his works, you get the feeling that the human story is told in these amazing pictures. You can see extraordinary and unique portraits of outstanding people of the last century after the jump.
When lots of people tend to say that Avatar is nothing more than another Pocahontas, someone saw in the last Cameron’s movie lots of similarities with ‘Alien’.
Indeed, it seems those two movies have a lot in common, so let’s see in what they are the same.
Warning: those of you who haven’t seen these two blockbusters (if it’s possible…) should skip this post as it reveals some important aspects of the movies.
Human genius creates out of ordinary things some extraordinary ones. A selection of creative thoughts, ideas and finds of different designers.
Many of the photos were all taken in the days before Pearl Harbor, during the great depression. It was a more innocent time when nearly half of all Americans still lived in small towns or on farms. Mothers still made all of their children’s clothes and color film wasn’t invented until the late 1930s. A very interesting glance at the history.
Oil spill is now observed in China. A pipeline that was transporting oil in the port city of Dalian explosed. The oil workers tried to fix an underwater pump, when one of them began to drown in the oil slick. Good, his co-workers rescued him…
Now Chinese workers understand what birds and other animals felt in the Gulf of Mexico.

The photos in this post are of a restaurant in China that has sundaes that look like feces, bathtubs for tables, and toilets for seating. We’re not exactly sure what the fascination is all about but it appears that they do a brisk business. They are actually known as toilet restaurants.
Most zoos don’t allow visitors to see tigers eye to eye. But if you come to Thailand and visit a local tiger farm, you will be allowed not only to pat a tiger but also to hold this animal. Baby tigers look so sweet and innocent, and even grown tigers look tamed here. Still you can’t forget that they are superb predators.
I haven’t seen such long road trains in my country. I wonder where they are allowed to ride. Any suggestions?
All these bars are located in Nambia and have ‘cool’ names, plus, it seems that they like American TV series..
A set of pictures with different video game consoles very beautifully painted.
The fantastic street art in these photos was created by artist Robin Rhode from South Africa. It is absolutely fresh and beautiful. It does beg the question of why graffiti is illegal since it is certainly much better that what was there previously. How can something so fantastic be illegal?
The temple in these photos is unbelievable. It is made entirely out of beer bottles. That means the steps, the walls, the columns, all of it. It is absolutely beautiful but somebody has to be drinking a lot of beer.
