We have heard of being in the belly of the whale, but have you ever thought about being in the belly of a huge snake? Javier Senosiain has, and created this house. He calls it Quetzalcoatl Nest, which is the name of an Aztec snake/bird god of knowledge and learning. The snake house is built on land that includes caved in caves, and larger preserved caves. When creating this piece of architecture Javier wasn’t allowed to touch the flora or fauna so the snake twists and turns with the lay of the land.

This task is possible, and you can take a look at how Nurminen Logistics Company has managed to transport oversized cargo to a distance of about one kilometer, which took it two months of preparations and one hour to perform the assignment.

This is some incredible street art by an artist who goes by the moniker of JR. He is the 2011 winner of the TED Prize, which is an inspirational award for artists who have one wish to change the world. JR won $100,000 for his effort. His works are all around the world and talk about “commitment, freedom, identity and limit.”

His biggest illegal exhibition work ever was made in eight Palestinian and Israeli cities where JR posted huge portraits of Israelis and Palestinians face to face, he posted them on the both sides of the Separation wall as well. Which was not only hard to access but according to the experts, it was impossible. Nevertheless, JR did it. His artwork has a far-reaching impact than just a beautiful street art.

Another set of pictures of celebrities being “friends and random guests” at parties of this family. I think it’s a funny idea and a good exercise to sharpen Photoshop skills.

In some of the pictures, it is clearly seen that they were photoshopped, others could easily pass for real photographs.

Take a look ate the first part of this set:

"Freak" Postcards (74 pics)

When Kodak introduced its first Kodak Brownie cameras making the photography accessible to the general public, skilled professionals weren’t long to wait. And since 1907 postcards were allowed to have a "divided back", it left the front side of the postcard open for image. This opportunity was widely used by people with big imagination. Thus began the golden age of postcards, which lasted until 1915, and more importantly the golden age of Tall-Tale or "freak" postcards.

The process of creating a tall-tale postcard was simple: a photographer took two snaps, the one of a background landscape and another one was a close-up of an object.  He then carefully cut out the second snap and superimposed it onto the first. Then he re-shot the brand new combination and it was done.

 

Here's an exmaple of a creation of a tall-tale postcard.
