A very hard work, the actors imitating the statues have to stand in special costumes and makeup without moving for several hours. But they bring joy to everybody around them, it's incredibly beautiful and fascinating art. After the jump, you will see a selection of living statues from different parts of our planet. And here’s another entry on this subject: Living Statues Championship (30 pics)
Here is the second part of the series ‘world’s best photo retouching’. Those are the works of some of the best photo retouching companies in the world and mostly pictures for advertising. This selection is very interesting to see and even bigger than the first one, so don’t miss it!
Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season with discounts on some “hard-to-find” products. All this shopping is numerous hours of waiting in lines, sometimes the whole night in order to get in the store the first at its opening. Now let’s look at this shopping madness :)
Those sculptures are made by Austrian Artist James Corbett, he creates them by using old car parts taken from scrap yards. Then he sells his creations for thousands of pounds! It’s really an amazing work, take a look!
It’s the beginning of the end… As I often say, to each their own but I think I won’t be the only one to think that it’s sick! A Japanese gamer known as ‘Sal9000’ officially married Nene Anegasaki, one of the different female characters of the popular Japanese Nintendo DS game ‘Love Plus’. They held a small reception for friends, family and the media, and the event was livecast on Nico Nico Douga, a popular Japanese video sharing web site that allows commentors to post messages on screen.
Apparently, this event was not to be taken too seriously though, it was more like a multimedia project set by a gamer who was determined to officiate his devotion to the video game he loves so much… Well, anyway, it’s still sick to me… Don't forget to watch the video, it's the best part...
Here’s the incredible and mundane life of Sparebots made by Lenny Meriel. They are made out of “capacitors, diodes, resistors, leds, bits of wire.” Another cool post in our collection as the other one about Nails’ Life
The grand opening of the new rail station took place in Berlin, in 2006. Now it is the largest two-level station in Europe. It immediately received worldwide fame and the honorary title of the "Rail Station of the Year.” A very beautiful, modern building. The upper level of the station has six tracks and eight on the lower level. It is absolutely stunning!
This ‘monument’ represents the future for those who are irresponsible enough to drink and drive. It was erected in Moscow, Russia. The bottle is 45 feet high and is full of wrecked cars inside of it. Even though this metal piece can be found grotesque and ugly I think it’s the best way to attract people’s attention.
Incredible photo essay of a photographer Luiz Santos who made this project in order to show the situation of women in Brazil prisons and their children that live with them in prison and who are exposed to “violence, drug use and poor hygiene.”
A prisoner has arrived one day prior my first day in the prison. On visit days she is kept locked in a small pavilion as she does not have friends or relatives in town. Some prisoners are from distant villages and relatives cannot afford to travel to the prison. Some others are simply abandoned.
Peter "Pete" Burns is an English singer-songwriter, known for his work as frontman of dance band Dead or Alive, who achieved mainstream success in 1985 with their hit single "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)". He was married twenty-five years to a woman but he’s now living with his husband Michael Simpson. Now he looks more like an old woman than a man…
Aaron and Rosie never met in real life, it is not surprising, he is a photographer and lives in the USA, and she is also a photographer, but lives in the UK. They were never in the same room, but it turned out that Flickr and high technology united these two people. Every Sunday Rosie took a photograph in Britain and sent it to Aaron, who in turn took a snapshot in the U.S. and combined the two photos, as if there was no distance between them. Thousands of people closely watched their love story, the photo set was perfect, and it all ended up very great too. After nine and a half months, they met on Valentine's Day.
Everything in that airliner is about comfort and luxury. It’s impressive. I wonder what’s the cost of a 1st class ticket. Anyway, hit the jump to see all the pics and details…
We already posted pictures of the Airbus A380, but they were mostly dedicated to the exterior of the plane. This time, the post is dedicated to its interior, but check the two other posts too if you want to see more: Part 1 Part 2
This collection of funny animated gifs was sent to us by Vladimir Jila. Thank you a lot. This gif set is one of the funniest on sports topic I have ever seen so far. Check them out after the jump. It will make you laugh :)
Drag boat racer Quinton Knight crashed his boat but happily he had minor injuries – he broke his leg, in comparison to what could have happened to him in this accident. Drag racing is considered to be one of the most dangerous sports in the world as the lightweight boats are easily crashed and burst into flames. Anyways, the pictures are impressive!
I wonder how the Bolivian police managed to detain the offender, a suspect in the murder of a taxi driver, basing on such a facial composite. A woman, who lives near the place where the body had been found, drew a portrait of the alleged assassin for the police. Journalists have already called this sketch as the worst photofit in the world. You will look at it after the jump, there is also a small bonus: a few different mind-blowing photosfits.
It seems that this girl was very much in a hurry and didn’t have time to do her morning toilet and decided to catch up right in the subway in front of other astonished passengers. See for yourself, I will refrain from commenting ;)
