This tiny church is located in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia near the city of Chiatura. The church is sitting on pillar of rock that is on a jagged cliff that is 130 ft. in the air. To climb on the top you need to take an old rusty ladder. The cliff that the church is sitting on has been eroded by weather for nearly fourteen centuries.

These are ice balls that have formed along the shore and in Lake Michigan. The creation of these ice balls was probably caused by the temperature being just below freezing, the motion of the waves, and the wind.

Making a Blade from Homemade Steel (106 pics)

Crafting requires a certain amount of dedication and persistence and the guy in the Tatara Project had more than enough of both to pull off a very tough project. He set out to make blades out of homemade steel and the result is simply outstanding. He started off by building and running a tatara-like smelter where he consolidated five pounds of steel. He then processed the bloom and compacted it forming a bar of steel. He sorted the steel using the spark test and a flywheel press to flatten some of the chunks. He then manipulated the carbon content of the steel to create different quality bars of steel. He finished up by forge-welding and folding the different steel bars to create a billet which he forged into a sunobe and then into a blade. The final step in this tedious project was polishing the blades. The impressive final product will blow your mind.

Meet Natsumi Hayashi from Tokyo who simply loves to levitate. She always brings her camera with her and creates these photos of her floating. It is not that easy to do as in order for her to look like floating and not like a jump, the facial expressions  should be controlled as well as hair or body flailing shouldn’t be noticeable. I can say, that she reached her goal.

Could you survive on 49 cents a day? If you lived in China and earned 49 cents per day, you’d have no alternative but to stretch those cents as far as they could go. Photographer Stefen Chow started a project called “The Poverty Line – China” which shows what the Chinese living below the poverty line can afford with the daily wage. One picture - one day.

Ten years ago Army Private Mitch Hunter performed a heroic act with bitter sweet results. He saved a woman’s life during a car accident by pushing a live wire off the woman. Sadly, the ending wasn’t a happy one for him. Hunter was left severely disfigured and the formerly handsome young man now lives with a severely scarred face, a prosthetic nose and leg. Hunter’s story is about to be re-written and the brave soldier just might get his happy ending after all. He has received approval for a face transplant by the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
