Oil Leak. Two Months Later… (37 pics)

Posted in Pictures 23 Jun 2010   / 8540 views

More than 60 days have passed since the explosion of the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

And the oil and natural gas continue to pour into the ocean, about 60,000 barrels a day. It is better than some time ago – 100,000 barrels…

The governor of Louisiana stated that the damage done goes from $40 to $100 billion…

Here’s a set of the most recent photos from the Gulf.

Creating Animals from Earth’s Continents and Isles (12 pics + flash)

Posted in Pictures 23 Jun 2010   / 6886 views

This project named ‘Piece together for peace’ is simply brilliant.
It’s in fact a Chinese calendar where each month is represented by an animal created by using the continents and isles of the Earth. As you may have already guessed, those are the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.
And as a bonus, there’s also a flash animation at the end that recaptures the 12 pictures and shows how the continents and isles are taken and moved to form the animals.
It’s very well done, so don’t miss it!

Watch what eyes can look like when you modify them with Photoshop.

Some are maybe just colored lenses and make-up, I don’t know…

Anyway, it’s truly beautiful.

Photo a Day until He Died (43 pics)

Posted in Pictures 22 Jun 2010   / 14353 views

The Polaroid photo project had began with a series of photos and its author Jamie Livingston noticed that he had been doing several pictures per day. So he decided to keep a photographic diary taking a single picture a day with his Polaroid camera.

He did it during 18 years (1979 – 1997) until the day he died from cancer. There are more than six thousand Polaroids in his collection, although some of them are missing.

Jamie worked as a cinematographer and editor of music videos for MTV, as well as working on advertisements with Nike, he was also a member of Chris Wangro's circus troupe The Janus Circus.

 

After his death, his collection was organized into an exhibit called "JAMIE LIVINGSTON. PHOTO OF THE DAY: 1979-1997".

A Chinese boy born one year ago in Shanghai has a rare transverse facial cleft - his skull has a large horizontal section missing. It looks really creepy but the worst thing is that if the corrective surgery is done on him, it may kill him…

Poor little kid :(

Cooper the cat has been taking pictures over a year periodically and there’re plenty of them.

You’re maybe asking yourself how a cat can take pictures, well it’s quite simple with a cat-cam, a small camera that Cooper wears on his neck once a week and that snaps a new photo every two minutes.

Now let’s see what life is about through the eyes of Cooper the cat + some pictures of the cat itself:

All of these politicians and some athletes are making hand gestures, which can be interpreted as if they were saying: “Mine is bigger,” or not… in some cases ;) So without knowing the context, this kinda looks funny.

The human landscapes of rice cultivation in terraces that follow the natural contours of the escarpments like contour plowing are just amazing. It shows that people’s work together with nature can give some very beautiful results.

Such terraces are a classical feature of the island of Bali, the Banaue Rice Terraces in Benguet, Philippines, and the rice terraced mountains in China.
