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.

As they say, the simplest ideas are the best and this one from George Lee, named ‘Tie Tea’, was about time!
The photos in this post are of sculptures that were made entirely of newspapers and books. The work is by creative artist Nick Georgiou who is from Queens, NY. It is amazing what can be done with a little inspiration and a lot of perspiration.
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.

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 :(
One guy sent his picture and asked someone who has Photoshop skills to remove red eyes from his photos… Well, you all know what happened next.
That’s why you should never ever ask help on a forum ;)
A designer from Studio Re-Creation, Nikola Nikolov made out of his Lada Samara Diva a 90 kg transformer ready for action. But I am not sure it can transform back into a car…
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:
The Dads in these photos are away from home and apparently on vacation. Well, Dads everywhere need a little R & R every now and again. Now you get a little insight into what Dads like to do when they are away from home for a little me time ;))
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.
This old comic about Mickey Mouse and his friend Goofy is talking about them selling Peppo in Africa. Peppo is nothing less than a crank or speed, other words an amphetamine that you can only get in a pharmacy on prescription.

Here is another set of great ads. But this time they are not humorous but shocking.
I think the shock factor is the best to attract people’s attention, at least it worked for me :)

You should really take a look, it will certainly do you good to laugh ;)
These photos are of some very funny and embarrassing situations. The new groom is often a little frisky at these times and usually the new bride is only too willing to cooperate which makes for some hilarious scenes. As can be seen from the photos, a good time was had by all.
In an attempt not to offend today’s youth, a famous photo of Winston Churchill has been airbrushed to get rid of his cigar.
Well, this is nothing less than a useless modern censorship, but is that it? Do we have to fear more of this censorship?
There are some amazing digital photos. With the technology that is available today they are so detailed even the ones that are Photoshopped appear to be real. They were taken by different photographers for the 2010 Digital Photographer of the Year Contest.
