Amazing photographs that capture motion we can’t notice in reality. Photographer Harold Edgerton knows perfectly well how to extend our awareness of time.
The amazing photos were taken by Dr. Vaggelis Fragiadakis who is an amateur photographer, who was originally from Greece. The people in the black and white photos are mainly down on their luck. You can practically tell their life story by looking at their wrinkled faces.
These are some rare photos of your favorite Star Wars characters. What makes them rare is that some of them were taken during production of the movie, while others were taken of the characters during breaks in between takes and yet others were taken off set. They are indeed rare Star Wars photos.

Remember the post of yesterday about Jenny, a girl who quitted her job in a creative, original and daring way?
Well, as some of you mentioned it in the comments, it was nothing but another Internet hoax.
As entertaining as it was, nothing was true, the girl is just a Californian actress (at least, that's what she says..) named Elyse Porterfield.
I’ll let you discover more pics of her and her explanations in the following…
Here’s how this young girl quit her job sending these pictures to all her co-workers an her boss, of course. Bravo Jenny!
There is no doubt that retouching a photo of a celebrity will make them much more attractive. As the photos in this post show, many celebrities are not as perfect as we would like to believe and Photoshop can defiantly improve their looks.
The photos in this post are indeed some very rare photos of celebrities. Many of them were taken before they were well known. But even in the early days it is easy to see how most of them were destined for stardom.
These are the yearbook photos of some very famous US politicians. Some look much the same as they do today, others are not even recognizable. In this case there is no distinction of party lines.
Some people like to have fun by making bizarre faces on the camera. This collection is awesome. Just don’t get scared.
These retro photos of Paris are beautiful and amazing. They were taken in the beginning of the 20th century. They were black and white at first. But color was added to them later on.
These are spiritual photographs taken by William Hope (1863-1933). I wonder if they are for real. What if he simply used the very first version of Photoshop?
If you can’t translate something from one language into another one, better use the original phrase. Otherwise you will look hilarious just like these Asians who are wearing Engrish t-shirts.
Celebrities also have bad days. But paparazzi are always there hunting for famous people even on such days. Here is a collection of the most unflattering pictures of celebs.
Different photographs of weapon shots. All these battles and military trainings look pretty wild.

Being 1472 feet (448 metres) tall, this was the tallest building in the world for over 40 years since its completion in 1931. Only in 1972 when the North Tower of the World Trade Center was built, the Empire State Building was deposed as the world’s highest skyscraper.
Los Angeles is a legendary American city. This is the capital of celebrities, the city which leaves almost nobody indifferent. For some people this place is a symbol of peaceful life. For others it is a huge metropolis that is not really suitable for a normal life. Anyways, let’s just look at spectacular photos of Los Angeles from a bird’s eye view. These pictures are amazing!
This unusual collection of photos was created by Texas photographer Tom Hussey for “Reflections” campaign ran by one pharmaceutical company.

We will see today the aging timeline of popular American Actress and (considered by many as) one of the most beautiful women in the world: Angelina Jolie.
As far as I’m concerned, I wouldn’t say she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, but I’ve got to admit, she’s always been kinda hot.
An interesting experiment took place in a Romanian prison for women. The inmates received a total of 6 Canon PowerShot cameras and were taught how to use them. During the first two months, 14.000 photos were taken!
This unique experiment led to the superb photos you can enjoy through this post.
British Defense Secretary Liam Fox called Afghanistan “a broken 13th-century country” when he visited it. His words drew fire on him. This happened not because he was wrong, but because he was way too blunt. Actually, Liam Fox wasn’t the first person to call Afghanistan a medieval country. There were people who labeled local inhabitants “barbarians with a 1200 A.D. mentality”. Many people really think that Afghanistan is an ungovernable land with chaos that would never make it out of the Middle Ages.
Still there were times when Afghanistan was a nice country where women could pursue careers in medicine, where people could go to the movies and work on the factories. This country used to produce many goods. It had a government that was able to undertake national infrastructure projects. People believed they had a future, but all their hopes were destroyed by 30 years of war.
The Google Earth satellite photos in this post are quite unusual. In the cities, the buildings look like they are leaning and in the country there is everything from crop circles to human figures. There are even people who put the strangest things on their roofs. They are unusual photos to say the least.
