21st Century Love Story! (26 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       26 Nov 2009       34378
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.

Cold War on the Court
The U.S. team came to the final having won every game in Olympic play for the past 36 years.
But the Soviet Union’s team surprised the Americans with an aggressive offense in the 1972 Munich Games.
With six seconds left, the USSR was clinging to a one-point lead when American Doug Collins was deliberately fouled.
Collins sank both of his free throws, giving the US. its first lead, 50-49, with three seconds left.
The Soviets failed to score, time ran out and the Americans erupted in celebration.
But Soviet coach Vladimir Kondrashkin claimed he had called a time-out that was ignored, and Britain’s R. Williams Jones, the Secretary-General of the International Amateur Basketball Federation, ordered the clock set back by three seconds.
When play resumed, Soviet star Sasha Belov pushed past two U.S. defenders to sink the winning basket...

We often see photos of animals taken in the wild or in zoos but it’s not often that you can see them on white backgrounds!
A Belgian team named Life On White and led by Eric Isselée has taken “nearly 10,000 images of around 480 different animal species in an attempt to create the largest collection of animals photographed in front of a white background by a single photographer.”
You can purchase those pics online; parts of the benefits go to organisations that deal with the protection of animals.
