Niagra Falls Park in Winter, a set on Flickr. A few pictures I took last January in Niagara Falls Park.
Short and funny. Just the way I like them.
Just watch it. Make sure to watch all the way to the end - it’s only 90 seconds long.
Recreating old snapshots. Very cool.
Heartbreaking and riveting.
Coin animation. Yes, that really is stop-motion animation using coins. Hang around to the end of the video to see how it’s done. Amazing patience.
Some breathtaking stuff in here.
Will you ever not be awesome? And another one over here for the same project.
Skaters on fire. Gorgeous.
I meant to post this around 9⁄11, but, well, I didn’t. So here you go, a bit late.
This is so unbelievably cool.
Sent to me by my upright, former LDS missionary of a brother, too. Maybe the Navy is rubbing off on him…
Enough with the politics, here’s a good slice-of-life article from the LA Weekly.
I’m a sucker for it.
In an article on Boston and the Tea Party, there was a reference to a shocking photograph in the 70’s during the protests about busing and integration. A little bit of googling led me to this article about the picture, The Soiling of Old Glory, and the man in it. Both articles are probably worth reading, but if you have to pick one, read the second (even though it’s written in the style of Reader’s Digest True Stories!).
Best view of the launch that you can get, a 16-mm camera at the base of the pad running at 500 fps. Stunning imagery. Hat tip to Daring Fireball for the link.
Bent Objects is fantastic, and the newest one is great. update Fixed the broken link
but there’s a good reason - the pictures generally turn out fantastic. And this is a variation I hadn’t seen before: insects covered in dew. Very neat.
In a lot of older pictures, the people have a certain look about them that places them in a specific time period. I’m not talking about their clothes – it’s a certain set of their face. This is one of the best examples of that phenomenon that I can think of. Wow. Tip o’ the hat to daringfireball.net for the link.
