I look at these picture, and now I’m thoroughly convinced that dogs are humans. Portraits by Sebastian Magnani have dogs dressed as humans, and we’re assuming there are a few post-production touches as well, even so look how very human they appear! The project is named Underdogs, and Sebastian first started working on it in August 2009, and now includes two sets. Prints available on Society6.
Swedish photographer Emil Nystrom has an interesting series where his lovely baby daughter can be seen embarking on adventures. She plays roles like being the Fruit Ninja, a car mechanic, a superhero, or someone just hanging out. Of course, the images went into post production as the child wasn’t old enough to stand, and for several of them her mother held her up during the photoshoot. Additional elements were removed later with photoshop to create the series, though we like to pretend that they were added later so the identity of our future superhero would remain a secret.
Everything about the Aurora Borealis is magical, and this image from Hotspot Media shows it for the magical scene that it is.
Photographer Jon Smith makes use of high speed photography to capture what has never been seen, in this case, quite literally so. Smith employs standard incandescent light bulbs, which he fills with various objects and liquids. These bulbs are then made to explode, and the resultant carefully captured by means of high speed photographs to achieve these photographs.
What’s interesting about beta carotene farms? Apparently, their aerial view. These almost abstract painting-like views happen to be photographs of Beta Carotene captured by Australian photographer Steve Back. Beta Carotene is produced by naturally occurring algae in water, and those red and pink hues are often used in food coloring. The photographs are from the Hutt Lagoon, the world’s largest beta carotene farm. You can have a good look at the farm for yourself using Google Maps or Earth.
Photographer Yu Yamauchi spent 600 days living in a hut near the summit of Mount Fuji, and got up early every day to take a photograph of the rising sun from the top of the mountain! The photographs as you would expect, are lovely. In fact, they are better than lovely, it’s almost a different world. The set is named Dawn and shows sunrises above the clouds from the land of the rising sun. Remarkably, the photographs vary greatly and present magnificent views that are absolutely enjoyable.
Photographs by Tabitha Soren show people running away in abject terror, often looking back to see if they’re being followed. What is missing from these photographs, is the danger that makes them run, and what they are fleeing from. So, you could just use your imagination and put any terrifying, dangerous object of your choice here. We, being consummate optimists like to think that these people need to poop real bad and are trying to find a place away from the camera lens.
SS Ayrfield is a ship that is more than a century old, and as such has plenty of stories to tell. It was originally called the SS Corrimal when built in the UK in 1911. It saw a military career in WWII when the Australian government used it to carry American troops and supplies. It was sold to the Miller Steamship Company in 1951 and got named the Ayrfield. For the next 20 years, it served as a collier between New Castle and Sydney, eventually being decommissioned in 1972, and sent to Homebush Bay, which at that time was a ship breaking area.
