This series of photographs explores how similar both the cities would be in appearance, the age-old yet modern London, and the comparatively new city of New York. Photographer Daniella Zalcman recently moved from New York to London, and this move prompted the series we see here.
High speed photography has brought us the goodness of things we saw everyday, but never actually noticed. Belgium-based photographer Manon Wethly created her project Flying Stuff. To strip it to the crude details, the project involves throwing liquids, and photographing the effect. Of course, that is easier said than done, but the photographing patterns the liquids form would be rewarding enough by way of satisfaction.

Whenever we see tilt-shift photography, we’re like whoa! magic!. And that is exactly the reaction we had to this video by Nathan Kaso.

Images by Canadian photographer Matt Molloy present the sky in a way that seems to have it painted through broad brushstrokes. To achieve the effect, he takes hundreds of photos of the sky and then puts them all together to create images for his “Smeared Sky” series. The number of photographs required depends on various factors like weather conditions, cloudiness, or whether the object in the picture is moving or static. Eventually, the result is a beautiful composite where the objects stand ground to sky painted by a master.
