30 incredible long-exposure photos. It's Eye Candy on Viagra.
These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations.

A couple of guys took a program designed to shift between polar and Cartesian geometries, and hacked into into a program that will "flatten" out images. In this case, these panoramas look as if they were taken while standing in the middle of a flower. More flowers can be seen here. The same effect applied to chandeliers can be seen here.

This layout is the culmination of a work in progress for over two years. I started with the Planet Express and major characters back in February 2008. In December 2009 I expanded the building to include the sub pen, and built up a portion of the surrounding area. In late April through June 2010, I worked overtime to build an 80"x60" layout, ready in time for Brickworld 2010 on June 17th. This layout is a part of the much larger Northern Illinois Lego Train Club, and may be seen at our various shows in the Chicago area.
For the third time in the last 6 days, another line of nasty storms rolled through Chicago on Wednesday evening. I love coming home and being able to watch and capture nature's beauty from my balcony. In this clip you will see three of the tallest buildings in Chicago get struck by lightning at the same time. Willis Tower (Tallest), Trump International Hotel and Tower (2nd Tallest) and the John Hancock Building(4th tallest).

So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.

Are you sad that you can never find a candy bar made with dark chocolate that has pecan halves, gummi bears, and dried strawberries? Or how about a milk chocolate one with cayenne pepper, pine nuts and banana chips? Your search is over. Holy moley!

This is an absolutely amazing performance of some Asian acrobatic group on what looks like some type of Asia's Got Talent type show. But unfortunately, since I don't speak Oriental, I don't have any information at all about this at all. If anyone knows anything more about this, please post in the comments section.

Conceptual photography essentially is the photographer trying to convey a message or “concept”. Usually this message is conveyed through some abstract symbolism which can be interpreted by the viewer. Even though most photographers have a specific meaning they are trying to get across, usually the image can be interpreted in many different ways.
Several links to more amazing galleries at the bottom of the page, too.

I almost rejected this, but I'm glad I didn't. I think.
Anyway, I've been doing this a while now and I think I've generally made good choices, so I want you to trust me on this one. Just...watch this. Don't skip around, don't give up too soon. Just watch it.

Daniel Sieberg reports on a revolutionary technology. Brainport sends electrical impulses to the tongue, using tiny cameras as eyes, essentially creating a picture for blind people.

Forget megapixels and photoshop, these 10 paper cameras show the beauty of using only film and light. The best part? More than half can be printed out for free and constructed by hand.

Each week State of Flux will be featuring images of different locations on planet Earth, showing change over time periods ranging from centuries to days. Some of these effects are related to climate change, some are not. Some document the effects of urbanization, or the ravage of natural hazards such as fires and floods. All show our planet in a state of flux.

A sun dog is a prismatic bright spot in the sky caused by sun shining through ice crystals. The Atlas V rocket exceeded the speed of sound in this layer of ice crystals, making the shock wave visible from the ground.

The final magnification is e.214. Want some perspective? a magnification of e.12 would increase the size of a particle to the same as the earths orbit! e.21 would make a particle look the same size as the milky way and e.42 would be equal to the universe. This zoom smashes all of them all away. If you were "actually" traveling into the fractal your speed would be faster than the speed of light.
