Even in the busiest cities where the people watching is endless, a daily commute can start to get boring after awhile. But one sneaky photographer found a way to surround himself with celebrities, animals with human bodies, and even Yoda, making his commute all the more interesting. Using a folded newspaper, he uses forced perspective to transform unsuspecting commuters into princesses, ostriches, and the president! Some of the newspaper photobombs of the anonymous photographer were featured in NY Daily News and he does this all for the entertainment of himself and for a daily pick me up for his friends when he emails them his captures of the day! Talk about perfect timing! [Read more...]

What started as a hobby after he moved to Singapore in 2008, has blossomed into a career. Danny Santos began capturing pictures of any strangers that look interesting on Orchard Road. He discovered a unique theme that got him some interesting shots. An unexpected rainstorm can change a person’s day in a snap.

Waterfalls. TLC warned us not to chase them (Rest in peace Left Eye) and now From The Lenz media shows us that there are more cool things to do with waterfalls than trying to go down them in a barrel. Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard of the San Francisco-based multi-media team had a clever idea to take long exposure shots of glow sticks traveling down a waterfall in Northern California. Aside from the light of high-intensity glow sticks by Cyalume, the landscapes were lit by road flares, head lamps, and the moon. The result was these stunning neon streams of flowing light trails that they appropriately named Neon Luminance. [Read more...]

Humans are interesting creatures. We look at the world with some of the most advanced eyes and minds, but often fail to realize that others see the world differently than we do. While this idea is often put forward when talking about the way other people experience the world, in this case I’m literally talking about vision, and insects in particular.
In the vast electromagnetic spectrum of wavelengths (extending from below the long wavelengths used for radio, to the short wavelengths of gamma radiation) we humans see only a miniscule fraction that we call visible light. This small sliver, spanning the distance between violet and red is the way we perceive the world around us with our eyes. However bees and other insects have a different view of the world. Their whole range of light is shifted further towards the violet end of the spectrum and further from the red. This means that, while they can’t perceive red, they see colors we simply cannot see – what we call ultra-violet. This also means is that bees see a world literally hidden before our eyes.
