Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for a while? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else…. ‘Just the two of us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.”
I think his images are pretty amazing! One thing Pichler discovered: “In the beginning I thought I would get to know a lot of nerds, but I discovered that most of these people have settled lives. They have families and they are integrated into social life…” What do you guys think?
If you’re a lady, then you’ve been in this situation before. Random men who, for some reason, feel the special need to address you in a specifically sexual way. Some women appreciate the attention, but for me, personally, I could do without the daily bombardments when I’m going through the simple motions of walking down the street. My method of dealing with street hounds is usually to either ignore them or to half-heartedly smile/scowl and walk more quickly.
Photographer Hannah Price, on the other hand, has a different approach. She decided to start a photo essay on these men who approach her with their seductive words. None of the men in these photos seem too keen about being the subject at the other end of her lens, but perhaps it might be a good reminder to them that women on a daily basis often feel like subjects and less like actual human beings with the constant barrage of inquiries of the sexual nature.
We women are, after all, people and not just something to be objectified.
A team of researchers have recently developed some straight-up wizardry software that extracts 3-D editable objects from a simple 2-D image.
The researchers credit the combination of “the cognitive abilities of humans with the computational accuracy of the machine”. I really hope this software becomes available to the masses. Imagine how quickly you and your mouse could create editable 3-D models.
Is it me or does this sound like the beginning of a movie plot? Either way… Prepare Yourself.
Photographer Andy Prokh of St. Petersburg, Russia, takes some really great photos. But the ones that are gaining him traction right now are those of his four year old daughter Catherine, along with his British shorthaired tomcat Lilu. When Lilu decides to go along with the pictures, magic happens. These are only just a few of the images that Prokh has shot. You can check out more of this series here.

See this? That’s photographer Joe McNally’s feet on top of the tallest building in the world in Dubai. Just to show you, here’s a picture of the building:
Yeah, he tweeted that picture from 820 meters in the air. Just, you know, like it was no big deal.
“Cerealism is a photo series project by Arizona-based artist Ernie Button that looks at breakfast cereal in a whole new way.”
This is so impressive on so many different levels. The best thing I can do with cereal is pick out all the marshmallows in Lucky Charms or spell swear words in my Alphabits.
I will say, the coffee shop I like to visit actually used to make Fruity Pebbles lattes, where they’d soak fruity pebbles in milk, strain, steam the leftover milk and add espresso to it and it was AWESOME.
Oh, Barbie and Ken. What’s going on? Your lives are out of control.
On a side note, I feel like I’ve seen a series similar to this in the past, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen this wonderfully disturbing photo set
from Japan yet. Some of these photos are definitely reenacting fairy tale scenes, like this version of Cinderella, but then I see this one [sNSFW] and my brain is all full of confused.
[Update] According to the comments on Reddit, the photographer is Mariel Clayton, who may not actually be Japanese but gets inspiration from Japanese miniatures.
