Terraced in Turkey

Pamukkale-(2)

This is the Pammukkale in Turkey. These naturally terraced pools were apparently created when earthquake activity thousands of years ago brought water rich in calcium carbonate to the surface, causing it to accumulate in layers and layers over time to create these magnificent terraced pools.

UFO Clouds

Lenticular Clouds

Russian photographer Denis Budkov captures these naturally occurring Lenticular Clouds hovering over the Kamchatka Peninsular in Russia. “These clouds are very special as they do not move, they stay in one place and it’s only their shape that changes,” the 33-year-old told the Daily Mail. “There needs to be at least two factors for these clouds to appear–a very strong wind and a very high object, so Klyuchevskaya Sopka is a perfect place to find lenticular clouds,” he added, referring to the highest mountain in the Kamchatka Peninsula.

Daniella (b. 1986) is an award-winning photojournalist whose work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the New York Daily News, Sports Illustrated, and Vanity Fair. Her photographs have appeared in exhibits throughout New York City and are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She graduated from Columbia University in 2009 with a degree in architecture.

Her kickstarter project is seeking funding for a new photography book that includes stunning pictures that overlay cityscapes- London and New York. She has created all of these amazing photographs with just her iphone 4S and the help of some smart photo editing apps. Her words: When I moved from New York City to London late last year, I decided to create a series of double exposures. These images are a love letter to two beautiful cities — a personal map of their streets and their skylines.

Alternative Limbs

Kiera wearing floral leg

The Alternative Limb Project offers a personal and friendly bespoke service, which provides unique prosthetics  to blend in with the body or stand out as a unique piece of art, reflecting the wearer’s imagination, personality and interests.  It’s interesting how something that is looked at as a disability aid has been reinvented to something representing ‘Superhuman’ status. Really innovative and smart piece of work- bodes well for the future of prosthetics.
