++Weekend Edition: FUNNY & INTERESTING PICTURES / PART 2 ++

Weekend Edition:

Funny pictures,
Interesting pictures,
Entertaining pictures.
Let's just have fun this
weekend.... pictures.




Alright, it's time for the  weekend edition.  Time to find some photos that are just fun, interesting, just time to relax and enjoy life.  We get serious through the week, now I have found some fun things we can just enjoy.  So, a mix of both funny photos, and some really interesting photos for entertainment only.  ENJOY:


Won't the middle door need to be a bigger door than that?



You can get pretty creative when working with multiple exposures—layering images on top of other images to get some pretty unique and interesting shots. Lately there has been increasing interest in double exposure portraits, such as this one taken by photographer Austin Greene:


“No layering or blending of images or anything like that was done in Photoshop or any other editing software. The way it works is the first image is a silhouette, with your subject being mostly or entirely underexposed, then your second image fills those underexposed areas. The technique has been around since film days and is a ton of fun.” — Greene

Many modern DSLRs come equipped with a multiple exposure function that allows photographers to make these kinds of portraits right in camera. Greene took this shot with a Canon 6D. Toy cameras such as the Lomography Holga are also a popular way to create double exposures.

Photography has always allowed us to document momentous events in history. In this photo, pioneering primatologist Jane Goodall greets a young chimpanzee named Flint in Tanzania’s Gombe Stream Game Reserve. Photographed by Hugo van Lawick, the photo series titled “New Discoveries Among Africa’s Chimpanzees” ran in the December 1965 issue of National Geographic:

After receiving her first research grant from National Geographic in 1961, Goodall dedicated 50 years of her life to the research and documentation of the social interactions of chimpanzees. She is said to be the only human who has been accepted into chimpanzee society. The image shows Goodall presenting the back of her hand with fingers pulled inwards, demonstrating a harmless greeting to the onlooking protective mother situated out of frame.

Throughout photography’s history, mirrors have often been used to create spooky or magical effects. In the age of Photoshop, it can be difficult to tell if computers have been used to trick the viewer, or if the image was simply the work of a clever photographer. Today’s photo is just such an image. Photographer Laura Williams (who is also the model in the photo) titled it “Invisible” and, whether the image has been Photoshopped or not, it certainly begs the viewer to look closer and figure out what’s going on:

What do you think? How did Laura Williams create this evocative image?

Showered in a powerful array of fiery orange sky and dramatic purple clouds, Washington, D.C.’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall comes off as brazenly proud in this photo–a stark contrast to its often dark and somber tone. The wall was designed by American architect Maya Lin in the 1980s and, from above, looks like a giant sobering scar carved into the grass. From ground-level, it is much quieter, and poignantly reflective:

Fitting for this weekend:
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial leading and the Washington Monument at sunrise. (Via Imgur. Click for larger size.)
The photo is a dazzling example of composition–the memorial feels endlessly reaching toward the ultimate goal, the Washington Monument, perfectly centered in the bottom third of the frame. The colors reflect sharply against the wall’s dark stone. The use of HDR is obvious but effective, and it’s typical of photographer Angela B. Pan‘s stark and often patriotic American style.
