Many of these intriguing photographs are also accompanied by a description of the person and the crime(s) they have committed. For example, the image above of Mr. William Stanley Moore was taken May 1st, 1925. The caption describes him as: an opium dealer operating with large quantities of faked opium and cocaine. Also a wharf labourer and associates with water front thieves and drug traders. The images themselves are of excellent quality, beautifully composed and in many cases, quite artistic. 2. Albert Stewart Warnkin is listed in the NSW Police Gazette of 10 November 1920, as charged with attempting to carnally know a girl eight years old.

On May 6, the moon approached within 357,000 km (222,000 mi) of Earth, in what is scientifically known as a perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system (perigee: closest point of an elliptical orbit; syzygy: straight line made of three bodies in a gravitational system). Photographers across the globe set out to capture the event, and collected here are 24 of the most super images of this year's supermoon.

Cute Newborn Baby Photography By Carrie Sandoval - Nightly (Build 20120322031220) Capturing the cuteness of a newborn baby is something every parent craves. I'm wondering how the world renowned photographer Carrie Sandoval achieve such beautiful shots. Carrie Sandoval has been photographing babies for more than seven years, and her photos are famous for soft texture, creamy newborn skin that has been likened more closely to fine art than photography, and captured with magical attraction to organic form, beautiful light and simplicity. For more information ping to carrie's portfolio.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. Anne Bradstreet In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. Albert Camus Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me. Anne Morrow Lindbergh Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into a vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay-- Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.

In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago. Every mile is two in winter. One kind word can warm three winter months. When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds.

Rainbow Thread Art (8 pics) Though we can appreciate Gabriel Dawe's beautiful thread art by just looking at these pictures, we're certain that these photos will never quite do them justice. In fact, we can imagine ourselves walking around these rainbow prisms and just getting lost. I asked Dawe to tell us what he hoped others got out of his artwork including what they represent. "Conceptually, these works are about the human need for shelter," he tells us. "Fashion and architecture have many functions, but one thing they both share is that they protect us from the elements. I'm taking the main material that clothing is made out of—thread—to make an architectural structure. "Ultimately, what I want to give the viewers is an experience with light and color.

"What is very satisfying is that I hear all the time that people go back to see them and stay for half hour, experiencing the piece. Read the rest of our interview with Dawe below. 30 Amazing Photo Manipulation of Fire and Flames - Aurora. Truly, human civilization cannot be built up without the fire. Since the control of the fire by early humans, it has been with us for around 125,000 years, witnessing the rise and the fall of human civilizations. Unlike calm water with inner beauty, bright fire has garnered lots of attention, thus inspired many great human artists to create art about it, the art of fire.

Creative Anti-Smoking Advertisements. Steve McGhee on the Behance Network - Aurora. Light Pillar – Nature’s Beautiful Special Effect ~ Kuriositas - Aurora. Light pillars scrape the night sky over Alaska. It may look as if an alien invasion force is beaming down to overrun our little planet but, in fact, this is a purely natural phenomenon. Light and water is all that is needed to produce this remarkable special effect. When light, either natural or man-made comes in to contact with the facets of ice crystals in the air (usually close to the ground) it does one thing: bounce.

When the source of light is close to or on the ground the light pillar will appear above the floating crystals. The light pillar looks like a thin column that extends vertically above and/or below the source of light and does indeed give us the impression of some sort of transportation beam coming in to effect, particularly when it is at night and the phenomenon is caused by artificial light.
