To Scale: The Solar System. Maapallo myytävänä | Prisma Studio. Kukaan ei ole vegaani! – Tarinoita kestävästä kehityksestä. Osa meistä ihmisistä innostuu helposti. Erityisen helposti innostumme asioista, joilla koetamme muuttaa elämäämme positiiviseen suuntaan. Yksi tällainen muutos voi olla ruokavalion laittaminen uuteen uskoon, esimerkiksi jättämällä eläinperäiset tuotteet pois ruokavaliosta. Tällaista ruokavaliota kutsutaan vegaaniseksi ruokavalioksi ja sen noudattajia vegaaneiksi.

Yleisemmin veganismilla ymmärretään kaikista eläinperäisistä tuotteista luopumista. Kirjahyllystäni löytyy Christien Meindertsman loistava teos PIG 05049, joka on hieno kuvakirja siitä, mihin kaikkeen siasta saatavia raaka-aineita voidaan käyttää. Kun miettii, että maailmassa tapetaan pelkästään siipikarjaa, sikoja ja nautoja noin 65 miljardia yksilöä vuodessa ja näiden ohella esimerkiksi lampaita, vuohia, kameleita ja muita ei-teollisesti kasvatettuja eläimiä, ei ole mikään ihme, että myös ruoaksi kelpaamatonta ainesta jää näistä eläimistä teurastuksen jälkeen jäljelle valtava määrä. 40 maps that explain the world. By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to.

So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources.

Famous landmarks like the Arc Du Triumph, the Pyramids of Giza, and the Sagrada Familia have been photographed countless times by photographers from around the world, and they are recognizable to most, if not all, of us. But this collection of stunning aerial photographs gives us a bird’s-eye-view of these places, casting them in a totally new light.

Most of the pictures are of places or things that most of us could easily identify right away. The images illustrate just how much a change in perspective can alter. It’s also worth noting that a few of these sites, like the Pyramids of Giza and the hotels in Dubai, were designed with an aerial perspective in mind. Although taking photographs from a bird’s actual perspective is possible, most photographers prefer taking pictures like these from hot-air balloons, helicopters, gliders, or very tall structures.

Beauty of the nature lies in viewer’s eyes. A photograph is just a way to show or represent that beauty.
