Still Looking For Paradise? Maldives - justpaste.it Double chain of twenty-six atolls… The Republic of Maldives, or simply the Maldives, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. It consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, along the north-south direction, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world. The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars, situated atop a submarine ridge 960 kilometers long that rises abruptly from the depths of the Indian Ocean and runs from north to south. Crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and fabulous dive sites – that’s why the Maldives, is known for being one of the best tropical holiday destinations in the world. ...and no need to climb ;)
Soap Flakes : Nathalie Stämpfli Soap Flakes Soap Blocks instead of liquid Soaps Today, most of the soap we use is liquid soap, which contains a lot of water.

The solid blocks can easily be piled and allow a greater space efficiency in a truck.
Pencil Vs Camera by Ben Heine Ben Heine (born June 12, 1983 in Abidjan, Ivory coast) is a Belgian multidisciplinary visual artist. He is best known for his original series “Pencil Vs Camera”, “Digital Circlism” and “Flesh and Acrylic”. “Pencil Vs Camera” mixes drawing and photography, imagination and reality. It’s a new visual concept invented and initiated by Ben Heine in 2010. It’s full of magic, illusion, poetry and surrealism. Ben published his first “Pencil Vs Camera” image in April 2010 but the series is the result of a long graphic exploration and a logic consequence of his personal artistic development.
Incredible time-lapse shows the Milky Way from the plains of South Dakota The spiral galaxy that is the Milky Way is beautifully portrayed in the latest must-see time-lapse video shot by Randy Halverson. Halverson wowed us previously with his Sub-Zero time-lapse that was shot during the frigid midwestern winter. The snow has since melted and Halverson is back in the same locations, showing the awesome night skies of the South Dakota plains. The Milky Way, which has upwards of 400 billion stars, was captured by Halverson who spent the month of May shooting the footage when time and weather permitted. He said the biggest challenge was getting a clear night, as many were cloudy and windy, and few were clear enough for capturing the stars.

Armed with his camera, Mr Franke dove down to the Vandenberg, a United States missile tracking ship that sunk in 2009 off the coast of Key West, Florida, and used the spectacular images he took as a canvas for a surreal civilisation that never existed.

Now readily available technology lets devotees take to the sky for photography, mapping, and even delivering love notes a la robotic carrier pigeons.

The Girl Who Loves to Levitate (14 photos) Natsumi Hayashi is a sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, "jumps" into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don't feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life. When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared.
