Animals' Eyes Up Close Husky Suren Manvelyan, is a bit of a jack of all trades. He has a PhD in Theoretical Physics specializing in Quantum Chaos but has recently turned his attention to photographing the amazing detailed landscapes of eyes. The ones featured here are all from animals and includes a husky dog, snail, Siames cat, and even a crocodile as well as a few other creatures. With such close photos, one is able to see details such as the irises' color gradients, textures, patterns and even tiny blood vessels, causing these eyes to look like alien landscapes. Manvelyan has also photographed the human eye and photos of it can be found on his website.

20 Captivating Photos Shot At Exactly The Right Moment There are some things in life that make me feel dated (notice I didn’t use the word “old” LOL).

That is evident in these photographs taken at exactly the right moment. The photography we see these days is phenomenal.

Bled Island - Slovenia's Fairy Tale Isle Lake Bled in Slovenia has had visitors for thousands of years. Little wonder when you consider its mild climate and beautiful surroundings. The lake has an island, tear-shaped and the only real island in the virtually land-locked country. When people say that a place is like something from a fairy tale often they are exaggerating. Not with so Bled Island. Formed by a glacier it is every inch worthy of that description.

Spectacular Images of the Insides of Musical Instruments March 9, 2012 at 6:14am | by AP These ads by Bjoern Ewers for the Berlin Philharmonic show the insides of orchestral instruments in such a way as to make it seem like we are standing in spacious halls (or in the case of the flute, a spacious tunnel)… Via: Boing Boing

Colour photographs of circus performers, 1940s-1950s Ringling Brothers circus girl, 1945 Birthday flowers, 1941 Barnum & Bailey Showgirl, 1946 Performer Lottie Brunn, 1949 Aerial ballet showgirl, 1949 Artist Carves Vintage Books Into Astoundingly Intricate 3D Sculptures (Photos) : TreeHugger - StumbleUpon Photos: Guy Laramee With the increasing popularity of electronic readers and e-books, the future use of hard-bound books also comes under question. While designers have responded with the likes of lighting, accessories and even fashion made entirely out of old books, French Canadian artist Guy Laramée tackles it from a decidedly philosophical — and creative — perspective, carving intricate, three-dimensional landscapes that look amazingly real up close.

The rich bright gold, pink and orange colors make unusually beautiful pictures of animals illuminated by the sun.
