Through a narrow gorge it emerges into view, revealing awe-inspiring monuments cut into the surrounding cliffs. What is this astonishing city? Who built it, and why? Two thousand years ago, Petra stood at a crossroads of the ancient Near East. Camel caravans passed through, loaded with spices, textiles and incense from distant regions--and through such commerce, the city flourished.

How Kentridge draws you in It was a dense, hour-long almost-performance, dancing between apparently unrelated thoughts using Plato's allegory of the cave, and its shadows, as a metaphor. Yes, he used a metaphor on a Thursday evening to explain how the rational philosopher feels he has the moral right and obligation to lead people from ignorance into knowledge. Or something like that. I know my Plato. Or so I thought.

The Changing Shape of Cinema: The History of Aspect Ratio Aspect Ratio is a fundamentally simple concept with a deep and important history. Simply put, the aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of the image to the height. This can be expressed as two numbers like 4×3 or 16×9 or as a decimal such as 1.85 and 2.35 – though these can be written as a ratio as in 2.35:1. But how did it all begin? Animals Illuminated by the Sun The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon in the west. There are few things in nature as photogenic as the sky at sunset, especially animals. The rich bright gold, pink and orange colors make unusually beautiful pictures of animals illuminated by the sun. Source Source Source

Fairy Tale Cottages Okay here is something different. Cottages houses like what we feature today have been romanticized since the early fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel and have a way of infinitely reminding us of gingerbread houses, and cookies, and sugar! What makes a cottage so distinctive from other small homes is its dark thatched roof, and the way it envelops the cottage like melted cheese. (funny how cottage cheese looks nothing like this) These homes were traditionally built by a waterfront and made out of logs or other natural materials. Also known as a cabin, they were used as a way of modest country living, but are now more popular as weekend and summer homes for city dwellers who are looking to get away.

CRACKED: 15 Mind-Blowing Old-Timey Photos As we've reminded you before, people in the past just didn't give a shit. They were too busy being crazy and taking pictures of it to be bothered with how those pictures would make them look in 80 or 90 years. It's like they're daring us to make sense of them, and once again, we've risen boldly to the challenge. #15. "That's Two People Sharing a Costume, Right?"
