Главная The Photographers Society PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS · Luca Adamo If you ask me for it, I will say that Luca Adamo makes mainly street photography. Luca’s approach to the photographed reality in the urban environment is fully emotional: in his photography he treasures unique everyday fragments. And paradoxically, although the human figure is broadly absent from his shots there is in them a huge dose of humanity. Luca’s stylistic universe is broad. Luca shoots with a Canon 5D Mark II as a main camera that he complements with a lightest Fujifilm X20. -Juan Manuel

I told her insects fly through rain, missing every drop, never getting wet. The camera made me self-conscious and I stopped. "Go on, girl," she said. I had my audience. "What else?" Oh, yes. For her I would always have something else. "Did you know that when they taught the first chimp to talk, it lied? "Oh, that's good," she said. "There's more about the chimp," I said. "No, thanks," she says, and scratches at her mask. We look like good-guy outlaws. We call this place the Marcus Welby Hospital. She introduces me to a nurse as the Best Friend. "I was telling her we used to drink Canada Dry ginger ale and pretend we were in Canada." "That's how dumb we were," I say. "You could be sisters," the nurse says. So how come, I'll bet they are wondering, it took me so long to get to such a glamorous place? They do not ask. Two months, and how long is the drive? I mean, he died. "I can't remember," she says.

These Viral Two Sentence Horror Stories Are Creepier Than Any Scary Movie Seven months ago, a Reddit user asked a simple question: "What is the best horror story you can come up with in two sentences?" The response was deafening and blood curdling, and the conversation is just starting to go viral. The terror contained in these stories is different than the gross-out horror most blockbusters go for. These stories showcase a more subtle, creepier kind of fear, the kind we only feel when something is just teetering on the threshold of threatening. The incredible inventiveness of these lines also vindicate Twitter-style writing, which many critics have claimed is simply too restrictive to allow users to express complex thoughts. The following stories are sure to get your skin crawling during your afternoon lull this Friday. A girl heard her mom yell her name from downstairs, so she got up and started to head down.
