Photographer Turns his 91-Year Old Grandma into a Superhero to Cheer Her Up

Photographer Turns his 91-Year Old Grandma into a Superhero to Cheer Her Up
A few years ago photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. So to cheer her up, and put a spark back into her life, he turned her into a superhero! He took a series of awesome photographs of her wearing costumes in unusual superhero type posses. "Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling." Frederika isn't only a superhero in these photos, but she was a real hero during World War II. Here's her story... Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. These photos are great, and they definitely put a smile on my face.

Abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans I met fellow explorers Mike Rosati and Minda Vermazen for the first time in the Las Vegas Airport, en route to New Orleans to photograph the abandoned Six Flags Theme Park that closed when Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005. We read online that the park was being dismantled and sold for scrap beginning in January 2011, so with little time to spare, we hastily made plans to visit during the first week of December 2010. Our plane landed around midnight, and we drove straight to the park on a cursory scouting mission.
