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. Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. These photos are great, and they definitely put a smile on my face.

Max Wanger Photography Things We Saw Today: Pink Batgirl by Jamie Frevele | 4:55 pm, May 20th, 2011 Girls just wanna have fun — and fight crime. (At Fashionably Geek) Here is an easy way to catch up on the last six years of Doctor Who. Can you imagine a time when we didn’t have infographics? Would you even want to? I thought to myself “Haha, it’d be really funny if somebody followed some kid and his parents into a dark alley and then pretended to mug them after that show,” which I think means that I am a horrible person. We want you to check out all the things we see every day, but this item especially: After several young people committed suicide after being bullied last fall, comic writers Charles “Zan” Christensen and Mark Brill were inspired to write a comic about a bullied teen who becomes his own hero. Motionographer has an interview with one of the creative talents behind the Game of Thrones opening title sequence: I had a conversation two years ago with Carolyn Strauss, who we’ve done several main titles with at HBO.

You have probably spotted other dogs do that as well on the high way. The feel of the wind in their fur is just something that fascinates them I guess. Maybe they have the need for speed, who knows?

This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? If you liked this you’ll also enjoy Roman Ondak’s Room of Heights and Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s helium-filled kinetic drawing sculpture.
