Skelewags - Urban Art (by @baekdal) #design Written by Thomas Baekdal | Thursday, August 30, 2007 This cartoon concept by "Chewie" is great - mixing real world environments with cartoon characters. The style with skull like cartoon figures are not that special, but the overall style is. Still life: Bent objects ? Article ?

Little polish girl McDonalds as Sculpture Materials Yeah, this is where those come from Making Your Own Fertilizer: Free Fertilizer Recipes Most gardeners are the do-it-yourself types. The very act of gardening is do-it-yourself in nature. So why are you still buying fertilizer? Sure it works wonders, but it’s expensive, the packaging is wasteful and the way it’s produced is often not sustainable.

National Geographic’s Photography Contest 2010 A supercell thunderstorm rolls across the Montana prairie at sunset. (Photo and caption by Sean Heavey) Salvation. Appreciate life to save the world. (Photo and caption by Hongsik Kim) Namibia's Coastal Parks - Behind the Lens: Photograph or Painting? While on assignment in Namibia for National Geographic magazine, Frans Lanting captured this surreal landscape image in a location called Dead Vlei. Due to the nature of the lighting in the frame, the photograph appears almost like a painting. We asked Lanting to take a few moments away from his current assignment in Africa to answer readers' questions about the photograph. Due to limited internet connectivity in the field, he was only able to provide brief responses to questions, so we asked Elizabeth Krist—Lanting's photo editor for this story—to offer additional detail where appropriate.(If you are interested in acquiring this image as a fine art print, please e-mail gallery@lanting.com.)

Snowflakes Up Close: A Small, Fragile World If you’re one of those people who likes to ponder things while looking out a frosty window on a cold winter day, these pictures will clear up one of those long standing wonders: each snowflake really IS unique. Some look like roman columns, others circuit boards or spaceships. Taken under high magnification using a microscope, these images bring a fragile and beautiful world into view. See Also HARMFUL VIRUSES MADE OF BEAUTIFUL GLASS A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through.

How to Bring Minerals Back Into the Soil and Food Supply Dr. MercolaWaking Times There are now many studies clearly documenting that if you eat processed foods, you’re being exposed to toxic herbicides. These toxic chemicals have been found in everything from breast milk to umbilical cords and placentas. This of course means that children are now born with a chemical burden unknown to previous generations.

This World is Awesome (20 photos) As a National Geographic photographer since 1995, Stephen Alvarez has explored our world in ways most of us can only imagine. His global stories have won him numerous awards and taken him to amazing places, much like our all-time favorite photographer, Steve McCurry. Over the past fifteen years, Alvarez chronicled the world's unseen landscapes and then called the series Earth from Below.

Radiation-Proof Microbes Could Survive on Mars Credit: David M. Ward From bacteria that can survive inside rocks to microbes that can withstand tremendous heat, cold and radiation, life can take some extreme forms. These enterprising creatures reveal not just the resilience of life on Earth, but the possibilities for life elsewhere in the universe. Here are some especially amazing examples of so-called extremophiles. The Girl Who Loves to Levitate (14 photos) Natsumi Hayashi is a sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, "jumps" into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don't feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life.

He's a beefy man in bib overalls, a plaid shirt, and well-worn boots, with short, gray-streaked hair peeking out from a trucker hat over a round, unlined face ruddy from the sun. 20 Brilliantly Done Infrared Images Copyright © 1999-2012 GoDaddy.com, LLC.
