They say you are what you eat, and it’s especially true with the translucent ants. Scientist Mohamed Babu from Mysore, India, placed specially colored sugar drops in his garden to attract the weird insects his wife found near the house sipping the spilled milk.
“The idea for the photograph came to me after my wife showed me some ants that turned white sipping the spilled milk drops on our kitchen counter,” says Mohamed.
Some of the ants would even move from one color to another resulting in new color combinations in their stomachs.
Most of us have very usual cars – maybe an old VW, or a red fancy Ferrari. Our roads are full of those, but they rarely catch our attention. While VW can mean, that you have some financial problems, Ferrari shows that you are a rich lucky bastard. But in the end, you still get lost in the ocean of similar cars.
However, if you really want to stand out of the crowd, and show not only your financial status, but also your personality – what you need is something that cannot be found in any auto store. Something crazy, strange and absolutely unique.
To give you some hints, we collected these 20 Weirdest and Most Unusual Cars Ever Made.
Enjoy, share and don’t forget to tell us which is your favorite one!
You probably have already seen some pictures of Liu Bolin before (or didn’t even realize he was there) and now he’s back with some more cool camouflage art! For those who missed our earlier posts, see here and here.
Born in 1973 in Shandong and a graduate of Shandong Art College and Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, Liu Bolin became popular for his mastery at the art of camouflaging himself against virtually any background.
One single photo takes up to 10 hours to prepare – Liu uses himself as a blank canvas, and with a little help from an assistant, he paints his body to merge as seamlessly as possible with what is behind him. The results are incredible – sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is around until he moves.
This time we compiled a list of the world’s top 5 most talented 3D sidewalk artists showcasing some of their best works. Those guys are: Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever, Kurt Wenner, Manfred Stader, and Eduardo Rolero.
These talented street artists have crafted an amazing ability to trick the eyes of passersby into seeing 3 dimensional sceneries and objects on a completely flat asphalt. Their works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
Art of this style can be produced by taking a photograph of an object or setting at a sharp angle, then putting a grid over the photo, another, elongated grid on the footpath based on a specific perspective, and reproducing exactly the contents of one into the other, one square at a time.
National Geographic photographer Joe McNally snapped a shot that some call “the mother of all rooftopping photos.” Standing atop the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, Joe shared this amazing photo on Instagram from about 820 meters high!
