From the Arctic to America, artist Leonid Tishkov has travelled the world with his illuminated crescent-shaped moon, bringing a sense of lyricism, and sometimes whimsy, to the places he lands.
This is most most bizarre underwater world in Austria’s (western Europe).It complicity different with other Nature gifts.yes the winter time almost half of the year,the lake is almost completely dry and people used as a park. However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts from surrounding mountains, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water.each and every year 12m of water rising temperatures.

I’m a sucker for digital collages and I’ve been meaning to do some sort of image mashing with the huge collection over at the Library of Congress. There’s everything from blueprints to propaganda posters, but I found the vintage baseball card collection to be especially intriguing. The collection boasts 2,100 cards from 1887 to 1914, and they provided good subjects for my images.
However, the spark that pushed me to actually make some collages was the massive collection (80,000+ scans!) of journals, encyclopedias and annals from the Biodiversity Heritage Library's Flickr page (h/t Gems). And so I stayed up into the early morning looking at beautiful, high-res, detailed illustrations of insects, animals, plants, etc. etc. and decided to Photoshop some of my tiny baseball players into them.
Moreover, I just want to stress the importance of the archival work of the BHL and many other organizations like it. Best of all, all of the images are Creative Commons and for fair use. Beautiful!

I’m done with this planet… but like… in a good way.
In his Broken Flower series photographer Jon Shireman soaked various kinds of flowers in a liquid nitrogen bath for up to 30 minutes before using a special spring-loaded contraption to slam them against a surface at high speed. He then photographed the hundreds of fragments spread across a white surface like sharp glass shards. Beautiful work.
