I’m really enjoying these surreal images by Kiev-based photographer Oleg Oprisco. His use of color and perspective is really striking and unlike anything I’ve seen before. You can follow his work more closely on 500px or Flickr.
Over the past two months NASA has been releasing a number of wonderful long exposure photographs taken by astronaut Don Pettit aboard the International Space Station. While there are many photos like these taken from the perspective of the Earth’s surface, Pettit’s images are unique in that they incorporate the passing blur of entire illuminated cities, aurora, and the sporadic flashes of lightening from thunderstorms. Check out many more photos from the series here. (via petapixel)
Photographer Shikhei Goh lives and works on a small industrialized island called Batam Island, that’s a 45 minute boat ride south of Singapore. Goh calls himself a “macro addict” and indeed his portfolio is loaded with incredible photographs of the local flora and fauna of Batam from turtles, lizards, birds and especially insects. My favorite images are his intimate shots of insect eyes that appear metallic and almost robotic. See much more over on 500px.
I never tire of seeing what Minneapolis designer Brock Davis decides to do with his food. From his famous broccoli house to his gummy bear skin rug and the fantastic rice krispyhenge, he never seems to run out of ingenious ideas. The destiny of the three cucumbers sitting in my kitchen has just changed dramatically.
