I just discovered this hot new photo sharing service called Instagram, you should really check it out. I hear Mark Zuckerberg is a huge fan. In all seriousness I finally started using an account I setup a few years ago, so look me up under Colossal.

The Trashcam Project: German Garbage Men Convert Dumpsters into Pinhole Cameras

April 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson

A group of enterprising and rather creative garbage men out of Hamburg, Germany have blended work with artistic expression by converting dumpsters into giant pinhole cameras, dubbed the Trashcam Project. The method is pretty straightforward: by drilling a small hole on one side of the dumpster, an image is projected onto a giant sheet of photo paper suspended inside. Each shot takes about an hour to capture and its then developed in their special lab. See many more photos from the ongoing project here. (via petapixel, photojojo)

The image is comprised of hundreds of photographs shot from daytime to nighttime that have been digitally stitched together to represent an entire rotation of the Earth. (via news.com.au)

In this unbelievable new video, Swiss pilot Yves Rossy (previously) is seen soaring above the Alps strapped to his one-of-a-kind jet-propelled wing craft. It’s incredible to me that after well over a century of manned flight, we continue to make technological advances like this. My son after seeing this: “Dad, next time is it our turn?” Rossy was filmed by aerial camera operator Evert Cloetens. (via devour)

Update: An early version of this post misattributed these photos as the work of Hana Al-Sayed. They are actually the work of Jacob Sutton (previously).
