In his Half-Drag series, New York photographer Leland BobbĂ© captures the two sides of the big apple's drag queens.  The extravagantly made-up drag divas and the organic men that lie beneath. "Through the power of hair and makeup these men are able to completely transform themselves and find their female side while simultaneously showing their male side." Identities of the models are composed in camera and NOT by separate images edited in post production and/or photoshop.

Because of our forefathers, the LGBTQ community are fortunate enough to live in a more tolerant world. "Queens," or men who defy gender norms and dress as women, have always been present in the LGBTQ community and pop culture: Straight men like Flip Wilson and Milton Berle used them as punch lines in their humor; Divine created a media sensation when she burst onto the scene; and RuPaul began to break down barriers with her mainstream pop hit, "Supermodel (Of the World)," and a cheeky VH1 talk show. RuPaul's popular reality competition show RuPaul's Drag Race helped bring drag queens further into the mainstream consciousness.

Misty white dissolves into streaks of grey. Turquoise weaves through a background of tan and black. Modern art? Or a view of our planet like no other, taken from thousands of miles up.These beautiful, at times abstract, images are the work of Google Earth View, a collection of the most striking landscape photographs taken by Google Earth satellites with a little color enhancement.
