These were really professional photographers who took these pictures. Note how sharp and clear most of the photos are and these are over a 100 years old.

There aren't many old photos as good, remember they didn't have film or digital photo cards in those days. Most probable is that these were glass plate images and taken thru a pin hole type camera and the opening was timed just right to get a dark enough exposure. Developing was another tedious task which they had to be careful not to break the glass!

Trees are great: They give us shade in the summer, wood for our fires in the winter, we can build awesome treehouses on them, and most importantly - they produce oxygen!

Is it possible to built this triangle or is it just an optical illusion?

illusion_13If you take a look at the following  picture , you should now it is not animated.  Your eyes are making it move.  To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving.  Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving.  But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it.

Greek philosopher Plato wrote of the legendary city of Atlantis, that sunk to the bottom of the ocean.  Now photographer Andreas Franke has created a similar mythical underwater world for a new exhibition - but you can only see it with your scuba gear on.

by Boat from Key West, Florida

Armed with his camera, Mr Franke dove down to the Vandenberg, a United States missile tracking ship that sunk in 2009 off the coast of Key West, Florida, and used the spectacular images he took as a canvas for a surreal civilization that never existed.

When we relegate ourselves to the position of reflection within the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of thought, we have the ability to discover that our life has been greatly filled with beauty.  Other times we  may find another message within our own snapshots.

When we review our photographs, we often find coincidental themes that tell a different story to what the picture was intended to illustrate and memorialized.
