Here's an angle you don't see every day. (Unless you're a security camera or something.) Photographer Menno Aden installed a camera in the ceiling of living rooms, kitchens, bars, lobbies, elevators, subways and more, creating images that flatten out spaces we'd normally be familiar with, but never get to see like this. Think about it: what would your room really look like?
The fine astronauts onboard the ISS have been very kind to us space nerds. Its cameras have blessed us with more breathtaking timelapses than we can count. And now onboard astronaut Don Pettit is kicking things into hyperspace with this set of gorgeous "star trails" that look like they've been plucked right out of Tron.
If you're like me, then after seeing Pixar's Up, you've thought about how many balloons it'd take to float your abode off to some distant paradise. French artist Laurent Chehere wasn't able to round up enough balloons, but he does have a camera and some photo manipulation chops.
Zhao Huasen isn't a magician and he definitely didn't invent any magical invisible paint. The artist uses clever photo manipulation tricks to "erase" the bicycles from this set of photos, making people seem like they're riding on air.
On Saturday, May 5, photographers all around the world were presented with a bright, tempting target in the much anticipated "supermoon," which occurs when the moon's elliptical orbit brings it closer to the Earth while full. In other words, it's the largest the moon can look to us terrans, though whether or not our earthbound eyes can actually detect the difference is up for debate. Thankfully, cameras allow us to choose how we want to see and present the world, so here's a collection of photos that show the supermoon as it should be: massive. Check it out in our gallery below.
Maybe you're one to share pictures of your lunch on Instagram, or maybe you're a professional photographer who uses it as an easy way to share your work. Either way, a site called Instacanvas wants your pics to turn into physical, framed prints — and you'd get a buck out of it, too.
Deborah Bay's "The Big Bang" is a photo set like that of which you've never seen. In it are clusters of galaxies and space rock that even NASA can't capture. That's because the galaxies in Bay's photos aren't real — they're actually macro photos of bullets shot into plexiglass. Yowza!
Think I Can Has Cheezburger invented the 'lolcat?' Wrong! Harry Pointer, a photographer from the 1870s was actually the first recorded photographer to pose his cats in all sorts of hilarious positions. Here's a sampling of the modern day lolcats' ancestors cheesing it up in the 19th century.
Last night, amateur photographer Phil McGrew shot what could be one of the most remarkable photos of lightning ever captured. Pointing his camera out of his apartment window overlooking San Francisco's Bay Bridge, he set a 20 second exposure to snag this photo of eight lighting bolts striking the bridge.
The Hubble Telescope has captured some amazing pictures in its day, but this one is warped. In a good way.
