Found via my buddy, this russian giga-plane uses the “ground effect” to achieve a level flight near the surface of the earth, the distance relative to the wingspan. Here’s another picture of this leviathan.
I snapped a bunch of photos from yesterdays climate conference demo in Copenhagen. They say there were up to 100.000 of us.
Beautiful rounded pictures by Alexandre Duret-Lutz. Unless the chap has a really wierd camera, I would guess it’s the work of Photoshops “polar coordinates” filter, combined with a little careful retouching. Well done.
The team behind the now sweetest photo gallery offering has just released version 1.1. Zenphoto now offers EXIF file information, sub-albums, auto-watermarking, video embedding, tagging and searching.
I’m proud to say that I was once a tiny minuscule part in the development, as I designed what to my surprise is still the default Zenphoto theme. Read from the archives of Noscope for an indepth review of what I had to say about the design.
Zenphoto 1.1 is a delicious homerun for photography enthusiasts. I have it installed now; here’s my recommendations that you—the photo enthusiast reader—do the same.
I spent this weekend with good friends, eating good food, reading, drinking a few beers and sitting by the fire. It reminded me how important the lazy sunday is. Simply, taking a break from things, watching the specks of dust move around in the light.
Dryad — a deity or nymph of the woods
I have to admit that “Dryads” is pretty much last months concept, revamped. There are a two reasons for this:
- It is okay to milk a novel idea. Recycling is good.
- I’ve been busy elsewhere and needed something light and relaxing.
Reason #1 explains itself.
Reason #2 deserves explanation; coming up with a concept is the hard part. Once that concept has been formulated, elaborated and actualized, it’s just play from there. Happy 2006, and be nice to the trees this year!
