This Guy Turned His Wife’s Shopping Trips Into a Hilarious Game

What to do while your significant other shops is a question that Western men have had to deal with since the birth of the shopping mall. Enterprising husband Steve Venegas has come up with a creative and fun game to play that will make shopping fun again. [Read more…]

The game is simple – dress up as a mannequin at the store you (or your significant other) is shopping at and take a picture. Venegas’ pictures are hilarious because, in most of them, he does his best to strike the same pose as the mannequin next to him. Each picture looks like he’s posing with a pale, decapitated twin brother. He shares the pictures, part of his Gap Mannequin Project, on the project’s Tumblr, gapmannequinproject.tumblr.com.

Now, instead of wasting money at cafes, bars or electronics stores, guys will finally have a way to have fun while their second halves shop. And obviously, the game translates well to women who are bored of shopping as well. If you try this “game” out, send us your pics!

50 Mind-Blowing Examples of Landscape Photography

How many of you have an expensive camera collecting dust instead of making photos? If you have the same problem like me, then you need some inspiration!

That’s why I want to show you a breathtaking collection of landscape photography. Hopefully, these pictures will be enough to get you moving (if not, you can put your camera on Ebay – you don’t need it anyway). [Read more…]

But before you go out to take pictures, don’t forget that an important element of landscape photography is the light to the scenery. It’s best to take photos at dusk or dawn with low angle light. This light renders the landscape with low contrast and sidelight giving a nice feeling of depth. Also, low contrast allows to capture more details.

Unfortunately, the perfect light goes away very quickly, so be sure to find the right angle in advance. When you’re done, come back and post your results in our comment section!

Souvenir Optical Illusions by Michael Hughes

At first glance, it may look like the real Big Ben. But wait… what’s that hand doing in there?

Actually, it’s the hand of photographer and tourist Michael Hughes who creates cool optical illusions by placing cheap souvenirs in front of famous landmarks. Michael has discovered the technique back in 1998 when he held up a postcard he bought for his daughter on the tourist platform at the Lorelei cliffs next to the river Rhine. [Read more…]

“I was amazed because it just seemed to fill a massive grey hole that was in the sky and it was the exact position the photographer had taken the picture from,” said Michael to Daily Mail.

His Flickr site is now well beyond the 5 million mark, but the absolute high point was when he got an email from the producer of the Jay Leno Show. Unfortunately, “the ensuing telephone conversation was enough to persuade her that he would be utterly useless on TV, so he missed his big chance.”

Unique Ammonite Washbasin by HighTech Design

This unique washbasin by HighTech Design was inspired by the spiral shape of ammonite shell. In case you didn’t know, Ammonites are an extinct species of free-swimming molluscs who lived in the ancient oceans around the same time that the dinosaurs walked the Earth and disappeared during the same extinction event[1]. Our panda fans from Facebook loved it, but Andre and Darik pointed out that it must be “a pain in the ass to clean”.

Office In Madrid Lets Employees Feel Like They’re Working in the Woods

This aerodynamic tube office, designed by Spanish architects Jose Selgas and Lucia Cano, allows its workers to feel as though they’re working in the middle of a picturesque Spanish forest.

Half of the office, which the two architects designed for their architecture firm Selgascano, is dug into the ground in a forest outside of Madrid. This ensures that the office stays cool even during the hot Spanish summers. [Read more…]

A long window that curves up to the ceiling runs along the length of the office and eliminates the need for artificial lighting during the day. This window is also attached to a hinge and pulley mechanism that allows it to open up and keep the building ventilated. The other half of the building features an insulated fiberglass wall that helps shade the office’s workers from direct sunlight.

The office building’s sunken floor, along with the large and unusual window, means that employees sitting at their desks have an eye-level view of the forest floor. This, combined with the view of the forest on one side and the sky above, make it seem like the office must be a fairly relaxing place to work. Imagine working every day in a sustainable building surrounded by a beautiful forest!

We mentioned Selgascano’s office in our post about cool offices around the world, so check it out if you want to see other ingenious office designs!
