There’s a lot of amazing recycled art out there, but French artist Edouard Martinet stands out with his unique, recognizable style and pain-staking perfectionism and attention to detail. The insects and other critters that he crafts from spare parts look like fantastic creatures out of an alternate retro universe.
Martinet collects old spare parts at flea markets and car part sales. He then assembles these parts into beautiful insects and other animals. His pieces can take anywhere from a month to seventeen years – he is obsessed with finding just the right part for his wonderful creations. What’s more, he does not solder his art the way that many other recycled-material artists do – he finds parts that fit perfectly or near-perfectly and mostly uses screws to link them together.

As if you needed another reason not to drink sea water! David Liittschwager, an accomplished award-winning photographer who has created numerous marine wildlife photos for National Geographic, has created an image showing the microfauna that exists inside a single drop of seawater!

At first I thought it was a great idea, now I’m not so sure. Several commenters pointed out that bread is bad for birds. For example, people at Eugene’s Alton Baker park were asked to stop feeding bread to birds because it can cause a condition called “angel wing”. The condition is marked by a deformed wing and spindly feathers that poke out at right angles. It’s a result of a poor diet, such as calorie-rich breads, that causes birds’ feathers to develop faster than their bones. I’m sure the idea author Curro Claret wasn’t aware of that and all he wanted to do is to feed his little friends.
Newlyweds Katie Young and James Lowder have shared what is already called the best wedding photo ever, where the whole party is captured running for their lives from an enormous Tyrannosaurus rex.
The picture was taken and tweaked in Photoshop by a Louisiana-based wedding photographer Quinn Miller, and the idea to include a dinosaur came from James’ love for them. While clearly not every bride would agree into something like that, it would be even harder to find one that acts as well as Katie does. All the friends of the couple turned out to be very enthusiastic as well, and when you zoom the picture in, their priceless expressions prove how much they loved the idea. [Read more…]
