Christmas Dominos

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day, filled with all the food you can eat and all the presents you could want.

(And a special Merry Christmas to all the people I met travelling around Africa.)


Tilt-Shift Van Gogh

Tilt-shift is a photographic effect that uses a special lens to give a real-world scene the illusion of being a miniature model. A similar effect can be achieved with Photoshop;  Serena Malyon tried tilt-shifting paintings to see what would happen.  These Van Gogh paintings come out beautifully.

More pictures can be found here.

Mila’s Daydreams

Adele Enersen creates pictures with her sleeping daughter and posts the photos to Mila’s Daydreams.

This blog is my maternity leave hobby. While my baby is taking her nap, I create scene around her and take quick snap photos.  I use only few minutes per picture, including creating idea, implementation and editing, ’cause I don’t want to disturb her sleeping.

Desk Made Of Books

This clever information desk is in the Architectural Library at the Delft University of Technology.  I like the way the books are arranged into colour layers.


Pencil Art

I think these intricately craved pencils are by someone called Dalton, but I can’t read the German on the original site to be sure.

Staple City

Peter Root constructed Ephemicropolis from staples.

Stacks of staples were broken into varying sizes from full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples. These stacks were then stood up and arranged over a period of 40 hours.
