Liquid Sculpture, Touchdown Jesus, & more

  • Martin Waugh produces gorgeous images of fluids in motion–something he calls Liquid Sculpture.  As you’d expect, creating the images depends on high-speed photography.  Related: Marc Pawliger points out the 10-nanosecond exposures needed to capture nuclear fireballs.
  • ¿Donde esta la biblioteca? Right here, in a series of beautiful photos.[Via]  Some of the shots could have benefitted from HDR, and it’s too bad they don’t include pix of the rad new Seattle Public Library (or maybe ND’s Touchdown Jesus). Still, it’s a great collection.
  • "This seems more like a John Nack item…" writes John Dowdell, and so it is, but I’ve been delayed in posting it (dang actual job slowing me down): Little People is "a tiny street art project" that leaves tiny figures around London. [Via]  It makes me think of the miniature food sculptures of French pastry chef/photographer team Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle.  For my part, I used to carry around a GI Joe head that I’d photograph in all kinds of situations (say, the middle of Death Valley).  I named him Sgt. Goldbug, after the little Richard Scarry creation who’d hide somewhere on every page.
  • Speaking of food, Worth1000 features some deeply unappetizing Photoshop food mash-ups.  (Of course, these are not quite as nauseating as that McDLT ad with Jason Alexander.)
