From Burri’s iconic shot of Che Guevara smoking a cigar, to his beautifully composed photographs of the construction of Brasilia, his black-and-white photography is ingrained in the collective consciousness.
Previously less-known are his colour photographs that he has continually taken alongside his black-and-white work. This book introduces a retrospective of his personal selection of colour photographs. (read more)
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE
“Not only was he one of the great post war photographers, he was also one of the most generous people I have had the privilege to meet,” Martin Parr, President of Magnum Photos said in a statement. “[His] contribution to Magnum and his unrivalled ability to tell stories and entertain us over this time will be part of his enormous legacy. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to his family.”
“With René Burri, the world of photography loses one of its most powerful artists, a true humanist, who skillfully documented from behind-the-scenes the suffering and joy of human kind,” said Burri’s family. (read more)
This is really cool. In a space nerdy sort of way. :)

The appropriate response to seeing an abused dog
She is the best.
This is perfect. She is perfect.

Harley Quinn #1 by Amanda Conner
I imagine she wouldn’t treat people well when she discovered a dog in a hot car in summer.
Canadian model Stephanie Branton, who originally hailed from Conception Bay South in Newfoundland, graces the cover and is the September 2014 Playboy Playmate of the Month. Nice to see a Canadian on the cover. :)

This is what really killed off the dinosaurs.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
Large scale impermanent awesome.
The Pawshank Redemption
pawshank… :) purrfect title.
Game of Thrones. The Mountain and the Viper
So much happened. Glad it isn’t the season finale yet. Though this one very well could have been. While nothing is ever as it seems, someone appears to be dressing more evil these days - and looking good while doing it. The episode was certainly, at one point, reminiscent of Kids in the Hall. ;)
With the Bifröst destroyed, trees get lost and simply fall off the edge of the universe and never reach Miðgarðr.
I almost cried this is too cute.
This girl just used Force Choke on my heart.
:) The feels, I mean the Force, is strong with this.
if you live in the US and have ever sent a message telling the recipient to kill themselves, you’ve committed the felony of encouraging suicide and, depending on the state’s laws (meaning, what class of felony it is), you could be looking at a fine of $25,000+ and 10+ years in prison, just for encouragement
and if they actually do it, you are legally responsible and, in some states, you can also be charged with manslaughter
Which translates to: don’t be a dick. People need help at times. Not encouragement to kill themselves. And if you do it, living with what you have done could be the least of your problems.
Oh wow, that’s a powerful gifset right there…
