I don't know whether to say "yuck" or "wow". The creativity is wonderful, but... :13

The Naked World of Spencer Tunick

One of these pics showed up on my FB from the Atlantic and at first I thought it was just a picture of Texture but it was a whole mass of naked people. At the link they show a bunch more and some of its fascinating. Especially the colored ones. Take a look.

Very interesting... I picked one to post as an example... possed on the steps of the Sydney Opera House... I have been there, but was fully clothed throughout. :24

Naked volunteers pose for Spencer Tunick in front of the Sydney Opera House, on March 1, 2010. Organizers estimated 5,200 people posed for the early morning nude photo installation titled "Mardi Gras: The Base". (Reuters/Tim Wimborne)

What do you see?

Spoiler:
You see the girl sitting while the boy hugs her neck?

Look again ...... actually it's the other way around!

Look how your eyes can deceive you!

Artist creates amazingly detailed paintings using her fingertips

From MSN: http://now.msn.com/judith-braun-finger-painting-goes-viral

Judith Braun, best known for appearing on season one of Work of Art and installing a 13-foot sculpture of a blue penis in New York in 1994, is now taking her work in a more tactile dimension with her “fingering” paintings, large scale drawings rendered only with her fingertips. Art fans on Reddit made her images go viral and we’re staggered at the size and precise symmetry she’s pulled off with just her bare hands (and painter’s tape and guides and, we have to imagine, a couple dozen erasers). Impressive!

That was a tricky one about the girl/guy reading a book. Loved the 20th century famous pictures and the music with them. And I couldn't stand the scraping of fingernails either but wow what beautiful work.

Cliff-hanging photo goes viral

Image


An American woman who sent a joke photo of her near-death experience at the Grand Canyon to scare her mother has become a viral hit.

Samantha Busch got her boyfriend to snap a picture of her apparently about to slip from the edge of a cliff in the canyon.

She then posted the photo to Reddit, with the caption: "Mom was worried about my trip to the Grand Canyon, I sent her this picture."

But she was in fact standing safely on a ledge out of shot. Busch says she was trying to teach her over-protective mother a lesson.

"For five days up to when we left, my mom had warned me about falling off the cliff or being blown off," she told ABC News.

"So when while I was there, I found a cool little spot that I could sneak into, and lean back and look like I am falling off, and I thought that would be a great picture to send back home to my parents."

Truck painters at it again
Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are carrying are painted on the sides and back.
(I'll post the 7 photos over time)

Truck 1: beer and looks so real , like it is coming out the side of the trailer.
