cruel cryo

Fuck! I forgot to wear my wings today!

blue glowing lava escaping from Kawah Ijen volcano

This video shows blue glowing lava escaping from Kawah Ijen volcano in East Java. The blue glow is caused by the burning sulphur that is found at this site.
Miners have run ceramic pipes from vents in the side of the mountain to collection points inside a large crater where the molten chemical is left to cool before being broken up and carried away.
Thank you Liam Andrew for the summary in english ;-)

cruel donuts!

Kalie Garrett

Kalie Garrett is a 19-year-old photographer who takes such vulnerable self-portraits, you can't help but get emotional when you look at them. Rather than describe them myself, here are some touching testimonials left on her Flickr page:

"You probably know by now how much I adore your work. I mean, your photography is like a drug to me. I can get lost in your stream so easily and just look for hours and hours on end. The kind of emotion you show in your photos is unique and different from any other photos I've seen."

"From the moment i first discovered your work, I was incredibly inspired. You were the one who showed me what emotion is. I look at a photo and listen to the song in the description.. I'll look at the picture for like ten minutes because it is so incredible how you can make me feel your emotion."

"They want to make me rip my heart out and tear it to shreds, yet at the same time put my hand to my chest and hear my heart beat. Because your photos make me feel alive. They flood my eyes with the most honest emotions that sometimes I can't even look, that or I can't pull my eyes away."

Alex Stoddard

Alex Stoddard is one of those talented teenage photographers who knows how to express themselves. His self-portraits are all incredibly unique and after viewing them you're left wondering where he's going to take you next.

What I enjoy most is that you can almost feel his passion come through. His commitment to not only executing on an idea but doing it well, is apparent to anyone who sees his photos.

I got in touch with Alex to ask him a few questions, including how his style evolved while taking on the 365 project. (That is, to shoot and share one picture each day.) Read that interview below after enjoying his very creative self-portraits.
