ImageSnap Ceramic Tiles

Instagram is huge right now. My sister-in-law, Vanessa has been chronicling baby Henry’s life with the app and the pictures are awesome. For her birthday this year, I decided to try out ImageSnap. They take your Instagram (or any) photos and print them on ceramic tiles. The teeny tiles are 2″ by 2″ and are the perfect size for fridge magnets. They turned out really great and I’ll definitely be ordering more real soon.


Vessels and Blooms

Wow. Photographer Jack Long takes un-altered, single-capture shots of splashing liquid meant to look like flowers and vases. Takes high-speed photography to a new level and kind of blows my mind. Well done.

Wonderland Photos by David Gray

Reuters photographer David Gray has captured the partially-built and abandoned amusement park Wonderland in Chenzhuang Village, China, just outside of Beijing. While investors hoped it would become the biggest amusement park in the East, funding ran out and the 100-acre development was left behind. These photos are incredibly haunting.
