Turkish photographer wraps landscapes with inception like drone photos

The landscapes are curved to an almost an 180° degree view offer a much preferred wider range. The series Flatland drinks in the landscape, and alters them in a continuous layer of carefully stitched together drone photo to offer a monotonous , single shot photograph.

Aydın Büyüktaş, who pioneered the Flatland drone photography technique worked extensively on his shots which are breathtaking imagery reminiscent of the mind-bending scenes from the movie Inception. He list of work is published in “Flatlands” and he has gone on to open a second part of the project in Flatlands 2.

Blending light and architecture for geometry across europe :Tobia Gwrish

Tobias Gawrisch :  website : Facebook : Instagram : 500px : Fotolia

Walking through water drenched streets – camera  in hand.  Never minding the rain  , as he wanders various corners and alleyways find my spot, this latest project took him over to find and more hours for an Image taking process to be completed.  Before now Tobias has been through various photographic communities, architecture forums and even Google Maps for new and amazing buildings he could  photograph.

” I  don’t mind travelling across countries to do so! he had said ,  ”  Since I’m live in Germany, most of my architecture photography comes from German cities (where I also host workshops on Architecture Photography in German) but I’m curious to travel to other countries to find even more interesting buildings!”

Characteristics of his images are “stunted  illumination  with shades ” achieved through  lengthy exposure time ( usually 8 min ) to allow in more light . The images , although of  different exposures are  blended together with  photoshop  , to recreate as much detail as possible ; preserving their characters and natural definitions during post-processing.

 Tobias is a self-taught Germany based  professional photographer, who passion  revolves around  tracking  down amazing architecture and photographing  them in ways that really emphasises the architecture styles and vision of the architects ;  by simultaneously being a work of art in itself.

 He offers photography workshops  aimed at advanced photographers who already master the basic camera technology (manual exposure) and basic principles of the composition. Tobias who also do other types of  picture taking , categorize his types of photographic styles in four areas:

  • Food photography
  • Product photography
  • Architectural Photography (Interior / Outdoor)

Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 Grand title winner : Tim Laman

High in the canopy, a young male orang-utan returns to feast on a crop of figs. Tim knew he would be back. After three days of climbing up and down himself, he hid several GoPro cameras in the canopy, triggering them remotely from the forest floor when he saw the orang-utan climbing. He had long visualised this shot, looking down on the orang-utan within its forest home.

A vital story captured in one remarkable frame by Tim Laman , a wild life photographer aiming to bring the plight of such orang-utan to more people . The story is well-known but we need outstanding photography like this to bring it across to us afresh . It touches our hearts and our minds – and just might help support actions to stop the destruction of it habitat.

Tim also captured the other part of the indonesian eco-system which cover the aquatic , terrestrial and dendritic animals lives.

Sometimes known as the gardeners of the forest, Bornean orang-utans are highly intelligent. Like humans, they exhibit culture, with different groups displaying unique behaviours and traditions. Orang-utans in Borneo have been seen using leaves as napkins to wipe their chins, building sun shades above their nests and even crafting umbrellas to stay dry in the tropical downpours.

Tim is a field biologist and wildlife photojournalist with a reputation for returning from the wild with shots of nearly impossible subjects. His pioneering research in the rainforest canopy led to a PhD from Harvard University and the first of many articles for National Geographic magazine. His work has garnered numerous awards, including many in Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

 

 

Around the world with cities Geometries ; can you spot your city ?

Photographer Benjamin Grant has set off on a mission to change the way we see our planet with his stunning photo project

Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire.

From our line of sight on the earth’s surface, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We believe that beholding these forces as they shape our Earth is necessary to make progress in understanding who we are as a species, and what is needed to sustain a safe and healthy planet.

As a result, the Overviews (what we call these images) focus on the places and moments where human activity—for better or for worse—has shaped the landscape. Each Overview starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.

The mesmerizing flatness seen from this vantage point, the surprising comfort of systematic organization on a massive scale, or the vibrant colors that we capture will hopefully turn your head. However, once we have that attention, we hope you will go beyond the aesthetics, contemplate just exactly what it is that you’re seeing, and consider what that means for our planet.The results are so amazing, Grant has even put together a book of over 200 high-resolution satellite photographs. It’s titled “Overview: A New Perspective of Earth”, and can be purchased through Amazon.

ITALY

The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort. The rationale for this construction was that an attack on any individual wall could be defended from the two adjacent star points by shooting the enemy from behind. The three rings that surround Palmanova were completed in 1593, 1690, and 1813.

Washington DC , USA

The urban plan for Washington, D.C. – the L’Enfant Plan – was developed in 1791 by Major Pierre Charles L’Enfant for George Washington, the first President of the United States. L’Enfant designed a compass-aligned grid for the city’s streets, with intersecting diagonal avenues that were later named after the states of the union. The diagonal avenues also intersect with the north-south and east-west streets at circles and rectangular plazas in order to create more open, green spaces. Lastly, L’Enfant laid out a 400 foot-wide (122 meter) garden-lined “grand avenue” – what is now know as the National Mall – that connects the US Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial (the latter two are visible at right in this Overview).

Full size LEGO Vehicles on the streets of Italy

There is little shortage of  iconic arts in Rome. But Italian photographer ,Domenico Franco adds a modern twist to year of art history on the street of the eternal city. For this project, he had spent sometime digitally assembling life-size LEGO replicas of Italian transport vehicles , and imprinting them near strategic locations- of both cultural and historical significance – in and around the city of Rome.

integrated larger-than-life LEGO lamborghinis, helicopters, tractor trailers, and camper vans making their way through the italian capital’s cobblestone roads and parking in front of the world’s most famous architectural landmarks. ON the idea behind the project , Franco had said :

‘his aim is to transform ordinary contexts in extraordinary ones, compelling the toys to get out of the idyllic and politically correct landscapes belonging to their perfect and idealistic cities, with the result of instilling in them those vices, virtues and desires typical of human beings.’

  Franco calls this project  ‘LEGO outside LEGOLAND’  because  , as the theme suggest ,he had hoped to take Lego ( a brick and , building toy ) out of the its normal melieu into “real society” .  containing a series of nine lego-vehicles , placed on different location ; on cobbled streets , around the colosseum , and on the junction of a busy Italian street

He does offers printout of the photographs for sale on his site here.

We compared the Human Eyes against other Animals. The result will shock you.

Have you ever wondered what you look like in the eyes of your dog? Or even how a bee sees the world? The vision of every kind of animal on Earth is unique, and some can even see what we can’t. We at ausquerry  decided to show you how different animals see the world around them. crawling the web for pictures between the way some pets see the world and us.

#1 Dogs

downloads1

                                                                         Dogs                                      Human                               

Dogs have poor vision; their eyes aren’t sensitive to a majority of colors, and they see the world in a somewhat faded way. On the other hand, they can see very well at night. They have a well-developed sense of perspective and depth, and their eyes are more sensitive to movement.

#2  Fish

downloads2                       Fishes                                                                                                  Human

Your ordinary tank-dwelling fish can see in ultraviolet, and everything in close proximity is magnified. That’s probably why so many fish look surprised all the time.

#3 Snakes

Snakes generally have poor vision, but they can see thermal radiation at night ten times better than any modern infrared technology. During the day, however, they only react to movement — if their prey doesn’t move, they won’t catch it.

#4 Mice and rats

                                                          Animals                                                                    Humans

Each of a mouse’s eyes moves independently, so they see two separate pictures. The world for them is blurred, slow-moving, and tinged a blue-green color.

#5 Cows

                                            Animals                                                                          Humans

For roaming cows, their pastures aren’t green but appear orange and red. But they do see everything slightly magnified.

#6 Horses

A horse’s eyes are positioned on the side of its head. This helps warn them of any danger. But this also has its disadvantages: these animals never see what’s right in front of their noses.

#7 Bees

                                                          Animals                                                                  Humans

Bees comprehend the world three times faster than humans do. They also see ultraviolet rays that we’re unable to.

#8 Flies

                                                      Animals                                                                   Humans

Flies have faceted vision. This can be comprehended in terms of having thousands of tiny eyes that work together to create one image. They can see ultraviolet rays, and the world moves somewhat slower for them compared to humans.

#9 Sharks

                                             Animals                                                                        Humans

Underwater predators such as sharks can’t see any colors, but their vision underwater is much sharper than ours.

#10  Chameleons

                                             Animals                                                                             Humans

Chameleons are interesting creatures not only because of their appearance but also because their eyes can move independently of each other. This gives them 360º vision.

#11 Night geckos

                                                     Animals                                                                  Humans

These lizards have true night vision. They can see 350 times better at night than humans can.

#12 Butterflies

                                                     Animals                                                          Humans

Butterflies are amazing insects. Their vision isn’t very sharp, but they can see many more colors and shades than human beings can, including ultraviolet light.

Got Old Books ? They can get new lives as home utilities .

Any Engineer would tell you , the most efficient ways of recycling paper are either leave it degrade or to incinerated it.  But now Artists and designers are  finding innovative ways to re-purpose old paper and books that may no longer be relevant. So far, we’ve seen books transformed into Japanese lanterns, sculptures and even mini-houses cut entirely from vintage books you can now  add tableware to that list.

After experimenting with three-dimensional paper objects started in 2009, this  formerly Swedish graphic designer and bookbinder Cecilia Levy  now works full time as an dependant art creator; re-purposing old paper materials into intricate and stunting art works.

ausquerry3She is hard to come by as she is always on the road planning and participating  in solo and group exhibitions in Sweden and abroad; working with public art assignments and holding workshops.

Cecilia Levy creates exquisite paper plates, bowls and natural forms using small pieces of paper taken from comic books and vintage volumes. Her art work are of an exquisite variant as they range from coloured bowls to flower bulbs to tea cups.

 


ausquerry4Levy focus on the inherent delicacy of paper, and leaves the original stains and discolourations of the sheets on her works as a testament to her starting material history.  Her objects are created using papier-mâché techniques, and are not varnished afterwards, to retain the emphasis on the paper itself.

Ephemeral and exquisitely made, Levy’s paper art gently evokes a sense of magic and wonder that only handmade objects can inspire, while giving new meaning to books that may otherwise have gone to waste. For more information, visit her website.

Monsters are Appearing in New York City; And Everyone is wondering why.

Monsters are appear in and around the subway in new York city to help New Yorkers deal with the ever rising stresses of their daily commutes.  Its no news how tough the New York subway is, the trains are grossly overcrowded, noise from both the trains and the conductors are hard to enjoy and the  unsavoury stench of the carts is a enough  reason for a weak stomach to puck.

But despite the chaos, many New Yorkers take it daily; to and fro from work. And most have found ways of dealing with the nasty bits of the journey., either staring at their smart-phones, sleeping , listening to music or reading a book.

The monsters are a way of lifting the mood  and bighting the commute. And they are the works of Ben Rubin from the design outfit Subwaydoodle

Ben captures the heart of the city with his doodle , its people , and their ways of dealing with the stress in the subways of New York . From compromising positions of sleeping with a friendly monster close by tucking in , to ride on the back of a train cart.  He sketch out demons , clowns and trolls  making mockery of people’s attempt at escapism.

Ben draws each of the characters using just  his iPad and  the procreate app. The figures are carefully pictured in various subway scenes, peeking over peoples’ shoulders as they read a book, cuddling with them as they nap, and eerily looming nearby as they innocently gaze out the window. ‘subway doodle’ catalogs the time spent drawing on Ben’s daily commute, where he imagines the humorous and seamless integration of city ‘monsters’ riding the subway .

Although h sells his doodle, he doesn’t offer personal commission . All the doodles are on his Mac Air 2 using Procreate, he recommends A cheap $8 stylus. If you want to doodle like he does.
