Hyperrealistic Portraits by Arinze Stanley
This is truly insane art. These hyperrealistic portraits are actually made using graphite and charcoal. In other words, these are drawings and not photographs.

When an Airforce One photo shoot caused panic in New York
Airforce One is the official plane of the United States President and all the way back in 2009 someone thought it would be a good and cool idea to take it for spin above New York City for a photo shoot.
The world's most recognizable plane with the world's most recognizable skyline behind it, what could possibly go wrong?
Well, the people of NYC did not know about the photo shoot, so when they saw a 747 flying extremely low and making sharp turns, many a mind went back to that horrible day of September 11th 2001.
But hey, a cool photo was had.

The Beautiful Lisbon Store Fronts by Sebastian Erras
I visited Lisbon in December and it is a beautiful city. Loads of bars, cafés and restaurants that serve up a huge variety of foods. Amazing scenery, some great cultural and historical places and most of the time the weather is gorgeous. Even the shopping is quite refreshing as yes, there are big brand stores, but there are still plenty of independently owned shops about and the owners put great effort into preserving the stores they own. This results in some lovely store fronts that just invite you inside.
One tip though, bring some good walking shoes as Lisbon is built on seven hills.

Ruins of the Soviet Army
Back in the day, and I mean way back in the day, the Soviet Army was a thing that was feared in the West. Hundreds of thousands of T-72 tanks had their guns pointed towards Berlin, Paris and London. Tens of thousands of MiG fighters were ready to take to the skies and hundreds of ballistic missiles were ready to fly into orbit at the push of a button.
It seems 2017 is bringing those days closer then ever, but unless war actually breaks out the likelihood that Russia's current military machines and buildings will end up as these shown in Danila Tkachenko's series Restricted Access is rather big.

The Apollo 11 Saturn V launch in gorgeous 500fps
Calling all space buffs. Way back in the 60's and 70's we actually went space places as a human race. The launch of the Apollo 11 Saturn V mission was filmed in gorgeous 500fps.
Just totally cool.
