“The ‘ideal gothic beauty’ of being pale comes from this sense of otherness. When mainstream de mode is tanned beach babe, the pale contrast is taken up as the signifier of an Other that defensively puffs itself up. The problem is that it’s a microcosm that doesn’t necessary carry the sense of self-awareness to realize that it’s also othering people.”
Ghost Train by Jeff Friesen.
Young and talented photographer Jeff Friesen just completed a photography project called “The Canadian: Ghost Train Crossing Canada” that involves a train’s journey across Canada but with an unexpected twist. “I carry the train rather than it carrying me. It fits into a shopping bag.” The unique series shows us the vast, diverse and beautiful landscapes of Canada in a sweet and enchanting way. At first glance you will be sure that you’re looking at an actual, real-life train. But in fact we’re invited to imagine what small and mysterious creatures could possibly be enjoying such a wonderfully scenic trip. Enjoy!
NASA spacecraft captures breathtaking new view of Saturn
NASA’s Casini spacecraft has caught a rare glimpse of Saturn in near-perfect conditions for one of the first times in its eight years orbiting the ringed planet.
The image shows the gas giant in “high solar phase” — a point in the planet’s shadow with the sun completely obscured.
“Of all the many glorious images we have received from Saturn, none are more strikingly unusual than those taken from Saturn’s shadow,” Carolyn Porco, head of Cassini’s imaging team in Boulder, Colo., said in a release. (NASA)
APOD: Orion over El Castillo
Explanation: Welcome to the December solstice, a day the world does not end … even according to the Mayan Calendar. To celebrate, consider this dramatic picture of Orion rising over El Castillo, the central pyramid at Chichén Itzá, one of the great Mayan centers on the Yucatán peninsula. Also known as the Temple of Kukulkan it stands 30 meters tall and 55 meters wide at the base. Built up as a series of square terraces by the pre-Columbian civilization between the 9th and 12th century, the structure can be used as a calendar and is noted for astronomical alignments. In fact, the Mayans were accomplished astronomers and mathematicians, accurately using the cyclic motions of the stars, Sun, Moon, and planets to measure time and construct calendars. Peering through clouds in this night skyscape, stars in the modern constellation Orion the Hunter represented a turtle in the Mayan sky. Tak sáamal.
From the Department of Awesome Once-In-A-Lifetime Photo Ops come these incredible shots of a mighty Golden Eagle wielding a knife. Yep, that’s pretty freaking awesome.
“A forgetful photographer had the shock of his life when this soaring golden eagle made off with his knife. Dutch snapper Han Bouwmeester had been using the utensil, in Västerbotten, Sweden, to carve up chunks of meat in a bid to attract the birds of prey.
But, busy with the task in hand, the wildlife aficionado clumsily dropped it in the snow. He said: ‘Once it flew away in the sight of my camera I saw something red in his claws and made some shots of it. On the display from my camera I saw immediately that it was the knife we used to cut the meat. We surely left it in the snow.’
‘At such a moment we were firstly enraged with ourselves because this was a fault. But he soon dropped the knife after realising it was useless for him. I was happy with the absolutely cracking and unique picture. The eagle is holding it exactly as we should do with it. What a crazy once in a lifetime moment this was.’”
Eagles have learnt how to wield knives in a tactical-offense strategy and will soon take over the world by force…
