The eyes of animals look a lot like alien worlds

Continuing his fantastic series of macro shots of the eyes of animals, here is Suren Manvelyan's Animal Eyes 3. The close up shots of the fish and reptiles and other animals in this series look positively alien when seen up close.

These unreal burgers may be inedible but I want to eat them all anyway

I've been craving a good burger lately and looking at these fantastic burger pictures from Fat & Furious is not helping me at all.

It doesn't matter: I would like a bite of every single one of… » 8/07/14 9:08pm 8/07/14 9:08pm

This alien world is not a frame from Guardians of the Galaxy

This isn't a Cassini photo of a Saturn moon against an asteroids field or a frame from Guardians of the Galaxy. This beautiful alien landscape is right here on Earth, a microscopic world hidden inside a gemstone, photographed by Danny J. Sanchez.

This is how New York would look submerged in a gigantic latte

Flóra Borsi is fascinated by the beauty of coffee. And so she made this stunning series of pictures where New York City skies are dyed with coffee and the clouds are made of cappuccino foam.

I can't wait to see what the future of video games will bring next. » 7/25/14 9:42pm 7/25/14 9:42pm
