What would it look like to travel through a wormhole? Maybe a little bit like this new photo series from Randy Scott Slavin.

Stunning images of the endless buildings and skies of Hong Kong

Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French photographer who loves Hong Kong. These stunning photos are from his latest book, Vertical Horizon, "a deep immersion into the city's thick atmospheres and a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment."

Stunning photos of Lick Observatory by Laurie Hatch

It may look like a movie frame showing an Evil Mad Scientist lair, but it's just a one-minute exposure photograph of Lick Observatory, as seen from Kepler Peak. It's part of a series of outstanding shots of this beautiful place by Laurie Hatch. I asked Laurie to tell us about herself and show us her work. » 2/06/14 4:52pm 2/06/14 4:52pm

Alien monsters or awesome spiders, I just love these little guys

I can't stop looking at the extraordinary photos by Thomas Shahan, an Oregon-based artist and microphotographer who creates amazing portraits of arthropods, including these awesome jumping spiders.

An abandoned veterinary school looks like the most terrifying place

Old mental institutions. Haunted houses. Cemeteries at night. Clown conventions. They're all terrifying. But I'm pretty sure I'd rather sleep overnight in those places than spend a single minute in this abandoned veterinary school. At this horrifying school you see animal heads trapped in formaldehyde, organs floating… » 1/22/14 7:31pm 1/22/14 7:31pm

Fantastic aerial photos of Botswana make me wish I was there right now

Brooklyn-based photographer Zack Seckler took to the skies over Botswana in an ultra, ultra, ultra-light aircraft to take these incredible pics of native wildlife doing its collective thang.

Stunning photos of colossal lightning in massive volcano eruption

You don't need to travel into a brown dwarf star's atmosphere or Saturn's hexagon to see colossal lightning. Just look at these photographs taken by Francisco Negroni of the eruption of the complex volcano Cordón Caulle, in Chile. He told me that, while scary, there was no immediate danger: » 1/15/14 9:40am 1/15/14 9:40am

Star Wars toys photos look more realistic than the real Star Wars

I love the work of Finnish artist Vesa Lehtimäki aka Avanaut, a brilliant illustrator and photographer who likes to take pictures of his kids' toys in his spare time. Check out these series of Star Wars toys set in the real world. Some of them look so real that you may think he actually build 1:1 reproductions of the… » 1/11/14 4:20pm 1/11/14 4:20pm

These awesome images from another dimension have not been photoshopped

These are the amazing light paintings of Tackyshack, who is really taking this art form to a complete new level. Some of the amazing images in this small collection of his work are crazy psychedelia. Other look like Alice in Wonderland landscapes. And the one above—playing with shadows and subtle abstract shapes—looks… » 12/19/13 2:58pm 12/19/13 2:58pm
