30,000 LED Lights Make Budapest’s Public Transportation Look Like Awesome Time Machines

I wish they did this in every city. Can you imagine how magical it would be at night?

Every year during the winter holidays, something very special happens in Budapest, Hungary…

Local streetcars get decked out in thousands of blue and white twinkling LED lights!

Over 30,000 lights are used to turn ordinary trams into dazzling vehicles that travel through the streets spreading holiday joy to everyone.

The tradition began in 2009 by the Budapest Transport Company, making it a fun way for locals and tourists to get around the city while celebrating the holidays.

Each tram is lit up in the evening from 4pm, starting from early December until January.

The greatest part about these trams is that a ride on them doesn’t cost anymore than a regular fare.

Each tram looks like a time-traveling chariot with its spectacular lighting…

And it’s hard not to stand in awe of these glowing trams as they chug along right before your eyes.

It’s just a small way this city celebrates the holiday season while putting a smile on the faces of many!

It’s still only June—we all still have enough time to save up for a trip to Budapest for the end-of-year holidays!

Natural surrealism: the paintings of
Moki Mioke

11TH AUGUST 2014 / ADMIN

Moki Mioke is a German artist whose incredible nature pieces reveal a deep, personal, and quite surreal (!) connection between humans and their environments, meshing the worlds of clever portraiture and detailed landscapes into one seamless work. Many of Mioke’s subjects are hardly distinguishable from their environments, and she is able to create a deep and thoughtful message by interspersing the two. Never more have we wanted to snuggle under a bed of rock or the trunk of tree, or to be ‘tucked in’ by ocean waves.

Check out more of her work here: http://www.mioke.de/

Incredibly Intricate Hand-Cut Paper Art By Maude White

Incredibly enough, White works by hand, using a craft knife to cut tiny lines and draw images with the paper’s empty negative space. “I have great respect for paper. When I cut, the thin membranous material reveals its strength to me,” the artist explains on her website. “Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries.

White is also the owner of the Brave Bird Paperwork And Jewelry company, so she does more than just cut out amazing paper illustrations. She sells her cuttings, as well as felt jewelry and other artworks, in  her online shop.

The Mysterious Moeraki Boulders

Standard

The Mysterious Moeraki Boulders

If you go down to Koekohe beach in New Zealand you can be sure of a big surprise. In front of you, scattered like enormous marbles from some long abandoned game between giants, are hundreds of giant spherical rocks. Or are they the egg shells of sea-born dragons? The Moeraki boulders present us with a mystery – what are they and how on earth did they get there?

Some are isolated but may occur in clusters. That they are here is the result of three things – erosion, concretion and time. First the waves, inexorable and patient, have pounded the local bedrock for countless millennia. The mudstone on the beach – rock which was originally mud and clay – is slowly but surely eroded. Underneath are the boulders that the mudstone – in its original wet form, helped to form. However, the boulders were not there to begin with – that came later.

Many of the Moeraki boulders give the impression of being completely spherical – and they almost are. They are septarian concretions – a sedimentary rock that has had the space between its individual grains filled up by minerals which acted like cement. Concretions form inside the layers of mud and clay and are not, as some think, boulders buried over time.

They do, however, tend to form early on in the history of the deposited sediment – it is thought they occur before the rest hardens in to rock. A consequence of concretion is that the resulting boulders are more resistant to the weathering effects of the element. So, when the rest of the sedimentary layers is eroded, the boulder (eventually) appears.

What is significant about these concretions is their size. They are big. While not unique on the planet, some of them are up to a meter in diameter but the majority range from 1.5 to 2.2 meters – that is almost seven feet in diameter. Most of them are almost perfect spheres.

The material responsible for their concretion is a carbonate mineral called calcite. In the center the concretion is sometimes quite weak (perhaps the opposite we might expect) but the exterior is usually the hardest part being made up of sometimes 20% calcite. Not only has the calcite concreted the boulder’s clay and silt – it has replaced a lot of it too.

There are large cracks on the boulders and these are known as septaria. The center of each boulder is hollow and the septaria radiate from there. It is not really known what causes these septaria but they can be filled up by several layers of calcite themselves and sometimes an extremely thin layer of quartz.

The Moeraki boulders date from the Paleocene epoch which translates as the early recent. In geological terms that may well be true, but that means that the boulders are at least fifty six million years old. Our own mammalian ancestors during that epoch were mostly small and rodent like until late on.

As you can imagine, there are many Māori legends concerning these hollow boulders. One says that they are eel baskets that came ashore when a large canoe was sunk. The reality is perhaps stranger than the legend. Yet whenever they get visitors, there always has to be one!

15 Unusual Animal Friendships That Will Melt Your Heart

COOL ANIMAL FRIENDS

unusual-animal-friendship-3-1

What does your best friend look like? Perhaps you count your dog or cat among your best friends. Animals are big hearted creatures that make the most loyal friends. Not only do animals get along with us 2-legged humans, but they have a knack for getting along with just about anyone, or rather any species.

They say opposites attract, and that saying couldn’t be any more true when it comes to some of the most unusual animal friendships. Even natural predators can come together, realizing that together things are so much better!

These 15 unusual animal friendships are so adorable you won’t believe your eyes!

1. Bubbles The Elephant & Bella The Dog

Bubbles is an African elephant that was rescued from poachers and now lives at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina. When Bubbles first arrived she was only 300 pounds, she has since ballooned to 9,000 pounds. Regardless of her size, she likes to keep her friends on the lighter side. It wasn’t until a river was added to Bubble’s home that she met a black Labrador named Bella. The two became fast friends, now they are inseparable. They even play fetch together, with Bubbles throwing and Bella catching–as most dogs LOVE to do. My dogs are jelouse, they want an elephant friend now.

ISOLA TIBERINA-A BEAUTIFUL PLACE

Did you know there was an island right in the middle of Rome? It has quite an enchanting history.

Legends abound regarding Isola Tiberina’s origins — the most common one holds thatthe ancient Romans summoned it into existence when they threw the crops of their evil ruler, Tarquin the Proud, into the Tiber River.

Isola Tiberina is the world’s smallest inhabited island — to get there, you’ll crossRome’s oldest original bridge, not far from Capitoline Hill. The island, while cute to stroll around, is also home to a tenth-century basilica, fully operational hospital and annual film fest that will have any modern movie junkie totally enamored.

Isola Tiberina is about three football fields long. On your visit, you can explore its shores or tour the basilica, which houses relics from Catholic martyrs chewed by lions in the nearby Colosseum.

Built atop an ancient temple, the church incorporates the temple’s columns into its interior design.

While on Isola Tiberina, you might also attend a mass or glimpse the island hospital, built more than 400 years ago and still working today. There’s even a little restaurantdishing up authentic pastas and meats.

The highlight of Isola Tiberina is the annual film fest, held every summer. Hundreds of guests pack into the island’s outdoor amphitheater, with Rome’s oldest bridge in plain view. Catch a screening of films from all over while you’re there, on an island millennia older than America itself.

Ciao, Isola Tiberina!

How This Young Photographer Followed His Dreams And Found Success

Standard

A YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER FOLLOWS HIS DREAMS

Thompson was a shy boy from the suburbs of Chicago who went to college and had a job as pizza delivery boy. Not a full year later, however, Kyle became a recognized and desired young photographer with a distinct style whose work created a huge buzz on the Internet. [Read more...]

At 19, Kyle dropped out of college to pursue his dream to do something artistic.

At first, he doubted if he could survive as an artist and planned on settling with psychology or advertising.

But artistic genius took over. Kyle quit his job and started focusing on improving his technique as he didn’t have any formal education in photography.

In December 2011 he started a 365 days project and has been taking a self-portrait everyday since.

Abandoned houses were the first inspirational spots. As Kyle says, he enjoys their juxtaposition – they’re both empty of life but full of memories.

Simple props are used for his photos – this shot features desk lamps hooked to a chair and a fog machine.

He gets creative with anything that’s around, even flour or sand.

Kyle describes his style as surreal conceptual photography.

He feels that art is very personal and self-portraiture is the best medium to express himself.

Though shot in the suburbs of Chicago, Kyle’s images construct a separate dream-like reality.

He always sketches the concepts and then pre-plans the photoshoot carefully.

His photos have that feeling of emptiness as almost all of them feature one person alone in the vast surroundings.

Kyle’s dream location is a ghost town, maybe Pripyat in Ukraine.

Photographer’s sacrifice: for a good shot Kyle’s willing to soak in freezing mud or set his clothes on fire.

Young photographer has big life plans – from making a photo book and a movie to teaching photography workshops.
