Lomography - The colors of Chaos

A decade and a half after two Austrian students ran into the Russian 35 mm Lomo camera in Prague, and started spreading the Lomo gospel passionately, Lomography is now one of the most exciting niches in  artistic photography.

With their arty, dreamy textures, and warm, often distorted colors, Lomo photographs capture the hidden abstract and chaotic layers of reality. 

Natalie Zwillinger is a  renowned Lomographer who has won several prizes in major Lomo contests, and exhibits internationally. Her works reveal a wild, intimate, sensual point of view

Spell with flickr



Based on the Flickr API, Spell with flickr is a cool tool that takes letters and numbers of your choice and spells them out with various images from flickr. Don’t like one of the pictures? Click on it and another one will pop up. Spell with flickr also provides direct links to the original pictures on flickr. Cool thing, and, of course, a great way to teach your pet the alphabet.


The Face Transformer

From the Perception Laboratory at the University of St Andrews, Scotland comes The Face Transformer, a facial manipulation applet that is a blast to play with others. Upload your picture to this smart Java toy, and soon you'll go through radical age, gender and race metamorphosis. Just been dumped? Wipe away your tears, gal, and turn the jerk into an Ape Man. The Face Transformer can also make the faces you upload the subjects of beautiful virtual portraits "by" Botticelli, El Greco and Modigliani, or even hip Magna cartoons.

After exploring the fascinating history of various GUIs' co-evolution and demise, you can delve into Wichary's other obsession and visit his no longer updated, 150-page site dedicated to one(!)

Overheard in New York


Brooklyn chick #1: He's totally self-destructive.
Brooklyn chick #2: Yeah, I know, but so am I, just in a different way, ya know? I'm only self destructive to me, not to other people... wait, forget that I just said that.



This exchange, overheard on the New York F train, is a sample of the endless stream of weird, funny or hilariously silly real-life conversation fragments documented in Overheard in New York.

Based on submissions by sharp-eared New Yorkers, Overheard in New York offers an opportunity to learn about the human condition and laugh out loud at the same time. You may also want to check the sister site, Overheard in the Office for gems like this Louisville, Kentucky conversation snippet: Guy #1: Why did you only wash one hand? Guy #2: I only peed on one hand. Guy #1: You're an idiot.
