1942, New York– Original caption: And it’s off to work goes Salvador Dali. His method of going to work is not that of the ordinary mortal. He lies on a perfumed couch in his studio with a handful of pencils. Perfume is then dropped on his eyelids to influence the character of his dreams, for dreams are the stuff of which surrealism is made. (via)

Can you believe the landscape photos above are actually pictures from an aquarium? Kim Keever builds small-scale dioramas that simulate tropical environments in her amazing series, Hawaii.

In an interview with Faith is Torment, Kim explains:

What makes these dioramas unusual is that they are created in a 200 gallon tank filled with water. Though I sometimes build a scene in front of and behind the tank, most of the “action” takes place in the tank with paint injected into the water for cloud formations. I use whatever materials I can find on the street, in stores and on the internet that might add to a perception of reality that is not quite what it seems.

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:

  • *Man walks into a store and finds employee*
  • Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
  • Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
  • Man: I never filled out an application.
  • Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
  • Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
  • Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
  • Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
  • Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
  • Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
  • Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
  • Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
  • Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
  • Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
  • Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
  • Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
  • Employee:
  • Man:
  • Employee:
  • Man: Fuck you, slut.

How Street Photography Can Turn into Astrophotography

In his Planet Universe series, Adam Kennedy uses a little editing to transform rusty old fire hydrants into his own celestial bodies. 

We asked Adam about his process. Here’s what he told us!

I normally just photograph the rusty hydrant from several different angles, because many times I can make two to three planets from one.
I try to let each hydrant guide the process, because the thing that makes the planets interesting is the idea that they are reflections of natural processes on earth, making use of digital manipulation simply to highlight that fact.
I have tried this process with many objects other than fire hydrants, but they often do not work very nicely. For example many wooden banisters have round wooden tops, but the rusty metal orbs are just so perfect because there are such clearly defined areas for the land and sea.
The fact that the darker rusty regions lend themselves to deep blue oceans makes me feel fortunate that this city (San Francisco) has such peculiar fire hydrants, and what would seem to be a shortage of white paint.
