brainfreeze is my favorite pain response because it’s literally your body telling you to stop eating fucking snow, you stupid jackass, what is wrong with you
I love the design of Black Velvetopia. It makes me feel relaxed and comfortable probably because of how dark it is with those lovely fluorescent colors everywhere. It’s one of the many video game locations I’d like to live in. uvu

Photographer Kevin Twomey has a fascination with capturing complex objects in the most simple of compositions, and his series Low Tech is the epitome of this. The series features photos of old, mechanical calculators stripped bare, exposing the exquisitely complicated creations that they were from the inside out.
Similar to the advancements of cameras, calculators have evolved from a purely mechanical piece of machinery to digital gadgets that are now almost small enough to hide behind a silver dollar. Regardless of how large and cumbersome those old mechanic calculators were though, there is a certain beauty in the various designs that shows off their seemingly infinite intricacies.
The calculators themselves weren’t the only intricate aspect of this series though. To ensure he captured every motor, key and spring, Twomey took multiple shots of each composition and focus-stacked them using Helicon Focus. The results, as you can see below, are fascinating from top to bottom.
