The Garage

The Garage

This is my garage. Well, it's an old warehouse near where I live but I like to call it Garage. It's a nice roomy place to build stuff.

There's my '64 Ford Fairlane, a classic! I've had it for a long, long time. It doesn't run, though, something to do with the carburetor, I haven't had the time to fix it. There's also that old Opel truck. It doesn't run either, it was there when I bought the place.

What else, let's see... Oh, there's also my X-wing fighter. That runs pretty well. My favourite ride. The engines just needs some tlc from time to time.

This photograph is a homage to Michael Paul Smith and his new Elgin Park book. If you get the chance to read the book, please do, it's pure gold not for just toyphotographers but photographers in general.

The model cars in this photograph are not Danbury Mint or Franklin Mint model cars, like in Michael's photographs. These are 1/24 plastic models I've built long ago. I dug them up from a cupboard of old junk, the dust on the cars is genuine shelf dust and all I had to do was just place them next to the X-wing.

The X-wing is a model I've built too, it's new, finished it just last week. You're going to see more of that soon, I'm afraid. :D

The Life in Silicon Valley During the Digital Revolution

by Donnia

Doug Menuez est le photographe à l’origine du livre-documentaire Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley 1985-2000, édité récemment chez Atria Books. De 1985 à 2000, Steve Jobs et d’autres ingénieurs ont invité Menuez dans le lieu où opérait la Révolution Numérique : la Silicon Valley. Durant toutes ces années, ce photographe a capturé les portraits de grands innovateurs de notre temps, dans des moments de doutes, de crises et de joies profondes.

Technology sector, share of market over time

by Nathan Yau

Technology sector over time

Here's a straightforward stacked area chart from the Economist that shows shifting market share in the technology sector. It highlights the quick shrinkage of IBM in the 1990s, Microsoft reign soon after, and the apple surge mid-2000s. Be sure to look at the nominal and real views too, because even though relative dominance shifted, the sector as a whole is up and up.

A Bolder Bose Speaker

by Troy Turner


Bose knows when it comes to high-quality home audio. To reflect the brand’s solid, powerful identity, the Robust speaker’s chunky aesthetic makes a bold statement. Bulky, yes… but it’s also minimal with a sleek and attractive touch-sensitive forward-facing control panel. Cover color options add flair and allow the user to customize their look in a number of vibrant hues.

Designer: Kim Seungwoo

Farewell old friend, you served well.

Aerial Cavalrymen of 6th Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), fly all 30 of the squadrons’ Observational Helicopter-58D Kiowa Warriors in formation over Fort Drum, N.Y. and surrounding areas. After more than 20 years at the installation, the OH-58D will be retired after a final flight July 28, 2015, as a part of the Army’s Aviation Restructure Initiative, which will replace the Kiowa Warriors with a combination of Attack-Helicopter 64 Apaches and unmanned aerial vehicles.

ULTRADISTANCIA is a fine art photographic work who uses Google Earths imagery to play with the way we see our planet from above, taking infinite tours over the earth to the encounter of geometries, shapes and topographies, natural and humans creations. ULTRADISTANCIA is a project about perception and a celebration of the multiple forms that photography can take, through the lens of a camera or through the screen of a computer. How we see what are we seeing will let us understand why we see the way we are seeing. .

Rising China Video

David Pelaez

Watch the video:

Après 20 jours de voyage et plus de 15 000 km parcourus, District7media nous offre une vidéo époustouflante dévoilant toute la beauté de la Chine. Un rendu aérien principalement réalisé grâce à l’utilisation d’un drone, permettant ainsi de montrer toute la splendeur des lieux visités, et ce malgré des obstacles comme une météo plus que capricieuse. Des montagnes aux différents temples en passant par la Grande Muraille, chaque image devient une invitation au voyage.

theenergyissue: Altaeros Energies’ Buoyant Wind Turbine (BAT)...


Altaeros Energies’ Buoyant Wind Turbine (BAT) Floats in the Sky

The Buoyant Wind Turbine (BAT) is designed to take advantage of high altitude winds, which are often five times greater than those found at typical wind turbine heights. Composed of an inflatable helium shell with stabilizing fins and turbine in the middle, the BAT also has the advantage of being quickly deployable, making it a potential power source for remote areas and emergency zones. The BAT, which would float about 1,000 ft. above the landscape, also addresses the noise and aesthetic concerns commonly lobbed at wind turbines. A strong cable tethers the turbine to the ground and also acts as the conduit through which electricity flows.

Ascent in the Tour de France

by Nathan Yau

Tour de France wideview

I was flipping through the channels the other night and happened on the Tour de France. It's cycling, in case you're unfamiliar, and it's not the most interesting sport to watch. But when you get a sense of what these athletes are actually doing — how fast they ride, how high they climb — it's a whole lot more impressive.

The Guardian put together a wide view of one of the major climbs, up Alpe d'Huez, to help you see. My legs are tired just thinking about it.

Light Calligraphy Around the World

by Léa

L’artiste français Julien Breton (aka Kaalam) utilise la technique du light painting pour créer des oeuvres de Light Calligraphy un peu partout dans le Monde : en Inde, en France, au Maroc ou encore à New York. Ses créations dont les messages sont parfois écrits en Arabe, en Français ou dans une calligraphie abstraite, rendent hommage à la liberté, la fraternité, la beauté, la spiritualité.
