The most ubiquitous photo in computer history wasn’t Photoshopped - but it sure does look different now. 

"It was taken near my home, north of San Francisco," photographer Charles O’Rear says in the video. "It’s the real deal. It wasn’t Photoshopped. What you see is what you get."

While driving on Highway 121 in California, the former National Geographic photographer decided to slip off the highway and take the shot. Years later, Microsoft paid him a handsome (undisclosed) sum for his sincere landscape.

Never would have guessed.

Alex MacLean is used to seeing the world from up high. The photographer is also a licensed pilot, and he’s spent years “sticking his camera out the cockpit” of a small Cessna 182, snapping what he sees below.

The result is an astounding photo essay that pits man-made civilization against nature, animals against industry, and humans against the forces that, from above, are clearly mightier than we’ll ever be.

Really puts things in perspective.

You might feel no sympathy for young bankers and the punishing hours they work. But you might want to pay attention, because their bad work habits could be contagious.

When bankers leave Wall Street mid-career for new gigs in consulting, media or other industries, they often take their taxing work practices with them

The ‘F*cking Tourist’ photo series by photographer Nicolas Demeersman will make you think twice about how you travel.

Demeersman explained how the concept was born in an email to The Huffington Post: “I was motivated by a man who refused me asking to take his portrait, which he answered: ‘Fuck off, I don’t want to end up in a postcard.’”

Demeersman’s series combines humor and gravity to shine light on a cultural practice that, while everyday and nearly ubiquitous, is a pretty ridiculous tradition when you think about it. The next time you’re abroad and ask to snap a picture of a local, imagine their intense desire to flip you off. You probably won’t be too off target.

The exposure of the self is not only your body; it’s also your space, where you live, what’s hanging on the wall.

Flower petals explode as if from a volcano over a town in Costa Rica because clearly this should have happened years ago everywhere.

Ukrainian artist inserts social media icons into Edward Hopper paintings. Would his lonely subjects have felt better with Twitter at their fingertips?

This would be where I would physically hug you if there were not the matter of the two screens. Please envision accordingly: leaned in, arms locked all the way around, a fair amount of squeeze, but *no* awkward back pats. Because who even does those.

You’re a swell gal, Cate.

Also this.
