These naughty necklaces by Japanese designer, Takayuki Fukusawa, are tiny figurines diving into women’s breast and if you think they’re ridiculous, or better yet, ridiculously funny, well, he has accomplished his goal of being not only a unique designer but one with a unique sense of humour!
Takayuki designs are all about creating humour and uniqueness and the 30-year-old designer has even started a campfire campaign (the equivalent of Kickstarter), to raise funds - 400,000 yen (about $4,000) for his naughty designs.
Some are eerie, some are unique while others are just plain awesome.
Animated photos or animated photography (or cinemagraph), is a new form of visual art that is a mix between photography and video.
Capturing the micro-movements of living people and objects into eternal loops creates an illusion of extremely life-like experience. The viewer is magnetically enchanted and feels the presence of the subject that was never possible with static photography.
So I was out relaxing on the back patio the other day, enjoying a beer, (I'm still searching for one I really like, by the way), when suddenly I heard ruffling in the trees and tiny leaves or something falling from it. After a few minutes of intensely watching the trees, I realized it was some squirrels. Of course! What else could it have been?
I haven't seen them for so long - since the weather got warmer actually, so I totally forgot about them. But as you all know, I love taking pictures of them so I ran back inside to grab my camera and started shooting away.
It was hard to spot them at first but if you look closely, you will see them. Whatever they were eating, they were sure enjoying it and it was also so fascinating to see how adept they were at eating upside down. Oh! Check out the animation also that was created by Google+ way down below.
I'm sure you guys have seen these images floating around all over the net so I had to include it in "MY VIRALS". They call this 'phenomenon', doppelganger. I wonder who my past doppelganger was and who it is today. Hmmm...
1. Peter Dinklage… and Diego Velazquez’s “Portrait of Sebastián de Morra”
Doppelganger is always a fascinating subject. It makes you wonder if there is a parallel universe and if time travel is really real and even more scary and intriguing – who was or is your doppelganger. Doppelganger are said to be either the spiritual doubles of a person or their downright evil twin. And they don’t have to be of the same sex either as you’ll see in a few of the photos.
The Doppelganger comes from the German word Doppel (double) and Gänger (walker) . The singular and plural forms are the same but English folks tend to add the ‘s’ on the end to show the plural form.
Some of these photos I've seen many times viralling around the web but others were new to me. Either way, it's fascinating to see these celebrity doubles.
Have you heard about the black chicken? No I mean the really, really black chicken. Not only is it so black but it's black from head to toe, inside and out!
Talk about dark meat!
These rarely kept bred of chickens are called the Ayam Cemani chickens, (Ayam meaning “chicken” in Indonesian and Cemani - “completely black” in Javanese), which originated from the island of Java, Indonesia. Dutch breeder, Jan Steverink first imported it into Europe in 1998 and there are stocks that are currently kept in the Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia. There is also several varieties one of which includes the Swedish Black Chicken.
Check out these photos of a grizzly bear salmon hunting in Kamchatka, Russia. I can't believe this guy was able to get that close to one.
They say grizzly bears are usually peaceful animals who mostly prefer vegetarian food, but during the salmon spawning season, even they like to indulge every once in awhile.
Michel Roggo, who you will see further down below among the photos, tried to watch the body language of the bears to see if they do not mind its presence and it seems to me they didn't. Well not this one anyways.
Wow. I wish I was able to take photos like these with my camera! I found this incredibly fascinating that I had to share!
WELCOME! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

We have many blogs here at MFS.. this is my personal one.
Well not quite. But I can pretend can't I?
I love playing around with my camera. On this day, I took various shots from different angles of a single plant in a hanging flower pot to create the illusion of flowers in my garden...
