Her photographs are whimsical and magical. Danielle is probably inspired by the old-school photographs that have by now become a meme.

However, they are all for good fun and are made to lift people’s spirits up and so that the owners will have a unique memory of their pet.
Fascinated by music, movies and sitcoms, I’m passionate about social media and can’t live without the internet, especially for all the cute dog and cat pictures out there. I wish the day had about 40 hours to be able to do everything I want. Read more »

Collage has strengths that a simple photo doesn’t have. A simple photo can’t combine and connect visual meanings between different contexts as well as collage. Collages also open up an extra dimension of art by mixing two different images and “forcing” them to interact and create new meaning. In today’s post, the Turkish artist Semih, going by the name of selftasy on Instagram, showcases the versatility of the collage technique in his own way.
Here’s what he had to say to Bored Panda: “Hello, I am Semih from Turkey. I am an architect, also studying urban planning Ph.D currently. Far from academic, or professional activities, in my free zone, I’m making some digital collages. I’m very interested in ‘semiotic’ and ‘assemblage’ approaches, I think they are the foundations of my art motivations.
I am Janine Pendleton, and I am an explorer of abandoned places. I travel the world in search of amazing lost locations and I photograph them to share with the world. I think there is much beauty in what humanity leaves behind when we move on and leave our ruins to be reclaimed by nature.
Even the mightiest buildings succumb to the ravages of time. This huge complex was once the administrative headquarters of one of the biggest steel companies in France. This was the repository of all the industry paper records, documenting the deals and finances over the decades. It was purpose-built in the 1890s to both store records as well as to showcase the company’s steelwork. The huge atrium boasts an impressive skylight. All that glass and concrete is held up by the iron girders, which they manufactured in their own nearby steelworks. The French steel industry collapsed in the 1980s, and the offices were closed and left to decay.
Booking a hotel or especially an Airbnb is always a gamble because you don’t really know what state the place is in until you arrive and see it with your own eyes. The photos can be edited or taken a long time ago, or can simply be of a different place. Of course, there are reviews you can read, but ultimately you just have to trust that what you see is what you’re going to get.
Sadly, this was not the case for TikToker @phoenruber who thought that she would get an old but tidy room but entered a ‘hoarder’s house’ instead. The photos on the Airbnb website were drastically different from reality and what is the strangest part is that the reviews were really good and the owner had 5-star ratings.
However, going through a subreddit that was created all the way back in 2010 can take you quite a while. So we hand-picked a set of photos of the most impressive works the members of r/CrossStitch have shared. Enjoy!
I have recently ‘tattooed’ my whole arm with sea-themed sticker tattoos and it brought me ’90s nostalgia and, honestly, made my day. Covering your arms and other body parts with temporary sticker tattoos was the most badass thing you could do as a child to impress others. Real stickers found in gum worked like a charm, too. What if those sticker masterpieces were permanent? The sticker tattoo trend is taking the ink world by storm and Luke Cormier, known as mr.sticker.tattoo, is a master at it. With bright colors, good shading, and a bit of white, his 3D tattoos look like real stickers that make you want to peel them off.
What if we told you that the set designers for Star Trek didn’t make every single thing that ever appeared on the show? Instead, the staff worked very carefully on sourcing and selecting everyday objects that would fit the overall theme of the show. Everything from cutlery to glasses and even chairs in the show were everyday items accessible to most of us (at some point). For example, Captain Janeway’s office chair is a Signét 8400 chair from HÅG, which is a Norwegian design company, not to mention there were also items that were bought at IKEA.
If you ever feel like some architects live in their own fantasy land, you’re not the only one. The buildings that they create can range from majestic all the way to magical, and they’re sure to catch your eye with their flying buttresses, stoic columns, angelic balconies, and fearsome facades. However, you can sometimes get the idea that some of these artistic innovators haven’t fully thought some things through—like the fact that people actually have to live and work in the buildings they design.
With real-life facts often being far stranger than fiction, there’s nothing like a good history book to get your noggin’ joggin’ and make you appreciate life from a whole different perspective. I might have started my love affair with history as a subject with the amazing Horrible History book series, but I’ve since then graduated to thick and dusty tomes.
However, I still have a yearning for the more fun and unusual aspects of history that first drew me in. And that’s where the Weird History Twitter page comes into play. A page with 172k followers that’s been active since September 2011, Weird History is the brainchild of Andrew Rader who does, well, pretty much everything: from book-writing to cool space stuff.
