NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft has captured the first flash of sunlight reflected off a lake on Saturn’s moon Titan, confirming the presence of liquid on the part of the moon dotted with many large, lake-shaped basins. The glint off a mirror-like surface is known as a specular reflection.
This kind of glint was detected by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on July 8, 2009. It confirmed the presence of liquid in the moon’s northern hemisphere, where lakes are more numerous and larger than those in the southern hemisphere.

Nazroo, a mahout (elephant driver), poses for a portrait while taking his elephant, Rajan, out for a swim in front of Radha Nagar Beach in Havelock, Andaman Islands. Rajan is one of the few elephants in Havelock that can swim, so when he is not dragging timber in the forest he is used as a tourist attraction. The relationship between the mahout and his elephant usually lasts for their entire lives, creating an extremely strong tie between the animal and the human being. (Photo and caption by Cesare Naldi)
Chris Jordan is a Seattle-based photographic artist known for his large-scale images of American mass consumption.
“Running The Numbers” looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on.
Jordan’s hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as those we find daily in news articles and books.
The artwork of Liz Wolfe is almost entirely based around a singular concept: What is responsible for the human brain’s basic perception of “beauty” when judging the world around us? When first seen, the first reaction is rather light compared to the stark themes that arise upon further inspection.
The Pink and Blue Project by Korean photographer, Jeong-Mee Yoon, shows boys and girls with a collection of their personal items.
“The Pink and Blue Project” was at first motivated by my daughter. At five years old, she loves pink so much that she wants to wear only pink clothes and use only pink toys or objects.
Chris Jordan’s large-scale color photographs portray the detritus of American consumption. Gaining access to some of the country’s largest industrial waste facilities, Jordan photographs the refuse of the consumer culture on an immense scale.
But the thing I can say when I look at this photographs is that he can see the beauty whithin in our garbage.
Believe it or not, the picture above is not a miniature set but a photo of a real scene. The technique used to achieve this wonderful effect is tilt-shift photography. The tilt-shift lens is rather expensive, but you can make your own or even fake it using Photoshop. The link below will take you to an amazing Japanese photoblog that features this technique.
What you see is not aerial photography but a wonderful landscape made of wool designed by Marianne Desmarais & Liz Sargent. You can find more pics of their project at BANFFscape, along with a philosophical explanation of the concept.
