Flat Earthers Will Say That It's Photoshop

We would like to say that you can't argue with photographic evidence but some people can and DO argue that the Earth is actually flat. If you're not a government clone of a celebrity (like Tila Tequila) or if you believe in science, you'll still love these amazing pictures of Earth from outer space.

Amazing Works By Vincent van Gogh In A New Perspective.

Tilt-shift photography became a new big thing on the web a couple years ago but now it's coming back. What is it exactly? Well, a special lens that gives a real-world scene the illusion of being a miniature model. The same effect can be simulated in Photoshop, by adjusting contrast, color saturation and depth of focus. It works well with photographs, but this time they decided to use this technique with actual paintings. They decided to use Vincent van Gogh's famous paintings and this is what happened;

An Astronaut's Stunning Time Lapse Photo From International Space Station

It's safe to say that the astronauts chilling up on the International Space Station have a pretty good view. Possible the best view of Earth (ha ha). Astronaut Christina Koch had some time on her hands, and made an incredible time lapse photo of the Earth from an 11 minute video. It's definitely not a perspective you see every day, and it is absolutely beautiful.

Every city has it's own personality. The winding alleyways, crowded streets, tree-lined rivers and bustling markets of each city feel like they're the first of their kind. There's nothing like eating a bagel in New York, sipping tea in Istanbul, watching the road crossings in Tokyo, eating macaroons in Paris, or waiting for a herd of cows to cross the road in Delhi. 

Every city is recognizable when photographed from street level - but what about from an aerial view? This collection of fifteen aerial photos give you a completely new and unexpected perspective of the cities we all love. Enjoy exploring, travelers!

Eleven Surreal Photos of The 2019 Hunter's Moon

If you looked up during the past two nights, you might have noticed that the moon was bigger and brighter than usual. That's because this full moon was not just any old moon: we just witnessed a Hunter's Moon. This is one of the Native American full moon names that occur each month of the year, signalling a change in season. 

These 12 full moons are named for the activity or people they target. Therefore, the Hunter's Moon occurs around this time that hunters should traditionally begin to hunt game in preparation for winter. Since farmers would have recently harvested their crops during the Harvest Moon that takes place in September, the clear fields and bright moon would serve for perfect hunting conditions. 

Today, most people don't depend on the moon's stages to survive, but we can appreciate it's signaling of a change in the season, and if you're into it, the astrological meaning of the skies. Or you can just appreciate the beauty of the moon. If you didn't get a chance to see this years Hunter's Moon, check out these otherworldly photos that were taken from all over the world.

NASA Released an Amazing 3D Map of the Moon

Most of us see the moon almost every night, but few people have seen a decent high-res picture of the moon, let alone a high-res picture of the dark side of the moon. To be able to see the moon - every side of it - in detail would really require being in space and flying around it. And 99.9% of us Earthlings don't have that opportunity (yet). So once again, NASA has come to the rescue, this time providing us with an amazing 3D map of the whole moon for computer graphics artists to use to their heart's content. For the first time, we can explore the moon (digitally). And it's incredible. If you want to see some more amazing photos from NASA, check out these new photos of Mars

Hilarious Accidental Hats on AI Generated People (25 Photos)

Like so many things in our lives right now, stock photography is being revolutionized by artificial intelligence. This technology is so advanced that it can create completely realistic pictures of people. Generated Photos is a company that has AI generated 100,000 images of peoples faces, of all ages and ethnicities, and they're all available for downloading and use on Google Drive. Some of the photos are impossible to tell apart from real people. 

But, advanced as it is, the AI making these faces still has it's flaws and sometimes botches the photos, making the people look just wrong. In the really extreme cases, the AI has created weird hats (for want of a better word) on these really happy people. And they are hilarious. Bless the AI for trying it's best, but these photos will make you ask "Why? Just why?. It seems that photographers don't have to worry about losing their jobs to AI just yet.
