Potpourri [5]

An overview of recent images that would have ended up in my parallel blog Art's Potpourri (now stopped). Clicking the icons in the left side of the table takes you to the picture on the site where I found it in a new window. The text includes a link to the site.

Touch the sky. These photographs of clouds, storms and lightnings, taken from the cockpit of an airliner by pilot Santiago Borja Lopez are truly amazing (Natural Beauty). First seen here.
web site
Optical illusions level infinity. The linked video is a must-see for optical illusions fans. Kokichi Sugihara is responsible for these mind blowing masterpieces (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Miniature bicycle stand. They are fun and should be applied in many places: these bicycle stands designed by Yuma Kano, shaped like little bicycles (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
When Trump met Saruman. The "orb picture" with Trump has been spoofed many times, but this one is brilliant. Saruman looks 100% like he belongs in this scene (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Flower cakes. If ever the phrase "too beautiful to eat" was applicable, it is for the buttercream frosting floral cake creations by Jakarta-based Ivenoven (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Full moon service. Erik Johansson is one of the best photo artists, using Photoshop to create brilliant artistic images. His latest creation comes with a "how did I do it" video (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Balloon animals. What is normally a craft becomes art in the hands of Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto. His balloon animals are absolutely amazing (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Covfefe. When President Trump tweets a sentence ending abruptly in a non-existing word, the internet predictably has a field day. Some of the best reactions in the link (Just for Fun). First seen here.
