Potpourri [8]

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.

Incredible shadows. This amazing shot was aken from a post about very unusual shadow effects. The dog photograph that I selected seems to come straight out of a horror movie, but there are lots of others in the link that are worth browsing (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Buff tailed coronet. One of the best shots in the 2017 National Geographic Traveler Contest. It is one of the most perfect bird photographs I've ever seen, showing this humming bird variety hanging feeding from a flower while hovering in mid air (Natural Beauty). First seen here.
web site
Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. This is just one example of a panorama shot gone completely and awfully wrong - and my personal favourite from the linked site. You can find many more in the link though - definitely worth clicking through! (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Trump in horror movies. The selected scene from the Kubrick classic The Shining is my favourite of the bunch, but there are a lot more to "enjoy" in the link - all with President Trump's face Photoshopped into iconic horror movie scenes (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Peekaboo glasses. Taken from an Oddee contribution about many strange - and sometimes really horrible - glasses. This Jeremy Scott Flesh Hands frame by Georgio is one of the worst, but others are candidates for future posts (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Parking from the air. Taken from a post on amazing aerial photographs taken with drones. I love the strong repetitive pattern of this parking lot - but once more I recommend clicking the link and browsing the others as well (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Burning Ed Sheeran. No need to click this if you don't follow the brilliant TV series Game of Thrones, in particular the current season 7. However, if you do watch that show, like me, you may find this cartoon, starring the Hound, hilarious (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Connected sculptures. This is a photograph of one of two amazing sculptures created by American multidisciplinary  artist Kasey McMahon, using nothing else than loads and loads of recycled ethernet data cables (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
