Potpourri [9]

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.

web site
Artistic Friends. Part of a fascinating series of montages, showing figures from classic paintings in modern day pop culture situations or vice versa. I love their take on the TV sitcom Friends, which looks stunningly natural to me (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Politics 2016/2017. This beautiful piece of graffiti by an artist who works under the name Mogul (shades of Banksy) would be even more fun, if it would not be so true, given what's been happening with Brexit and the US elections (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Bohol Island Chocolate Hills. This Philippines landscape is one of the weirdest and most beautiful that I've seen - on photographs that is. Maybe one day in reality as well. It is also an excellent shot by Per-Andre Hoffmann (Natural Beauty). First seen here.
web site
Akoya plane. This design by LISA airplanes is of exceptional beauty, as well as amazingly practical: it can land on water, snow, and land. It would be fun to fly one - if I could fly, that is. What we used to call a minor technical detail (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Bologna, Bologna. In the 13th century, the skyline of the central Italian city Bologna, sporting over 180 high-rise towers, must have been as impressive as that of New York seven centuries later. It's a pity so few are still standing today (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Movie pawsters. This is a nice and fun piece of photoshopping: an imgur user called lamirene photoshops his or her dog into famous movie posters, with adjusted titles. My favourite is the American beauty/cutie combination (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Banana! Provided that the image is not Photoshopped (a proviso one has to make all the time nowadays), this is one of the most stupid mistakes I've seen for quite a while. And to include it in an education book for children... (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Antelope Canyon. The linked post in MyModernMet is well worthwhile clicking. You will find a whole series of beautiful photographs of stunning canyons in the USA. this one of the colourful Antelope Canyon is my favourite (Natural Beauty). First seen here.
