Photographs of monuments in former Yugoslavia. [via]

"The Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers undertook a laborious trek through the Balkans in order to photograph a series of these mysterious objects. He captures the Spomeniks in the misty mountain landscape at sundown. Looking at the photographs one must admit to a certain embarrassment. We see the powerful beauty of the monumental sculptures and we catch ourselves forgetting the victims in whose name they were built. [Kempenaers] allows the viewer to enjoy the melancholy beauty of the Spomeniks, but in so doing, forces us to take a position on a social issue." - Willem Jan Neutelings

ok so

i’ve been staring at this damn picture since I posted it

it’s blowing my mind

his reflection is right-side up

the reflection of the rest of the place is upside-down

what the hell kind of wizard is he

how the fuck do you make a curved reflective surface do that

is there a point where if you back away, your reflection just suddenly jumps upside-down

Rolling Through The Bay by Scott Weaver

All it takes is 100,000 toothpicks and 35 years of your life and shazam: San Francisco as a grand, kinetic sculpture. Time well spent, you ask me (and I assume you did). More pics can be seen at tinkering studio
