Sydney Toy Town

This is wonderful! Using a technique known as tilt shift with time lapse photography, Keith Loutit has made a series of videos in which the people and objects look like toys. I especially love The North Wind Blew South. It's fun to see familiar places on Sydney Harbour in this unfamiliar way!

Generous to a fault

Ooh, I have to blog this beautiful thing ... a group of ten New York artists (they call themselves The Federation of Students and Nominally or Unemployed Artists) raised $100 each and then spent 4 hours giving it away to passers-by who explained their dreams and personal projects to them. No ifs, no buts, no strings attached, just free grants to help people achieve their goals.

I watched the video with a grin from ear to ear!

Lightpainting pianissimo bellissimo

I love these light paintings and this one gets my vote for humour!
