These pictures of skewed perspective will make your eyes do some acrobatics in order to understand what's actually going on. In case this isn't enough eye-confusing strangeness then here's some more.

The story goes like this: over 70 years ago a World War II soldier filled 31 rolls of film with pictures, and in 2014, The Rescued Film Project, recovered all 31 of those rolls. What follows, is a video showing what went into the development of these photos, and then as an audience, we even get to see some of them! Pretty neat.

Photographer Takes Photos of Everyday People Doing Tasks With and Without Clothes and Her Reason is Heartwarming

Sophia Vogel is a German photographer who aims to reduce the shame and bashfulness we all feel when we are without our clothes. 


"I want to point out that being naked should feel just as natural as being clothed," she said."If you think of it right, we are all naked underneath our clothes."

"The pressure of being a sexual being is omnipresent for every human being. We are observed and judged every day, and the fashion industry lavishes beauty ideals and criticism on us. We set high standards for ourselves. I want to speak up against these ridiculous standards."

"By presenting all kinds of different body shapes and natural postures I would love to show that everybody is beautiful in their own way. I love to present nudity in an aesthetic manner without any sexual context. Not every single nude photograph should be linked to sexuality."

Dying Dog Lives Just Long Enough to Walk Down the Aisle at His Human's Wedding

"Sweet Charlie is this bride's beloved dog. He has a brain tumor and is on his last few days on this planet. He used up all of his energy before the wedding and didn't have the strength to make it back up the aisle - so the maid of honor scooped him up and carried him. She's 5'3". He's 80 pounds. There isn't enough mascara in the world for these moments." -JenDz

Mike Karas saw the perfect sunset with two newlyweds in frame and captured it with his zoom lens, despite being several hundred yards away and definitely not the official wedding photographer.

"I was with some other hikers and saw them pop out on that ledge just as the sun was setting. It was surreal."


Great work Mike!
