Trains!!!

TRAINS!!!!

I’m not a geek…honest! Well, I am really but not a train geek!

Sony went to visit Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg, Germany, to test out it’s cameras. See the YouTube clip here for more.

PARTY TIME!

Every miniature wonderland needs a portaloo section!

Photo Geekery

Gigapixel Photos

I enjoy a nice photo, have been known to dabble in picture taking and have even sold a few photos too.

But what’s better than a photo that stays the same? One that changes, that’s what!

Check out these SUPER hi-resolution photo projects of various places around the world. Pan from side to side, up and down, and make use of the INSANE hi-resolution goodness and zoom in. And then zoom in some more!

If Only For A Second

Timelapse: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

This is a quite spectacular time-lapse video of a hot air balloon festival. You are never too old to appreciate a balloon (or several hundred!)

It’s also worth checking out Roadtrippers.com’s YouTube channel as their other videos are pretty great too!

Amazing Poster for Aliens

Click Here

At first glance this might just look like a rather fuzzy, low-resolution image of a poster for 80s film Aliens. Take a closer look though. Click here to be taken to said closer look.

The poster is made up of 10, 126 tiny individual images, each of a scene from the movie. Very cleverly done – but you must click the link to fully appreciate it where you are able to zoom in and explore the poster more clearly. As an indcator of how big this image is, it is 8127 x 12302 and 100 megapixels.

Process a negative with your brain…

This is pretty clever. (via: Michael Zhang post)

Stare at the coloured dots on this negative image for at least thirty seconds and then look at a white wall and blink rapidly and see what happens.

Walking On Air

 

This is a beautiful video filmed by astronauts onboard the International Space Station of our amazing planet. How lucky they are to get a first hand view like this, one that only a very small minority of us will ever get to see. It might be a little cliched, but when you see the Earth from this view doesn’t it make you wonder why there are so many people fighting over such silly things? It also makes me want to take better care of our planet. Maybe more people will get the chance to see this view when Richard Branson’s space tourism flights begin. Maybe he’ll have a cheap return ticket Ryanair-style?!
