Seeing How Identical Twins Differ Later In Life Is Fascinating








” When identical twins are born, they look like they will grow up to be the same person. They literally have the same face, the same body. Even their parents may need assistance in identifying who is who when they are just children. Even though twins start life looking like the other person, inside each of them is a very different soul. (Even a twin’s genetic makeup is completely unique and not an exact match to their counterpart’s.)

  Photographer Gao Rongguo created a photo series that focuses on how life changes each of us. He studied twins that grew up where he did, the Shandong province of China. He took pictures of identical twins and placed them side-by-side, to make it look as if the twins were facing each other. He wanted to allow others to reflect on the differences that life, learning and experience can have on us all, but is especially apparent in identical twins.”

         Staggering 360-Degree Image Taken 1,776ft Up The Nation’s Tallest Skyscraper Is Released As One World Trade Center Prepares To Finally Open




Top Of AmericaClick Pic To Go To Time's Interactive GigaPic

” The beautiful image is also available online in interactive high-resolution that allows users to pan across the panorama and to zoom in onto landmarks such as the George Washington Bridge 11 miles away and across the five boroughs of New York City and across to New Jersey.

   The 360-degree view was constructed digitally with computer software developed by GigaPan Systems of Portland, Oregon using the same technology as NASA’s Mars rovers.”



      Back in January we featured a post on a GigaPixelArt creation , an interactive panoramic “Easter Egg Hunt” in Seattle that was immediately called to mind by this photo . Check it out .



” The image marks something of a resolution too. Twelve-years on from the destruction by terrorists of the Twin Towers this is a view that some thought would never be seen again in New York City.”




Clean up, recovery and construction: This is the World Trade Center development site seen from the newly opened 7 World Trade Center in 2006 as work on the huge foundations of One World Trade Center began unseen by the public hundreds of feet below ground

” Over the past 12-years, nine governors of New Jersey and New York, two mayors and thousands of victims’ families all battled over real estate that also needed to be a shrine.

  It took three years of clearing and cleaning for the cornerstone to be laid and another two years after that for construction to actually start.”



Relief: Indeed, for many, this image is a relief. The political and bureacratic wrangling over how to rebuild the 16-acre hole in downtown Manhattan left by the destruction of the old World Trade Center was one that many feared with never be filed again

The Secluded Homeless Camps Of Baltimore



Photo Credit: Ben Marcin


” During the hunting season, Ben Marcin likes to hike on the edge of Baltimore’s woodlands. That’s where he discovered the city’s secluded homeless camps; makeshift dwellings for locals who choose to live off the grid but close to roadways and shopping centers. 

  Marcin is no stranger to documenting solitude in the built environment. So he decided to find as many of these as possible, putting together a photo project called Camps. Similar to Last House Standing, in which the photographer captured lonely rowhouses around the Mid-Atlantic, Marcin shot the dwellings without the dwellers themselves.

  While Baltimore’s solitary rowhouses often symbolize neighborhood decline and the dedication of those who remain, Camps shows a different kind of loneliness – the section of Baltimore’s homeless population that feels uncomfortable using city-provided shelters. Instead, these residents choose to carve out their own lives using whatever materials they can find.

  The results are fascinating. As Marcin notes, no two shelters look the same, and each one reflects the user’s possessions, needs, and creativity. Some are no more than a bed under a roadway, others have their own roofs with facades built entirely of old doors or milk crates. “

Awesome Slideshow From HawaiiNewsNow



“Jaws” in Maui

” A monster swell considered to be one of the largest in decades hit Hawaii shores on Jan. 23, 2014. Waves of 50-feet slammed beaches across the state. Authorities were forced to close beaches, including the iconic Waimea Bay.”  Click to read more

And here’s another from Waimea Bay on Thursday



HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

” An intense storm northwest of the Hawaiian Islands triggered the super swell, which had been rapidly building throughout the day and into the evening. 

  The National Weather Service said around 9 a.m. Buoy 101, which measures open ocean swells northwest of the Hawaiian Islands, reported an ocean swell of 31 feet at 17 seconds. That translates to 50+ feet on the north shore around 7 p.m. 

  North shore beaches on Thursday saw 30 to 40 foot faces, west shores 15 to 25 feet and west shores of the Big Island 10 to 15 feet. Currently a high surf warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday for the north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai, the north shore of Maui. A high surf advisory has been issued for the Big Island until 6 a.m. Saturday. “

This Guy’s Crazy Idea Started To Make His Wife Nervous. But It Was All Worth It, Trust Me.

” During the intensely cold winter in Canada, one man had an awesome, but crazy, idea. He began filling up plastic tubs with water and letting them sit out overnight. Day after day he did this, until he had a pile of ice bricks sitting out on the lawn. What he did with them was the coolest thing (pun definitely intended).”

Over the course of four weeks, this man froze ice blocks. His wife began to worry as they started to fill the driveway.

” These frozen lighthouses in Michigan could easily be mistaken for a scene from the disaster movie The Day After Tomorrow.

  Standing in temperatures well below freezing, the 30ft structures have been transformed into giant icicles.

  These stunning photographs were captured by American photographer Thomas Zakowski, 56, on a trip to two cities in Michigan after a storm battered the state.”

5. Willard Asylum – Willard, New York







” Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane was built in 1869 and closed in 1995. Housing 4000 patients at its peak, more than half of the 50,000 patients who called Willard Asylum their home died within its walls. This makes the asylums morgue (pictured above) one of the creepiest places we can imagine. By its closure, most patients were eventually integrated back into society, but in the early days “people didn’t leave unless it was in a box.” “
