” Jennifer landed this 120-pound yellowfin tuna off Panama in May 2014. She caught the tuna on a Black Hole Cape Cod special 250g jigging rod and Avet MXL Raptor reel with 65-pound Fins braid. Panama yellowfins can amass so thick around bait schools that it’s possible to motor right into the school and watch tunas fly through the air next to the boat.”
” Cynthia landed this nice little tunny on a recent trip. The little tunny is often confused with similar species, mostly because it has different nicknames in different regions and looks like other tunalike fish. Find out the difference between a tuna and a bonito.”

” These spooky apocalyptic images are not a scene from “Walking Dead”, they were actually taken at one of the biggest car cemeteries in the world – the Chatillion Car Graveyard, Belgium.
According to an urban legend these cars were left behind by US soldiers from World War II, who could not ship them back to the US so they decided to hide them in a forest until they could come back and retrieve them. The locals disagree and say that it’s simply an old car dump of vehicles made after the WWII.
At one point there were four car graveyards in Chatillon with as many as 500 retro vehicles. Unfortunately, most of the cars were stolen or removed by the locals and due to environmental issues the whole graveyards was cleared in 2010.”

” While small “drones” have raised controversy in the US, they’ve made a lasting contribution to the world of photography. A light camera and a quadcopter can capture beautiful aerial shots that might once have been difficult or impossible for most photographers. Last year, Dronestagram launched as a place for both amateurs and professionals to upload their work.”
” This year, it opened a contest to find the very best ones. The winners, picked with the help of users and National Geographic, represent the spectrum of drone photography, from high-flying nature shots to athletic spectacles to people who are just wondering what’s up there looking at them. “Went back to my home town in the Philippines. I was flying in the park one Sunday morning when suddenly people had become really interested,” writes Jericsaniel, who captured the second-place photograph above. “Looking at this picture, I realized how happy my drone makes these people.” And the winning photographer, who deserves every bit of that accolade, has actually managed to make a drone fly with the eagles.”

” Our society has come a long way in the past few decades but we’ve completely forgotten what it’s like to be classy. Let’s take a lesson from these masters of “old school cool.”
” Elspeth Beard, shortly after becoming first Englishwoman to circumnavigate the world by motorcycle. The journey took 3 years and covered 48,000 miles.”
Even if you’re not impressed with Ms Beard and her accomplishments there’s no denying that Mr Eastwood was and is a master of “cool” .
” Clint Eastwood with actresses Olive Sturgess and Dani Crayne in San Francisco, 1954″
While this product never caught on , and indeed would no doubt be banned by the “safety nazis” today there is a major “cool factor” to these motorized roller skates .

” A Brazilian police officer was filmed firing what appear to be live rounds at anti-World Cup protesters this weekend.”
” The incident was captured by the Associated Press close to Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium during the Argentina vs Bosnia-Herzegovina match on Sunday.
The scenes also saw a man in plain clothes who identified himself as a police officer fire two shots into the air. He continued firing as he was driven away. The news agency was not able to confirm his identity.
Some residents have turned to artistic protest – daubing walls with anti-Fifa graffiti.
” One mural in particular, at a Sao Paulo school by renowned street artist Paulo Ito, has gone viral on social media, showing a weeping, starving Brazilian boy, knife and fork in hand, being served a football on a plate.”

” Two years ago, the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix made what was supposed to be its triumphant return after a three-year hiatus.
Public and private officials in Detroit touted the event’s return as another significant step in turning around the city. But in reality, Belle Isle itself wasn’t ready for the severe beating three days of racing can do to a course and nearly 100,000 people.
The 2012 nationally televised event was delayed for hours due to patches of the track becoming unearthed. Race fans, media and drivers all looked on in bewilderment.
” It was like playing Russian roulette, and I just pulled a bullet,” said James Hinchcliffe, who crashed his car into a safety barrier after hitting a piece of the unearthed track in 2012.
However, those days have now long passed, according to this attendees this weekend at the 2014 Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.
” It’s much better laid out,” said Molly Bogardus during Friday’s practice and qualifying rounds. The 46-year-old Eaton Rapids, Mich., resident has attended the Grand Prix with her husband, Jeff Bogardus, every year since its return three years ago.”
” Leaving behind a pioneering legacy, pin-up model turned pin-up photographer, Bunny Yeager, has sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 85. Born March 13, 1929 Yeager started her career as a pin-up model herself, eventually switching sides of the camera and becoming one of the most commercially successful female photographers of our time.”

” A well-respected figure, known for her more provocative approach to pin-up photography and connections in the industry, her work drew the attention of some of the best in the business. None other than Diane Arbus, one of Yeager’s contemporaries, once said on record that Yeager was “the world’s greatest pin-up photographer.” “

” In the past several years, one of the topics covered in detail on these pages has been the surge in such gimmicks designed to disguise lack of demand and end customer sales, used extensively by US automotive manufacturers, better known as “channel stuffing”, of which General Motors is particularly guilty and whose inventory at dealer lots just hit a new record high. But did you know that when it comes to flat or declining sales and stagnant end demand, channel stuffing is merely the beginning?
Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go To Die (courtesy of Vincent Lewis’ Unsold Cars)
” Above is just a few of the thousands upon thousands of unsold cars at Sheerness, United Kingdom. Please do see this on Google Maps….type in Sheerness, United Kingdom. Look to the west coast, below River Thames next to River Medway. Left of A249, Brielle Way.”
” There are hundreds of places like this in the world today and they keep on piling up…
Houston…We have a problem!…Nobody is buying brand new cars anymore! Well they are, but not on the scale they once were. Millions of brand new unsold cars are just sitting redundant on runways and car parks around the world. There, they stay, slowly deteriorating without being maintained.”
” There is proof that the worlds recession is still biting and wont let go. All around the world there are huge stockpiles of unsold cars and they are being added to every day. They have run out of space to park all of these brand new unsold cars and are having to buy acres and acres of land to store them.
The images on this webpage showing all of these unsold cars are just a very small portion of those around the world. There are literally thousands of these “car parks” rammed full of unsold cars in practically every country on the planet. Just in case you were wondering, these images have not been Photoshopped, they are the real deal!
Its hard to believe that there are so many unsold cars in the world but its true. The worse part is that the amount of unsold cars keeps on getting bigger every day.”

“ Jim Golden takes pictures of products, sometimes all by themselves. Other times he assembles incredible collections of everyday objects and antiquated technologies into stunning spreads, like this painstakingly placed array of retro video game systems.”
” Golden’s latest project is called Relics of Technology, and it’s a bit of both. Collecting bits and pieces of obsolete technology like floppy disks and Betamax tapes, he’s assembled some into pleasing patterns like his previous work. But he’s also taken single, iconic pieces of bygone tech and brought them to life with some of the highest quality animated GIFs you’ve ever seen. It’s one thing to see a still image of a rotary phone, but another entirely to remember — or realize — how the receiver would physically jump in response to an incoming call.”
” “The seeds for the Relics of Technology project started when I found a brick cellphone at a thrift store in rural Oregon,” says Golden. “Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing my attention. The fascination was equal parts nostalgia for the forms, and curiosity as to what had become of them. One thing led to another and I was on the hunt for groups of media and key pieces of technology, most of which have now been downsized to fit in the palms of our hands. These photos are reminders that progress has a price and our efforts have an expiration date.” “

” “Okay, can I take it out of the box now?”
Lytro product director Colvin Pitts wants to show me the camera he’s been working on since 2007. He cautions that it’s just an early model, then gently lifts the stark, black device out of an unmarked box. It looks like a cross between a DSLR and a futuristic weapon. It’s big, with a wide round lens and a large grip, but it weighs less than 2 pounds and is perfectly comfortable in my hands. Its back face is slanted, like someone chopped off part of a larger camera to form this one. Its big, 4-inch touchscreen is glowing. I hold the camera up, point it at the black Sharpie on the table in front of me, and press the shutter. Nothing happens. I press it again. Still nothing.
“ Now this is the part where I go back to that caveat at the beginning,” Pitts says. “My camera has frozen in the box.” It’s stuck on the menu screen and won’t budge. The camera, which Todd Roesler, senior director of hardware engineering, quickly swaps for a functioning model, is one of a handful of first-run production models delivered from China. It’s less than three weeks before launch, less than four months before the product codenamed Blitzen is scheduled to ship to customers, and Lytro has just gotten its first taste of how the product will look and work. There’s clearly a lot left to do. “This is the final form,” Pitts says, “but the colors and a lot of things are off. The rings are awful: we screwed up making them, so when you feel it, this is nothing like what the product will feel like.” Even now, it feels solid and polished, with just the right controls in the right places and an instantly familiar usability. The rings do feel horrible, though, loose and rubbery and too quick to turn.
A few tweaks here and there and this black brick will be Lytro’s Illum, a brand-new $1,599 camera designed to show professional photographers, and the world, the power of light-field photography. It’s the company’s second camera, the follow-up to its eponymous point-and-shoot that could refocus a photo after it was shot. The Illum does that better, and takes much better and more versatile pictures in general. But for Lytro, the real plan is only beginning to unfold. The company’s job, its mission, is to fundamentally change the way we think about images. To not just provide better, faster cameras that take beautiful pictures, but to reimagine what a picture is in the first place. That part hasn’t changed since the dawn of photography nearly two centuries ago, and Lytro believes it holds the keys to the next phase.”
