New Photo Fad: Leisure Dive

Tue July 19, 2011

Here’s another craze that is sure to go viral, hopefully for one Summer only. The idea is to strike a pose in mid-air as you jump into a pool. It can make for some funny pictures. However, do be careful and ensure the pool is full and you’re doing it in the diving zone.

10 O’Clock Smile: Kitten With Overactive Imagination

Mon July 18, 2011


From ignoramusky

If you have ever grown up with kittens, you know they have an overactive imagination. All they need is an excuse to pounce, twirl around and imagine they are facing a worthy foe.

Man Looks At Face First, Woman At…

Mon July 18, 2011

A study about Visual Attention Pattern shows that men and women do look at things differently, in this case, ads. In the H&M ad above, men were found to look at the model’s face first while women zoomed in onto her breasts. Surprising? Both men and women were drawn to the woman’s legs and torso before the advert’s information and branding.

In another ad where an attractive female stands wearing nothing but a pair of white Reebok trainers, mens’ eyes were drawn to the model’s body and barely to the shoes at all. No surprise here!

A third ad featured a Saab car. While men went straight to the car’s specification before looking at the car, women were first drawn to the car then to its specification.

I wonder how men and women make their decision when choosing a digital camera.
