NASA used the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to catalog the entire infrared sky, showing more than a half billion stars, galaxies and other objects. WISE launched Dec. 14, 2009, and mapped the entire sky in 2010, collecting more than 2.7 million images. It took images at four infrared wavelengths of light, capturing everything from nearby asteroids to distant galaxies.
In all, more than 15 trillion bytes of data were processed and the individual WISE exposures have been combined into an atlas of more than 18,000 images covering the sky. In addition, a catalog lists the infrared properties of more than 560 million individual objects found in the images. Many of them have never been seen before.

It looks like Photoshop but in fact, photographer Cade Martin here used especially made props and a veritable zoo of stuffed animals from a local taxidermist. It took two days to shoot the campaign in Martin’s basement studio.
As an example of what can go wrong during a shoot, the talent booked in New York City refused to travel by train with hurricane Irene hitting land. An earthquake also damaged the original location. Adapting to a new location and a new talent turned out better than expected.

Eat, sleep, work… no way. No more routine! Escape the madness, escape the system.
The character is a mix of James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Tintin and King Kong, lol!!!
I took this photo recently in Barcelona subway. I also made the illustration in colors.
Artist Ben Heine has innovated his Pencil Vs Camera artwork by doing colored sketches on black paper. The result is as spectacular as you’d expect, adding a time dimension and giving a night time feel to the pencil portion of the artwork.
Roadsworth sees hearts everywhere he goes, some hidden, others in plain sight. Some of them are naturally occurring, others cleverly planned. What I like about this series is the hidden message in the pictures: that every city has a heart, whether it is a kind heart, an inviting heart, an inclusive heart — or a tough, I only care about me heart. What kind of heart does your city have?
Roadsworth began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of “car culture” in general, he continued to develop a language around street markings and other elements of the urban landscape using a primarily stencil based technique. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. Despite the threat of heavy fines and a criminal record he received a relatively lenient sentence which he attributes in part to the public support he received subsequent to his arrest. Since that time, Roadsworth has received various commissions for his work and continues to be active in both visual art and music.

Ben Heine has published Pencil vs Camera #57 and #58, new photos in his Flesh and Acrylic collection, as well as a number of artistic photos.
Matthias Heiderich sees form and geometry in the daily scenes around him. The shadow of a streetlamp projected onto the wall of a building, the bold colors of a handrail, the repetitive nature of many of the design elements in our modern architecture — all lend to making Heiderich’s photography interesting.
If your photography has become stale, or simply to exercise your photographic eye, try to see the interesting composition in the daily: patterns, shadows, colors and especially geometric shapes. They’re there, all around you; you just have to look.

The London community of Instagramers have scheduled an exhibit of its photographers called My World Shared. It’s headlined as “An exhibition of personal perspectives shared through Instagram.”
My World Shared captures the concept of Instagram – to record in images our world around us, our lives, our outlook, our views, and share that view with the rest of the world. It is an individual view, but one that others can relate to, like postcards from a friend.
My World Shared Exhibition will take place at the East Gallery – Brick Lane – London.
The Exhibition will be opened for Public on the 22nd and 23rd of October 2011, from 12pm until 8pm.
