Striped icebergs are quite a view. They can form a couple different ways. Blue stripes occur when layers of ice melt and refreeze so fast that no bubbles — which scatter light to give icebergs their white appearance — are created. If the water that freezes is rich in algae, the bands may appear green. Black, brown, and yellow striations are created by sediments picked up by a glacier as it runs down a mountain into the ocean.

GORGEOUS!

Évolution inversée

pretty much the way modern art went. from nice to WHY.jpg

One of main reasons why Picasso and many similar to him are famous to begin with; they actually broke out of what supposed to be a norm in painting. With appearance of Photography, there was no need for strictly descriptive art which followed up to Romanticism, because why paint something so correctly when you can snap picture of it? Now here’s a thing with majority of pioneers of modern art; whenever their style and work especially in late life is question to subjective approach, one thing that connects them all is they fucking knew what they were doing. Picasso didn’t just started drawing random shapes and then claimed it was an idea, he knew how to paint and draw ton’s of stuff, he knew how objects and surfaces behaved and that’s what actually gave him basis to explore further and mold his style and idea as he went. I have nothing against modern art and it was crucial to happen, what I have against is how it’s taught in school and especially art schools, for example we were just thrown Picasso’s work from his 70’s and told to observe. Ok we observed, but, how did he come to that point? How did his work evolve? You threw in Picasso’s late life work among us where many can’t draw a damn line to begin with. And that’s one of reason why many get skewed perception of what art today is. You can say that ”beauty is in eye of beholder” but you know what’s also beauty about art? Amount of knowledge one artists can present in single piece of artwork. There is indeed a really really big difference in artists without knowledge and one artists who possess it. And that shit shows so hard in their work it can stab you trough skull.

Everything is art, but your amount of knowledge about art can and it will reflect on your work. That’s why Modern art is famous in first place.

NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED. 

WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED

Ukrainian nature photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko shows us that snails are so much more than incredibly slow-moving mollusks who leave slimy trails and sometimes end up on people’s dinner plates. By looking at his photos we learn that snails appear to be curious, playful and even affectionate.

Shot in the woodland area near his home town in Berdichev, located in the Zhytomyr Oblast of northern Ukraine, Mishchenko’s beautiful photos are apparently unstaged. Instead he relies on an extraordinarily keen eye for spotting wildlife:

'As a child, my father taught me to hunt mushrooms near my home and we would always come across all manner of bugs and creatures,' he said. 'As I got older and my interest in photography grew, I decided I wanted to catch these magical scenes on camera.'

Visit Vyacheslav Mishchenkos’ website to check out many more of his remarkable nature photos. The only thing missing from them is narration by Sir David Attenborough.
