Anything for the Perfect Shot! - Part 3

"QUANTUM SHOT" #574
Link



Photographers continue to be wildly creative when it comes to finding that perfect spot, an impossible angle, or a singular moment, which lead to an outstanding picture. Sometimes this search becomes hilarious, or even dangerous - and one has to wonder if they get these perfect results they were after? "Sorry buddy, but your lens cap is on".

Post--it Love


Link
Scroll down for today's pictures & links.

Post-it Love

Another office romance story, but this time very inventive and charming. Good acting, too:

Post-it notes can be very handy in creating stop-motion animation, see this example: Deadline! cool animation, and how it was made....

Today's pictures & links:

Inspiration for the Tyrell Corporation "ziggurats" in Blade Runner?

Do you remember our article about Paolo Soleri giant megapolis structures? Another wonderful futurist architect - Antonio Sant' Elia - also dreamed up many radical designs, for example, a train station in Milan - complete with an airport on the roof!



(image via)

He also had some interesting beliefs, for example, he thought that each generation should rebuild their city from scratch, based on their needs, and allowing for no historical preservation. His designs were a key influence on the Barbican Center in London - a Modernist, Brutalist (is this a term?) classic.

The Incredible Dehydrated Cat



and a small fuzzy "emo" creature:

French Aerotrain, worth remembering

Even though this "Aerotrain" was abandoned by the French government in favour of TGV, it was an interesting prototype in the 1960s that ran on a single concrete rail from Orleans to Paris for more than 100 km.



"Film buffs will remember it as the commuter train taken by Guy Montag in Truffaut's adaptation of Fahrenheit 451" (source)

Military Folding Bikes

Quite a lot more advanced than this incredible French machine.

Montague Corporation recently launched the Paratrooper folding bike, which is already being used in virtually every branch of the U.S. military - more info:

"The Paratrooper was built to drop from an airplane attached to an Airborne soldier, hit the ground, unfold and go. It effectively bridges the gap between walking and the use of heavy mechanized vehicles, allowing soldiers to go further than on foot while not requiring the fuel and logistics associated with a vehicle. When it's not in use, the bike folds down to fit pretty much anywhere."

Speaking of bicycles and tricycles - this one you've probably seen already, but nothing even comes close to the statement it makes:
