take a photo every day


Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly

To see more of Manon’s artfully captured images of #flyingstuff, follow @manonwethly.

For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”

“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”

These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”


Woman Takes One Photo Of Herself Every Day For A Week

Wow. Just incredible.

This woman took a photo of herself every single day for a week, and the results will blow you away! As the pictures go by, the photographer undergoes a spectacular transformation that serves as a beautiful reminder of just how profoundly we can change over the course of seven days. It’s a moving testament to life’s impermanence.

Just finished my second year of my photo a day averaging project. See here for year one’s result.

I take a photo every day at the same angle with the same blank expression, and then at the end of the year I average all of the daily photos together. The blurring in the final image is the result of the small deviations from picture to picture from my head slightly turned or eyebrows slightly raised/lowered, changing hair length, etcetera.

There are a few different averaging methods, the one I’m using here is the arithmetic mean, or simply the image data all added together and divided by the total number of images. Averaging methods such as the harmonic mean, geometric mean, and median all produce different results with the median being the only other aesthetically pleasing result.

Stay tuned for monthly averages and the year in review video.

brought this to school for a project but I decided to take it back and just submit a picture instead, cause I could never replace it if it got lost. c:

{narusasu collab fic} “Birthday Boy”

A/N: @fangirlandiknowit101 and I have been trying to write a collaboration ever since she got this awesome pic from @maneki-n-e-k-o. So finally it begins! Dedicated to our precious duckbutt on his birthday <3.

Birthday Boy {a collaboration with @fangirlandiknowit101}

Naruto had scrupulously avoided using the word ‘birthday’. For all Sasuke knew, Naruto had forgotten all about it. It had been a mission and a half just to get Sasuke to agree to meet up at all; he would never have agreed if he knew that Naruto had a reason to make an even bigger deal out of the day.

He stood fidgeting by the station gates. If Sasuke had taken the correct train as instructed, he’d be here in less than 4 minutes (three and a half, actually). He shifted from foot to foot, balancing a salted-caramel latte in one hand and an iced chocolate frappuccino with extra cream in the other. He hoped Sasuke liked his drink; Naruto really wanted to share the wonder of Espresso House with him. Wanted to share lots of things, in fact. A ride around the harbour, exploring Old Town, walking across the countless bridges. He ran through his meticulously-planned out schedule once more. It was gonna be great. If only Sasuke was on time. If only Sasuke actually showed up.

Of course he’d come. Wouldn’t he?

Naruto hadn’t seen him since High School. He’d had to survive on photos from Itachi or Shisui’s facebook; the bastard didn’t have one of his own. Their universities were on opposite ends of Japan, but now here they were, both studying in Europe at the same time- it was fate! It’s just an hour flight to Stockholm, Sas, Naruto had begged. And so cheap! Just come over. I’ll show you around!

One minute left.

His fidgeting grew worse. Sasuke’s latte was getting cold. Jagged pieces of memory flitted through Naruto’s mind; feathery shivers ghosted up and down his arms. He held his frappuccino to his heated cheeks. Don’t blush in front of Sasuke, loser, Naruto told himself firmly. Look, we’re just friends, okay? That’s all we ever were. Don’t blow this chance.

Alright, it was time. Naruto plastered a smile onto his face and waited. And…waited. And waited some more.

…the train station wasn’t that big. Sasuke couldn’t have possibly gotten lost.

Right, he just missed that train, and he’s on the next one, Naruto thought. That was all. It wouldn’t be long and then Sasuke would be here, right in front of him, finally. Just wait a little longer. I’ve waited this long, haven’t I? I can survive another ten minutes.

…*cough* Okayyyy, over to you Emi~~ *blows kisses*. Ohhhh I wonder what you’ll write? And how we’ll find a way to make this NSFW-


Cosplay time!
So we decided to go from Overwatch this year to the AX.

4 ½ cosplays to make in less then a month’s time.  
Started on May 19th… minus the time I have to go home to visit family from this post, I have 26 days left.

Going to try to make:
Reaper- WIP
Genji - WIP, WIP, WIP,
Zenyatta - WIP
Soldier 76- forgot about him in the last post, but just the mask - WIP

- Due to the lack of time, I am kinda rushing things, there are a bunch of things I wish I did different for Genji’s helmet, but all well. XD
- I also ended up cutting a bunch of his helmet down after it was all glued together, the first template is way big, looked so goofy on my head.

- Also I got my copy of Overwatch yesterday… so I hope I don’t get to distracted in the cosplay building.

I will try to remember to take photos and post progress shots every couple of days.

Cutting knife
Foam mats
Contact cement (Side note, bought some barge online but it is going to take a week to get to me)
Exacto knife
Hot glue gun
Heat gun


I made an impromptu Max cosplay… for an anime rave. I am the master of forethought. (To be fair, the comic seems to have recently become a sports anime.)

Max is from Paranatural. Great comic. You all should read it.

When Cas discovers the camera on his smartphone, Dean is ninety percent sure it’s the apocalypse all over again. He thinks this for a couple of reasons:

  1. With the discovery of the camera comes the curiosity of social networking sites (who the hell is Cas gonna ‘friend’ anyway???)
  2. He has the fucking thing in his hand 24/7
  3. He takes pictures of everything

Yes, Castiel has discovered the selfie.

Ize: Myungsoo (L) Interview

Ize: Myungsoo (L) Interview

I heard that you’re interested in photography. How was today’s photo concept?

L: I think it’s very natural. Personally, I like natural photos that you can take in every day life than adventurous styles. My third photo essay that’s going to come out soon is going to have easy to approach
elements and points. Before at one interview, I’ve said that I wanted to photograph Infinite’s album jacket, and that too I want to do a natural style. Whether it’s the beach, Busan Gamcheon culture village, Naksan Park, the place doesn’t matter. On a sunny day, I want to do a shoot with natural light. Like our songs, “She’s Back” or “White confession” the mvs, I want to photograph in that kind of concept. I don’t really like to take pictures in dark places, but honestly I don’t know how to use flash properly. I just took random photos and it came out really truthfully. The person’s atmosphere isn’t contained in it, so I like natural light.

You seem to like everything natural. This is your lightest hair after debut, so it feels kind of awkward (laughs):

L: This is my first time bleaching my hair after birth. At first when I saw it, leaving side if it suit me or not, it was just plain awkward. You might know from seeing my pictures, but I always had black hair. Even if I dyed my hair it was just dark brown. But as time passed, because my hair was brighter, I started to want to wear brighter clothes, and I felt like my personality had lifted a bit from before. Still, if my company asks me to get pink hair, I will greatly refuse. Because it won’t suit me. (laughs)

Do you not have any interests in dressing up?

L: That too, but in my opinion I think dressing neatly suits me the best. I might put on a necklace, watch, a bracelet, or something like that. But I don’t try to overdress. I don’t really like to wear flashy things. I like comfortable bland colours. I wear a lot of sweats too. Of course every now and then I think dressing up is needed. Still, rather than matching
bright colours, usually if I wear two-toned, it’s done. Grey, black, white, I choose from that. Even clothes at home, if there are ten piles of clothes, one pile is bright colours, and the rest nine piles are bland.

Maybe it’s because you always hear that you’re good looking, but you seem to be used to the compliment and now as a joke
you shamelessly deal with it.

L: Hearing that story whether it was at a station or not, rather than getting used to it, I just don’t like it anymore. They could ask other questions, but if I go to a fan signing, fans say “Oh, you’re good looking” and don’t say anything else. No, I want to talk about something else. “Do you have any other questions? Isn’t there anything you’re curious about?" I ask that but they just always leave. It’s the same on shows. I want to talk about other things like my hobbies, specialties,
what I’m going to be doing soon, what I think about something, and more. I want to hear other questions…rather than questions
about talents, I want to hear deep and serious stories.

Do you like to talk?

L: I like to talk. Most of the time, I’m the one talking rather than listening. But I don’t talk much on our team. We don’t necessarily all have to be noisy. Those times, I watch the other six members from a listener’s point of view. If I talk, I usually have my attention somewhere else and can’t catch things around me, but if I just watch, then I can understand more about everyone else.

Is there anything new you’ve learned about yourself?

L: I still don’t know myself very well. Because of recent work, I went to a meeting, and someone I met there listened to me and said, "You seem to like things that are analogue, unlike your looks.” On the outside I look like I’d like trains or cars, but I’m not really interested in those things. Rather than that, interior, camera, and guitars catch my attention. The word “analogue” doesn’t perfectly match me, though. (laughs) Other than that, I’ve realized what kind of instruments and vocal tones suit me well. Honestly, the song "Back" doesn’t match my voice very well. Songs like “That summer” that are acoustic are the type of songs that suit me well. Singing all the time and recording a lot of songs and monitoring them have made me realize.

How are you in other parts?

L: I feel this in acting a lot. Before, if I acted very vaguely with my busy schedule, now I’ve kind of gotten grasp of it. This time in the SBS drama <My lovely girl> I’m taking the role of an idol group member, and I’m kind of getting the feel of how to do it. Maybe I can do it well with my style. Of course at first, I wasn’t very good at acting, and the results always gave out the aura of a rookie. But now, because I’m continuing with acting, I must’ve developed a lot, and compared to before, the bad remarks have decreased. Now I can show many good sides of myself.

When you receive criticism do you get depressed or do you get angry?

L: Because I have a lot of pride, I used to just pass by any negative feedback. Because I was young I didn’t know very well, and after debut I’ve changed a lot. Anyways they’re saying those things because they’re interested in me, and because in their eyes I’m not that great. I see their opinions as completing quests, and as I clear through those, I’m like building on my career. By myself, I can make myself a bit more perfect.

Then if you look back at those past five years, is there anything you regret?

L: There definitely is. There’s no way that there isn’t, and there’s a lot of parts that I haven’t been able to deal with properly. But to just look at that, there’s so many different things that I’ve done. Just because of that one regret, I don’t think that I collapse at once. It’s just something that I look back on. Just don’t make the same mistakes twice. For example, if I was cooking and I didn't make it wrong, then at least I won’t mess up again in the same way. Whether it’s acting or something else, I think it’s all like that. It’d be best if I didn’t make mistakes, but if I do make any, I won’t repeat it.

China Grows Mammal Embryos In Space

Weird, exciting, and a little bit deeply disturbing:

Chinese scientists have announced that they have been able to develop mice embryos within a microgravity satellite, the first time mammalian embryos have ever been developed in space.

The satellite was launched on April 6, carrying with it 6,000 embryos… The embryos were in very early stages of development, and 600 of those embryos were placed under a high-resolution camera, which would take photos every four hours for four days of their growth… the cells had entered blastocyst, the stage where noticeable cell differentiation occurs, about 72 hours after the satellite’s launch. That’s the same the timeline embryonic development takes on Earth.

The tests are also the first potential sign that humans could someday give birth in space.

‘The inspiration of being alone’ - self portrait

I’m Sami, 28 and from the UK. I’ve been taking photos for three years, and I enjoy creating images as well as snapping them; mainly conceptual work, macro shots, flowers and landscapes.

I’m currently working on my fourth project 365 (where you take a photo every day for a year). Hoping to make it to five straight years!
