Designed by Honorata Martin and Ula Wasielewska, the cleverly designed and flamboyant ArtHotel Lalala is located in the historic Polish seaside resort of Sopot. It is an incredible place for that look for a charming, airy space.
Should you blow a building? But it’s not neat at all. There will be too much dust and too many broken bricks. So Toronto builders came up with a more unique way on how to demolish a house. Maybe it’s not that unique, but it’s still pretty interesting. Remember to watch the video of this demolishing process!.. More imagea and video after the break...
Any ideas? What does it look like to you?This is one hundred million pennies field. These photos were taken at the Penny Harvest at Rockefeller Center that is sponsored by a non-profit organization called Common Cents. It is an amazing sight with millions and millions of pennies in a pool. Although the spectators tossed in other coins, the field mostly contains pennies.

They say timing is everything, but some photographsbecome brilliant or hilarious because both the timing and the angle work out just right. Sometimes this means catching people or objects lined up perfectly at the ideal moment. Other times these are staged for maximum effect. Here are 20 examples of photos taken at the exact right angle.
Illusions of Distance: These can be anything from poetic to comedic or even crass, as the above images demonstrate. Almost always such shots are staged, but sometimes in public you might catch just the right elements in alignment to create an accidental masterpiece of art or humor.
Impossible People and Animals: these can be silly or sublime, depending upon the subject, but almost inevitably result in a confused double-take. We all know what people can and can’t do, how they are built, what the limits of the human body are, yet some images challenge the brain and create illusions.
The Art of Juxtaposition: a set of objects, people and/or animals behaving normally independently can take on a new life entirely when properly juxtaposed in a picture. What might seem like very ordinary behavior, from grabbing a magazine to stretching for a job, can take on a new and strange meaning when captured on film from just the right angle.
