A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.
Throughout his travels, Andy Lee has taken a lot of pictures of beautiful and forlorn roads around the world. Now, this creative director, filmmaker, painter, doodler and photographer (and we can probably also add "renaissance man" to the list) has collected these photos in an amazing series called "Roads" that will fill you with wanderlust.
He opens the photo gallery with a perfectly fitting quote from Jack Kerouac: "There was nowhere to go but everywhere." The roads he's shot over the years are eerily desolate and still.
One of this accomplished photographer's series that he drew on was Blue Iceland, which we wrote about previously. Be sure to check out the rest of this prolific artist's work as well, because he's got a lot to show the world! And then check out the video here.
Nature is magnificent, and people have been trying to capture its beauty since the dawn of time. Whether it's cave paintings, oil paintings or photography, you can capture a single image of natural beauty, and try to convey it to others. In some cases, a single frame can't fully capture the enormity and grandeur the artist experiences. By using computers, we can now capture small moments in time, and preserve them as moving pictures:
1. Majestic waterfall
2. Butterfly flutter
3. The jump
5. Silent song
6. Pooling water
8. A hidden waterfall
10. Looming sandstorm
11. Icy falls
12. Sunset reflection perfection
13. Doing the rounds
14. A babbling brooke
15. Old mill

Though being busy can make us feel more alive than anything else for a moment, the sensation is not sustainable long term. We will inevitably, whether tomorrow or on our deathbed, come to wish that we spent less time in the buzz of busyness and more time actually living a purposeful life.
