Surfers are an exciting and interesting subject for the outdoor photographer who is lucky enough to live near the coast. While life can be made a little easier if you have a telephoto lens, it's not always necessary. We think these shots are a great collection of surfers doing what hey do best.

An optical illusion spelling "optical illusion." Or "illusion optical". Either way, this is so meta it's even messing with your heads.
Sexy comes standard with the 2011 Subaru Forester.

And think how much you complain when the elevator's out of order. Sisyphus didn't have it so great, now did he?
Advertising is a form of communication used to persuade an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to take some action with respect to products, ideas, or services. For the companies who are trying to get their product or service out in print format, the task is ever more challenging and difficult. if they don’t catch your attention within seconds they are considered failed.
So, to really stand out of the crowd, the idea has to be really out of the box, something that makes you laugh, talks about it or at least make you look twice. Humorous ads remain one of the few effective ways to engage an audience in a very saturated advertising market.
Here is a beautiful high quality showcase of creative & funny print adverts for your inspiration. This post will keep you laughing!

You know this famous woman, though you may not recognizer her like this. But stare at the red dot on her nose for 30 seconds, then look at a blank surface and blink quickly.
These images were designed by a Japanese psychiatrist named Akiyoshi Kitaoka.
Bottom line, if you look at these and they are not moving, that means you are relaxed. If you look at these and they are moving slowly or even moderately, you are a little bit stressed and could use a vacation. If you look at these and they are moving really, really fast, you better call a psychologist cause some shit is about to start falling off of you at any minute. Just kidding, but it does mean that you are seriously feeling the stress. Take a chill pill immediately.

There's some clever advertising. It might be better advertising to actually make a bottle of beer that big.
Gallery of 19 legendary black and white photographs that had been turned into full color photographs using Photoshop. The mind behind these magical transformations is Photoshop maven Sanna Dullaway. Not only is it impressive work by Sanna, but it’s also mind boggling that you can actually restore the color in these photographs that were taking decades ago.

One of the ways to get something architecturally novel built is to tell people it is temporary. Despite the fact that 99.9% of buildings are temporary over a few generations, people seem to tolerate something as long as it will be gone before they are. As a result, several of the worlds most famous pieces of architecture (Barcelona and Rietveld pavilions) or some of the worlds most famous city landmarks (Eiffel Tower, London Eye) have remained because they won people over after the fact.
The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower (French: La Tour Eiffel, [tuʁ ɛfɛl], nickname La dame de fer, the iron lady) is a puddled iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. Built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. The tower stands 320 metres (1,050 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-story building.
During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. However, because of the addition, in 1957, of the antenna atop the Eiffel Tower, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France, after the Millau Viaduct. The tower has three levels for visitors. Tickets can be purchased to ascend, by stairs or lift (elevator), to the first and second levels. The walk from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level. The third and highest level is accessible only by lift - stairs exist but they are not usually open for public use. Both the first and second levels feature restaurants.
The tower has become the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France, often in the establishing shot of films set in the city.

This is an elaboration of the classic illusion showing either two faces in profile or a vase/goblet (if anyone still uses goblets.) There's more things to see in this image. How many can you find?
If you have an affinity for yachting and $100+ million in disposable income, besides considering Roman Abramovich’s Megayachts, the Maltese Falcon is all you. Should your preference lean towards a modest one week rental of the mega-yacht, it should only set you back about $600,000.
Although the Maltese Falcon is the largest sailing yacht in the world when measured on deck (LOD – Length On Deck), at 305 feet in length, Eos is the largest private sailing yacht in the world overall (LOA – Length Over All). The Maltese Falcon sports what is called a DynaRig, which means it is effectively a square rigger, and each of the three freestanding masts support six yardarms, which are connected rigidly to the mast.
The yacht’s 25,791 square feet (2,400 square meters) of sails are set between the yards in such a way that when deployed there are no gaps to the sail plan, enabling each spar’s sails to work as a single airfoil. Unlike a conventional square rigger, the yards have a built in camber of 12%, and the sails are trimmed to the wind direction by rotating the entire mast, which is operated by a sail control system on the bridge. When not deployed, the mega yacht’s sails furl right into the mast itself
It is also efficient, reaching nearly 20 knots under sail alone. The Maltese Falcon’s interior is as luxurious as you’d expect, of course, with the main feature being the atrium. Here, the three decks are united by a circular stairway, surrounding the main mast, and creating a spiraling effect. This is all enhanced by natural light streaming in from the top to the lower decks through transparent floors. The main deck of the Maltese Falcon is a big open space with a main saloon, a huge aft-cockpit, two studio areas and an impressive dining room.
For sleeping there are five lower deck staterooms and one passage cabin on the upper deck with a private sun bathing area, and direct access to the mega yacht’s wheelhouse. Her revolutionary sailing system – the DynaRig – set a new milestone in yachting history: three self-standing and rotating masts hosting 15 sails for a total sail area of 25,791 square feet for unrivaled, performance maneuverability and record-shattering speed; she can complete Atlantic crossings in ten days.
For the rest of us aspiring mega-yacht owners that may never have the pleasure of boarding such a beautiful specimen, there are plenty of pictures to nod in disbelief at. Enjoy!

Luxurious undergarments and Japan's predilection for useless inventions, together at last.
The Triumph Lingerie company is fond of unveiling novelty bras in Japan on a yearly basis, most of which never get past the prototype phase.
The Baseball BraThe gloves are functional and can detach from the bra.
The Support Japan BraWords of encouragement from 54 individuals in 36 countries and regions are printed along with corresponding flags on the bra corset and skirt, to bring hope to the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami. 2011.

I'm not a kind of man that eat cereal for breakfast. Apparently, most Malaysian prefer heavy breakfast like roti canai, nasi lemak or some fried food. Well... not that I entirely do not like cereal breakfast, because I do eat them once in a while. Like once in 2-3 years. LOL...
However, I like something retro and classic and these boxes of cereal really caught my attention especially Trix as I do like those cereal...
