This new limited edition Leica camera combines Hello Kitty and the Playboy bunny, because wh0 doesn’t want a twee cartoon cat adorned with those famous bunny ears? I mean, they both have major birthdays this year (Hello Kitty turns 40 and Playboy turns 60), so I guess that’s as good an excuse to pair them off as any. And go figure, it’s Playboy who is going for the younger woman. Keep reading »
Meet Bumper and Willis, two rescue pit bulls, take nicely to photo booths. When they sat in from of photographer Lynn Terry’s camera, they knew exactly how to pose.
Bumper, the pup on the right, “came from a not-so-great area of St. Louis,” and a “gentleman tried to fight her … [but s]he wouldn’t engage,” according to owners Jason and Kelly Garrison, who found her at a local pit bull rescue. Willis, her companion in the photo, joined the Garrison family as a foster pet, but soon became a permanent member of the home. Willis’ mother was pregnant with him when she was rescued from a 500-dog fighting ring in 2009, and he was born about two weeks later. Keep reading »
I have mixed feelings about the series photographer Peter Hegre posted on Reddit of his wife, Luba Shumeyko, doing super-advanced yoga poses in the buff. One the one hand, the photographs are undeniably beautiful. On the other hand, well, a lot of things. I hate that they perpetuate the myth that yoga poses are supposed to look a certain way. The fact is, most bodies will never be able to do many of these poses and seeing someone else do them can make the practice seem unapproachable — especially to newbies. Also, sadly, because she is naked, some dope will see these pictures and mistakenly think that yoga is sexually charged practice. Actually, it’s not — or shouldn’t be, I should say. With some recent sex scandals that have rocked the yoga world, you can see how easily those lines get blurred. Naturally, Redditors had various reactions — from discussion of Luba needing to “eat a cheeseburger” to admiration of “her physical strength” to comments about “how much more detail you can see in muscle tone when clothing is off.” Because how could a woman be naked without everyone weighing in?

We already know Photoshop can be used as a makeup applicator, leg-lengthener, and rib-remover, but here’s a use for it that’s much more interesting: virtual time machine. In a series titled, “Imagine Finding Me,” photographer Chino Otsuka masterfully Photoshopped her adult self into photos from her childhood, creating double self-portraits that are both haunting and mesmerizing. “I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged,” says Otsuka, “and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” Check out a few more of her time machine photos after the jump!
