Taken near Bixby Bridge north of Big Sur, CA, this is a 12 shot vertical panorama taken around 4 am this past Monday, when the Milky Way was pretty high in the sky. The glow near the horizon is a lighthouse just around the bend.
All shots are 20 seconds, except the bottom one, which is 3 minutes
“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

Planking and the Harlem Shake are old news. Are you ready for latest internet meme? Right now the youth of Japan, particularly schoolgirls, are taking awesome photos in which a central figure appears to be unleashing a massive energy attack that sends their surrounding peers flying.
In anticipation of a new Dragon Ball Z movie, these photos are posted on Twitter having been tagged as either Makankosappo or Kamehameha, both of which are energy attacks from the Dragon Ball manga and anime series.

Riding the Pyramid
Climbing up the Great Pyramids of Giza is punishable by imprisonment up to 3 years, but pretty pictures don’t take themselves, so sometimes risks have to be taken. A small, intrepid band of russians visited Cairo and entered the Pyramid grounds as tourists, hiding from guards as visiting hours ended and then making the long, arduous trek to the top of some of humanity’s most ancient structures. Once atop the Egyptian skyline, they took some magnificent photos while evading detection from the guards, but also found engravings in many different languages: the rest of the world’s contribution to Egypt’s towering history.
