Some people get a thrill by riding on a roller coaster or driving a fast car. People like 19 year old Russian photographer Vitaly Raskalov get their thrill by skywalking, which consists of scaling tall structures without safety equipment and uploading pictures to social media sites. The only way to get such breathtaking photos is to climb the structures yourself, or look at them on the internet. I will gladly do the latter and let the thrill-seekers provide us with spectacular views. My palms are sweaty just from looking at them.
An absolutely amazing set of photos by Bruno Dayan. Each photo has a dreamlike quality to it that embraces a world of fashion, nature, and everyday settings. I like the unique use of bokeh elements that also helps to create the illusion of a watery atmosphere. Don't forget to check the rest of his photos.
Loving the bold colors and movie still feel of these photos by Alex Prager. Each photo feels like there is a story behind it, and you just want to know what happens next. It's a rare talent to evoke such a strong feeling from viewers, but Alex definitely has a knack for it.
Some seriously cool aerial shots by 500px user Roof Topper. I especially like the perspective of the first photo. It takes some serious guts to sit on the edge of a tall building like that.
Epic. That is the one word I would use to describe this series by Damien Vassart. The combination of the crisp edges of the towering glass buildings with the fluid and organic movement of the clouds is an epic photo combination. The use of black and white creates a stark contrast between the buildings and sky, and also amplifies the amazing reflections in the glass.
A wonderful set of vintage postcards of Paris.There's something different about vintage postcards that make them feel more authentic than modern day postcards.
Philipp Klinger has an eye for beautiful lines, shapes and patterns. In this series, he captures one of the most iconic cities in the world: Paris, France, and does it great justice. Instead of taking conventional shots of the city, Philipp goes out and captures the things you might never notice.
If you've ever seen a photo of the Hindenburg Disaster, it was most likely this one by AP photographer Murray Becker. He shot a series of 15 pictures of the May 6, 1937 disaster, from the initial flare-up to to rescue of the survivors.
