Super Giant Rainbow Bubbles

Morphing, weaving in and out of reality, dressed in a most psychedelic array of colors - these are short-lived creations, super big monster bubbles, blown at Nye beach in Newport, Oregon.

Another awesome machine in the similar vein was actually built; check out this Holden Efijy concept from Australia (more images here):

The Beauty of Insect Eggs

Insect eggs are not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when we look for beauty. However, some of these exotic "cocoons" and Alien-like pods do look fascinating and colorful - just see this National Geographic gallery:

It's an unfortunate choice of tank in that Spirit of 1943 illustration. The M3 tank pictured had already stopped production by the start of the year and was declared 'limited standard' in April 1943, which meant it was unfit to be issued to combat units.

Sadly the UVB76 blog contents have been removed. This saddens me.

The big monster-like thing in the picture of fog in Russia was extracted from the movie The Mist (2007 film).

I can't compete with the rainbow bubbles - though I did something about half that size for a disabiilty sensory day some years ago.
Did this a couple of years ago, though...
