Awesome Superyachts: Nero

Its been a while, but I thought I would continue my little series on impressive superyachts. This is one that is very different to the first one (which was the ultra modern SeaForceOne). The absolutely beautiful Nero is however not old. Just not modern. She is in fact brand new, having been constructed in 2008 […]

Moon Landing

There are loads of iconic images that came from the moon landings and subsequent trips into space. I recently was at a presentation, and someone included this image which I had never seen. Apparently it has been recently released by NASA. It shows a young Neil Armstrong and is taken shortly after his return from […]

The United Colours of Benetton advertising has always courted controversy. Remember this one from 1991? Well they have done it again, with images probably inspired by this iconic 1979 image of Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honeker then the leader of the German Democratic Republik.

Hang on, Whats Barbie Doing?

Wow. Some of these pics are a tad  on the disturbing side, many are also incredibly beautiful. Amazing to see what Barbie is up to these days! Certainly the attention to detail in each of these scenes is incredible, even if the subject matter of what Barbie is getting up to is, well, less cool. […]

Stunning Photos from Around the World

These pictures were taken by photographer Tim Allen, while the BBC was shooting a recent programme called “Human Planet“. I actually missed the programme (will def catch up with it on iplayer). But the images that Allen took are incredible and even just on their own, even more so with his own storytelling of how […]
