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 […]

Mukesh Ambani’s Yacht

I’ve written here before about Mukesh Ambani’s home in Mumbai, which is the world’s first USD 1 billion residence (and incidentally is 25 stories high). Well it seems that Ambani has done it again, with the creation of this simply stunning Yacht. The yacht will be moored in Mumbai and built by a french shipbuilder. […]

Spell AC/DC…

How hard can it be to spell the name of your favourite band, especially when your favourite band happens to be, well, AC/DC? Maybe if you are from Greenacre, and the pressure is on because if you spell it correctly you get not only a CD, but you go in the draw for a rock-star […]

Jumping at Shadows

Well, less jumping at them, and more fighting them. This is pretty awesome, Samurai master Taichi Saotome’s New Year performance in which he fights shadows and projections. Awesome. To find out more about Taichi Saotome, check out his wikipedia page here. Apparently he is a famous actor known for playing both very good looking men and […]

Different Interpretations of the Creative Process

This is brilliant. I never thought about it really, but of course in some way, everyone who is truly at the top fo their game has in some ways applied creativity to get there. Composers, Copywriters, fashion designers, but also atheletes (“listen, when the gun goes, I run like hell”) and Physicists. Sadly I cannot […]

The Boston Globe always seems to have the best photos of world events. I have posted photos from Afghanistan here before. Check out the below from the recent Egypt unrest, and definitely go their site and look at the rest. Its impressive stuff, and documents what has been happening in Egypt brilliantly.
