Creepy Type 2
This ‘oral alphabet’ must surely be a counterpart to the fleshy type I posted about a few months ago.
The toothy type has been created by Japanese designer Takayuki Ogawa who was inspired by the the mouth’s ability to express such a wide range of emotions by itself. This is clearly demonstrated in the many emoticons that use the mouth to describe the key emotion— :) :D :p. :/ —etc.
Brilliantly executed, they have been made from stone powder clay, acrylic paint, varnish, wood and iron, though, you might think twice before using them on that wedding invite…
A tree frog in Jember, Indonesia, shelters from the rain under a leaf. The amphibian reportedly held the leaf for 30 minutes before the storm passed.

The New World Geebird & Bamby
“”The New World" revisits anonymous places of the 20th century. It is set in a time characterized by the conflict of Modernist and Postmodernist convictions, its influence on later 20th century history, and ultimately, the world we live in today.
On a formal level, this conflict defines the aesthetics of the collection. The interrelation of rational graphic design and anonymous photorealism reflects the contrast of manmade ideals and the acceptance of life in chaos. “The New World" is shaped by an original set of rules, metrics and processes. This enables the revelation of eclectic utopias that, for better or worse, withhold the definition of a photograph."

i wonder how people describe me when they’re talking about me to someone who’s never met me
"I don’t pick people up on the street anymore. I just use Easy Taxi or Grab Taxi. They pay me $3 for every booking - so every time I pick someone up on the street, I lose $3. You see I don’t even on my company system anymore.
Comfort lost a lot of call business so they don’t like it. But the small companies don’t mind if you use the apps.
Every day I do about 20 jobs from the apps - that’s $60/day or an extra $1800 per month. Why would you pick up from the street when you can earn an extra $1800 per month?”
This photo was taken at the University of Minnesota by photographer Robert Wolfe in 1972. It was taken during surgery for an ectopic pregnancy. No one can deny the humanity of the unborn even in these early stages.
A doctor who was present for the surgery later shared this testimony:
“Years ago, while giving an anesthetic for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (at 2 months), I was handed what I believe was the smallest living human ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny human male swimming extremely vigorously in the amniotic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord. This tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was almost transparent, as regards the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers. The baby was extremely alive and did not look at all like the photos and drawings of ‘embryos’ which I have seen. When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this stage, blunt extremities, etc.”

this makes me want to cry/but is also incredible
