Halloween London Zombie Walk

Standard

Halloween or Hallowe’en (a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”), also known as All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows (or All Saints). According to many scholars, it was originally influenced by western European harvest festivals and festivals of the dead with possible pagan roots, particularly the Celtic Samhain. Others maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has Christian roots.
Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as “guising”), attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.

In London has a Zombie walk to celebrate Halloween for 6 consecutive years. As well as the walk itself……….when walking from pub to pub, you should also act and behave like a zombie.

I have participate on the last 3 years and its great fun, everyone makes a big effort to actually look like a zombie and they give prizes for the best dressed.

Here are some pictures of the London Zombie Walk VI

Custom Built Orchestra

Standard

Musician and sound artist Diego Stocco is known for his unique multi-track music videos that combine sounds sampled from common objects and modified instruments. In his latest video Custom Built Orchestra Stocco endeavored to create nearly a dozen custom instruments, some completely from scratch and others from instruments he acquired with structural defects that he then altered to create new musical devices. The result is pretty amazing.

Affinity

Standard

Brad Wilson worked with a number of notable New York photographers before establishing his own career, as both a commercial and fine art photographer, in the city in 1996. Brad’s work has appeared around the world as part of advertising campaigns, magazines, annual reports, album covers, and book covers. He’s now based in Santa Fem New Mexico.

His new work AFFINITY, rather than going out into nature to make wildlife photography, Brad brings his subjects into the studio to create these unique animal portraits. The end result, completely devoid of distractions, allows the eye to focus entirely on the animal, its peculiarities and mannerisms.

Fire Devil

Standard

20121002-130214.jpg

Filmmaker Chris Tangey shot this incredible footage of a ‘fire devil’ near Alice Springs, Australia on September 11th. In the unedited, raw footage recently provided by Tangey you can watch as the tornado—which is technically more of a dust devil—towers over 100 feet (30 meters) high.

Like the dust devils that spring up on clear, sunny days in the deserts of the Southwest, a fire devil is birthed when a disproportionately hot patch of ground sends up a plume of heated air. But while dust devils find their heat source in the sun, fire devils arise from hot spots in preexisting wildfires.

These plumes form in a very small region over the land. They start to rise very rapidly, and as things start to rise, they suck the surrounding air in like a vacuum. Then you get this twisting that begins to resemble a vortex.

As the vortex rises and sucks the blaze up with it, its diameter begins to shrink and, like an ice skater pulling in her limbs to gather speed in a spin, its rotation accelerates.
