Photographer Tadas Černiauskas

You gotta love photography. In what other profession can you have fun like this and get paid for it?

Photographer Tadas Černiauskas captured portraits of willing subjects who posed for the portrait as a photographer’s assistant aimed a running leaf blower at their faces. Check them out here: Blowing in the Wind - Leaf Blower Portraits! They’re pretty amazing (and fun).

Now I’d like to see him do the same type of series, except with the subjects being members of Congress and the Obama administration. Now those would be popular!

Rewriting human history


have always been fascinated by antiquity. This fascination began early in high school when I learned about the ancient Sumerian civilization. I was later taken with Egypt and then Plato’s Atlantis. And this fascination continues today.

So I was delighted to find this interesting and informative documentary on Hulu, narrated by Charlton Heston—Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History.
