People Whose Clothes Blend Seamlessly into the Background

Picture this: have you ever accidentally worn an outfit that made you blend in with your surroundings and you felt kind of foolish about it?

These photos are NOT like that because they are the work of a very skilled photographer, but they sure are beautiful to look at.

Photographer Joseph Ford has a book dedicated to this kind of work called Invisible Jumpers. Take a look at these pics.

1. That is pretty impressive.

2. Up the escalator you go.

3. Matching with a building.

4. This one is great.

Tom and Dre, 2019 48 hours knitting by @ninadoddknits Thanks to @burlandmusic and @_andrenels for agreeing to pose. Often when looking for models I wander the streets for hours or days, searching for inspiration. I’d wanted to step away from the stereotypes of people who fish so I went to a skatepark. Tom and Dre were surprised to be asked to model but agreed. I’d scouted the location on a grey day, and the jumper colours only matched the sea wall when the sky was overcast, so we had to wait hours for clouds to come over. We weighed the fishing line down with a thermos flask to make it look like Tom had just caught a big fish. No idea what the real anglers thought we were playing at. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #invisiblejumpers #knittedcamouflage #knitting #knittersofinstagram #hoxtonminipress #ninadodd #josephford #blendingin #fishing #angling #fishermenofinstagram #fishermen #aquamarine #seaside #seawall #anglers #pecheurs

I spotted this location in Brighton a while back. I loved the rich palette of greens and blues, the dilapidated door and the ragged grey mop against the wall. It seemed the perfect place to photograph Fimber Bravo, the renowned steel pan player. I’d come across his captivating music a few years ago and wanted to work with him for a while. Nina, knitter extraordinaire, loves a challenge and spent weeks working on this jumper. Time well spent. Thanks to #fimberbravo for modelling, @dukeofwoollington as always, @infinityfoodsbrighton for allowing us to take over your loading bay and @lilli.bpayne for your help on the shoot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fimberbravo #knittedcamouflage #infinityfoods #brighton #brightonlife #knittersofinstagram #camouflage #musician #portrait #steelpan #dreadlocks #leaves #green #chateauoart

Research Says You’re Worse at Picking Good Photos of Yourself Than a Stranger Is

Taking a good selfie may seem simple, until you actually try to do it. Often, you’ll wind up taking approximately 5,000 photos before you see one that’s cute enough to post.

But who deems a photo “cute enough”? Beauty is subjective, and according to one study, you’re not the best person to judge which photos of yourself are the best.

In 2017, researchers in Australia had 102 students rank photos of themselves by their attractiveness, trustworthiness, dominance, confidence, and competence. The participants rated each photo from one to 10 in each category. Then 160 strangers did the same thing for each picture.

Surprisingly, the students’ favorite photos did not rank as well with strangers as the others. This was the opposite of what the researchers had predicted.

“This result is contrary to the prediction based on self-presentation literature, that participants would select more flattering images of themselves,” they wrote.

So, it might be a good idea to seek out a second opinion before you pick which selfie to post — at least when looking attractive to other people is the goal, such as on dating apps.

But why, exactly, are people so bad at picking good photos of themselves? You’d think we’d be better at it because we know our own faces better than anyone else.

Well, that also means we’re more biased than other people.

We may see ourselves as hotter and more trustworthy, for example. Moreover, you see yourself in a specific way before you even glance at a photo, and you’re typically looking for a photo that matches up with what’s in your head. Strangers have no such biases.

So in this case, maybe don’t go with your gut.

20 Funny Memes About the New “Joker” Movie

It’s been tough to avoid the press surrounding the release of Joker. Joaquin Phoenix plays the title character, and by all accounts his performance is amazing – but that’s where the positives end for many (although many others seem to have loved it).

Critiques run the gamut, but the bottom line is that a certain section of filmgoers and critics worry that, instead of critiquing the culture that creates mass shooters, Joker glorifies the revenge ideal that fuels many of them.

Now, you’ll have to see the movie for yourself if you want to make up your mind (I doubt it will be a waste of your time, honestly, and could be good fodder for conversation!), but if you’re looking for some internet discourse, well…look no further than these 20 memes.

These Pictures of Endangered Animals Have as Many Pixels as There Are Remaining Members of the Species

We’re seeing a mass extinction of animals and plants from the face of the earth at a frightening pace. It’s strange to think that our children or grandchildren will live in a world where giraffes or white rhinos could cease to exist in the wild – could, perhaps, vanish altogether.

Every Pixels is one animal. The more pixelated the image, the closer it is to extinction.

The World Wildlife Fund wanted to shine a spotlight on the often-forgotten but still looming tragedy, so they worked with creative designers Nami Hoshino, Yoshiyuki Mikami, and Kazuhiro Mochizuki at Hakuhodo C&D in Tokyo to create the concept of population pixelation.

Recently, Imgur user JJSmooth44 made a followup to the project then posted it on Imgur and Reddit, and people seem just as taken.

The results, as you can see, are stark and sad.

Sadder still? These population declines are all driven by humans.

Will we do something to turn the tide in time?

That remains to be seen.

But as long as there are a few pixels left, there’s still hope.

Serbian artist Uroš Predić…

Serbian artist Uroš Predić made a painting of drunks in his village returning home from the pub at dawn. He hoped the painting would convince them to change their ways but instead they ended up loving it. Some even complimented how accurate it was.

When a painting was stolen…

When a painting was stolen from the Museum of Bad Art, the museum initially offered a reward of $6.50 for its return. This was latter upped to $36.73. Ten years later, the thief contacted the museum and demanded a $5000 ransom for the painting. No ransom was paid, but it was returned anyway.

Hike Atlanta’s ‘Doll’s Head Trail’ If You Really Want to Be Creeped out

If you’re looking for a different kind of scare this Halloween season and you find yourself in the Southeast, you should consider making a trip to Atlanta to check out Doll’s Head Trail, a one-of-a-kind, eerie experience that will leave you unsettled.

The trail is in Atlanta’s Constitution Lakes Park, and it is decorated with, as the name implies, creepy doll’s heads.

The park used to be home to a brick factory that closed about 50 years ago. Since then, the woods have overtaken the area, and in 2003 the county bought the 125-acre site and built boardwalks and trails so people could enjoy the natural beauty of the spot.

But in addition to natural beauty, there’s also the doll’s heads.

A local carpenter named Joel Slaton created the trail after seeing all the discarded junk that littered the park. Slaton decided to use the junk to make the trail into an art space with doll’s heads, and other forgotten materials, dotting the hiking trail.

Slaton encourages others to add their own art pieces to the trail, with the only stipulation being that any materials used must come from inside the park itself. So if you do go, you can do some exploring and digging around to add to the creepiness of Doll’s Head Trail.

If you do decide to hike the trail, you’ll forget that you’re in the middle of a huge American city and instead think you’ve wandered into a nightmare. Sounds good to me!

Also, I bet this would be a great place for a first date. You’d find out immediately if your date is as weird as you are…
