Johan Lolos spent an entire year traversing Australia’s diverse terrains, documenting all of his findings on film. In spite–or perhaps because–of the danger to which he subjected himself daily, we think Lolos made the right choice in abandoning his Belgian homeland and entering the Outback. Lolos’ photos present a world that seems external to our own, but are made that much more exciting because–guess what–these places are right here on Earth. Check out the entire spread at Bored Panda.

Salvador Dali’s Mind-Bending Interpretation Of “Alice In Wonderland”

Since at least the 1960s, Lewis Carroll’s classic “Alice in Wonderland” has become something of an institution within hallucinogenic drug culture. From Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” waxing to The Matrix‘s pill-propelled trips to “Wonderland”, the book’s association with drugs–no matter how loosely rooted in reality–is unlikely to disappear any time soon. With that in mind, it of course makes sense that surrealist artist Salvador Dali, the man who boldly declared that he was drugs, would have provided his own illustrated interpretation of Alice and her trippy friends in 1969.

This collection of heliogravures (a fancy process where the artist etches figures onto a special gel-covered copper plate already exposed to film positives) eventually became one of Dalí’s most prized suites of all time. Blending the timeless whimsy of the children’s tale with the technicolor dreams of the 1960s, it’s easy to see why.

Oneonta Gorge: Reason Number 2457 Why Oregon Is A Beautiful State

Oneonta Gorge

Add this beauty as yet another reason why you need to make a trip to Oregon this fall. Oneonta Gorge enjoys its status as a botanical area given its unique aquatic plant life. Why the weird name? The first guy to photograph it (in the mid 19th century) was from the small town of Oneonta, New York.
