Being a Dali fan, "Cows and Kites" is beautiful. For me Dali took paint and created life, this guy takes life and shows the art behind it. Love that pic. As for the guy that got that close to take the pic of the Polar Bear emerging, incredible pic, massive courage.

The polar bear must have been a case of "right time, right place".

You can tell from the angle, that it's not a telephoto lens zoom in either.

I love that Malaysian street scene.

I could not agree more about the Malaysian street scene as it is on the edge or real and fantasy/dream....at least to our common experience in the "western" world.

Jaw-dropping. Loved looking at these. The polar bear one in particular is just fantastic. Right time, right place = pure magic.
