It increases heart rate, constricts blood vessel and dilates air passages in order to deliver more blood to the muscles and more air to the lungs and thus help a human survive in a dangerous or unexpected situation. This is the mechanism of action of a hormone, called adrenaline or epinephrine. The word “adrenaline” today is, perhaps, the only example of a medical term, known and used widely beyond medical sphere. It has become a synonym for excitement, passion, adventure, and risk, and it is now closely associated with extreme activities, such as mountaineering, jumping, and challenging sports, such as racing, parachuting, or skiing. We have devoted our today’s gallery of photographs to all kind of activities, where adrenaline plays the leading role, being at the same time the aim and the means of achieving that aim.

Some artists have so much of a good taste that it hurts. Visiting a few places I got to find these amazing, beautiful illustrations and papercut works that simply took my breath away.
Carsten Witte, born in 1964, is the venerable priest of beauty. Already as a little boy of three he slack-jadedly gazed after beauties that where passing by when he was walking at his mother’s hand. Many years later, after he had attended the Bielefeld school of photography, worked as assistant for renowned photographers and started his career as a freelancer with his own studio in 1989, he could finally dedicate himself exclusively to his perfect esthetics at taking shots of beautiful woman’s bodies, their eroticism and chasteness and the sensual play of shadow and light, whereas he has never betrayed the deference to the beautiful creature.
The leopard is a member of the Felidae family and the smallest of the four “big cats” in the genus Panthera, the other three being the tiger, lion and jaguar. Once distributed across eastern and southern Asia and Africa, from Siberia to South Africa, the leopard’s range of distribution has decreased radically because of hunting and loss of habitat. It is now chiefly found in sub-Saharan Africa; there are also fragmented populations in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Indochina, Malaysia, and China.
Powerful storms swept through the South and Midwest regions of the United States over the past several days, bringing with them heavy rainfall, flooding, hailstorms, lightning, and hundreds of devastating tornadoes. As of this morning, the death toll from the storm system has nearly reached 250 — at least 128 of those in hard-hit Alabama. Neighborhoods have been flattened, thousands are without power across the region, and efforts to aid the trapped or injured continue in regions where many roads have become impassable. As residents work to recover what they can, they are preparing for yet another storm system predicted to pass through starting Saturday. Gathered here are images from the storm-damaged south and central U.S. over the past several days.
What is there not to like about Metropol Parasol? The waffle-like crown structure in Seville, Spain has been finally completed in April 2011 after a competition held by the city of Seville in 2004.

Is there any other source of artistic inspiration, which could compete in the mightiness and richness with the humans themselves and with the nature? Beauty of a human body, sincerity of a human heart, and pureness of a human soul have always inspired artists to create true art with the same values expressed. Nature with its perfectness and harmony is another powerful source of inspiration, which is easy to recognize looking through the collection of photographs, chosen for our today’s inspirational set. Of course, speaking about digital art with its multiple and diverse forms – sources of artists’ inspiration also diversify. Today, one can be inspired with a TV commercial, magazine headline, or a new concept car displayed. However, whatever source of inspiration is, the result of the art process is what matters and what is valued…

Reclaim Your City: A global call to arms from urban artists to refresh bland, gray urban areas with statements of political and individual intent.
While in most cities they work under constant risk of arrest, Berlin, Germany’s capital, has become an urban artist’s Utopia – areas left empty both by the city’s division and unification are a morally, if not a legally legitimate canvas; posters, cut-outs and stickers splattered across once rotting fences and luminous, surreal images lightening the murkiest of industrial wastelands. Neighborhoods such as Prenzlauer Berg may have all but lost their artist population but new well-to-do inhabitants and families still tolerate the so-called ‘graffiti’ that has shaped its identity. It is- as much as the Nazi architecture of the Olympic Stadium, and the Communist spectre of the TV tower – a major part of their legacy.
