The Joys of the Water Slide

14 The Joys of the Water Slide

Krista Long began snapping pics of people sliding down a water slide after many visits to the local water park with her tween daughters. “I set up my lawn chair to watch the entertainment as bodies shot one by one out the blue tube, suspended ever so briefly before crashing into the pool below,” Long told ABC News. “I started bringing my camera set to the highest shutter speed, hoping to freeze that moment in time just an instant before the plunge.” The result is an action-packed series of photos on Long’s Flickr page that show emotions ranging, she says, “from pure joy to fear, in anticipation of the inevitable splash-down!”

Pretty Power Plants

“You wouldn’t normally associate power stations with beautiful scenic shots but one photographer has traveled nearly 2000 to track down the ugliest energy plants and show them in a whole new light. Czech snapper, Radek Kalhous, uses Google Earth to find the perfect locations for his unique pictures and arrives at each site after sunset to create the atmospheric shots.

The 40-year-old uses nothing more than clever lighting and a tilt-shift lens to capture the ugly power stations in a series of dreamy photographs which resemble something from a model toy world. Radek has clocked up almost 2000 miles so far in his quest to create the thought-provoking photos”. – Caters News
