Escape Monday: Neon Waterfalls

Waterfall7If there was ever a Monday I’d like to escape, it’s this one for deffos. My loyal readers might have noticed I didn’t post on Friday – that’s because not only am I swamped at work right now, but I’m sick as a dog.

I’ve posted waterfalls before for Escape Monday, but never ones like these. These images are the brainchild of Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard who used a simple concept to get amazing results.

They call this technique “Neon Luminance” and it basically involved dropping multi-coloured, high-powered Cyalume glow sticks into waterfalls and photographing the results on exposures varying from 30 seconds to 7 minutes.

Escape Monday: Pics From The “Best Of Russia 2012” Competition

tower-perspective_2494677kRussians are a weird bunch at the best of times. The only first-hand experience I’ve had of them was when J-Rab and I were in Thailand on an island tour with about 30 of them in a speedboat with us.

The trip lasted a good 10 hours and during the course of it we saw some of Thailand’s most beautiful islands, but do you think these flippin’ Ruskies cracked one goddamn smile at any point during the trip?!

It was like we were stuck on a boat with a buncha miserable shop mannequins. That’s what made the photos I’m about to show you all the more remarkable. The depth of emotion they capture and communicate is truly amazing.

Escape Monday: Insane Photos of Ocean Lava

SelwayandKale1Lava has always fascinated me. Something about it is so primordial – rocks in their liquid form, I mean shit, how badass is that?!

The following pics were shot by photographers Nick Selway and CJ Kale who claim they are the only photographers to ever enter the surf next to an active volcano to do lava surf photography.

The resulting photos are nothing short of insane. Two powerful elements merging and swirling together, duking it out to see which is mightier. Some of the pics literally look like Titans doing battle so yeah, if this doesn’t help you escape Monday for a few minutes, nothing will.

Mindgun – One Seriously Badass Site

The saying goes that you’ll never meet your future wife in a bar and I think there’s a lot of truth in that, but man-o-man, if I had to write a list of all the twisted, crazy fuckers who’ve ended up being great friends that I met in bars, it would be a goddamn mile long!

Mr D was one of those fine, upstanding maniacs (read this story as proof). I met him on a night when I was playing a gig in Grahamstown. He was knocking back a pint of stout and eyeing the bar like at any minute he might pull a knife out and lay into someone for making eye contact, so naturally I walked over and started up a conversation with the man.
