- those who can only draw animals

Ontario, Canada-based photographer Matt Molloy recently created a gorgeous series of sky images by stacking multiple photos onto one. The individual photos are most often taken from the timelapses he shoots. The final photo has a stunning painterly effect, almost as if someone had taken a paintbrush to the sky and smeared its beautiful colors.
When asked at 500px how many photos it took to create the one seen above, he replied, “I’m not exactly sure, but I used hundreds of photos to create this one image.”

“Beware of Artists” - Actual poster issued by Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1950s, at height of the red scare.
My absolute favorite poster as of now.
Very cool! That’s right, we all have the potential to be “dangerous!”

Using a combination of high speed photography and precise paint splashes, artist Jack Long creates liquid flowers, which are basically paint that has splashed in such a way and captured at the right moment that it looks like a flower.
Even more impressively, a lot of the pieces depict flowers in vases, rather than just the flower itself.

if there’s one thing that being a rhetoric major has shoved into my head time after time is that society is not as free from media as they think they are
sure, you can look at something and even go “wow, i don’t really agree with that but whatever it’s “just a game”” or “just an advertisement” but that’s just as damaging as not thinking about it
choosing to accept problematic things as normality doesn’t make you any better than those who are ignorant
we are a media consuming society, and every facet of our lives now (for better or for worse) is constantly soaked in it.
there are so many ways media controls society either purposely or even accidentally, and that certain races or orientations or genders or mental states are seen as normal is really scary
so when a piece of media pushes stereotypes or is damaging to a group of people, it is wise to question it
it’s wise to question everything! you can absolutely love something while criticizing the hell out of it. but to shrug it off is to ignore how much you’re being told what is okay in your life when it really isn’t.
