…It’s Website Wednesday: Disinterested Pug With Found Objects?

Disinterested Pug With Found Objects

W/ Extra Duck was a fantastic Flickr Photo Set, but its crown has now been passed to my new favorite Flickr Photo Set: Disinterested Pug With Found Objects.

As the appropriately labeled title suggests, the set is filled with pictures of a pug that couldn’t care less about his surroundings, standing next to objects that have been found by his owner on what I presume must be rather entertaining walks.

From SpongeBob costumes and spare tires to the nine of spades and a porta-potty named ‘Honey Bucket’, the pug manages to remain steadily and consistently disinterested throughout the entire set, though he does behave himself rather well for a dog without a care in the world.

Guess it must be nice having more wrinkles on your face than objects that interest you…

…Denim factories are interesting places?

Denim Factory

David Friedman recently had a chance to tour through a denim factory in Kentucky that specializes in high-end jean distressing for top labels and designers, and if you’ve ever wondered what goes into making the perfect fade or loosening just the right amount of fabric to make those hundred dollar and up jeans you always see at the stores, then it’s definitely worth a look.

…The Vanities Girls are beautiful?

Vanities Girls

In September of ’06, Vanity Fair changed the format of their opening to the Vanities section to feature a full-page, 50s-style pinup of an up-and-coming star.

    These shapely ingénues are on the cusp of fame or have just hit it big; they have names you need to know and faces you won’t have trouble remembering.

Thankfully, they’ve taken those beautiful photos and turned them into an online slideshow for your viewing pleasure.

…Denis Darzacq takes unique photos?

Denis Darzacq

Denis Darzacq’s photography is fantastic (and almost unbelievable) when you consider the fact that “there is nothing false in these scenes. These moments really occurred. There is no fiction, no retouching or special effects”.

Instead, he uses athletic and gymnastic young folks as well as good timing to make it look like his subjects are about to smack the ground face first.

In Denis’ own words, “at the moment of the leap, chance and gravity also intervened”.

…Faces look funny upside-down?

Continuing the theme of interesting photo techniques, this one involves putting parts of a face on your chin and then taking an upside-down photo of your face:
