…Eric Solheim captured One Year in 40 Seconds?

Four Seasons

Eric Solheim snapped images and captured audio from the same spot outside of his house for an entire year, and then stitched them together into a fantastic time-lapse video called One Year In 40 Seconds:

In addition to the video, Eric also documented his entire process, including the story, the camera, the settings, the software, the techniques and more, and posted it all on his blog, along with every source file that he created under a creative commons license so that you can take his work and experiment with it as well to see what you can come up with.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Moodstream

Moodstream

Moodstream is a fantastically powerful “brainstorming tool” from Getty Images that is “designed to help take you in inspiring, unexpected directions”.

By tweaking the sliders, you can choose between images, footage, audio, or just a stream of fresh ideas that will bring a whole new creative palette straight to you.

The concept is actually pretty interesting, and the end result is inspiring and interesting in an advanced screensaver sort of way, so it’s definitely worth a look.

…Some Photoshop work is disasterous?

Photoshopped Disasters

With great power comes great responsibility, and unfortunately, the work of those featured on Photoshop Disasters severely lacks some of the former, and most of the latter.

The site is a collection of professionally Photoshopped images that skipped a round or two of quality control, because the end result is often a monstrous concoction of inhuman impossibilities that will make you question your day job. (Get paid to erase butt cracks from the covers of magazines? Sure!)

Sadly, these types of images fed the world a definition of literally unachievable beauty, so keep this site in mind the next time you find yourself saying “I wish I could look like that”.

…It’s Things Thursday: Fuck This Book?

Fuck This Book

Fuck This Book is a collection of unaltered and untasteful images of “real public signs that have been mischievously altered by stickers bearing the most expressive of all four-letter words”.

What’s the message?

Thankfully, nothing: “This is not social commentary. There is no message. It’s not meant to offend, exploit, or embarrass anyone.”

Instead, it’s just meant to be a juvenile, profane, and timeless look at our lives in a world that has been persuasively transformed.

…Digg wants to show you the pics?

Digg Pics

When Digg added an Images category to the site, they also added a new program to their Digg Labs called Pics.

As images are submitted or Dugg, they move from the left to the right of the screen in columns by category.

Though, as with all Digg Labs products, it’s of limited use in terms of speeding up the Digg process, it does give an interesting look into the always changing, evolving, and updating world of Digg, as well as Digg trends in real time, so it’s definitely worth a look.
