So a dude loses his job and his wife, grabs his camera and a motorcycle and sets off with a friend to drive north until the road runs out. Check out their awesome pix and if you want to read more, their site.
Photographer Sandro Giordoan depicts people in the moment after a fall in his darkly humorous photo series "In Extremis (bodies with no regret)". In each photo the people are posed in comically awkward positions and photographed from unflattering angles. They are also surrounded by their belongings and always shown with one object in hand, as if it had been rescued from the fall in the person's final act. The series is Giordoan's commentary on the overwhelming nature of everyday life and people's attachment to their possessions.

Riding a five-ton elephant, whom she called ‘my brother’, chilling with a cheetah or hugging a giant bullfrog as if it were a Teddy bear. The childhood of a French girl Tippi Degre sounds more like a newer version of Mowgli, rather than something real. A white child, she was born in Namibia to French wildlife photographer parents, and grew up in Africa. Tippi spent her whole childhood playing with wild animals including lion cubs, a mongoose, a snake, a cheetah, baby zebra, giraffes and crocodiles.
The little girl saw nothing unusual about her company: “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends,” she once said.
Tippi is now 23 years old, and the only child to wildlife photographer parents Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre, who published her photos in a book called Tippi of Africa. “It was magical to be able to be free in this nature with this child. She was a very lucky little girl – she was born and raised until the age of 10 totally in the wild.” said Sylvie.

A friend told me to go to a certain latitude and longitude on Google Maps. When I noticed it seemed to be in the middle of an African desert, I thought he was just sending nonsense.
But when I zoomed in, my mind was blown. I noticed a tiny icon that looked like an airplane. So I did some more research and discovered there’s an incredibly tragic and beautiful story behind it.
Here it is, from start to finish. UTA Flight 772 was a scheduled flight operating from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to Paris CDG airport in France.
