Lines in the Sand by Jim Denevan

A sand artist and surfer Jim Denevan from Santa Cruz, California, creates temporary drawings on sand and earth, that are eventually erased by waves and weather. What started as a hobby over 20 years ago has resulted in worldwide recognition. These drawings range in scale from smaller beach compositions to large scale land works the size of a city. Jim’s artwork is performed primarily outside in California but also many other locations around the world.

Photos Are Always Funnier When You Add a Caption (31 pics)

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
